N.B: im a tech and work with programmers all the time. I own web servers and got some pretty complex code on these also. Code never changes and does what its made to do. A glitch ok if something was added to the code if it was modified ok I could understand. its like a chaine reaction. BUT youtube always worked fine. view count is not a new feature. for the hardware not to keep up with the demand I would strongly doubt that. all the other video were reported to work perfectly. So each view = written in the DB by increment. What could be the possibilities that tons of people would request the video at the same exact time up to milliseconds and not give the hardware enought time to add all those views in the DB. Youtube as been tested and retested by their techs exactly for this not to happen never ever ever the no4 in the world....lolol cant keep up with view counts basic sql Incrementation. (+1+1+1+1)
Im a little desapointed in humanity but thats just my thing. There is still good people out there dont get me wrong but its harder to find.
Its just unbelievable what people can say to make others believe they know what they are talking about. Not saying its impossible with out having all the technical facts but I doubt that youtube had an issue it would of reflected on the entire site and the entire server farm would of been affected. not just C.Sheen video lolol

www.aljazeera.net (portal to the arab world)

I understand the various checks for values etc, only count unique Ip's, the various possiblilities to achieve the same purpose. But the bottom line its incremented in a DB after all checks have been done, sql, txt file etc its a db anyway you want to call it. I was refering to the posts that mention that many have seen it and the view count as not changed (never said it had to be instantaneous but it shouldnt take a few days either). Its possible it as been queud for update. Whit this said Im not a programmer but a tech that works in the web biz for some time. As I mentioned with out the technical info of the moment it is a hard call but I still doubt they make basic mistakes that results in bugs. If they do, I got a great team of guys ready to patch it up for them
Just read a post under yours that suggest to add the video to other VID sites to compare view count and see if its that popular as stated. Could be intresting if anyone as time for that.
No grudge ...

I told you all day 1 this was a genius move by AJ and Charlie. This thing is going to blow up even more now with the censorship, it will only infuriate people and make them post it even more. Bad move by Yewtube, they should just ride it out and not get involved.
This whole situation is at boiling point, and everyone is showing there true colors.

Are people dense? Youtube isnt censoring it, it has been explained in my previous posts and by others. You just dont understand modern databasing environments in high traffic systems (in Youtubes case, extremely high traffic)
