    If you are looking for a way to get subscribers here is a neat way I came up with that works.

    If someone is logged in and they go to a page like this, and click Confirm then they are subscribed to you.
    http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=YOURUSERNAME


    So here is what I did
    http://moldytoaster.com/FunnyOrDie
    I made a fake video page that says they have to click Confirm to see the video.
    But they're really clicking confirm on the youtube page, because there is an iframe hidden inside of the page. I just masked off everything else with white squares.

    I just put funny or die in the background because it is a site people trust and the kind of site that would have a warning like that.

    I've been posting the link on youtube, so the odds are people are already logged in.

    Have fun with it, let me know if you come up with a way to build off of this idea.
