YouTube Continues To Dominate Online Video Use [informationweek.com]
The number U.S. Internet users watching online video inched up in May, as Google-owned YouTube remained the hottest destinations, showing 14.6 billion videos in the month, a research firm says.
Overall, 183 million Web surfers watched nearly 34 billion videos, with YouTube accounting for 43.1%, ComScore reported Thursday. For the first time, YouTube surpassed the threshold of 100 videos per viewer.

Continues to bleed cash and be unprofitable as well.

While that may be true, bandwidth is becoming increasingly cheaper. Google will break even eventually. Small price to pay for them in the long run.

@J_rad, what do you base that on? I looked at Google's last quarterly and annual earnings filings and cannot find a breakdown for Youtube.

@setzer, Google gets its bandwidth cheap (it owns a fair amount of fibre), so it may already be profitable.

Youtube isn't the medium, it's the method, so who cares. No disrespect intended but if the videos move so would the people.
