Video-sharing website YouTube will be accessible by mobile phones in many parts of the world by next year, the website’s co-founder and chief technology officer Steve Chen said on Saturday.

Speaking at a forum on the internet in his home country of Taiwan, Chen said that websites should provide richer content and greater mobility, enabling users to access such sites from anywhere in the world. He said commuters on subways or buses are likely to access videos of between 30 to 60 seconds each, while people travelling on longer train journeys would probably go for files of up to 10 minutes in length.

Chen was born in Taiwan in 1978 and emigrated to the US with his family eight years later. He set up the video-sharing website in San Mateo, California, with colleague Chad Hurley in 2005, after they found their video files too large to e-mail. Within a year of its launch, they sold YouTube to Google for US$1.65 billion.
