User-Generated Content (UGC) is overwhelming the Internet with its interactivity and various contents. However, traditional UGC still have constrains on videos' length and size, which block out a wide variety of potential popular contents. In this paper, the authors present the first experimental measurements and analysis of an Unconstrained User-Generated Content (UUGC) system - a test site (so-called "T" site in this paper) of a leading VOD service provider in China. This test site is a video-sharing portal just like traditional UGC, while its contents are not constrained by either duration or size.
