Ryan Junee, product manager for YouTube, the team reported recently on the official YouTube blog that apparently, YouTube has begun receiving 20 hours of raw video per minute! That almost a whole day of videos! The site, which is one of the Top 5 of the popular websites in the world, seems to have become much better, since it was purchased by Google.
Here is what Ryan had to say on the YouTube blog:
In mid-2007, six hours of video were uploaded to YouTube every minute. Then it grew to eight hours per minute, then 10, then 13. In January of this year, it became 15 hours of video uploaded every minute, the equivalent of Hollywood releasing over 86,000 new full-length movies into theaters each week.
Now, 20 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute, and it is a testament to the fact that you’ve made YouTube your online video home. We couldn’t have built this site without your commitment to sharing your thoughts, experiences, and creativity with each other. We have news clips and full-length shows and movies, music videos and how-to content, sports highlights and animation, short films, homegrown videos, and, yes, all the dogs on skateboards you can watch. There’s an audience for every type of content on YouTube, and we hope that with all this video, you can find whatever it is you’re interested in on the site.
We’re still developing new ways to upload videos to YouTube. Today we’re launching a feature that allows users to conveniently record a video response immediately after watching a video, making the YouTube experience even more social. When the video you’re watching ends, an icon encouraging you to respond will appear in the player. Clicking on the icon will activate your webcam and immediately bring you into the conversation.
So thanks, and let’s see if we can get to 24 hours — a full day’s worth of video uploaded every minute.
According to reports from Google had bought the video giant for $ 1.65 billion U.S. Dollar, this is too crazy to be true. Google claims that the Web site, even after so popular with the public still has not made profit yet. The implementation of Google advertising from Google AdSense and AdWords, the revenue a little shot, only to eventually fall again. Now, Google is planning to implement the “Ad-clips” which are essentially of 20 seconds or a little more valuable video ads that play before each YouTube video. Annoying? Yes, sure it is! Can wait and see what these guys are up to ..
