YouTube’s top ten for 2012

By

Everything from a laptop shooting to a mysterious sign. This year you'd need at least eight million hits to make the list.

According to YouTube's recently released list of the top hits of 2012, "This year, Korean Pop music transcended boundaries and took the world by storm. Cover songs, parodies, and "do-it-yourself" music videos from all genres entertained us in countries near and far."

The blog post continues, "2012 has been a big year for YouTube. You've been watching over 4 billion hours of video a month." Statistic also show that we are uploading 72 hours of video every minute.

Of interest also is the fact that only one of the top ten was an amateur production; all the rest came from a professional coterie of performers, producers etc.

 

 

The top ten are:

1. PSY - GANGNAM STYLE
2. Somebody That I Used to Know - Walk off the Earth (Gotye - Cover) 
3. KONY 2012 
4. "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen - Feat. Justin Bieber, Selena, Ashley Tisdale & MORE! 
5. Barack Obama vs Mitt Romney. Epic Rap Battles Of History Season 2. 
6. A DRAMATIC SURPRISE ON A QUIET SQUARE 
7. WHY YOU ASKING ALL THEM QUESTIONS? .. #FCHW 
8. Dubstep Violin- Lindsey Stirling- Crystallize 
9. Facebook Parenting: For the troubled teen. 
10. Felix Baumgartner's supersonic freefall from 128k' - Mission Highlights

Here in Australia, we shared the same top three (although places 2 and 3 were reversed), but the remaining seven hits were all local material.

Here's the list:

1. PSY - GANGNAM STYLE
2. KONY 2012 
3. Somebody That I Used to Know - Walk off the Earth (Gotye - Cover) 
4. Bella Ferraro - Auditions - The X Factor 2012
5. Gangnam Style parody "Aussie Battler Style"
6. Call me Maybe parody - Aussie blokes version
7. Surprise! Britney Learns 'Gangnam Style' from Psy
8. "Fallen Kingdom" A Minecraft Parody of Coldplay's Viva la Vida (Music Video)
9. Awkward Train Situations #2
10. Loosest Aussie Bloke Ever

Even the tenth ranked Aussie hit has gathered nearly 2 million hits (although we can't tell how many of those were Australian-based hits).

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
