If you try and watch the video that used to be the Live Stream of Felix’s Space jump from the edge of space, you will find that the video shows up as Private. This means you don’t know how many views and Likes it got. However, if you view your History on YouTube, you can infact see the stats of the video itself, even though it is private. Below is a picture showing the statistic, which anyone can view in their YouTube history if they watched the video at some point during it being available as a Live Stream.
It received over 32 million views in total. Remember that it was also live on streaming sites which weren’t connected to YouTube, as well as many other websites who were feeding the information in alternative ways, so this number is much higher and very hard to work out in total, so I won’t try to!
The video also received 320,531 Likes, and around 8000 idiots gave it a thumbs down. That’s a huge ratio however.
And the time? Well, the stream was live for a total of 7 hours, 57 minutes and 51 seconds. Just under 8 hours. It was a great stream, although I only watched the final parts of the ascent. As it got closer to the drop more and more people were tuning in, and it was at that point that around 8 million people were watching at any one time.
Did you tune in? The people who missed it watch it on videos afterwards, clocking up millions of additional views. Like I said, a total viewcount would be a nightmare to work out.
