It's another installment of the weekly Tubefilter Chart of the Top 50 Most Viewed YouTube Channels Worldwide and it's clear that Turks love their music.

Chart Toppers

For the first time in weeks, the most subscribed YouTube channel of all-time, PewDiePie does not occupy the #1 spot on the charts. Instead, the Turkish Phonographic Industry Society's MÜ-YAP channel took advantage of the 23-year-old Swedish gamer's channel's 10% week-over-week decrease in views to land the top position. MÜ-YAP closed out the week with 46.2 million views to PewDiePie's 43.9 million.

Following in third place is British boy band One Direction, whose sustained a steady increase in views since the release of their latest single Best Song Ever and heading on their North American tour. Their channel witnessed an 8% increase on the week, attracting nearly 27 million views.

In the #4 spot is professional twerker Miley Cyrus. Her controversial performance at the MTV VMAs helped boost her channel up 53% on the week to almost 26.5 million views. And rounding out the Top is YouTube's most favored US-based online video gamer SkyDoesMinecraft, with 25.2 million views on the week.

Top Gainers

Miley Cyrus' duet with Robin Thicke at the 2013 Video Music Awards certainly had a huge impact on her own viewership numbers. But it also had a tremendous impact on the viewership numbers of those channels that covered the event and its pop cultural aftermath. 5shockwav3's two paparazzo-shot videos of Cyrus after her performance helped the channel to amass 24.2 million views on the week. That's up an incredible 10,040% from the previous week's numbers.

Hollywood Backstage and PMC's Hollywood Life saw similar gains due to their Cyrus coverage. The former was up 1,106% on the week to nearly 15 million views and the #24 spot, while the latter garnered a 235% views increase to top out at 11.4 million views on the week.

Distribution

All in all, the top 50 most viewed YouTube channels accounted for 859,919,407 views last week. Here's the distribution of a few of those channels by multi-channel network:

  • VEVO: 13 channels in the Top 50, with One Direction at #4.
  • Machinima: 6 channels in the Top 50, with SkyDoesMinecraft the top-ranked of the network at #3.
  • Maker Studios: 3 channels in the Top 50, with PewDiePie at the #2 spot.
  • IGN, Zefr: 2 channels each in the Top 50, with IGN's Entertainment channel at #33 and Zefr's Movieclips Trailers at #14.

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: 5 channels in the Top 50.
  • South Korea, Russia, Sweden: 2 channels each in the Top 50.
