10 Billion Video Views Online in December 2007 by 141 million Americans

A recently released comScore Video Metrix service report, revealed that U.S. Internet users watched more than 10 billion videos online during the month of December, 2007, representing the single heaviest month for online video consumption since comScore initiated its tracking service. Google Sites saw substantial growth and extended its video market share gains, now accounting for nearly one out of every three videos viewed online.

Erin Hunter, comScore executive vice president of media and entertainment "With the writer's strike keeping new TV episodes from reaching the airwaves... It appears that online video is stepping in to help fill that (alternatives for fresh content) void."

Google Sites once again ranked as the top U.S. video property in December with 32.6 percent share of videos. YouTube.com accounted for more than 97 percent of all videos viewed at the property. Fox Interactive Media ranked second, followed by Yahoo! Sites and Viacom Digital.
