    How long does the video need to be watched to qualify as a video view? Id like to build a video view automation service, but id like to get some hints on artificially boosting video views.

    Thanks for the tips!

    Assuming your talking about youtube, if someone loads the page it counts a view

    Are you sure the video does not need to be 'watched' for a certain amount of time? I thought I read a post somewhere that 1/4th of the video needs to be watched in order to qualify as a view. Can anyone comment on this?

    no, go upload a new video and refresh the page over and over, the count will go up, sometimes YT's servers take a bit to update but the views do in fact go up, you can only do 200 views at most per ip per 48 hours per video... thats alot of pers lol...

    I am certain there is no relationship to time spent watching the video and it counting a view
