If you’re having trouble watching videos on YouTube right now, you’re not alone – our team is aware of the issue and working on a fix. We’ll follow up here with any updates.
We are aware that many of you are having issues accessing YouTube right now – our team is aware and looking into it. We'll update you here as soon as we have more news.
@MoistCr1TiKaL Update: we’re not going to die on this hill. You were right – after (even further) review, your video & others are back up and these strikes have been removed. This was an over-enforcement of our policies, especially w/ the added context/commentary as you originally pointed out.
@ratoborrachudo Olá, queríamos voltar aqui para confirmar que os avisos foram retirados pelo detentor dos direitos autorais. Se precisar de ajuda com mais alguma coisa, estamos aqui!
...And we’re back – we’re so sorry for the interruption. This is fixed across all devices & YouTube services, thanks for being patient with us ❤️ twitter.com/TeamYouTube/st…..
@NATIONPRIDEBTS Thanks for clarifying – streaming on the YT app while on another app doesn't affect views of the video.
Hope this helps!
@rosejvier It’s normal for the view count to fluctuate. It can slow down or freeze as we check if they're real (from humans not computer programs).
More about this here: yt.be/help/Jgao..
@ErickSantosSP @YouTubeBrasil @RicardoNauts Com as denúncias de usuários, tomamos conhecimento de conteúdos no Canal XBOX Mil Grau que violam nossas políticas. Os vídeos foram removidos e o canal está permanentemente suspenso do Programa de Parcerias do YouTube.
Update -- We’re back up and running! You should be able to access YouTube again and enjoy videos as normal twitter.com/TeamYouTube/st…..
@yoongiftsehun You seem to be using a 3rd-party tool – since we don't see the same data on the YouTube reporting side, we can’t confirm its accuracy or how/why it’s showing this. Learn more about how views are counted here: yt.be/help/Jgao..
@ivicky4_ Thanks for the tag – YouTube doesn’t allow anything that artificially increases the number of views, likes, comments, or other metrics through the use of 3rd-party softwares. Here's a Help Center article for your reference: yt.be/help/Fv4A... Hope this helps clarify.
@SoyFedelobo Hola Fede, por supuesto que te ayudamos. Si no te importa, nos gustaría seguir la conversación por DM. Para ello síguenos en Twitter y avísanos cuando lo hayas hecho, por favor. Estamos atentos, saludos.
With fewer people to review content, our automated systems will be stepping in to keep YouTube safe. More videos will be removed than normal during this time, including content that does not violate our Community Guidelines.
We know this will be hard for all of you.
@peterjordan100 Olá, Peter. Lamentamos que esteja passando por isso. Pedimos que nos siga aqui no Twitter, e nos avise quando o tiver feito, para que possamos continuar essa conversa via DM. Ficaremos aguardando.
@GeorgeNotFound Sorry to hear about this – mind sharing your channel URL so we can take a closer look? We'll wait for it.
@KEEMSTAR Hey Keem, thanks for flagging – we’ve terminated the account for violating our policies, so these ads will no longer run too.
@RicFazeres Oi, Ric. Lamentamos que esteja passando por isso. Gostaríamos de obter algumas informações sobre essa situação. Poderia seguir a nossa página para que possamos enviar uma DM? Nos avise assim que o fizer.
@RyanIsDizzy The team is working on it, so we're hoping so!! We'll follow up here as soon as we have more info.
@JOONSHMELLO Thanks for reaching out– reporting comments doesn't affect the view count of a video. To learn more on how views are counted, check here: yt.be/help/Jgao... Let us know if you have further q's.
@jkmin97 When you have a subscription, you can use background play where you can watch & use other apps on your mobile device at the same time. That will still be counted on the content's views, just like when you're regularly streaming a video. Hope this helps clarify.
As COVID-19 evolves, we’re doing our best to support those who watch, create, & make a living on YouTube. Many of us here & in our extended workforce are unable to work as usual, so we’re reducing staffing in certain offices, causing some disruptions → yt.be/help/djUN..
