Internet Porn wins over Film in Video-Streaming Wars

Internet Porn wins over Film in Video-Streaming Wars According to a 2011 study by envisional Ltd of Cambridge, UK, pornography continues to be the top trafficker of data volumes on the Internet — but only slightly greater than most movie and film downloads.  Of course, it is possible that plenty of the streaming video that comprises the growing film category may contain various sexual images.

Of all file traffic surveyed 35.8 percent was pornography, movies made up 35.2 percent, and coming in third is television programming at 14.5 percent.

While FYOUTH was not surprised by the continued popularity of Internet porn, we were shocked to hear that MUSIC had fallen to sixth place to account for only 2.9% of all Internet file traffic!  We are music buffs and we always thought that there are way way more songs being downloaded than porn vids.  Fortunately, our basic math skills confirm that there are still more music files being downloaded in comparison to movies and pornographic videos combined, but because music files are much smaller in size compared to films and streaming videos the music files comprise much less of the traffic per file downloaded. The average music file is around 2MB in size for a single track while the average movie or porn video ranges from 500MB to 1.5GB in size—the traffic equivalent of 600+ music files in a single file download.
