It’s been impossible not to notice the increase in the number of internet video viewers and the increased length of time they spend watching. Still, a look at the actual numbers, and the impact on advertising, is profound.

- In the last year, unique viewers of online video grew 10%, the number of streams grew 41%, the streams per user grew 27% and the total minutes engaged with online video grew 71%
