No more cheaters.
I really like the idea.
and it has been that way for like ever
i like the idea to...but its not working.Because one of my friends NAturalBornGamers featured my video on his channel and it got to 256 views and it stoped..
my video has been frozen and I didn't cheat it actually got those views
Its good idea but the problem is that it could take a really long time before we get the accurate views.I hope this issue does get fix plus the sub box issue needs to be fix as well as I have had messages saying it didnt arrive in their subscription box.
How do you know who cheats? -_-
What!!! you just deleted all the old comments
comments like this
look at my channel and watch my video please people, just click it really.... see how it does...
about f******g timetoo long have the view counts been going wrong
Stuff that needs fixing:When you click on all subscribers, it only comes up with like 23.There's a couple other stuff but I forgot.
Have you aorted this out now youtube? After deleting all the previous comments of people saying how much they hate your corrupt behaviour?
Why don't you change the name while your at it toYouTube: Destroying Itself
Fucking YOUTUBEI Am tired of all that bullshit YT Is full of bugs in indox,videos,comments, etcI AM THINKING OF LEAVINGFUCK YOUTUBE!!!!!
HELLO MY VIEW COUNT IS NOT WORKING FOR THE LAST 7 DAYS, I DONT USE SPAM OR ANYTHING I NO THE VIEW COUNT IS NOT WORKING BECAUSE FRIENDS HAVE VIEWED AND THERE COUNT HAVE NOT BEEN ADDED,THIS IS MY URL http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JV9cQAJlLik
I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO ADD THAT BY FREEZING MY VIEW COUNT YOU TUBE ARE SURGESTING THAT I AM CHEATING, WICH IS SLANDERES AND INSULTING SO PLEASE SORT OUT MY VIEW COUNT AND PLEASE MAKE SURE IN FUTURE YOU ONLY ACT ON THE GUILTY AND NOT THE INNOCENT
Now Timmy accuses CheekTV of spamming and I'm essentially getting what I deserve. I don't even know how to use bots etc. If I did, would I have just 250 subs? No.If I went into Maccy D's and said there's a rat in my burger, and they said "You did it." Surely that's libel? And would be a total outrage!My views come from catching the Zeitgeist and video responses. Not from sitting there hitting refresh or paying someone to do it (or however else it's done). Explain this...if it's people gaming the system, how does sxephil etc get frozen for ages, with their overall view counts seemingly less too?This issue is YouTube wide and I'm getting closer and closer to writing a press release "End Of Web 2.0" and listing ALL of YouTube's failings and sending it out to my friends in the media. If they weren't #1 and owned the biggest search engine online people would speak up. Partners have more to lose as they make money from Google Adsense etc.Timmy to CheekTV: "The inflated view count number on these videos will be frozen until actual views catch up to the published, artificial, view count......No views on videos are being reversed or lost. All real video views will be recorded on videos. Thanks, Timmy"
Erm... let's see... how about... 1 view per IP address... done.. instant view count update.. one simple line of PHP.. It's not difficult, ScrewTube.
ok youtube i;v informed you about problems with my account ie view count wrongly frozen for over a weeki would like some action instead of no action wich is your current position
Hi Michelle, it is great that you are addressing the problem of inflated view counts. One view per IP address would make it a fairer though I feel, although saying that I have some people's videos that I personally watch over and over and I would like them to register a view on my behalf so good luck on trying to please everybody! I would go a stage further though, those videos where people are artificially inflating their views, by an auto refresh tool or similar should be suspended, harsh but fair! :)
Its a good idea if you get it right its not a good idea if you get it wrong like my account
What's happened to my video clips? loads of music videos from the US have now been frozen out and I can't get at loads of my favourites! "not available in your Country" it says -why not? This is crazy . Please restore them! Thanks!
Sounds like a good idea, and I agree it is unfair on other people, but you need to look at the partners, I'm sure that they arm't being truthful about their views either.
