I was wondering a few things: a) Does a embeded video count as "viewed" for youtube b) What if i embed the video using a youtube Api / customized .swf, would this pass the radar? The goal would be to embed the video in a customized .swf with maybe an autostart thing. Then you can share the said swf across the social networks and generate views like crazy. There is some documentation here Why's that? It seems to me the only viable solution for us right now are social networks, everybody is on myspace and such.Softwares increasers are a joke. Waiting for your inputs.
