10-15 Sec. Video Ads Preferred; Consumers Play Only 15% of an Online Video or Audio

Approximately 85% of all online audio/video activities were concentrated on the top 5 categories - Entertainment, Technology, News & Politics, Music,  and Sports. While technology is by far the most popular audio content, entertainment dominates the total % of video plays with 36% of all online video played, but only 6% of available video, according to PdZinger research. Other highlights:
  • Consumers typically play only 15% of an entire online video or audio (the average run time for video is 7.5 minutes and audio is 22 minutes). 
  • Consumers will listen to audio for almost 3 times longer (an average of 3 min.) as they will watch a video (an average of 1 min).
  • Consumers are 6 times more likely to play content online than they are to download it.