THANK YOU YOUTUBE FOR SORTING OUT MY VIEW COUNT,YOU KNOW A ENGLISH MAN'S WORD IS HIS BOND, AS SIR WINSTON CHURCHILL SAID"WE WILL FIGHT THEM ON THE BEACHES,WE WILL FIGHT THEM IN THE AIR, WE WILL NEVER SURENDER" SO WE ALL KNOW THAT THE ENGLISH ARE HONEST AND THE" BRAINS OF THE WORLD" HER MAJESTY QUEEN ELIZABETH WILL BE MOST PLEASED THAT MY VIEW COUNT IS WORKING ONCE AGAIN.THANK YOU VERY MUCH "OLD CHAPS"
Hello Youtube,This is Her Majesty Queen Elizebeth here, I would like to thank you for returning Baldy Brian's view count,I will inform my Armed Services to Stand Down on this matter,Yours Liz,
WTF Is This?! One Of My Videos Are Not Getting Anymore Views! YOUTUBE! GIVE ME BACK MY VIEWS! D:<
On my vid "Wave board movie 08" the view-counter stopped counting on 32, but at my site it shows 40 views. WTF?
Have accounts been unfrozen.. is there a remedy for the innocent by standers caught in the view count freeze..who are just trying to promote there art? thanks
My video hasn't been inflated at and has been stuck at 202 videws for two days. This is insane.
Geez, too many people complaining. My account is just fine, and my view counter works normally. I have only one video frozen, but that's all. Nothing unusual on my account. I feel privileged! lol
Change this faggot ass problem. I didn't cheat. It just won't update!
omg.. youtube, you really think i would cheat? i mean my videos are usually music stuff that i like, so ofcourse im gonna listen to them once in a while, can you please fix my video? This idea is insane.. i mad. Im not reupoading my videos again!!
This is the first video I have ever uploaded on youtube and its frozen! I havent done anything wrong, sort it out youtube!
Right, so this time round I didn't have any embeds on sites, no mailshot to friends and family and no link in facebook....still frozen. Now tell me it's me it's to do with inbound links. Youtube is broke. So fix it! :P
My video stopped on 201 views and I know people are watching it. I'm going to dump youtube and turn to veoh if it doesn't change!!!!Outrageous!
Hi Michelle,My second comment here; whilst I am very understanding when you are performing site maintenance, the video I uploaded on Sunday has stuck at 202 again, whilst I noticed that some of my earlier videos that were stuck are moving again. You must appreciate how frustrating it is to put effort in to a video and to not get rewarded with the views that the video is obviously getting as people are leaving comments. It does make me wonder what the point is in uploading new videos at the moment and that is lost revenue for us both.On another point, there was hundreds of comments here, now only 36, what have you done with them all? Of course people would look and say "Only 36 comments, obviously people are not bothered!" but you know that is not the truth!Best wishes and I really hope you can resolve this glitch soon, Anthony
One of my videos has stuck at 201. I think that will be a good idea if you let us know what rules we should to follow in order to have a normal view counter. I don't feel confortable be in the group of the so called "cheatears". Please do have more respect!
Me again! Now my Tuesday night video has stuck on 204 whilst ... yes, you guessed it, my Sunday night video is still on 202, just like it was 23 hours ago! Maybe it is because my video is on autoplay, so when I go to my channel to read a comment it registers a view; or maybe it is because I go to my video to reply to comments and that registers a view too ... I am only guessing but there is a DEFENENT bug in this new system! All the best:)
I agree with the reasons for this however I think the new system is a little too sensitive? I do hope no views are being lost? On way of reducing costs if they are xD
My new video:#96 - Most Discussed (Today) - Music#42 - Top Favourited (Today) - Music#36 - Top Rated (Today) - Music #84 - Most Viewed (Today) - Musicians - It was @ #77 untill the view count stuck @ 202.I will be uploading elsewhere if this is not fixed.
I've just gone to My Videos and the count has gone up to 207, but no change elsewhere. I have other artists/musicians involved with the video, they have been pushing it on myspace etc. It promotes a dvd and the view count is (was) an important way of measuring interest for a dvd release.17 5star ratings, 10 comments and favourited 12 times, and the video has been featured on some top Hip Hop blogs and websites.The view count just doesn't add up.This seems to be happening to so many users without so much as a warning, I must assume it's a built in glitch that is being hopefully sorted.The whole look of our video channels have changed overnight without any warning either. Swanky new graphics and "looks" are no good if there's no-one there to see them! This view freeze issue should be top priority.Thanks.
I need some help...2 of my videos are frozen!!!youtube please it can't be possible because many friends of mine are watching my videos...what shall I do???
Guys fix it. Two of my vids are stuck.
2 of my videos are stuck , i dont no weather someone has spamed the video or something ? please fix this!
My views are stuck at 201. What`s the reason? Please fix the view counter.
my views are stuck and won't go up. please fix them.
don't upload your video on youtube again ,your video will download by other very easy,and your views will never grow up,upload your video to youtube ,no meaning,no fun and i will delete all my videoand go to other site
if you watch your video a couple time ,youtube will frozen your view count thencall you a CHEATER,you upload your video is free to youtube,they earn money from yourvideo and call you a CHEATER ,you just like a stupid ..
