YouTube has shifted its focus away from the number of "views" that a video attracts to overall "watch time". Video-makers are now encouraged to produce longer videos that keep viewers on the platform for longer.
The change explains why previously short videos, such as DIY demonstrations or "how-to" tutorials, are now often dragged out over 10 minutes or more.
