The Day In Online Video News And Views 14th November 2013

A third of all searches conducted on YouTube are news and current affairs related, (according to YouTube), and now Vice is investing $50 Million over the next three years to grow its news division to take advantage of the demand for that type of content. The company has hired 60 additional journalists over the past two months to increase their capacity to report on global events via online streaming. They are launching a dedicated YouTube channel on YouTube, "Vice News" alongside the introduction of a new online video series.

The rumours of a ban on using photo apps at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia may have been laughed off by the Olympic Committee but the restrictions on video remain. It's a rule that's been in place since London 2012 but it's going to be a hard one to enforce. These and other stories from the last 24 hours in video land.
