    Just want to know how easy it is to get banned. And if they ban you will they also ban all accounts on your IP even if those are legit accounts?

    Do you think people count their videos before get banned ?

    I think its totally depends how many people flagged your accounts, your video contents, copy infringement and all.

    Try to add some anti religion video and you will get the answer very quick ... but for that also your video must
    get noticed ... lollzz

    Your first question is tricky because it all depends on the niche (and your method). I have youtube accounts with over 5000 videos each that havent been banned. but now i upload max 1000 per account just to be safe.

    To answer your second question, YES youtube will ban all your accounts created with the same ip IF they were created within a very short amount of time. For instance, if you create only one acct per day with the same ip, you will never get mass banned. but if you create ten accounts in one day with the same ip-and one account is banned for spam- they all go down.

    youtube is very tricky. its all about your technique. i actually came up with a 'formula' (my friends call it that lol) and I rarely get account suspensions anymore (if any)

    If your video is new and you got few flagging your video will get deleted soon. If your video is old and has countable number of views, comments, thumbs up's. Then you need more people flagging to make your video down.
    Same goes to ban. If your account is new and you uploaded 10 video's and one of your video got many flag. There is a chance all your video's get deleted. If you have old account and you uploaded video's for a a consistent long time then the video which got flag only get banned.
    Also personally i say accounts get banned because of bad/worst niche like fake downloads, sex content and unnatural views/comments. If your video's don't fall in those things. You won't loose your account that easy.
    Its all about how old your account is and how reputable it is.

    Nobody knows an exact value simply because it depends on a large variety of factors - channel age, account standing, niche, amount of videos etc.
