Expect online video to continue evolving in 2014

Singer Pharrell Williams ended 2013 with a 24-hour dance party. He released the video to his song “Happy”, which was the longest music video ever, having streamed for 24 hours. Viewers also had the option of either watching the video in real-time or a selecting a specific moment within the 24-hour period in the video. It is rather surreal to experience such ground-breaking technology if you recall that it was only nine years ago when the first video clip was broadcasted on YouTube.
