I found this answer to a "How does YouTube calculate its views?" question, it sounds reallistic, although no credentials for the person writing was listed (so it might be inaccurate), also it is from July 2013 and things might've changed since then:

http://www.quora.com/How-does-YouTube-calculate-its-views

Sandhya Ramesh, I'm curious about very specific things.
196 upvotes by Jeremy Hoffman, Quora User, Vikranth Reddy, (more)
I will try to address both ways this question could be interpreted - counting total number of views and counting one view.

Counting Views:
When a video is uploaded, it is cached in the different YouTube servers spread around the globe. This is done, of course, for faster response times. Every time a request is made for a video, the closest server provides the video and increments the count in its local log. These logs are then collated at fixed times and a central log is then updated.

The 301 freeze: When a video has less than 300 views, the views are not verified. However, when views cross 300, YouTube starts verifying them to make sure that they are legitimate payback requests and not "fake" views. So you would often find that the count of a video gets stuck for a few hours or a day at 301 (sometimes 302 or 305 or 308 if multiple logs sync with the centralized server at the same instant). From this point onwards, view counts increase in batches - after every batch of new views are verified by YouTube.

An interesting technical tidbit is that when the number 300 was decided by the designers, the programmer made the elementary careless mistake of using the age old ViewCount <= 300 instead of the ViewCount < 300 in their logic.

Calculating a view:
Coming to the specifics of the question, what constitutes a view? View is a video playback that was requested by an actual user. YouTube has been extremely tight lipped about this because giving away details of even the minutest of mechanisms will cause people to "hack" the system and artificially inflate views.

However, we can make some guesses by observation. We know that fake views include misleading views - misleading titles and thumbnails that attract views. When a video has a large number of views that last for mere seconds after clicking, the views are not counted as legitimate. So if a video is viewed in its entirety by someone who clicked on it, it is counted as one view. But not all views are fully played.
Google Ad Sense works only with videos that are over 30 seconds in length so that the click through rates get registered. In fact, some videos are lucky enough to have just ten seconds of play considered as a view. We can conclude from this that the amount of video played should be above a threshold percentage of the length of the video. The type and genre of video could also be a factor. YouTube also considers views from the same IP in breaks of 6 to 8 hours. So one person viewing the same video repeatedly would only generate 3 to 5 views a day, after views cross 300. A viewer being redirected to YouTube upon clicking an embedded video counts as one view. If there is an embedded video with autoplay, it is not counted as a view. I'm quite sure there are many more restrictions and rules that go into categorizing a request as a view that we might not be aware of.

In conclusion, a view is a unique, user-initiated play of a certain secret percentage of a video that is played only by YouTube's hosting.Written 25 Jul, 2013. 29,481 views.

ADAM FANS, please check this out:
What Everyone Should Know About Why Radio Does ‘Meet and Greets’ http://requestadamlambert.com/2015/05/0 ... nd-greets/


"What radio AND the artist hope for is that LOCAL LISTENERS of the station win/show up at these “meet and greets” – that’s what is beneficial to both of them. Specifically, radio can endear itself to its LOCAL AUDIENCE and hopefully make the winners at these events loyal listeners. If someone from Los Angeles shows up to a San Diego station event, that does no good for that radio station. And it then doesn’t reflect well on Adam. Just the same way it’s better if the majority of the “winners” at these events are in the radio station’s desired age demo.

Radio may very well be using these events to see what kind of audience Adam brings to the table for their stations. If they see non-local winners and a room full of people outside of their desired demo, the reaction by the station may not be a positive one. So this isn’t an inconsequential thing at all.

Things to keep in mind when more “meet and greet” opportunities come up."

please please please take this to heart!!!! the reports from the meet n greets this week are just not good. We are so lucky that radio is giving Adam a chance this era and getting his single off to a good start...Meet and greets filled with fans who don't live in the listening area and are not part of the stations target demographic are not helpful. I am sure Adam doesn't want to see the same faces at multiple meet n greets either.

As much as it might be hard for some fans to accept this, it's the truth. Please think about Adam and the success you want him to have. If you don't fit into the demographics a radio station is looking for, save your "M&G" time for CD signings at bookstores...OR BETTER YET, THE TOUR THAT WILL HAPPEN IF THE ALBUM IS A SUCCESS.

I think the age issues should be put to rest.....

Posting once or twice is fine...most have gotten the message by now [sad.gif]

If this issue is pressed .....it will begin to turn off fans....IMO [cry.gif]

I saw a few disputes on twitter last evening [sad.gif]

I don't think Adam would like it either [Love.png]

just my 2 cents [0134.gif]

Unfortunately the AGE ISSUE IS THE ISSUE FOR RADIO! They have advertisers that are targeting specific age demo and geographic demo. Radio is interested in the audience that lives in their listening area and is specifically targeted by their advertisers as far as age is concerned. FOr POP stations the age is very young!

So, M&Gs at the radio stations are not the same as M&Gs at the concerts, or at CD signings, etc.

If we want radio to play Adam music we need to be smart and give radio what they want. If we don't we will turn radio away, which will hurt album sales, which will preclude the tour... simple, ain't it?
