61.44% of P2P traffic is video, 11.34% is audio

CacheLogic conducted direct packet monitoring of Internet backbones and ISPs data streams via Layer 7 packet analysis. 61.44% of current peer-to-peer traffic is video, 11.34% is audio, 27.22% belongs to other category. On a global scale, 46% of P2P traffic is video in Microsoft formats. 65% of all audio files by volume of traffic are still traded in the MP3 format, but a surprising 12.3% are in the open-source OGG file format (almost all of which are exclusively traded on the BitTorrent network, particularly in Asia).
