The most viewed video was ‘’Fire in Bozidarceva Street’’ which has had more than 5000 views. The total number of views has reached almost 100.000. Considering the fact that some of video contents were taken over by Blic online, B92.net, Vecernje Novosti and many others, the number of total views could reach more than a million.
