Mid-roll ads are going to get auto-enabled on all videos longer than 8 minutes.
@unfa Google, as always. Good time to move to PeerTube
@PorrurenGrabatokia Well, sadly almost nobody watches my videos on PeerTube so far, so quitting YouTube would be a suicide for my videos.
Thanks to @gcrkrause the are available on PeerTube (and also on LBRY), but I think it's more of a backup than a real alternative right now. At least that what the numbers tell me.
@unfa The other one is from an old server which is not alive anymore.
Yes, I guess Peertube cannot be accurate due to its peer to peer access to videos. The displayed number is more like an minimum.
The channel has 35 subscriptions
@gcrkrause Hmm. I wonder if this view counting can be improved - I know TouTube also has to deal with decentralization, because one central server couldn't stream all the video from YouTube worldwide. That's why the view counts update with some delay when they are numerous.
@unfa @gcrkrause # of views vs. # of subscribers could be two different arguments. When someone views a video, it could be a matter of informing the home server that a view took place. It doesn't matter who the viewer is, just that the video was viewed, so, still anonymous yet # views tracked. For subscribers, it'd be more important to track who subscribed to have an accurate count.
