YouTube also revealed that in the last six months, video uploads from mobile phones increased by 1,700 percent. The website said it thought new handsets and improvements to the site were responsible for the huge jump in uploads.
"This growth represents three things coming together: new video-enabled phones on the market, improvements to the upload flow when you post a video to YouTube from your phone, and a new feature on YouTube that allows your videos to be quickly and effortlessly shared through your social networks," product manager Dwipal Desai and community manager Mia Quagliarello said in a blog.
YouTube has created a dedicated webpage that offer advice on uploading and watching clips from the site on mobile phones.
