It's another installment of the weekly Tubefilter Chart of the Top 50 Most Viewed YouTube Channels Worldwide and this week the Top 10 marches to the beat of new releases.

Chart Toppers

The most subscribed YouTube channel of all-time PewDiePie retains his #1 spot on the charts with a week-over-week increase in views of 8%. The 23-year-old Swedish gamer's channeled ended the week with 48.7 million views. That's just four million views ahead of The Turkish Phonographic Industry Society's MÜ-YAP channel, which attracted 44.8 million views in the last seven days. YouTube's most favored US-based online video gamer SkyDoesMinecraft rounds out the Top 3 despite a 15% week-over-week decrease in views to top out at 27.3 million on the week.

Katy Perry jumps up from the #33 spot to #4, due mostly to the release of the lyric video to her latest single Roar. The emoticon-infused video bumped the pop star up to 24.7 million views on the week. That's more one million above the British-based boy band One Direction, which seems to have some staying power. The group is down only 2% in views on the week, settling in at 23.7 million.

Top Gainers

The top release of Lady Gaga's official lyric video and official music video for her latest single Applause gave her the biggest gain of this week's Top 50 Most Viewed YouTube Channels Worldwide. The spiritual successor to Madonna's musical return from her extended hiatus bumped up her view count 431% on the week to top out at 22.5 million views. Those numbers are good enough for #7 on the Chart, but not good enough to beat Katy Perry.

The other female pop star in the Top 10 saw a 100% increase in views thanks to the aforementioned release of her Roar music video. That puts her in the #4 spot and more than 2 million views ahead of Gaga. At least for now.

Distribution

All in all, the top 50 most viewed YouTube channels accounted for 817,086,918 views last week. Here's the distribution of a few of those channels by multi-channel network:

  • VEVO: 14 channels in the Top 50, with Katy Perry at #4.
  • Machinima: 6 channels in the Top 50, with SkyDoesMinecraft the top-ranked of the network at #2.
  • Maker Studios, WMG: 3 channels each in the Top 50, with PewDiePie on top again at #1 and Ryan Lewis Productions (aka Macklemore) at #32.
  • IGN, Zefr: 2 channels each in the Top 50 with IGN Entertainment at #18 and Zefr's Movieclips Trailers at #10

And here's the distribution of the this week's Top 50 YouTube channels by country of origin:

  • United States: 32 channels in the Top 50.
  • Great Britain: 4 channels in the Top 50.
  • South Korea, Sweden: 2 channels each in the Top 50.
