Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on January 4, 2013

We are in the 21st century and this is the epoch of Science and Technology. Now it it proved that to be popular our product not necessarily be understood by all. These videos proved it.

Watched by more than 1118 million times:

Yahoo:

Gangnam Style,” the unlikely smash hit by South Korean rapper Psy, has surpassed Justin Bieber’s “Baby” to become the most-watched YouTube video of all time.

The video–featuring Psy’s meme-ready dance moves–has racked up more than 815 million views since it was uploaded to YouTube on July 15. Bieber’s “Baby,” which has been watched more than than 803 million times since it was posted in February 2010.

“#GangnamStyle just became the most watched video @YouTube!” Psy (real name: Park Jae-Sang)tweeted on Saturday. “#History.”

“Gangnam Style” already holds the title for “most liked” video in YouTube history with more than 2 million “likes,” according to the Guinness Book of World Records, which officially recognized the achievement in September. The video for LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem” is a distant second with more than 1.6 million “likes.” Bieber’s “Baby” is no. 3 in that category.

But true Beliebers, fear not: The 18-year-old pop star is not taking the “most viewed” loss lying down,tweeting a shirtless picture from the gym for his 30 million Twitter followers.

Not so smart but watched about 12 million times

Petraeus mistress reveals real motive behind Benghazi attack (VIDEO)

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on November 13, 2012

The fallout from former CIA head David Petraeus’ resignation might be more significant than first thought: as all eyes turn to the ex-intelligence chief’s mistress, it’s apparent that she may have been privy to what really happened in Benghazi.

Two months after the storming of an US consulate in Benghazi, questions remain largely unanswered about both how and why insurgents entered the facility on September 11 and executed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. The discussion became a heated issue on the campaign trail leading up to Election Day, and conflicting accounts from the White House, State Department and Congress all led to a mess of confusion that has only further spun out of control following the unexpected stepping down of Petraeus on Friday.

In the immediate aftermath of the CIA chief’s resignation, skeptics quickly suggested that there was more to the story, especially given Petraeus’ role as head of the country’s intelligence agency and the relatively unscathing extramarital affair that he rightfully admitted to in citing his departure from office. As journalists and investigators tried to dig deep for info on the alleged mistress, Petraeus biographer Paula Broadwell, as expected the story took a drastic turn by Sunday when it was revealed that she may have been briefed on the truth of the Benghazi scandal while the rest of the country claws for answers.

‘Stalin was like Facebook’: Viral ad sparks controversy

“Stalin was like Facebook: he always wanted you to share information.” That is just one of the controversial posters aimed at showing the Internet generation the horrors of Stalin’s regime. Others compare him to Twitter and YouTube.

The posters, which were created for the Victims of Illegal Political Repressions Organization, use contemporary social platforms to illustrate to younger generations how much they have, and translate the awful reality of Soviet political repressions into a language they understand and can relate to.

The posters draw parallels between popular social networks and typical repressions of Stalinist times, and all provide historical details on this very dark period in Soviet history.

The Facebook poster describes how thousands of people regularly snitched on their neighbors, friends and relatives, filing reports with the NKVD or Secret Police. In the two years of the worst oppressions, from 1937 to 1938, the NKVD was flooded with so many reports, they physically couldn’t handle them.

A similar poster comparing the Soviet dictator to YouTube plays on the Russian words for “upload” and “send”, saying that Stalin let people get picked up and sent off. During the period of the Great Purge, known as Yezhovshchina in Russia (after the head of the Secret Police, Nikolay Yezhov), millions were sent off to labor camps and left to rot in Siberia. Their families were evaluated, and if deemed ‘capable of anti-Soviet actions’, they too were packed off to the camps, travelling for months in freight trains, like cattle.

The project started as a graduation work for communications studies student Ilya Tekhlikidi, who chose the Victims of Illegal Political Repressions Organization because of his own family history. His great-grandfather was executed by firing squad in 1937, and his great-grandmother and her children survived three labor camps. Read the rest of this entry »

YouTube Video Views Hit 4 Billion Per Day

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on January 27, 2012

By Alexei Oreskovic

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – YouTube, Google Inc’s video website, is streaming 4 billion online videos every day, a 25 percent increase in the past eight months, according to the company.

