Total Number Of YouTube Views On Website

 9:14 am on Sep 1, 2012 (gmt 0)

Hi Cat:

Hey I'm looking to find a way to show the number of video views where the video is embedded. More explanation;

I'm developing a site that will benefit a certain trade. The tradesmen will basically be "sponsored" in these videos and the number of video views is important to keep them interested, while at the same time paying for the sponsorship.

Sure, I could ask them to watch the counts on my channel, but down the road it's more about who may be interested in the spot and visible view counts will be important. Check that, there are not any counts in channel view. One has to hit the actual YouTube page to see the counts which results in a view, skewing the numbers albeit very little.

Any thoughts? Your knowledge is appreciated.

you could just scrape the number straight from the YouTube page, using php
my total views are shown in the top right of my public channel page

Haven't gotten anywhere with php, probably because of my fear of the phpbb message board system. I could never figure that danged thing out and it frustrated me endlessly to the point I have someone else handling it.

Maybe I'll try again. Thanks
