    Numinnex, your click on 'Thanks' obviated the need for a new post.

    Additionally, Please note that a better title would have been Youtube has blocked my video.

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'

    Note the correct capitalisation of "YouTube" (a brand name).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Why does the word "youtube" not need the word "the" ?

    I think this is because 'YouTube' is a name, but I am not a teacher.

    Re: Help me in a sentence please.

    It is a proper noun, the actual name of the website. It's the same for all websites.

    I saw it on Google.
    I watched a video on YouTube.
    I help learners on UsingEnglish.
    I can't get into Hotmail.

    You have a 'the' before names like the USA and the UK though.
    I am not a teacher.

    That is because the official names of these countries are descriptions of what they are.

    the America, the United States of America
    the Great Britain, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
    the China, the People's Republic of China
    the Germany, the Federal Republic of Germany
