The purpose of the experiment is to test CPT (Charge/Parity/Time) inversion to determine if the universe would look the same if we simultaneously swapped all matter for antimatter, left for right, and backwards in time for forwards in time.

"As long as no red flags are raised in the experiment, we plan to move forward with the project in November," said top engineer Fedwick McGillicutty. "Our hope is that, by reversing time itself, we can do away with the whole debacle that is 'daylight savings time.'"

Ah, but you're assuming videos will continue to be uploaded at a constant rate. Extrapolate future upload rates based on the past 10 years' growth history (or an estimate, if necessary), and recalculate. I'd do it myself, but I'm too lazy and I'm pretty sure somebody else here will take it as a challenge.
