Youtube Streaming Guideline

2018-02-03 17_10_06-iKON - ‘사랑을 했다(LOVE SCENARIO)_ M_V - YouTube

Youtube streaming has always been a mystery and a hard task to accomplish, especially with Youtube getting more and more strict with the rules and improving their bots every day for more accurate and realistic statistics.

But hey, we can be smarter than the bots (for now, at least) and here’s how:

– Use all your Youtube accounts to watch, like, upvote comments, comment, reply to other comments, share, etc. Do this with the dance practices and teasers too.

– Like top comments AND new comments.

Make your own streaming playlist (yes, with each of your accounts), name it something realistic, and add multiple different videos (one Love Scenario video once after each other video). Play it in it’s entirety for around two or three hours, while logged in and on shuffle.

– Log out, stream another playlist for around three to four hours.

– If you’re using an incognito window, choose a playlist, and play it for around three or four hours.

– After all of this, change your IP address using a VPN like Hola (have in mind Hola DOES NOT work on incognito), rinse and repeat.

Some misconceptions:

  • Speed and quality of the video don’t affect your views.
  • The video can be at any volume, as long as you DON’T mute it:
    • What you can do, however, is mute the tab

    • Or mute your browser from the volume mixer

  • Skipping ads or using AdBlock while you stream doesn’t affect views.
  • Pausing, forwarding, buffering or auto quality changes don’t affect views.

The ‘overall’ trick is to make the Youtube algorithm think you’re watching multiples videos, and not trying to give one single video a lot of views.

Total views of a video reflect the number of times a video has been watched, not how many people have watched it, which is why you can give a video multiple views using the same account if you know how to trick the Youtube bot.

This guide is not 100% foolproof, bots are hard to trick and they’re very, very smart, but hopefully this will help us make our streaming as accurate and profitable as possible.

If anyone has any corrections or suggestions, please let us know and we’ll update this post accordingly. Happy streaming!
