YouTube Now Serving One Billion Video Views Daily
Posted on October 10, 2009
YouTube announced this week that they are now serving one billion video views each day. They mention basic principles they implemented that have since become fundamental 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.
