VidSpace is a video-sharing website based in El Kadsre founded by former Seymour Games employee Tyrrell Takara. Launched in 1997, the site was the precursor to YouTube. As of 2019, over 28 billion videos have been uploaded to the site, while the first 50 were uploaded during its first month of activity.

Its main competitors are YouTube, Vimeo, and DailyMotion.

History

Pre-Alpha testings

VidSpace began development in 1992 by Driller Engine programmer Tyrrell Takara, who has previously worked with Seymour Games and other independent developers at the time.

Because Internet access bandwidth and video transcoding technology at the time were limited, Takara had to make the plugin called "VidSpace Player", capable of streaming embedded MPEG-1 videos with WAV audio in the webpage. Because Takara has little to no experience of website development, he contacted few Netspace employees to help him develop the site.

Launch

On January 17, 1997, VidSpace was launched on the internet. The first video of the site titled "Me testing my video website project" was uploaded to the site two hours later. It was successful with 50 videos being uploaded each month of activity. Most of the multimedia players added support for VidSpace. The offices were in El Kadsre City whilst the servers and international mainframe operations were based in Glonisla.

At first, VidSpace's custom-designed Linux-powered mainframes were prone to rendering playback ID errors, 500 Internal Server Errors and in some cases, browser crashes due to faulty hard drives, and as a result server engineers were given a special hammer as part of their regular electronic mainframe repair kits. When banged against the area of the drive, it would temporarily fix the problem. The business end was made out of a patented lead-hardened Tyvek mixture developed by University of El Kadsre students, and formulated so it wouldn't damage the internal electronics when pounded on.

Rise of VidSpace

The success of VidSpace led to creating apps and clones. In March 2001, VidSpace launched a premium subscription service, called VidSpace Plus. The service allowed users to upload much longer videos (such as making short films), playing videos with high quality, and trying new features earlier than other users.

In January 2002, VidSpace had major upgrades, video player was switched to 16:9 widescreen and the quality upgraded to 576i.

In 2003, VidSpace miagrated to Flash.

Modern era

In November 2004, VidSpace was redesigned to have a clean look, new features, improved playback quality, much longer videos, and more choices to make more social.

720p HD was introduced in February 2005, making it the first video-sharing website to have high-definition quality. 1080p Full HD was introduced in October 2006. 4K Ultra HD was introduced in January 2010. In September 2013, VidSpace transitioned to HTML5, allowing playback on iOS, Android, Portosic OS, and ViraOS devices.

VidSpace has recently begun to offer paid, free-to-view uploads of full episodes of TV series and movies, striking a deal with PBS in 2018 to allow PBS' VidSpace accounts to upload full episodes from PBS and PBS Kids shows, plus remastered versions of older shows and episodes. Similar to Tubi, they have advertisements (though an ad blocker can offer an uninterrupted experience).

Live analytics for the countries in the Kadersaryinan Islands by population Statistics & Analytics September 10, 2010 Kadersaryinan Islands' Stats It's the longest lasting and the oldest live stream on the website. The stream is still active and running for almost 10 years.

This live stream is also on YouTube and Twitch.

It's believed that this live stream is probably the most viewed thing ever on the website since 2018 and it's been on the algorithm since the Gaburayonese Revolution had started and that's when Gaburayon's population had started to go down and VidSpacers started time-lapsing of the decline of the population of Gaburayon and uploading them onto VidSpace.

People also did the same thing too when Kaga'ahjo was also losing its population when the Juul war started.

During the late point of the Gaburayonese Revolution, a constitutional referendum didn't passed, so Gaburayon was turned into a totalitarian state and the Gaburayonese secret police was established and that cause a faster decline in Gaburayon's population when the secret police are killing all opposition of the Gaburayonese government, so people viewed the live stream just because of that.

The highest amount of people that watched this live stream in a single day was about 425 million views on July 15, 2014, which is 17.7 million people that watched it per hour.

The lowest amount of people that watched this live stream in a single day was about 2.5 million views on March 26, 2019.
