    Just thought I'd share my method for getting massive views. It will likely end up with your video getting removed, so use throwaway accts and not your own.


    First, grab the titles of all the popular videos. I wrote a script to do this:

    Code:
    #popular video title scraper
    curl -A "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.6) Gecko/20070725 Firefox/2.0.0.6" -s "http://www.youtube.com/browse?s=pop&t=t&cr=US&p=[1-5]" >> ytpop.txt
    grep id=\"video-long-title ytpop.txt | sed -e 's/.*nofollow\">//g' -e 's/<\/a>//g' | sort -u > pop
    

    Now, add the contents of pop to your video desc. You could split these between several videos for max effect.
    This alone could get you 2000 views per day until some assclown flags you cause your video was softcore pr0n and not some shitty Twilight trailer.


    20ish views a day at first, then I happened to get lucky... and unlucky in the same day:
    [​IMG]
    Conversions were decent considering my url was watermarked into the video and not linked in the info box


    Search Result Titles:
    Code:
    #search result video title scraper
    curl -A "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.6) Gecko/20070725 Firefox/2.0.0.6" -s "http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=gaming&page=[1-20]" >> ytsearch.txt
    grep id=\"video-long-title ytsearch.txt | sed -e 's/.*nofollow\">//g' -e 's/<[^<>]*>//g' -e 's/\&/\&/g' -e 's/\"/\"/g' -e "s/\'/\'/g" | sort -u
    

    In this instance I am scraping video titles that show up when I search for 'gaming'. This could help you with niche stuff.


    Just for fun, I have a script that will harvest user names for your autofrienders and etc. Use it after you've scraped search results with the above script.
    Code:
    #username harvest
    grep video-from-username ytsearch.txt | sed -e 's/.*\">//g' -e 's/<\/span>//g' -e 's/<\/a>//g' | sort -u
    

    sed ftw!

    So just to clarify

    We use the first script you gave us. To use this we place the code into our html editor then save it as .php then load it up to our server and just load up the address of where its saved and then it will spit out all of the information we need?

    Next we take this information and then place it at the top of our video descriptions and because these are the top viral videos of the day/week if you will, our videos with the "sexy" thumbnail are likely to show up in the viral videos related videos section, thus generating us lots more views, ON TOP of being able to easily get lots of views with sexy videos anyway by selecting the correct tags, titles and descriptions?

    they're shell commands for use on a linux terminal

    the rest of that is pretty much correct though

    Let me clarify the concept: you have a video of any kind uploaded on youtube, basically a video meant to drive some traffic to your site, so you scrap the titles of the most popular youtube videos and post them on your video description, not on it's title, and that's it, am I right?

    the first script does not seem to work for me it just hangs up here:


    # grep id=\"video-long-title ytpop.txt | sed -e 's/.*nofollow\">//g' -e 's/<\/a>//g' | sort -u > pop

    you have to change "browse" by "videos" in the url option of the curl command

    Code:
    http://www.youtube.com/videos?s=pop&t=t&cr=US&p=[1-5]

    I am not sure if I am missing something but this is what I did I pasted the following code:

    #search result video title scraper
    curl -A "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.6) Gecko/20070725 Firefox/2.0.0.6" -s "http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=gaming&page=[1-20]" >> ytsearch.txt

    Into the body tags and saved the file as php. I then uploaded it to my server and when I go online to that file url it gives me a 404 redirect?

    Can anyone help,

    thanks

    grep id=\"video-long-title ytsearch.txt | sed -e 's/.*nofollow\">//g' -e 's/<[^<>]*>//g' -e 's/\&/\&/g' -e 's/\"/\"/g' -e "s/\'/\'/g" | sort -u

    It's not php, it is shell script, to be executed in a linux terminal.

    All these linux tools are also available for windows, either as normal executable or with cygwin. so you don't need linux for it.

    Read this third post mate -

    Also, you know in the title of this thread mate, it says (adv, linux) I would think that meant "advanced" and "linux" so perhaps this wont be something you will be able to use?


    Perhaps however you could take the concept, and do it manually for a while, and then make some kind of Imacro?

    Concept being - Get all the titles of popular videos and add them to your video description.

    This isnt hard to do manually, and if you are asking things like "can i make this in dreamweaver" I suggest you just forget about the automation part, until you are quite happy with the actual concept, and then find your own way to automate the concept.

    msysgit is probably the easiest way to get a bash shell on your windows box
    Code:
    http://code.google.com/p/msysgit/downloads/list
    just make a tmp folder somewhere, right click and hit git bash here
