Minecraft videos are now 1 trillion views on YouTube, but the most popular videos are not actually made in Minecraft

Minecraft has been around for more than a decade, and at that time, diamond axe and creeper and Steve’s bulk became ubiquitous. They are also all over YouTube, and today the platform is celebrating more than 1 trillion Minecraft video views, which contains some impressive statistics on all creations to date. I spent a lot of time watching Minecraft live broadcasts, building guides, etc., but these were not the most popular Minecraft videos of the past decade. All the while, the most viewed Minecraft YouTube video was not even made in Minecraft at all.

To commemorate this milestone, YouTube brought together some Visual performance The largest Minecraft video of all on the platform since 2010. They are divided into the categories I expected, such as “survival games”, “survival multiplayer games” and “speed pass”, but also added “role playing” and “animation”. Although popularity varies by country (and YouTube shows this), the category that has dominated for many years is animation, with close to 5 billion views in 2020 and 2021.
