YouTube is all about making short videos, posting them online, and sharing them online with all your friends. Its difficult as a YouTube Director to keep track of your videos, especially when you get more than a few dozen. Trying to find your most popular video, or highest rated video can be a challenge!
ViewTracker is a widget, currently designed for Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger and higher. Its mission is simple, display your top videos sorted by highest view count, highest rating, last updated, and 'relevance'. (I don't know what the last one is either). It constantly updates with YouTube servers, every 15 minutes or so it will check and download your latest video list and hit counts for easy display.
Finding data you want can be hard, and displaying that data is a format you want is even harder. Feel free to give ViewTracker a try. Its free, but donations are accepted.
- Your Username needs to correspond to your YouTube username. This should correspond to your channel name, so you should be able to visit http://www.youtube.com/user/usernamehere. If you cannot visit this link we won't be able to download your stats correctly.
- View Counts are not exact, or even close sometimes. This is YouTube's fault. Not ours. YouTube has tons of servers to stream those videos to you as soon as possible, but all these servers have trouble adding up all the view counts, to fix this the data is cached so we can access it quickly, without having to wait for hundreds of servers to look if anyone is watching your videos.
- You didn't answer my question. What can I do? Shoot me an email! You can get me at firstname.lastname@example.org, try to include ViewTracker in the subject so I know whats going on. I might not get back to you right away, but I'll do my best!
