Zoinks! 20 Hours of Video Uploaded Every Minute!

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 cinemas 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.

encouraging more video responses would be good!

20 Hours doesn't seem much really, I'd of thought it would be been ALOT more.

Just an idea to get to 24 hours of uploading time every minute....have the ability to upload longer that 10:59!

20 hours a minute!!
99% of it is complete trash though lol

Sharonxxx56 said...

I mean stop discourageing them!

Sharonxxx56 said...

It would probibly be more if you discouraged users that want fame by giving the popular people fancy channels

illage2 said...

It would be nice to see longer videos uploaded by normal users. I say about 20 minutes of video is better.

Also I think encouraging more video responses is a good idea.

I agree with the others, it'd be cool to have more uploading time, but I don't know if you can make that happen, because of server space or something.

And isn't the instant response thing cheating a bit? LOL, good idea though ;-)

As other people have said, having the ability to upload vids longer than 10 minutes long would be great (I'm fed up of having to split my series episodes into various parts!). I don't see a problem with it. After all, we can upload vids up to a gig in size, so why can't we upload longer vids? Have to say, instant video reponses sonuds good.

"We couldn't have built this site..."

Uh, you didn't.

20 hours a minute

but 19 of those are taken doen because of false copyright claims and assholes abusing the flagging system

For Christ's sake, think of the people who you "wouldn't have been able to build this site" without and GIVE US MORE VIDEO TIME THAN 10 FUCKING MINUTES.

supersmithnetwork said...

Also, I'm sick and FUCKING tried of this ''THIS VIDEO IS NOT AVAILBLE IN YOUR COUNTRY'' bullshit!! Make YouTube fucking global and put it back the way it is! You're just treating us like puppets.

Hmm, yeah 20 hours a minute. Shame all the good stuff will go unnoticed, as Top Rated slowly becomes less prominent, view counts are frozen, popularity of selected partners is enhanced and all manner of actions are taken to prevent good amateur content from being widely noticed. And of course, eventually the You in Youtube will be hidden behind masses of corporate drivel, which is in turn hidden behind masses of ads.

But hey, what are you gonna do. :3

20 hours a min is a lot of videos

After quite a time in which I was not satisfied with YouTube for video quality reasons and repeatedly broken uploads I can now say: Youtube works GREAT for me. Yesterday I uploaded my latest video and the upload was quite fast. Also the quality can compete now with all other sites I upload my videos to. Great job, Youtube. Sod those who need more than 10 mins. I never needed more ;-)

jayprivate said...

i tihnk i should buy another monitor...!!!

blackchaosshadow said...

If you care about your users enough youtube, you might listen to what we're screaming at you

Let us upload more than 10 mins at a time... even if you keep the 1 GB limet!

DON'T CHANGE THE CHANNEL DESIGN
IF IT AIN'T BROKE DON'T FIX IT!

IF YOU DON'T THAN THOSE HOURS WILL GO DOWN VERY RAPIDLY!
