Research: Brazilians watch more online videos and spend more time doing so

Brazil is one of the fastest growing markets in online video usage.  Recent ComScore figures show that the growth is not coming from new users but from the same viewers watching an increasing number of videos and spending more time doing so. Between December 2011 and January 2013, Brazil kept its 42.9 million online video viewers and the share of internet video users decreased from 83% to 81.4% in that period, according to comScore and an e-marketer study.
