Youtube not updating views Free phone sex chat no credit card needed

A large portion of You Tube videos are watched on other sites in embeddable players (like the one below of Erepublik CEO Alexis Bonte giving us an Elevator Pitch).

youtube not updating views-64

However, if a user is directed to the You Tube site on clicking the embedded video on the external website, it would register as an additional count to the video views.

Additionally, changes to video and account information on our site such as video view count can take a few hours to update and synchronize.

We’re constantly working to make that happen a lot faster and appreciate your patience.

Regards, Shweta The You Tube Team” This is just from a support rep who may be mistaken about You Tube’s policy on counting views (we have an email in to You Tube asking for clarification), but her response does suggest that at least some views from other sites do not count.

One reason for this might be that some external sites put You Tube videos on autoplay whenever the page they are on loads. Because the views do change a few hours later, there is just no way of knowing if it was from us or someone else.

That can game the whole You Tube popularity system, so You Tube does not count autoplays, as New Teevee recently found out. So as a final test, I’ve embedded an Elevator Pitch below from the CEO of Erepublik, a massive online social strategy game.And indeed, our reader’s video was on a site that autoplayed his video. We use You Tube for all the videos on Elevator Pitches, and we don’t set those to autoplay. Yesterday, we hit play repeatedly on a bunch of videos on Elevator Pitches, and then went over to their You Tube to see if any of the views registered. Then we started watching the videos on You Tube itself. At the time of this post the video has been viewed only 490 times.(For more on how the various video sites count views, see this Tube Mogul report). We’ll see if we can move that number up at all from here.Update: We’ve received word from a You Tube spokesperson who told us: Viewcounts are important to the community and are a reflection of the interests and intents of video viewers.Autoplaybacks are not counted toward the visible “views” numbers displayed on the You Tube site because autoplaybacks are not viewer initiated. Update 2: The view count for the video below is up to 1,786 views by Saturday morning.Most of those are presumably from this post, and took a while to register.
