Yahoo! has passed Facebook and has essentially tied with Vevo as the second most popular video site on the Web, according to December numbers released by comScore this morning.  The most popular site remains YouTube.

In November, Yahoo trailed Vevo and Facebook in video views, comScore reported.

"We're Gonna Go Crazy with Video in 2012"

Last week at CES, we spoke with Yahoo's video chief Erin McPherson about the company's video efforts which includes a new assocation with Tom Hanks and his animated program Electric City.

Ramping up production, she says "we're gonna go crazy with video in 2012."

We taped this interview at the International Academy of Web Television Awards where Yahoo was a sponsor.  Below is photo of McPherson and Paul Kontonis, chairman of the IAWTV and a VP at Digitas.
