Live view count cuts in half then returns to normal every thirty minutes? 0 Recommended Answers 10 Replies 31 Upvotes

My live view count for the last 24 hours has been suddenly dropping by about half, and then returning to normal about thirty minutes later. This seems to repeat itself every thirty minutes. Is this an issue with the view count backend?

Here's the view count when it's normal:


Here's the view count when it's cut in half for the last 24 hours, screenshot taken about 15 minutes after taking the one above:


Again, it alternates between showing the high count and the low count every thirty minutes or so. What's going on?

Thanks!

Interesting. Myself and others are experiencing a permanent 50-60% cut in views from the realtime counter since yesterday 8/6 at 3pm EST or so. Mine hasn't reverted or anything. I'm hoping this is all just a big bug.

I commented about this issue earlier today, so you're definitely not alone. Unfortunately, I haven't seen any improvement on my end. I've been trying to follow comments on Twitter directed at TeamYouTube about the problem but haven't seen any responses from them yet indicating that they are going to look into this.

Actually, I just found a tweet from TeamYouTube posted at about 1:00 CST indicating that they are looking into this. Fingers crossed!

I have the same problem, but my views per hour stay lower than before and it doesn't seem to go up after a while, do your views per hour go back to normal after some time?

My real time count dropped significantly last night, there must be a major bug.

Same issue here, and yesterday's analytics (not real time) show a decline as well, showing 34.000 views for yesterday while socialblade shows 45.000 which is about the average for me for the last week.
I've also noticed with a few redditors that the view count in the video page itself is about double or sometimes triple that of the real time.
It looks like it's a bug, hopefully it'll be fixed soon!

My views recovered from Tuesday, but yesterday is still screwed up.  It's showing me at 19k views when in reality, I had around 38k views shown by socialblade.
