    Forgive me if I sound naive but

    Embeded videos with autoplay don`t count as views
    iFrame videos with autoplay don`t counts views

    I was wondering if there is a way I could make something like this happen:
    1)I create a thread in forum
    2)When people enter the thread, they not only enter the thread but a new tab or new window to a YouTube video pops up as well.

    I figure this will gurantee views as they are watching it on YouTube.
    Is it possible to make such a thing happen?

    It's very possible if you own the forum. It's hard to do without that.
    But, you could simply have a link to the video within a thread and people can go and click it on their own and if they watch, you get views.
