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
      2018-02-01 21_57_17-
    • 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!

Give love to Bobby’s Beautiful MVs

Along with the phenomenal solo album, Love and Fall, yesterday Kim Bobby recently dropped two beautiful MVs for his title tracks I love you and Runaway.

I love you is deceptively cheerful song with a breezy, summery MV although it sings about the end of love.

Filmed in L.A, the MV is bursting with color and Bobby charms irresistibly with boyfriend cuteness.

There is also some serious rapping going on where Bobby showcases his different flows, accompanied by images of Bobby bopping and dancing before camera, displaying his natural movement and charisma.

I love you  – lyrics (translation credit Genius.com)

 We shared a life that wasn’t short
Our hearts matured
Rather than lovers, we were like family
Now whatever we do, feels like we already did it

Now our answers have become short
Feeling the difference in the weight of our hearts
Our silence forecasts the end
On our lukewarm night

You had high expectations
And I was really tired
Would we be different
If we understood each other a little more?

When you have to try in love
That already means it’s not love
With love without the butterflies
Only attachment remains

I love you
Still (girl)
I love you
I’m still in love with you girl
I’m still in love with you
(Yeh ye ye ye)

We lived our own lives
And on our way to each other
We already ran out of breath
Even though we missed each other
When we see each other, we’re busy grinding our teeth
You flip over your phone and you’re getting a call
Who is it? Why aren’t you picking up?
Then you say it’s nobody and just like that
Another secret forms

Worries seem like doubt
What if’s become reality, we’re both obsessing
No strength to talk out the misunderstandings
Just saying sorry
Before we noticed, we slowly grew apart
Because of that, we need to shout at each other now
In order for each other to hear
God girl, what do we do?

When you have to try in love
That already means it’s not love
With love without the butterflies
Only attachment remains

I love you
Still (girl)
I love you
I’m still in love with you girl
I’m still in love with you
(Yeh ye ye ye)

We still have a little bit of attachment
For each other so
I just wanna leave it like this
Beautifully

If this heart break is foolish
I’ll endure it for love
Because you used to only know me
Because I used to only know you

When you have to try in love
That already means it’s not love
With love without the butterflies
Only attachment remains

I love you
Good bye my love good bye
Good bye my love good bye
Good bye my love good bye
Good bye good bye

Good bye my love good bye
Good bye my love good bye
Good bye my love good bye
Good bye good bye

The second MV for the song Runaway was filmed a year ago and shows a more intimate story.

A more subdued, darker MV, it packs a strong emotional punch much like the song itself and the music style is reminiscent of old school hiphop .

Runaway is a song  about loosing yourself when burdened by responsibilities and life and finding balance between growing up and compromising and maintaining that childhood dream, of finding your new grown up self.

Runaway – lyrics (translation credit – Genius.com)

I wanna runaway
I wanna runaway
I wanna runaway

I’m tired of everything now
So I get mad at the smallest things
I’m on my way home alone and it’s noisy
But it’s only laughter that has nothing to do with me
So I keep my head low

I ran crazily, not knowing I became an adult
Trying to pretend I live without worries so my mom won’t get worried
When I get home, I wash up, turn off the lights and lay down
But now reality is heavier than dreams
So I can’t sleep, so I sing

In the mirror
It’s not the me I used to know
I want to chase after my dreams
But responsibility weighs down on my shoulders

If you see my swaying
Please take me away, far away
I wanna runaway
Yay ye yay ye

To a place where no one knows me
To a place where no one looks for me
Raise me up
I just can’t go on, take me away
I wanna runaway

I have a habit of thinking mistakes are failures
I don’t wanna fail so I keep stopping my efforts
Cuz I don’t wanna get hurt, I avoid new encounters
It’s better to cry alone, no need to be cautious

I lay on my bed but it doesn’t feel like home
I just wanna go far away
Even if the sun rises tomorrow, even if there’s hope
The words “good morning”
Mean nothing to me, so I sing

In the mirror
It’s not the me I used to know
I want to chase after my dreams
But responsibility weighs down on my shoulders

If you see my swaying
Please take me away, far away
I wanna runaway
Yay ye yay ye

To a place where no one knows me
To a place where no one looks for me
Raise me up
I just can’t go on, take me away
I wanna runaway

Runaway
Oh nanana

My eyes in the mirror
My feet that broke down
The man in the mirror
Keeps looking at me, strangely

It’ll be alright
At the end of this wandering
The me that I will find
Is waiting Yeh ye
Yeh ye ye

I’ve lost my way
I can’t go on, I’m too tired
Please take me away
It’s hard to breathe
Yeh ye

I’ve lost my way
Please hold my hand
I don’t know why I’m here
I wanna runaway
I wanna runaway

To a place where no one knows me
To a place where no one looks for me
Raise me up
I just can’t go on, take me away
I wanna runaway

Both MVs are finally available on youtube for viewing after being re-uploaded several times and in the process loosing almost 1 000 000 views combined.

We know this incident discouraged the fandom but we need to do our best for Bobby and his amazing work.

Bobby didn’t give up, he kept trying until he got his music to us. We should not give up either and we should double our effort to stream and make up for the lost views. So let’s stream and promote Bobby’s MV’s on your social media.
