10 Most Viewed YouTube Videos Of All-Time - Ranked

You'll all be glad to hear that Justin Bieber isn't #1.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_OBlgSz8sSM YouTube seems like it has been around forever, however it actually only celebrated its 10-year anniversary earlier this year. The first ever video, €œMe at the zoo€, which as the title suggests shows YouTube co-founder Jawed Karim on at day out at the San Diego Zoo, was uploaded to the site on April 23, 2005. Since then YouTube has become the world€™s largest, most popular online video hosting website, with a phenomenal 300 hours of footage being uploaded every minute and billions of views being generated every day. It may or may not come as a surprise to learn that the most popular genre on YouTube is music videos, which account for approximately 40% of all views. Indeed the top 10 most viewed YouTube videos of all-time are all music videos, with the most viewed non-music content only coming in at 16th overall €“ €œCharlie bit my finger €“ again !€ uploaded by HDCYT (see above video) At the time of writing this article, the top 10 most viewed videos have received an astronomical combined total of 11,517,422,907 views, with the top entry alone accounting for over 20% of these views alone. Before continuing to the next page why not for a bit of fun see how many you can guess before we begin our list (I€™m almost embarrassed to admit it, but I could only get 3!). *Note that all figures regarding number of views/likes/dislikes were accurate on 9 Aug, 2015 and will obviously be subject to change over time.
