YouTube leads US online video market share reports MarketingCharts with a 28% of the video market share. That’s not surprise to most of you I’m sure that know how powerful YouTube really is. The latest stat I found when researching how many videos are uploaded daily on to YouTube is 65,000 videos per day, and that was in mid 2006. We are now at the end of 2007 and video is becoming more accessible to average users to view (universal increase of broadband connection) and uploading videos (understanding of how site works and more accessible technology-user friendly)
