It seems like YouTube caps views. I'm not sure if its my imagination. I average around 120,000 views a day. When I upload a new video, and it gets popular, one of my old videos will come down so I'm constantly at 120,000 views. I've been this way for a month. Like a newly uploaded video will start getting around 500 hits an hour. One of my old videos will then come down 500 hits an hour. It really does feel like I'm capped for some reason. Has anyone else noticed something similar?