I have watched my own videos - I admit that. I do it often so that I can check the playback quality of the new videos in HD (as sometimes they are very jumpy), I also visit the video page to read my subscribers/viewers comments; post reply comments and check to see if the more information section is still relevant and up to date.I promote my video by sharing them with my friends and subscribers and have started to promote them using annotations on some of my mcpcshowcase videos to attract attention to my new HD channel.All of this activity I believe is within, or should be within acceptable tolerances and strongly believe that YouTube has blocked my view count thinking that I am behaving fraudulently. I want to stress at this point that I do not artificially inflate my view count on purpose but to carry out the above actions which you can only do (in my knowledge) by viewing the watch page. Having read hundreds of posts from angry users on your own community forums page and on various blogs on the net I am slowly coming to the conclusion that YouTube doesn't care about it's smaller subscribers and only those who attract revenue by posting ads on their videos etc which is completely unfair.How can YouTube justify rolling out such an unfair policy. It's borderline slanderous.I look forward to your response / YouTube's response (if you deem it worthwhile to respond).

This system is poorly thought out and denying people viewing figures that are truthful and deserved. For example, I uploaded a video over the weekend that today has hit the biggest political blog in the UK. However, the view counter is stuck at 202 and has been for 4 hours. I know that thousands of people are watching it but I cannot see that, or use Insight to do any analysis. There has been no spamming, though I have sent the video round my work colleagues so there may be a couple of dozen hits from the same IP but that is no reason to suspend the counter! The video is here, should you or your colleagues be willing to do anything to correct your error: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5LHqpzjMTDY
YouTube is seriously letting down their users by enforcing this ludicrous policy. The whole point of YouTube is to allow your friends, family and anybody else who is interested to access your hard thought out videos. It is now clear that all three videos on my channel as well as my channel counter is frozen. I actively promoted by new mcpcshowcaseHD channel prior to its launch to ensure as many of my existing subscribers on my standard definition mcpcshowcase channel could see my new quality material. This obviously resulted in a lot of video views in a short space of time. Can you YouTube explain why exactly such a harsh policy is in place? The success of my channel is being seriously harmed which is totally unfair!
Our videos have been affected, too. Our count has been frozen for a long time now. It is interesting that the count stopped at just little over 200, like with many other users; that seems very strange to me... This is really unacceptable. We demand that this be corrected very soon. A question for other YouTube users: Please, is there some viable alternative to YouTube? I really do not want to put up with such a lousy service.
It's disappointing to see a video I uploaded two weeks ago still getting only 201 views - the number it was at... just under two weeks ago.I was going to upload some more videos, but I don't see the point until this is fixed.
My April Fools Day video has got stuck at 330 views on April fools - so I'm officially losing views every minute that passes. Thanks!
I think there is a little problem with the counts. When I search for my films on my computer several come up with no counts. When I click on them to view them they have between 20 and 65 counts each. Why is this???Surely it should show the counts on the search as everyone elses seems to?Cheers Kirk
Hi What's up ? Few days before i saw a new a portal which called www.healthcaremagic.com which provides Live Chat with doctors online.sometime You have so much trouble reaching a doctor and you keep calling the doctors at odd hours so this may be useful for you as doctors are available online 24X7. Try it and forward it to other also.
Hi, where do you go to appeal a decision by youtube to remove a video - which is now all over the news, featured in every major newspaper (which is where the video was retrieved) as well as on !! youtube !!Where my video was rejected - others were not !!The owner of the video - gave permission for public dispersal - so there is no reason why it should not be shown. The contact is a maze !!If anyone can help!
Hi Michelle,Perhaps the problem is with network autonomy. Why does view count dominate youtube? Any view should be valid. There is no fair or unfair, and it should be admitted that this is under influence of paying members, who apparently have something to lose from independent videos with "privateered" views, no problems of course with the purchased and automatic views that come for Youtube sponsors.I'm afraid that views never count.Regards, BG
I find view counts slow as well. There is obviously a monopoly on the view counts because its earning youtube money. Easy Cash!
