    Doing a lot of testing and had a working method for YT views as of about 3 days a go..

    Basically I'm moving on from that and wondering what is the key request or part of a request in Wireshark that tells me a view has been counted by Youtube when viewing from an RTSP link...

    I'm not asking for any method here! Just wondering if someone can shed some light on what exactly is telling me a view has been counted (or should be, as obviously YT filtering happens). Just so I'm not wasting time...

    I'll happily sort someone out with a bot if I get something working..

    Absolutely no way I'm posting anything on here though

    If you would rather not tell the entire world.. PM me

    Safe

    I cant think of a way to tell if the view has been counted or filtered out. Thats something that happens on youtubes servers. You just have to wait it out.

    The problem is there's no direct response from the server saying the view count. YouTube just hoards the views then they verify then once that's complete they update the counter accordingly. So you could send hundreds of millions of packets to the view server and receive an OK response back, but YouTube might only decide that a single view from that was legitimate and then update it accordingly.



    TL;DR YouTube servers don't actually respond back saying if the view counted or not so it's not something one can see in Wireshark. You can though if the server timed out or sent an OK response back in Wireshark which can help a lot.

    Views count are completely server side. Unless you know someone working for google, theres no way to find if the view was accepted or not.

    I find it funny how the TL;DR is almost same amount of words as the original...which goes against TL;DR...
    YouTube analytics has updated for mobile views also, they now have "Unique Views" info, so they can tell if the views are unique or not.
    Example of this: http://gyazo.com/91c4301e888f264eef6bc6f3b204a281

    Nope, it has always been like that (at least I've always been able to see if they where unique)... I don't even think they track unique views on RTSP.

    Has it? I've never seen it on mobile views before, but that must be what their doing. Allowing only certain amount of views per IP.

    Yeah it defiantly has, for instance I've got a video from February that I blasted and not a single mobile view is unique not even 1, because they don't record if it is unique. And the same goes for videos blasted a few weeks ago.

    I'm pretty sure they determine wether or not it's unique by basing it on the cookies (VISITOR_LIVE_INFO). When the html5 mobile views was working, on one video i got:
    300000 views
    150000 unique views

    The reason why the unique views was half of the entire views, was because i had a glitch in the bot which would send the initial stat ping twice (instead of an initial ping + retention pings), thus it would of had the same VISITOR_LIVE_INFO cookie (which would of made the retention ping looks like a complete new view but from the same person).

    I agree, the VISITOR_LIVE_INFO gets a new value at some point during the page loading and doesnt change again until you clear cookies. Figuring out how that value is calculated would be nice. Ive tried random strings there but no difference to the amount of views that will count as far as i can tell.
