Youtube video count not updating

Consequently, robot views are detrimental to the experience. A video under 300 views is unlikely to have a robot inflating its view count, and so it is left to do as it will.

This saves You Tube the trouble of analyzing every video posted to the site, which would take an incredible amount of resources.

A video under 300 views is unlikely to make much money, and so is left mostly alone.

It’s this trust that You Tube fosters with the view count audit and the freeze at 301 .

With millions of users at any given time, if You Tube tried to keep track and increment view counters for every video, the processing power required would be immense.
