YouTube - "20 Hours of Video Uploaded Every Minute!!"

As incredible as it seems the title of this post is correct, according to YouTube's blog today, there is now 20 Hours of video content uploaded to YouTube every single minute. The equivalent of Hollywood releasing over 86,000 new full-length movies into cinemas each week. This has increased from just 6 hours in 2007, and 15 hours in January of this year. You can view the whole article here 'Zoinks! 20 Hours of Video Uploaded Every Minute!'.

Despite wondering what the hell could possibly be uploaded that warrants 20 hours every minute (above for example), it is still a very impressive figure. It also begs the question that with their continued work on developing ease of upload and video response what will this figure be by the end of the year.
