    Thanks for this info!! we have been racking our brains trying to figure out why we are seeing youtu.be. My friend Jeff found your post here, so at least we can be assured that it is not an exploit : )

    it would seem there is another difference between youtu.be and youtube, if you post a url with youtu.be into facebook, some times it open the video on youtube.com, but other times it allows viewers to view the video right in facebook with out being redirected to youtube’s website. Any ideas? your input would be greatly appreciated.

    thankyou

      I believe that when you “share” a video (use the tab that says share) FB automatically detects the [youtu].be web address and its servers say “Oh! I see that i can edit my html* a bit so i can load the external content** right in the browser. Advanced:
      HTML is a “programming” language for websites.
      **external content is loaded as an interactive-frame

    > Youtu.be takes the .be domain. This is not one of the top level domains

    “.be” IS a TLD; the TLD for Belgium.

    A TLD is the last part of an url before the first slash. They are part of the DNS system: they are subdomains of the root domain which has 13 DNS servers (10 in the US and 3 across the globe)

    There seem to be a typo.. shouldn’t it say “There is actually no rule that says people from other countries CAN’T use country specific domains.” ?

      Not really, it is not explained WHY there is a trend of youtu.be or goo.gl or t.co… WHY Belgium? That is unanswered.

    Youtu.be allows you to search YouTube in the URL bar if you press space. Youtube.com doesn’t let you do that.
