YouTube announced it's now serving two billion hits daily, just seven months after it first hit one billion downloads per day.
The news comes as the site celebrates the day five years ago when the first beta version of YouTube was launched.
Over seven months ago the video site clocked up one billion downloads.
"I see this great growth opportunity in the online video market and we are positioning ourselves to be a leader," co-founder Chad Hurley told BBC News.
"We are a stage and we give everyone in the world an opportunity to participate and that is being a video platform for creating a solution for people to not only upload and distribute their videos on a global basis but to find and share videos."
