How Many Videos Do You Watch Online Everyday?

If you think you're the only person addicted to watching videos and clips online you're wrong. According to a new study by the Pew Internet and American Life Project, one in five online Americans watch video over the Internet on any given day. This is due in part to speedier Internet connections and a wider selection of clips, says the study.

The New York Times reports that young adults watch in greater numbers and often turn to humorous clips, while all other age groups use video predominantly for news. On a typical day, 19 percent of U.S. Internet adults watch some form of video.

I find I can't avoid online video because of my addiction to sites like Youtube and GiggleSugar, but plenty of my friends tell me they hardly ever watch videos online.

wow, that's surprising how many people watch. I barely have enough time in my day to read the yahoo news headlines. I've watched maybe 2 videos in the past 3 months.

I watch a bajillion! Interesting thing is - because i've seen everything on the web I can now pull out the laptop and pull up any video on anyone or anything. Bad thing is - I've seen everything on the internet...

It depends on my mood and what's going on, but anywhere from 0 to a bajillion. :) The average is probably about 3-5 daily - I watch a lot of fan vids, movie/tv clips, dance perofrmances, and sports videos (dressage, ice skating, etc.)

I would watch more if they loaded faster on my computer.

Every once in awhile I'll watch some, but I usually don't. By the time I get home and have time to watch them I'm too tired. As a graphic designer, I'm at the computer all day, so when I get home I usually take a break from the computer.

The average day is 1-3 but some days it's much more than that. Mainly because of YouTube!

I try to avoid watching them sometimes so I usually only end up watching a few per day.

I would watch more, but streaming media is blocked at work. (It's probably a good idea.)
