Genres of Youtube?

Everyone knows what a Genre is, right?

A style or category of art, music, or literature:
So theres genres of books, magazines, films and everything else, but are there genres on Youtube? I think there is. After reviewing this document, we can all see that there actually is, genres of videos within Youtube. But there shouldnt be anything shoicking about this, because if 72 hours of video are uploaded every minute, and over 4 billion videos are viewed every day, of course some videos are going to clump together into their own little genres.
Some Youtube genres are:
-Parodies     -Life hacks     -Animation
-Timelapse     -Pop-culture re animated     -Mashups       ….and many many more (see document)
As pretty much every type of Youtube genre is listed here, I struggled to actually add to the list with genres and example that I could think of, as its all there! But i do think that these genres exist, and should be just as important as movie genres, book genres and everything else. Youtube is massive, its growing and it’s not going to stop anytime soon.
