YouTube Movies best-known video distribution service

Advertisement

The ex-goo Research, now known as NTTCom Research, recently conducted a survey into video distribution services

Demographics

Between the 22nd and 24th of January 2015 1,018 members of the NTTCom Research monitor panel completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 53.6% of the sample were male, 13.7% in their teens, 15.4% in their twenties, 21.2% in their thirties, 17.5% in their forties, 14.7% in their fifties, and 17.5% aged sixty or older.

I think that the survey is a bit flawed as the survey seems specifically about legal distribution of commercial contents, such as with YouTube Movies, but I wonder how many people just assumed the survey was about YouTube itself; however perhaps there was more background explained to the survey respondents?

A couple of months ago I signed up for a free trial of J:COM On-Demand, but I just didn’t have any time to watch anything, so I just cancelled last night.

Streaming favoured for consuming mobile video

How often do you watch video on your mobile phone? graph of japanese statisticsjapan.internet.com recently reported on a survey by goo Research into mobile video use, the fifth time this regular survey has been conducted.

Demographics

Between the 3rd and 6th of September 2012 1,015 mobile phone-using or smartphone-using members of the goo Research online monitor group completed a private mobile internet-based questionnaire. 60.3% of the sample were female, 3.4% in their teens, 22.5% in their twenties, 36.3% in their thirties, 26.1% in their forties, and 11.7% aged fifty or older.

Being on a non-unlimited plan, I don’t watch any video on my mobile phone, and anyway I have a portable audio and video device on which I watch video. I’m currently making my way through The Goodies at a one episode per day pace, downloaded to my PC then converted to MPEG4 for consumption on the mobile device.

Less than one in ten have bought video online

Do you buy movies, other video content online? graph of japanese statisticsjapan.internet.com recently reported on a survey conducted by goo Research into video sharing services, and found, not much to anyone’s surprise I would guess, that very few had actually paid for video content online.

Demographics

Between the 10th and 13th of April 2012 1,095 members of the goo Research online monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 52.9% of the samples were male, 16.6% in their teens, 18.3% in their twenties, 21.6% in their thirties, 16.0% in their forties, 15.6% in their fifties, and 11.9% aged sixty or older.

I use video sites sometimes, myself. I keep wondering if I should get into the video blogging business – just straightforward talking head nonsense, but I’ve got a good face for radio, and a good voice for newspapers. I’d probably also need some shtick – I remember being quite impressed a few years ago by someone who did a podcast whilst walking through Tokyo, but it all boils down to that I’m just too shy to do my thing in public!

More people watching more mobile movies

Do you watch movies, video on your mobile phone, smartphone? graph of japanese statisticsgoo Research recently conducted their third regular survey into mobile phone video watching, reported on by japan.internet.com, which revealed that more people are watching video on their mobiles.

Demographics

Between the 16th and 20th of March 2012 1,041 mobile phone-using (including smartphone) members of the goo Research monitor panel answered a mobile-phone based questionnaire. 57.7% of the sample were female, 2.5% in their teens, 24.0% in their twenties, 34.2% in their thirties, 28.0% in their forties, and 11.3% aged fifty or older.

Possibly or possibily not connected to this topic is a new broadcast channel for mobile phones that has been launched this month, called Not-tv. Today at the office someone had a program guide, and there was three channels available, but it seemed mostly Korean dramas, US second-tier series, and the occasional minor Hollywood film. The other 7 or 8 One Seg versions of standard television channels are free to view, but this is 420 yen per month, with, as far as I can see, just a chat channel tacked onto the broadcasts for live interaction with the viewers and listeners.

Just for the sake of this survey, I did a search for “cat video” (in Japanese) on my smartphone, and here’s the one I watched – ack, it’s not embeddable, so here’s another one:

Music favourite type of mobile video

Do you watch video on your mobile phone, smartphone? graph of japanese statisticsYet another regular survey was reborn, this time it was goo Research’s look at mobile phone video use, expanded now to explicitly include smartphones.

Demographics

Between the 5th and 9th of September 2011 1,000 members of the goo Research mobile monitors completed a private mobile phone or smartphone-based survey. 58.1% of the sample were female, 3.4% in their teens, 22.3% in their twenties, 38.0% in their thirties, 26.9% in their forties, and 9.4% aged fifty or older.

I’m not sure what silly cat clips fall under, although I would guess that it would be more likely to be self- or friend-shot video rather than other, judging by the relative percentages!

Being on a pay-per-packet type mobile plan, I watch absolutely zero mobile phone video, although I have recently started watching Blackadder on a portable media player borrowed from the office.

mixi top SNS, Twitter top blogging service in Japan

How do you use video sharing services? graph of japanese statisticsThe results from this recent survey from goo Research and reported on by japan.internet.com into online services may not be too reliable for SNS as number two and number three in the list, GREE and Mobage Town, are both mobile phone-based social gaming sites and I feel that the demographic they appeal to differs significantly from the more PC-oriented goo monitor group. I have no data to back up this, so take it with an appropriately-sized pinch of salt.

Demographics

Over the 25th and 26th of January 2010 1,102 members of the goo Research online monitor panel completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 52.8% of the sample were male, 16.5% in their teens, 18.5% in their twenties, 20.9% in their thirties, 15.9% in their forties, 15.6% in their fifties and 12.6% aged sixty or older.

I’m on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and even have uploaded a couple of videos to YouTube.

My mobile phone is capable of movie playback, but I don’t believe I’ve ever watched any video, not even playback of video shot with the mobile’s camera.
