YouTube has been forced to update its software due to the overwhelming popularity of the video for Gangnam Style, released by Korean rapper Psy in 2012. The video broke the view counter when it reached 2,147,483,647, the maximum number capable with a 32-bit signed integer. The counter has now been updated to 64-bit and will be able to track views up to 9,223,372,036,854,775,807 which shouldn't be hit for around 4 billion years at the current pace.
