5 rooms 4 Youtube
The Youtube site has been split into 5 rooms. One for the home page (www.)youtube.com and 4 for the videos. Relevant is the first letter of the video ID (after the "v="). People meet if they watch the same video. But the video watching crowd is distributed over 4 rooms for video ID starting with a-h, i-q, r-z, and the rest. Also, if the host name starts with anything except "www.", then this is interpreted as a country domain and taken into account. So, de.youtube.com is different from www.youtube.com. Please see the youtube.xml.
