Will YouTube be making use of QR Codes soon? The worlds second largest video streaming site Youku (400 million plus daily video views) is China’s YouTube equivalent and they have just added a QR Code to every video (image below). There are probably two reasons for this move. Firstly China’s mobile internet users (390 million) exceed the number of desktop users and secondly unlike YouTube who have a 15 minute default limit Youku allows users to upload videos irrespective of length. After starting to view a video on their desktop the QR Code gives users the opportunity to continue viewing on their smartphone. This looks like a useful feature, so will YouTube do the same?
