YouTube saw record levels of traffic last month, according to the latest figures from research firm ComScore.
The Google-owned site served roughly 14.6 billion videos in the US alone during May, representing more than 100 video views for every person in the country.
ComScore estimated that users in the US viewed nearly 34 billion online videos in May, and that YouTube and other Google sites accounted for almost 43 per cent of the total.
The research firm also reported that 183 million unique viewers watched online video in May, each averaging 186 views. Google sites claimed 144 million unique viewers at an average of 101 views per person.
A distant second on the rankings was Hulu. The commercial video site logged roughly 1.2 billion video views to claim a 3.5 per cent market share. Microsoft was third with 642 million views, followed by Vevo and Viacom Digital.
The report marks the second bit of good news for YouTube in as many days. Yesterday the company scored a courtroom victory over Viacom after a lengthy copyright battle.
