Metrics

Video views: Transparency.tube records statistics for younger-than-365-days videos for all channels each day.

Note:

  • For channels with large back-catalogs, we read older videos to try and capture all the views on a day
  • When new channels are added to transparency.tube, the history of views are estimated based on the upload date of videos.

Channel Views: The total number of channel views as reported by the YouTube API.

Note:

  • More reliable than video views for channels with large backlogs (e.g. AP Archive), but less reliable for channels that have videos removed.
  • We only have data for channels since we have added them to our dataset, so we show only the latest figures.

Watch Hours: This estimate of hours of video watched is based on the data collected from this study from 2017. For each video, we calculate `*average % of video watch for this videos duration` x `video views`

Subscribers: The number of subscribers to the channel as provided by the YouTube API. Note, a small amount of channels hide this data.

Data Collection and Periods

Stats are collected each day starting at 00:00 GMT and the dates displayed are all in GMT. We decided to use a common date because this makes it easy to compare full-days that are the same for different timezones.

Classification
