Watch The Most Liked Youtube Video Ever "Gangnam Style" With Over 2.1 Billion Views
Gangnam Style video which was uploaded in July 2012, is now the most watch video on YouTube with over 2.1 Billions views.
Named for a pricey neighborhood in Seoul, "Gangnam Style" in October snatched the Guinness World Record for the "most liked" YouTube video ever.
Gangnam is now the new Youtube King with Over 2 Billion Views
Before now, Justin Bieber video used to be the most watched video on Youtube. "Bieber Fever" has broken and given way to "Gangnam Style."
Gangnam Style is a four-minute video sang by 34-year-old Psy -- whose real name is Park Jae-san from South Korean.
"We never thought a video would be watched in numbers greater than a 32-bit integer (=2,147,483,647 views), but that was before we met PSY," wrote Google, which owns YouTube, in a blog post this week. " 'Gangnam Style' has been viewed so many times we have to upgrade!"
What this means is that when Youtube was developed nine years ago, they never envisage that a video will be watched up to 2 Billion views, so that set a benchmark to 2.1 billion views using 32-bit integer, a unit of data in computer programming languages, and the number 2,147,483,647 is its maximum positive value.
YouTube's software engineers saw the problem coming and recently updated to a 64-bit view counter across the site, Google spokesman Matt McLernon said. The view counter can now go up to 9 quintillion views (9,223,372,036,854,775,808, to be exact), which should hold PSY for a while.
"Gangnam Style" was the first clip to hit a billion views and is the most-watched video of all time.
