YouTube turns seven; gets 72 hours of video upload per minute

YouTube has turned seven– and has hit yet another video upload milestone – YouTube is now uploading three days of videos (72 hours) per minute – which is about 37,840,000 hours of video per year!

"We're so honored that you've used YouTube to share how-to tips, political moments, home videos, comedy, music, and so much more," the YouTube team wrote in a blog post on Sunday.

YouTube has come a long way in the last seven years. The interface has been revamped, making it easier to browse and share videos of interest. Backed by a massive 800 million users, YouTube has incorporated numerous interesting features such as channels, video playlist and the latest, option to convert all short form videos uploaded in 1080p in 3D.

Notably, the site earlier this year announced that it had surpassed 4 billion video views every day and over 60 hours of video upload every minute.

“This last year was especially big for us. We helped bring more great channels to YouTube and we redesigned the site, making it easier for you to discover, watch and subscribe to the videos you love. And all 800 million of you all over the world have shown us we’re on the right track by increasing subscriptions 50% and watching over 3 billion hours a month,” it further said.

The video sharing site now also offers localised services. It has dedicated channel for the Indian movies and television soaps. Check out the seven year-long history of YouTube in the video below:
