35 Hours Of Video Uploaded To YouTube Every Minute

November 15, 2010

From the Official YouTube blog:

Remember in March when we shared with you that more than 24 hours of video being uploaded to YouTube every minute? Well, you continue to amaze us: you’ve increased the amount of video uploaded to YouTube to 35 hours per minute. That breaks out to 2,100 hours uploaded every 60 minutes, or 50,400 hours uploaded to YouTube every day. If we were to measure that in movie terms (assuming the average Hollywood film is around 120 minutes long), 35 hours a minute is the equivalent of over 176,000 full-length Hollywood releases every week. Another way to think about it is: if three of the major US networks were broadcasting 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year for the last 60 years, they still wouldn’t have broadcast as much content as is uploaded to YouTube every 30 days.

YouTube: Now Serving 1 Billion Views A Day

October 9, 2009

Chad Hurley CEO and Co-founder of YouTube announced today on the YouTube blog, his firm which has now been a part of Google for three years – has been serving well over 1,000,000,000 views a day.

To commemorate this outstanding achievement, YouTube has added “1 billion view per day!” to their logo.

According to Hurly, some of the basic principles YouTube was originally committed to have become tenets in the world of online video:

  • Speed matters: Videos should load and play back quickly.
  • Clip culture is here to stay: Short clips are voraciously consumed and perfect for watching a wide variety of content.
  • Open platforms open up possibility: Content creation isn’t our business; it’s yours. We wanted to create a place where anyone with a video camera, a computer, and an Internet connection could share their life, art, and voice with the world, and in many cases make a living from doing so.

Where else but on the web could a such a young business deliver 1,000,000,000 units of anything?
