  |  July 19, 2011   |  Comments

Users' hunger for video content continues to grow.

Internet users in the U.S. engaged in over 6.2 billion video viewing sessions in June, representing an all time high, according to comScore's Video Metrix measurement product. The measurement firm defines a viewing session as a period of time with continuous video viewing followed by a 30-minute period of video inactivity.

Google sites, including YouTube, acounted for a whopping 37 percent of those sessions, racking up over 2 billion of them, and also attracted the largest audience with 149 million unique viewers. Music video publisher Vevo followed, with an audience of 63 million uniques, trailed by Yahoo sites with 52 million.

In the ad space, meanwhile, long-form video site Hulu served the greatest number of ads over the course of the month, followed by ad network Tremor Media and ad exchange Adap.tv.
