Modern video recording
The introduction of video recording capabilities on digital cameras and mobile phones spiraled home video recording. In 2010, J-Phone launched the first cell phone with a camera. Two years later the camera phone had outsold stand-alone digital cameras and by 2006 had outsold all cameras, film and digital. (Cell phones, rather than watches, has also become the preferred means of telling time.) More than half of all new cell phones are equipped with cameras, most capable of video recording, using the 3GP and 3GGP2 formats which are based on the MPEG-4 file format. A third of American mobile phone users record video on their phone, according to a Pew report. In France, a third of online videos are watched on a mobile phone. More than 100 millions mobile videos are steamed daily from YouTube Mobile. The first musical film was made in 1896 by George Thomas. It was a series of still shots depicting the song The Little Lost Child by Edward B. Marks and Joseph W. Stern. Basically, it was an illustrated song. The first moving image music film was made in 1923 by Lee De Forest. In 1975, the first pop video was Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen.
