Video streaming services successful for YouTube as site attracts 72m hits for royal wedding

Video streaming services successful for YouTube as site attracts 72m hits for royal wedding

YouTube's video streaming services were successful last month as 72 million people in 188 different countries watched coverage of the royal wedding on its dynamic website.

Figures published by the website revealed that though the number was not as high as was previously expected, it is still more than the UK's population.

Furthermore, the number of people watching a re-run of the event over the internet was high, with 101 million people doing so through YouTube.

BBC's iPlayer service also saw 34 million people watching at least part of the ceremony through its platform, reports

The event was one of the first to be broadcast on YouTube's live streaming channel.

Four hours of live coverage was shown on the website, taking a feed from the BBC's coverage but removing the commentary and replacing it with live blogs and text updates.

The platform has also been showing live coverage of cricket's Indian Premier League.
