    I tried an experiment yesterday. I ran a video 10 times and watched the video nearly to the end before I refreshed it with Firefox.

    Today I checked the views and it was still the same (18).

    So I'm sorry to say but to those people who say your view count will change if you watch your own video then that is not the case, at least for me.

    I don't know shit about getting views on youtube but it's pretty obvious that they 're not going to count more than one view from one ip not to mention the cookies they dropped on you.

    Simply refreshing the video isn't going to increase your views..

    Your view count will not change when you watch your video over and over. They made it so it won't be easy to cheat. Because someone can sit there and refresh over and over to get there views up. I know a service that can boost your views if you like.

    Before 3xx views, you can refresh the video as many times as you want and it will get up to 3xx and then the view count will freeze. At this time, then YouTube starts to look more in depth at the views being sent to the video and will count only what they deem a view, which I won't go in detail about. So in short, if you video has less than 300 views, just keep refreshing the page a bunch of times, it will get to 3xx and then freeze and then after that your views will no longer count.

    yeah well my idea was to refresh them to 300 then use a view service after that but unfortunatly they have killed off even getting 300 views at least with one IP. If anyone can try it then you will see for yourself this no longer works, not even 300 views, not even 2 views....

    What I used to do was use a refresh bot and get all myvids up to 300 views. The tool stopped working though, dunno.

    The sad part is, there are social sites that can give you free views from 0-300 easily. The hard part is you buying the views from a respectable seller.

    recently LOL? probably one of the most obvious fake view checks for youtube to implement if you could just watch your own video people would just run a script refreshing the page and get millions of views.

    It seems if I use a different ISP then the views do count. It seems some ISP's are not counted when people view the vdeos.

    My guess is that because the one that did not update views is on a shared network in this apartment complex and going rhrough a router etc then it is not the same as when viewing with my USB wireless connection with dynamic IP's that does have its video views counted.

    The strange part though is that if I refresh the page on the wireless connection but not changing IP the views still go up.??

    Just sure hope for you that your video was not 15 minutes long.

    I think when your video has poor views you can't use this method to boost it but if you have a viral video or even not viral, just a video that has good audience (>5 viewers at a moment) then you can use it. Also why not try proxies?!
