    How does YouTube count a legitimate view? Must the video be watched entirely? Volume at max? etc?

    I think it's until the AD appears - 10 seconds, although I have no reasonable explanation for that.

    It may also depend on the length of the video - say 10-20%

    hmm... I'll let you know my findings. I'm co-developing a viewer app so we'll see how it goes. :)

    i dont think the amount of time matters in a view rather just the unique ip and no proxy
