There's *2 REASONS* why this happens to ANY popular video. Well a 3rd if you count manipulation, which I'm sure, does happen at times, let's be
clear on that and it may be the case here!
Most conspiracy videos are too busy rolling credits and giving accolades during the last few seconds of the vid, by which time the vid is stopped by
the user CANCELLING the "+1" playcount variable. It is a simple script attached to the file or player that goes like this "ViewCount++". If that
video is stopped to bypass all the ego petting in the end of just about all irritating conspiracy videos these days, the counter will not move because
the player / client has not received the order. It's like ordering a pizza and before it gets there, you leave your house to get desert and the
delivery guy has come and gone by the time you get back.
People are quick to rate vids that they feel strong about, too, as well as comment before the vid completes!
Another is that the video is being pounded so hard that it locks up the CAT(alog) file, the file used as a simple tally keeper. This causes lags due
to the file being constantly locked for editing and held in memory before it gets a chance to properly write an update for the file. Until the video
trends properly and is viewed less, this will typically be a problem. Like going to a concert, writing a review but since you left early you can't
write about what it is they all really want to know! What was the encore song?!
My friend does beauty videos that are quite popular and she has the same problem with hers even though no towers fell in her vids!~ LOL!
Oh and to anyone reading this?!?!?!?!? I do have to vent...
***STOP THE ANNOTATIONS AND SUBTITLES ALREADY!!!!!!!! SPEAK OR SHUT UP! If I see another streaming text video I'm going to go POSTAL! Though include
a subtitle over the voice track for the hearing impaired, sure.
But if we wanted to read a video that bad, we would read your lame blogs!
***Lay off the theme songs (Let the bodies hit the floor! Let the bodies hit the floor! Come on... Really?), logos and "coolness". Sure, post a link
to your site or even insert a little url or something but keep it out of our faces! Everyone has movie maker and knows how you do it. You are NOT CNN
and NO ONE cares who you are. They are just looking for content! Let the info flow freely without credit and more credit will come, believe me! Do it
for the good not the recognition. Again, NO ONE cares who you are! They only care about the matter at hand and if you educate them enough they will
FIND you and be VERY VERY loyal. Jeesh!
Sorry guys, but this had to be said. I'm in the broadcasting industry and know! We regularly chuckle at the CHRISTMAS TREES people make with all
their logos and flashy pointlessness. It's like a retaining wall in Brooklyn that every dude with a spray paint can has tagged. Try and pick out any
On the other hand the Charlie Sheen video was good and has probably vindicated Alex's bad judgment and over excitement!!! A brush with greatness and
lionic courage can do that to the most reserved of us.
