A neat YouTube trick...

I have no idea if this even belongs here, but here it must stay.

Anyways, I wouldn't call this a hack its just a cool YouTube trick, Its a way to get up near 300 views every four-six hours seeing as YouTube will ban the same i.p. as counting as a view after 300-400 views for 4-6 hours. Well now I bet you guessed how I did it, I used Python to open up a YouTube page then sleeping for 5 seconds until it is open 10 times. Then sleeping again for 30 seconds, and repeating. I have not yet released the code yet for fear that with such a new up coming noob population, some skiddie will come along and steal this and rep up his retarded video on how he is a "L33t h4(kz0r". So i'm simply explaining it and anyone with some common sense can understand it (hopefully). With hopes that i get some general feedback, and if people want I can pm the code.

1. I made my first program do;
1. Open YouTube page
2. Sleep for ~5 seconds
3. Repeats until its done so 9 times
4. Sleeps ~40 seconds
5. Opens second program

2. Second program;
1-4 Same as the first
5. Opens first program

3. Third program
An auto clicker that every five seconds initiates a "Mouse_Click" event so that the newly opened tabs will close

Notes- At first I had trouble with the while statements, making it go until it hit 10 browsers then sleeping, but then a came up with the solution noted above. I'm positive there is a simpler way to do this, but i thought it was pretty ingenious my way :D Anywho hope for some feedback, be willing to send code to people with OVER 50 posts :)

Thanks!

A few things:
  • Do you really think it was a unique idea to make a bot to view a youtube video? Get real, son.
  • That seems quite inefficient. Won't just viewing the page increase view count? Do you really need to open it in a browser?
  • Only releasing it to people with 50+ views is stupid. Do you really care if someone uses it to get a few hundred views on their videos? Pretending you're not still one of the "new up coming noob population" is also stupid.
  • Good initiative with actually coding something, though. That's a start. +1 for that, but -1 for unwarranted elitism.

Well I appoligize on not impressing you, and yes that is my i guess you could call beta test. And i guess you don't but hey, i'm proud that I got my own original code down that worked, i have about 99% done of my *quote* update *quote*. And i do code extremely often, i just got excited because i figured this out on my own w/ any help. Next time i'll keep it to myself. :ugeek:


EDIT:

Oh and thanks for the help

God dammit sanddbox, stop taking the thoughts out of my head.
Assume that everything I say is or could be a lie.

Now, implement this code into a pirated copy of an OS, put up a torrent, get 50K downloads, and have each one of those people also running the script for your video.

centip3de, I'd like to take a look at your code. I use Python and am always interested to see others methods. Isn't it a good feeling when you set out to do something and you accomplish it?
