    My views stopped increasing about a week and a half ago, and the counter hasn't moved. I saw that youtube had some problems, but others have started to see their view counts go up again. I'm not even using any shady methods of getting views. Also, my view count is not at the typical 300 views where most videos freeze. My counter is frozen at almost 13,000 views.

    Mine was frozen until yesterday when it unfroze and gave me around 800 views. It's now however frozen again.

    I have literally hundreds of videos and I keep a very close eye on their view counts. What is happening at the moment is somewhat bizarre. As djlobo correctly indicated, this is a problem on the YT side (which they have acknowledged) but here's what I don't get:

    I had one video that froze for almost 48 hours; no movement at all. Then it surged with thousands of additional views. Froze again for another day or so. Another surge. lol.

    The best I can figure is that they're trying to work out these bugs and as they "restart the system", the cached views update periodically (?)

    But...you're not alone. I think we're all experiencing this to some degree regardless of where the views are coming from (BH or WH methods).

    Nothing is counting at all for me. I have been watching a number of videos view counts...and none have moved a bit in the last two weeks.

    They are coming legitly. I used some view increasers before, but that was months ago. My friend's video has been stuck at 2,132 for 2 weeks also, and he does not use any view increaser.

    Just an update to this thread. After over two weeks of being stuck at 12,486 my view counter finally moved...jumped up to 13,193. I'm really glad as I was beginning to think it would be stuck permanently.