We got a invitation from an organisation in a comment on one of our videos.This organisation claims to be able to sell to YouTube channels, quantity numbers of YouTube ratings, channel views, video views, and comments, for a fee.The fees for this service range from a couple of dollars to hundreds of dollars - basically buying video views.We see that we are not the only channel to have got an "invitation" to bump up our video views and channel viewers for a fee.What is YouTube's policy on the service these companies are hawking?This practice looks distinctly dodgy from where we are sitting.
I think the view counts being so low might be to do with not being able to watch the videos as well as other problems. Quite a lot, I go to watch a video and it will say that I cannot watch the video because I'm in the wrong country. I think if this was sorted out so that people from anywhere can watch a video, there will be a lot more views.
Youtube is horrible.
Youtube is raping us in the anus.
With almost all of my videos of this year it happened: first they stopped on just over 200, now I have 3 videos blocked on 300+. This amount was there in a few hours, now blocked for 2 days. On links there are hundreds of views, but on Youtube they remain blocked. Strange and annoying !!
My accounts name is csrmusic. I have had this account since the 25th of September of 2006. I recently added 3 new videos to my account and as soon as their views hit 303, 302, and 301 they completely froze and their views will not go up any further. I def. know i am not a spammer considering i have been using youtube to upload my videos for a while now. Not only did youtube freeze those three videos but it also froze all of my 15 videos. PLEASE i need help with this problem as fast as possible i am on a process of major promotion and need to know if people are watching my videos !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE fix THIS PROBLEM !PLEASE FIX THE PROBLEM.......URGENT!!!!!!!!!! ! TAKE AN ACTION........WHAT HAPPEN WITH YOUR STAFF!!!.............
My friend’s account is ImanuelCZ and the view count for his video of the song Podzimní louky stopped at 304 many days ago, while the view counts for other videos uploaded by him are rising. Please, YouTube, look into this. There seems to be a glitch of some kind there. If the view count had been frozen, please, remove this freeze. I am sure that if you examine this account, you will find out there was no spamming so there is no reason to freeze the view count. I thank you on my own and my friend’s behalf.
Please ! My accounts name is csrmusic! i really need ya'll to fix my view count; i am in the middle of major publicity and promotion and i need my views to work! i need to know who is looking at my videos! TAKE AN ACTION PLEASE! I need this as fast as possible! I am not a spammer i have had this account for 3 years now! COME ON FIX MY PROBLEM!
I have about 3 videos stuck on 301 views now i know they are getting more views because it hit 301 in about 1 day so it has to be higher, i have been using youtube fore years and am not a spammer. i really need to get this fixed otherwise i have no idea how many views im getting!!!!!!my account name is jordanfriesen
I've got a video that's been stuck at 302 for over a week. I know for a fact that it's being viewed, but nothing is showing up. I'm part of a contest that determines the winners based on their view counts so I'm relying on this to have a chance to win. Is there even anyone working on this problem. My account name is atomikmoogle. With all due respect get off your asses and fix the damn problem.
Account: pboogie1023The view count on videos should match up with the Insight Data. Therein lies the problem. Why do you produce the Insight Data, yet leave the view counts frozen. It doesn't make sense. In my opinion YouTube is trying to police something that is impossible to regulate, while penalizing users for something beyond our control. My account is too small to even suspect spam to be the issue on my part or a third party. Most of my video views are produced the old fashion way. The majority of views I get are via Related Videos or YouTube Search. It's very disheartening to work hard to find an audience only to have your counts distorted. I'm not anywhere near going viral, but to me any video I have that reaches the 500 mark is a great success to me considering my resources. It's very strange that the comments before mine state that their videos freeze at around the 300 mark. That's consistent with my problem. The two videos that I've noticed recently are stuck on 303 and 388.I've posted an alert to this problem visible to everyone that visits my page. The more people that know about it, may encourage you guys to move on it.
This update is stupid and not to mention it's completely impossible to judge what views are from who. You never know because what is some assh*le just decides to spam one of your videos with views over and over so that it does this and freezes? Then what? You video doesn't get any views because some a*s. This update smells like the rear end of Donkey Kong, literally! We updated and uploaded a new version of one of our videos, and it's been stuck at 317 views for awhile now. Some of our friends recently viewed it, and it didn't go up any views at all, that was a day ago and it still has not added any new view counts yet, even though we got a new comment overnight (which makes it obvious there was atleast one more view). So apparently YouTube had frozen our video, yet we were not getting views from third-parties, we just happened to have good tags for the search engines.Again, there is no way to tell where and who each one view is coming from. Have you ever watched a video more than once on one account just because you liked it? Do it now, and the video in question is frozen at that amount of views.Fix this problem!
i posted an iPhone vid yesterday as probably one of the very first after the presentation apple did. my views got frozen too, and i don't know why or what i have done wrong. i suspect they might be afraid that the apple sponsored vid's on there will have less views and therefore will be set back in ranking!? I just don't get it.
