Google Still Owns Online Video, But Hulu Is Rising

Google remains the dominant player in the online video space, but Hulu is on the rise. It’s now the number three video property according to the latest comScore numbers out today.

According to comScore, Hulu has passed Yahoo properties and moved into the third spot with 2.6% of all videos viewed during March. Yahoo dropped to fourth with 2.3 million videos watched on its sites. Google properties (primarily YouTube) are still miles ahead of the competition with almost 41% of all videos viewed during the month.

    I love the HD videos appearing via Google but I like the layout, video quality, and selection on Hulu. Not being a TV watcher it’s where I go to get a TV like fix.
