Google Video Shows the Number of Views


Google Video has finally opened up: for each video, you can see the total number of views and the number of views from the day before.

One of the most popular video from Google Video ("Hips don't lie spoof") has 8,762,847 total views and 133,890 are from yesterday. The most popular video from YouTube ("Evolution of dance") has 32,426,948 total views, while on Google Video it only has 1,290,703 views. The problem with these stats is that there are lots of duplicate videos, and neither Google nor YouTube do something about that.
