Thought this might be of interest to commons-l as well...

I hacked up a very quick count of the 2015 video viewing aggregate
figures, using the data that Bartosz put together last year - with the
caveat that the data only goes up to 10 December, but it's probably
indicative of whole-year trends. I haven't yet tried to merge in the
11-31/12 data. Nothing very insightful but I don't recall seeing it
done before, so it might be of interest!
The headline figure is that we had about three billion (!!)
video/audio plays during the year, and that some of the most popular
items are insanely popular - the most popular was viewed an average of
42,000 times a day, every day.
