    How do I get a youtube video in perl in such a way that it would be considered as played?

    I would try cURL fist, and if it's not registering when you load the video page, i would try and load the .swf file directly. you can get the path to it fairly easily.

    I haven't done this, but that's where I would start if I were doing it.

    Do you mean fetching "youtube.com/v/whatever"? It doesn't seem to work.
