YouTube not updating number of views
A lot of users are reporting the issue with number of views not being
updated for the last few days in YouTube Statistics software. However,
the problem is that number of the views for great number of links is
not updated on the YouTube itself. For example, for some videos that
usually have more than 30000 views per day number of views are exactly
the same as before two days. Number of likes and dislikes seem to be
reported correctly. So, we'll just have to wait for YouTube to normalize
things. Stay tuned for more information on subject...

First stable version of YouTube Statistics published.
The idea for creating this application came from
during one of my guitar lessons with him. At that time he was collecting
various YouTube videos statistics and trends. For each of the videos he
followed he entered records of views, likes and dislikes for the current
day in an excel table. As this process became very tiresome because of so
many links, he had an idea to automatize the whole process, by creating
an application which would do that for him.
So, I found that
contains all that's needed to collect statistic for YouTube
videos, and started working on this software application. After few iterations
and improvements, the application featured following functionalities:
Collecting information (name, description, number of views, likes,
dislikes) from YouTube for any valid YouTube link
- Keeping collected data in an integrated database
- Calculating differences in statistics for the requested time period
- Exporting selected data to Excel
The application is made in C# programming language on top of .Net 4.0
framework. Data is stored in an SQLServer compact database. As source code
is open and available (see
Project Space), the application
can give developers an example of the way YouTube API can be used.