The jump in video views comes as Google pushes YouTube beyond the personal computer, with versions of the site that work on smartphones and televisions, and as the company steps up efforts to offer more professional-grade content on the site.

According to the company, roughly 60 hours of video is now uploaded to YouTube every minute, compared with the 48 hours of video uploaded per minute in May.

YouTube, which Google acquired for $1.65 billion in 2006, represents one of Google’s key opportunities to generate new sources of revenue outside its traditional Internet search advertising business.

Last week, Google said that its business running graphical “display” ads – many of which are integrated alongside YouTube videos – was generating $5 billion in revenue on an annualized run rate basis. Read the rest of this entry »

Anonymous ‘threatens’ to take down Facebook in Operation Global Blackout (VIDEO)

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on January 23, 2012

Following a massive attack waged Thursday on several government and entertainment industry websites, hacktivists with Anonymous continued their assault over the weekend, momentarily taking CBS.com offline.

The next target very well might be Facebook.

The shut-down of the file sharing site Megaupload last week prompted thousands of users to participate in an Anonymous-led attack on opponents of the service, which left the websites for the FBI, Department of Justice, Motion Picture Association of America and Universal Music Group, among others, momentarily crippled.

The move, believed to be the largest Anonymous-led online initiative in the group’s history, was continued during the weekend when operatives participating managed to divert all traffic away from CBS.com. For around 20 minutes, the television network’s main site was unavailable on the Web to surfers across the world. Additionally, a second assault on Universal Music Group, or UMG, was waged and once again rendered the site unavailable. Universal is the largest record label in America and already revealed itself as an opponent to Megaupload before last week’s raid.

Sunday’s take-down of CBS.com and UMG was also accompanied by similar initiatives on foreign websites linked to anti-copyright legislation, including Polish and French government sites. According to some alleged Anonymous members, however, the bombardment doesn’t stop just there. In a new video uploaded to YouTube on Monday, a person claiming to work under the guise of Anonymous announces plans to take on the social networking giant Facebook in the coming days.

EXCLUSIVE: YouTube Finally Goes Hollywood With New Movies on Demand Service (Updated)

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on April 26, 2011

By Sharon Waxman

YouTube will imminently launch a movie-on-demand service charging users to stream mainstream Hollywood movies off the world’s largest video sharing site, TheWrap has learned.

The new service means a full-bore challenge to Apple’s iTunes service – currently the most powerful player in paid video streaming — and a welcome new revenue stream for Hollywood as home entertainment revenues continue their steep decline.

The service may start as early as this week or next, and is expected to be announced soon by YouTube.

Major studios including Sony Pictures Entertainment, Warner Brothers and Universal have licensed their movies for the new service, as have numerous independent studios, including Lionsgate and the library-rich Kino Lorber, according to movie executives with knowledge of the deals in place.

YouTube has been laboring to bring all the major Hollywood studios on board before announcing it, according to one executive involved in the deal. But so far Paramount, Fox and Disney have declined to join.

(Update 7:37 p.m. PST) YouTube, which had earlier declined to comment for the story, issued a statement after this story was published, pointing out that it has rented movies for a year, while declining to comment on the broader initiative it is about to launch with the major studios on board.  Read the rest of this entry »

Yuri Gagarin, First Man In Space, Featured In YouTube Movie ‘First Orbit’

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on April 12, 2011

YouTube is celebrating 50 years of human spaceflight with the premiere of an hour-and-a-half long video, First Orbit, that recreates, in real-time, Russian astronaut Yuri Gagarin’s first 108-minute long orbit of Earth in 1961.

First Orbit’s creators worked with the International Space Station to obtain footage that presents “a new view of what Yuri would have seen as he travelled around the planet.”

“Weaving these new views together with historic voice recordings from Yuri’s flight and an original score by composer Philip Sheppard, we have created a spellbinding film to share with people around the World on this historic anniversary,” The Attic Room explains on its website.

The video begins with Gagarin’s launch and the astronaut’s reflections as he is about to take off–“All I have done and lived for has been lived for for this moment”–then takes viewers on a breathtaking tour through orbit. Read the rest of this entry »
