In order to slow down the delay time between requesting the video and viewing it, videos are cached in different places.In other words, your video might be cached in the UK, the United States, Africa and Australia, so that when someone in Ireland watches a video uploaded in California, they don’t have to wait for the video to be requested and transmitted to another country. So, for instance, let’s say your video is requested from central Europe.
So now you know why your views are stuck; hold tight and your counts will reflect accurately soon.
Type the question “Why is my You Tube view count frozen?
There are some ways that clever techies can essentially trick the counter into thinking there are more views, and of course, someone can watch their own video over and over to try to raise it if they aren’t logged in.
Since validity and security is a priority at You Tube, they set up a system that freezes counts at 301 until the validity of those views can be verified.
To make sure that all views are validated, as view count goes higher, they update less frequently and might occasionally freeze above 300 views to assure quality view count. But very few uploaders probably make it to the Google support page explaining the process, and more most likely submit “frozen view count” questions to whatever Contact Us form or You Tube email address they can find.
You Tube has, apparently, grown tired of answering those questions.
According to the site: Video views are algorithmically validated to be fair to both content creators and advertisers and maintain a positive user experience.
This process assures that the video views are quality views and discards the low quality playbacks.
It’s rather broad as definitions go, but it’s what they describe a view as.
