Neat little video on how youtube generates video ids and why


Neat little video on the video url ids that youtube uses, with side discussions on base64 and why not to use incremental numbering for online url ids:


Interesting video. Thanks. :Thmbsup:

I never realized it was essentially base-64 with the "/" changed to a "_"

Funny how speaking while walking seemed to be no problem, but saying that really huge number seemed to be rather exhausting :)
