Although the personal history of Vinny is shrouded in mystery, it is known that the original Vinesauce YouTube channel was created on February 20th, 2010. Initially, Vinny used the channel to serve a small variety of short video game playthroughs, amateur comedy, and music videos. The earliest of these videos was a clip of a Muddy Cup (then known as "The Cup") concert performing a cover of Davy Grey's "Now You're A Man."
While Vinny had not yet begun the streams that made him well-known, he had said to have been an avid video game live stream follower. Around the time that Twitch had been founded, Vinny took further interest in the content provided by streamers. Becoming disillusioned in what he saw as a gradual "decline" in the quality of Twitch streams, Vinny finally decided to embark in the world of streaming, and on May 11th, 2010. Vinny launched the Vinesauce website and streamed his first Twitch stream, Chrono Trigger.
About a year in, he started to recruit streamers who would be interested in becoming full-time Vinesauce streamers, as well with allowing a variety of guest to host their stream. It was from 2011 to 2013 that he would be joined by several additional streamers, including KY, Joel, Fred, MentalJen, Limes, Darren, Studyguy, Rev, Hootey, Imakuni and FearGingers.
On April 13th, 2013, a page for Vinesauce” was created on TV Tropes. Four days later, the Vinesauce Tumblr blog was launched. On January 25th, 2014, a Vinesauce Facebook page was created, gained over 2,100 likes in the first four months.
Many of Vinny's best-known streams involve the corruption of various video games. During a corruption stream, Vinny uses a "corruptor" (a special program used to change and/or replace various bytes in a selected game) causing a wide variety of amusing glitches.
Mayro is a troll ripoff series of the Mario games, featuring misspelled names and bizarre, low-quality graphics. The Mayro stream is often cited as one of the videos that caused Vinesauce to take off.
