Why Do Youtube Views Freeze At 301?

  1. Well the count before 300 is real time, but after that it’s delayed. I thought just opening a video added a view, turns out Youtube can determine user’s reactions to not count it. Interesting coding quirk using the less than or equal sign than instead of stopping at 300 which was intended, it stops at 301 as a result of that inequality symbol. The higher than 301 due to views being added at the same time is interesting as well due to the nature of transmission. Good video with help from Youtube.

  2. So, if you want to use bots to boost your number of views, you just have to wait untill youtube did the 300 views half a day check, and then your probability to get caught fall drasticly, expescially using a simple backdoor on a few thousand users, and a proxy to use each mùany times. Thanks youtube 🙂

  3. So what this Google person says that the code responsible for the „301 freeze“ was made years ago, and just about past year we started to notice it, why doesn’t Google change this „freeze barrier“ to a higher number (lets say 800 or 1000). Since Youtube has grown quite a bit the past few years, this little change would make the freezes way less annoying because it would be less noticeable.

  4. People are stupid, they think that being the top ten is special, but they ruin the point of commenting. Don’t even bother saying anything because everyone does it. I think it is stupid and people shouldn’t comment on a video unless they have something to say about it, not to count the comments for them, youtube does that already >:x

  5. I know today’s the 1st of July 2012, your comment is reported as being posted less than an hour ago, and the videos history says there were already 8,547 views past June 25th.

    So… you’re lying.

  6. Actually, I think I misread the stats. The 8,5K views were on June 25th alone. There were over 100K views before that already. I also misread your comment. You’re not actually claiming to be the 301st viewer =P

  7. thats incorrect. the decimal counting system (system based on factors of ten) is actually fairly young compared to other counting systems. It was a revolutionary idea that stemmed from the invention of zero in india. It was created to aid in trade but quickly grew in popularity to outcompete other systems like the roman system based in 5. There is even one system in south america that is in factors of 6 and 20. the world of numbers is odd indeed

  8. The old layout was a complete clusterfuck. It showed a bunch of old updates and pointless bullshit, making it hard to spot new uploads from your subscriptions. With the new layout, I can just click „show uploads only“ and all the new videos get shown in chronological order. It is a bit glitchy right now, but it works a whole lot better than the old one.

  9. The old layout was awesome.

    Channel description on the left. Video player on the right. Video description under that. Comments under that.

  10. my views have frozen for the last 3 days. Why? I have over half a million views and get lots of views ever day.I have been a member for over 5 years. Any help appreciated.

  11. I was picturing: if (counter greaterthan 300), verify counter. This would produce a freeze at 301, too. I tend to avoid using greater equal and less equal. Just a quirk I’ve noticed in my code.

  12. That’s not what I got from the video. What the rep. said was that views are a currency and that they need to be verified when their numbers get „serious“. Their „serious“ is above 300, and afterwards, if views are still piling up quickly, they are added through increments.
    The reason it gets stuck at 301 is because the process has just started. Later you have things going on and the number increasing from previous batches or just less views at a time.

  13. I think they should take in to consideration reviewing likes and dislikes because I will often get 10 or 15 dislikes in the first minute I upload a video then 1 or 2 throughout the next 6 months. That leads me to believe that a bot or something similar is disliking my video an it is frustrating! Maybe YouTube will take likes and dislikes into consideration for review someday.

  15. Ehh… not really. Neither of the two men in this video resemble Mark Hamill, at least in my opinion. Maybe the Youtube guy could be his cousin or something but… nah.

  16. so… what you’re saying is… if I spin off 100,000 ec2 instances and open up 1 youtube link per instance at the same time… it’ll be 100,000 views from the get go since they don’t use atomic counters?

  17. I love that the freeze at 301 rather than 300 is essentially the result of a programming error (albeit an unimportant one, as the choice of 300 might have been somewhat arbitrary to begin with). Anyway, great video!

  18. Hi,this is off topic but please answer me and help me if you can.The problem am facing is that no matter how many times I hit the reply button the box where I type my reply wont appear so I cant reply to any comments on any video.I tried clearing my cookies,cache..ect but it didn’t help.Also I created another account and tried to reply and it worked fine but it still doesn’t with this account.(I tried using a different PC but didnt work)

  20. Ah, okay i get it now. Oh, and if the VERY SLIM chance of somebody from the HQ of YouTube seeing this comment actually occours, PLEASE BRING BACK THE STAR RATINGS (at least as an option)

  22. I’m here because I posted a comment saying, 301 views~ 410 likes/dislikes, and somebody told me to go to this video saying, „Your Welcome.“

  23. OH MY GOD HAHAHA !!!! EVERYONE IS THERE BECAUSE OF CYPRIEN HAHA !!!!!
    Par conte non seulement c’est en anglais en plus c’est des chiffires alors pour moi c’est du charabia complet…!

