Answers

Ans 1. Integer Overflow on Youtube – Recently Youtube was forced to move from 32 bit signed integer storage to 64 bit integer as the number of views for Psy’s Gangnam Style on Youtube crossed 2,147,483,647 views which is the maximum value a 32 bit integer variable can hold.

When YouTube was first developed, nobody ever imagined that a video would be watched more than 2 billion times, so the view count was stored using a signed 32-bit integer.As for YouTube, upgrading to a 64-bit signed number means that Gangnam Style is safe until it reaches 9,223,372,036,854,775,807 views. That’s not likely to occur for another 4 billion years or so.
