The impact of social Medias such as YouTube, Twitter, and FaceBook etc on the modern world is led to huge growth in the size of video data over the cloud and web. The evolution of smart phones/Tabs could be one of the reasons for increasing in the rate of huge video data over the web. Due to the rapid evolution of web videos over the web, it is becoming difficult to identify popular, non-popular and average popular videos without watching the content of it. To cluster web videos based on their metadata into 'Popular', 'Non-Popular', and 'Average Popular' is one of the complex research questions for the Social Media and Computer Science researchers'. In this work, we propose two effective methods to cluster web videos based on their meta-objects. Large scale web video meta-objects such as- length, view counts, numbers of comments, rating information are considered for knowledge discovery process. The two clustering algorithms-Expectation Maximization (EM) and Distribution Based (DB) clustering are used to form three types of clusters. The resultant clusters are analyzed to find popular video cluster, average popular video cluster and non-popular video clusters. And also the results of EM and DB clusters are compared as a step in the process of knowledge discovery.
