ComScore's Online Video Rankings are out for August 2013 and there's very little change from last month with the big players such as YouTube, Vevo, AOL and Fullscreen all holding on to their top positions.
Ever wondered how to make the best milkshake or how to correctly serve a watermelon? The HowToBasic channel go out of their way to give us the best instructional videos on YouTube. We get a peak behind the scenes and the lowdown on the use of so many eggs.....
Fullscreen is going to manage America's Funniest Home Videos' (AFV) channel, after inking a deal with AFV company FishBowl. The deal illustrates that you may have content that is perfectly tailored for YouTube, but you may still not know how to market it there.
Fullscreen's latest Series A funding paves the way for the multi-channel network to start investing original programming. They already announced an original series with Devin Super Tramp awhile back, as well as Ryan Seacrest Productions.
Fullscreen has all sorts of exciting news to report: the hiring of Mekanism's Brendan Gahan as their new VP of Brand Strategy. And one of their content creators. Devin Super Tramp, has crossed a million subscribers and is now announcing a new extreme sports series.
Members of Fullscreen's "FAM," or "Fullscreen Artist Mix," can now legally monetize covers of songs they choose from Universal Music Publishing. The deal will also give the original artist compensation. So, everybody wins. Plus, there will be a program in place to monetize already-existing covers. Pretty sweet.
