YouTube serving 100 million videos a day

Video sharing site YouTube, which was acquired by Google earlier this week, is now serving a staggering 100 million videos a day.

Statistics released by web monitoring firm comScore show that YouTube served an average of 100 million video streams a day during July.

The site was visited by 63 million people aged 15 and over during the month, with an average of 6.2 million users a day. YouTube was the 17th most visited site worldwide for the month.

YouTube served nearly three billion video streams worldwide in July, representing slightly less than a quarter of the total activity streamed to US locations.

On an average daily basis for the month, 96 million streams were served worldwide and 21 million in the US.

« Several media outlets have reported that YouTube streamed 100 million videos daily in July, and the results of our recent study corroborate this report, » said Gian Fulgoni, chairman of comScore Networks.

« In fact, our daily streaming data shows that YouTube first surpassed the 100 million threshold on 17 July, which coincides with YouTube’s own announcement that it had reached this impressive mark.

« Our streaming data covering more recent months will be published shortly, and will show that YouTube’s streaming total now far surpasses 100 million per day. »

Google agreed to acquire YouTube for $1.65bn in stock earlier this week. YouTube will continue to operate independently, and will keep its own headquarters and employees.

    It would be interesting to be able to believe these types of numbers and I know most business people would find it entertaining for someone to show how exactly these numbers can be validated… I have 100 Million different reasons for asking and is backed up with $1.64 Billion in Enron Stock.

    I just do not believe these numbers and think people are falling for this if they do believe them. I am sure there is a slight possibility of a site getting that many hits a day….that can be generated with software programs, but having 100 millions members…well I just can’t see why anyone would want to be a member of a site that has that many members anyway… you can only communicate effectively with one or two at a time…

    Everyone needs to listen to my podcast on statistics. Stats can be manipulated easily enough. It is a proven fact almost that myspace doesn’t have 100 million active users.

    YouTube probably has allot of streams, but 100 million is a big number to be believable. I would like to see YouTube’s server and bandwidth reports. 100 million videos at an average of let’s say 3 minutes per stream, would require a ton of bandwidth. Now Google just put their money up, so I’m sure bandwidth is going to be now issue.

    But just like the 100 million member’s of myspace, I would like to see this broken down to exact stats to prove the number is feasible.