I have posted a video called Ron Mac "The King Is in Da Building" on 6/16/09 and It has been stuck at 65 views for 2 days now and I know people have hit us up because we just recently recieved new comments.I'm not a spammer and I really need to know If I'm getting views for my music or not.PLEASE ASSIST US WITH THIS PROBLEM!!
I still have a video stuck on 303 as I posted 3 weeks ago. Now one of my videos is stuck on 301. Again my Insight Data tells me that these vids are among my top 3, so there is no reason why they remain frozen. I wonder when YouTube will answer our calls to fix this problem. A March 14, 2009 notification is not good enough. Can we please get some kind of update. Perhaps one that shows us what our bogus, inflated, videos counts are.
This explanation is a hundred percent crap! You tube is just trying to manipulate "Who" gets the most views so they can sell that to their advertisers or people willing to pay tor kiss your-tube-butt for the "most viewed list". What a bunch of lies. Either their system works or it DONT. Dont lie to thinking adults because we want to trust you. You are manipulating the view count because it doesn't jive with the numbers the people who PAID you to be in the "Top" I know this to be true, because I have been watching a video for weeks and when it first went up it had 300plus views and then the next day it stopped counting and never EVER re-set. It is the most popular video and You---You tube stopped it! How much do you want for natural popularity google/you-tube? We know what you are up to. Answer
How do you know what is spam and what isn't? I mean really?
I COMPLETELY AGREE WITH YOU LISA!! THIS IS RIDICULOUS!
this is crap! 3 of my videos are stuck at around 300 and won't go up anymore! its really annoying! i don't know if they ever will! why can't they just fix it! it only seems to be certain people who are having this problem.
The Google so-called "Help" forums about this matter have many more complaints than this blog. All posts are about the same thing: frozen viewcounts, and like me, have had video counts arrested for months or in my case two videos' counts frozen for over four weeks, for no apparent reason. This is patently unfair, and I believe there is a hidden reason behind it. My two frozen videos have been linked on Facebook, MySpace and have been "Twittered", and embedded on a site, yet they obstinately remain at 303 & 306 views and have done since August 27th.If YouTube wish to continue claiming that it is the World's Number one video-sharing site, it had better fix this problem, stop the victimisation of some users, and have a place where contact with the site operators is easily available, otherwise it will see an exodus to other up and coming sites who are eager to replace it.
We have videos "frozen" also, this it totally ridiculous not to know the rules or what is real and what is not. Good time for some competition!
This is weak. All my videos stop getting counted at around 300 views. I'm pissed!
My latest video frozen at 306,,i didn't do anything...so what should i do to get my real views number?...because i now for sure that more than 306 people viewed my video!
I have seen this happening specially when you reach 306, 307 or 312 views on a video. This has happened to me.
Ummm can i have my videos view counters started again please they have froze at around 300-400 views this is really annoying and i would like them to start working again thank you. i agree that i did refresh one video alot of times but can you not just reset the views to like 150 which they were before i refreshed? thanks youtube it would be a great help as i didnt know of this rue and i was being a bit immature.
Do you little people really expect YouTube, the media giant, to listen to your mewling? Pony up some hard cash and you'll get hits, we've got a business to run here!

Youtube do you think the people who are uploading videos are stupid i thing that it is well out of order that youtube are freezing the view count to arround 300 hits this is blatent match fixing and some one sould take youtube to court over this issue by trying to stop the competion who arent buying into there ad sence partner ship programe. if youtube is trying to pass this view count freezing as a way of stopping spammers i say epic fail we all have to log in under a unique identy so why cant the view count reflect one view by one person regardless of how many times they watch it, im sure youtube has many back chat anwsers to wriggle out of why they are doing this but i think it really SUCKS shame on you youtube your turning into a school bully who exstort dinner money out of the poor kids
Hi Michelle ~ While I do appreciate youtube.com's filtering for value: My video has had a "frozen" count & it just so happens to be my resume! I am not spamming, but the video went viral on my network and now I'm penalized? Please, let me know if there is any action I can take to assure that I am not spamming & do need a job! My account is journeyinthenow and my email is firstname.lastname@example.org ~ Many thanks!!!