  25. Ooh I’m very much interested in the extra footage for this. Still wish they would’ve picked 255 or an even 300. Makes the programmer side of me twitch.

  26. Excellent video. I have long wondered about this. I hope you do upload that extra footage. This almost seems like it could be a direction for a new channel: new technologies, computer hardware and software explained, how the internet works, data encryption and security. These are all things which the majority of people use but know little about. But, maybe you keep yourself busy enough as it is. Thanks for all the great videos and keep up the good work, Brady. 🙂

  27. I would really like to know what constitutes a view. That sounds really interesting. Any idea when you’re planning on uploading that footage? Because it’s been a month…

  28. ohhhhh….. I GET IT! Views are like views are like sperm heading toward a women’s egg at 299 views there can only be one more view (or sperm) and a lot of views (or sperm) are sent to that data base (or egg) at once yet only one makes it. Although in some cases multiple sperm hits the egg at ounce thus creating a slight over flow of views.

  29. my video has been up for more than six years and has reached a count of more than 913k but the counter has now stopped.
    I know people are still finding it and clicking on it, and I was hoping to reach 1 Million something doesn’t seem right.

  30. I made a popular video. The view count froze at 304,001. I have a screenshot of it. Maybe the formula works like this: if the view count is 3,6,9, or any other multiple of 3, and the order of magnitude of the count is (n*multiple of three) greater than the order of magnitude of the 301 in the original code, the displayed views freeze. 304,001=(301x(10^3))+(3*(10^3))+1. I do not know if I explained that correctly, but the math checks out. -Tim

  31. In Killzone 2 (and probably every other score-based multiplayer game in existence), you get people who play on two PS3s with two accounts, with one account killing the other. This means that he gains higher levels much faster than others.

    The point of buying these games is to enjoy killing your friends. If you’re so heart-struck on getting higher levels that you damn yourself to hours of endless boredom, then what’s the point? Same can be said about people who counterfeit views on YouTube.

  32. 俺の動画を301再生回数を初心者でも簡単な方法が有ります。
    例えば・・
    自分の動画のコメントを自分の動画のコメントに3000以上
    増やす事です。
    そして301再生回数を増やす方法は・・自分の動画を非公開にし
    新しいタブに後で見るを選択し後は放置するのみ
    そして301再生回数になった事を確認し後は一般公開し
    動画を公開するだけです。

  33. They did just watch the movie 300 and somebody asked what number we should take and somebody talked about the movie and somebody asked which movie it is and he shouted 300! 😀

  34. Then why do thumbnail titties still have millions of views? You’d think that if a video has millions of views and is almost completely thumbed down (or if the person is wussy, has the ratings and comments disabled), somebody would realize it.

  35. My videos have all stopped counting over a month ago ~ Anyone know why ?
    Also when I try to reply to coments people posted on my videos NOTHING HAPPENS -Why?
    Please help or give advice ! ! !
    Thank You anybody ! ! !

  36. I have a question, whenever the views are counted again… whenever you see the view count is your view added to the count or is it showing you the number of views right before you watched the video?

  37. Seems reasonable. Having the formula as less than or equal to 300 hundred rather than just less than 300 is just an awkward natural substantial count.

  38. I don’t think the goto statements are literally goto statements. He was probably just watering down the logic explanation so non-programmers can understand the logic and whats going on.

  39. Because there is no lock at a specific number for the like/dislike bar. So when a video has reached those 301 views and closes the view counter, people can still watch it and like the video but the views are just not gonna change.

  40. I was on this video earlier and it had 301 views and 2500 likes, why does it do that? I watched the video butt I still don’t get why it has more likes than views. Its impposibru, right?

  41. here comes the yognauts… Now there’s gonna be so many comments like „more tech vids“ and „give us viral numbers and equations“ because that is all that goes on over at the yogscast vids.

  42. DUDE THEY use this tool to put up what they want not what we want or have viewed the most or liked the most if the problem is the source code fix it write a new one but allow people to keep their views and stop making videos bad or a whole users page gets shut down they say over copy write think about it youtube from you for you by you! who care who puts out what screw these adds and all the other control mechanisms they put in
