The content ranges from user generate content, indie creators and premium content partners. Dailymotion is available all around the world, in many different languages and localized versions with home pages for that particular location. The Dailymotion idea was envisioned in March 2005 by Benjamin Bejbaum and Olivier Poitrey in Poitry’s living room in Paris. A group of Benjamin Bejbaum and Olivier Poitrey friends pulled together $9,271 to start the business. In 2006, Dailymotion raised funds with the backing of Atlas Ventures and ParTech International. The group successfully raised $7 million Euros in 2006 to kickstart the Dailymotion business model. The French government also invested through the Strategic Investment Fund. In January 2013 Orange S.A. (formally known as France Telecom S.A. a French multinational telecommunication corporation) bought the remaining 51% to take full control of Dailymotion. The Dailymotion also boost some impressive stats such as 2.2 Billion video views per month, 105 Million unique visitors per month and 85% of our audience is outside of France.

Based on the numbers, Vimeo attract over 100 million unique visitors each month and has over 22 million registered users. A huge portion (15%) of Vimeo traffic comes from mobile devices.

1.YouTube-You guessed it! YouTube took our number one spot among the top video sharing site on the web. YouTube was founded by Chad Hurley, Jawed Karim, and Steve Chen, who were all early employees of PayPal. The actual origin of YouTube has been debated among the founders. Chad and Chen version of the story is that they developed the idea for YouTube during the early months of 2005, after having an issue with trying to share a video at a dinner party at Chen’s apartment in San Francisco. However, Karim version of the creation of YouTube is somewhat different from the two other co-founders. Karim version of the birth of YouTube is based on the inspiration after the events that happen to Janet Jackson during the 2004 Super Bowl apparel malfunction. Karim surf the net to find a video of Janet’s exposed breast online. Nevertheless, there is no malfunction on the numbers and videos that are uploaded to YouTube daily. Here are a few YouTube statistics: YouTube has over a billion users, every day people watch hundreds of millions of hours on YouTube and generate billions of views, the number of hours people are watching on YouTube each month is up 50% year over year, 300 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute and mobile revenue on YouTube is up over 100%. In late 2005, YouTube the small startup received $11.5 million funding from Sequoia Capital. In October 2009, Google acquired YouTube for $1.65 billion in Google stock. Not a bad pay day for the founders who were seeking easier way to upload videos to the Internet!
