YouTube Uploads 35 Hours Of Video Every Minute

YouTube users are now uploading 35 hours worth of video every minute on the platform, the Google owned company has said.

The figures give an idea of the extent that the video sharing website has grown over the past few months, as only last March YouTube reported that users were uploading 24 hours of video every minute.

According to YouTube, if a typical Hollywood movie is 120 minutes long then the 35 hours of video uploaded every minute is equivocal to 176,000 full-length Hollywood releases every week.

YouTube also said that if three of the biggest US broadcasters were airing videos 24 hours a day, seven days a week and 365 days a year for the last 60 years, they still wouldn't have been able to match the number of videos uploaded on YouTube in 30 days.

“Well, you continue to amaze us: you’ve increased the amount of video uploaded to YouTube to 35 hours per minute. That breaks out to 2,100 hours uploaded every 60 minutes, or 50,400 hours uploaded to YouTube every day,” the company said.
