Wow. I never knew Youtube was such serious business.

And whoa -- he said 'serious business' right when I typed 'serious business'.

Nickel2 - Yes, but having 100 people watch the video at the same time would take some doing. It's not impossible, but quite unlikely, hence why you'll usually see 301 / 302

Am I to understand that by this explanation, if the counter had reached 299, and a server input came along with a block of 100 views the counter would trip to 399 then stop?

It's odd because it used to sometimes freeze at the mid 400s as well


not really if it's posted on a high traffic site like 4chan or somewhere

simultaneous actions like that happen all the time on single webservers, so if it's being compiled across multiple servers, that error threshold would probably be that little bit larger...just a lot of actions over a few milliseconds

So you mean THIS probably has a lot of views taken away from it, then?

This reminds me of Animaniacs' useless facts. Here's one of my own:

Did you know that peacocks sleep in trees?

interesting that they took misleading thumbnails and quick closing of a page into account...the rest that was mentioned i would have assumed anyway

@5Cats, I'll say this on behalf of Matwix. The feeling is mutual.

Really close, MacGuffin, but not exactly. It doesn't freeze your IP's views and wait for more real views. It switches over to an algorithm that scrutinizes all views. It verifies every view that you received, beyond 300. It takes several hours for the count to be run through and for it to update the info on your page.

It seems to understand this stuff really well. You should watch the video. It is interesting.

Thanks MacGuffin for repeating what I just watched in the video. I didn't quite understand what was being said .... it could be all those foreign accents.

I know the answer without even playing the video: because anyone that finds this happening to them has been spamming their own Channel. When your view counts hit 300, YT begins to use a different algorithm to indicate your viewing figures. If you've got a lot of traffic from one IP address or from your own Google account, that's taken into account at that juncture and your view count gets frozen until more 'real' viewers actually view your videos.
