    Tube means the imaginary channel through which information flows to you. 'You' should denote the site is for your benefit.
    I might be wrong.

    I'm sure someone (maybe the same person) asked this about a week ago, and there were several replies.

    However, as far as I'm concerned it basically means "television that you make yourself". That's because all the clips, movies etc on there have been either created or uploaded by users of the website.
