Youtube video view count not updating
One of the most common metrics to inflate is the view count, because it ties into the recommendation engine and the perceived influence of a video. You can bet that You Tube has a bunch of filtering in place.Here’s what You Tube says: One thing you’ll notice here is that nothing they say is, well, specific information.In one of my sites I have thousands of visitors daily but after one year, the view count for the main video on the start page is still at only 26 views.I wanted to save load times, that's why I am providing an image with play icon on the page.
When a video hit 300 views, You Tube would freeze their view count and perform an automatic audit.This was the threshold You Tube used for their video audits.Any video under 300 views, they just didn’t care about.As soon as the icon gets clicked, I load the youtube iframe via: Views that originate as a result of clicking on one of the native player UI elements (either the play button in the control bar or on the static player image) will normally count towards incrementing the views for a video. Because I embed the iframe with autoplay true, so there is no click event.Would be a workaround to do a replace Width and then do a trigger('click')?
