YouTube video uploads hit 3 days/minute

Back in late March, I linked to YouTube's announcement that they were receiving an hour of video every second -- 60 hours' worth of video per minute. Just 10 weeks later, they've made a new announcement: they're receiving 72 hours' worth of video a minute.

It's YouTube's 7th birthday... and you’ve outdone yourselves, again (Thanks, Matt!)

  1. So I think I have my calculations correct on this…

    3 days per minute is equal to 180 days per hour…

    180 days per hour is equal to 4320 days per day…

    Which is equal to 4320 years per year.

    *brain explodes*

  2. So that’s… like…  a month’s worth of badly lit emo girls babbling semi-coherently, and guys getting hit in the balls, every 10 minutes…

  3. But still I cant click on a you tube video without it stopping and buffering at the worst time regardless of time of day, bandwidth , computer, location, etc…

  4. I’ll bet a large portion of that is 10 hour loops or otherwise insignificant video – there are quite a few of those up.
