I do not make any money from my videos at YouTube, I am just an artist sharing my work. I recently posted this at a community board at YouTube
I am wondering, since it's only one of my videos that has a view count frozen at 201, if it's because after I uploaded the video I sent links to all my friends through my private email (rather than YouTube's service since some people had complained about their addresses used for spam by YouTube).
If I sent a link to that video, which is a small 'dance/art film' piece of work to 50 people in Toronto, where I live, and they all dropped by to view it, would that appear as spammers?
Which they most definitely are not.
I spent some time writing and editing the comment in the editorial, and I've posted that video quite a few places and hence have started the viewer on it myself a number of times each time I go in to grab the code.
Meaning, is either of these two possibilities- a number of views in a short time span in one location, the city I live in, or personally going in to the site and starting the viewer each time -why that particular video's view counts has been inexplicably 'frozen'?
Or have I been targeted by actual spammers, and YouTube just hasn't informed me that my work has been hit by that kind of attack?
I'd personally like more information on what is going on with the frozen view count - re: telling us exactly what it is that's caused the lock down.
Oh, the video in question is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6Fgg1mx2sA&feature=channel_page
Can anyone at YouTube tell me exactly what the infringement on thisparticular video is? What exactly has caused the frozen view counts?
_____Also, I earlier posted this query
Besides the view count issue that I'm currently having with YouTube, and that hasn't been addressed, or even acknowledged, I am wondering why this site is able to post one of my videos when I have DIS-enabled embedding? Why is YouTube allowing this?http://video.baamboo.com/watch/1/video/nOlfVVwa5BE/phim-video-clip-On-Butoh-based-Dance-A-Saturday-morning-amble-Brenda-.html
I am not happy with YouTube presently.
Problems. No response. Equals Unhappy YouTuber!Addendum: YouTube suddenly released the view count on my video today, March 19th, 4 days later, without any explanation.
Addendum 2: YouTube froze the view count at 307 views on the same video, White, for 4 days about mid-April, and then resumed without explanation.
Why is YouTube picking on this small video?
