YouTube Users Uploading 35 Hours of Per Minute

YouTube said users are uploading 35 hours of per minute, up from 24 hours per minute from March. YouTube Mobile is a big part of incrse, the company said.YouTube, whose massive network of servers was sucking in 24 hours of per minute last March, likes to frame its user stats in analogies. The comparison it uses to characterize the 35-hour-per-minute mark is impressive:"If three of the major U.S. networks were broadcasting 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a yr for the last 60 yrs, they still wouldn't have broadcast as much content as is uploaded to YouTube every 30 days," said Hunter Walk, YouTube's director of product management.
What's fueling the incrse in hours? This chart notes that users have doubled the of uploads to YouTube in the last two yrs.
That's not all that's contributing to the time climb. YouTube also incrsed the time cap on s uploaded from 10 to 15 minutes, and boosted the upload file size over the last few yrs to 2GB.
And that's all from the desktop. Newfangled smart such as the Droid X and Evo 4G sport large, 4.3-inch screens that are optimized for playback.
YouTube said 75 percent of 16,000 YouTube Mobile users ed report that mobile is their primary way of accessing YouTube content.

Some 70 percent of those users visit YouTube Mobile at lst once a day, while 58 percent spend more than 20 minutes per visit at YouTube Mobile.
Walk also challenged users to upload 48 hours of every minute. Given the 11-hour upload bump road from March, it's not improbable that YouTube won't see 48 hours of uploads a minute in 2011.
YouTube's parent, Google, is the master at helping users find content, and it looks like those qualities are trickling down to YouTube.
The unit is experimenting with YouTube Topics on Srch, which picks topics on YouTube and associates s with them, using popular uploader words, common srch queries, playlist names and Wikipedia articles.
In the company's example, when a user srches for "Obama," YouTube will suggest other related topics tied to s, such as "michelle obama" or "john mccain."
Users who click to get to s on these topics will find s that contain both topics by clicking on the (+) next to the topic.
