Youtube shooting its own feet

Not sure if this is related to the T-related media war, youtube has disabled search by rating or by view count. (some commentators say it is about artificial view counts of those scientology mockers, others said it is the big "do evil" google strategy of controlling the way we search with their critera, i.e."relevance" )


But here are the temporary fixes, as youtube will soon close these loopholes. Longer term fix should be to bring competition to youtube, tudou/etc are well positioned to take this role, unfortunately the PRC censorship means they have to forgo this golden opportunity.



  • 1) ***MOST VIEWED****
    To Search by MOST VIEWED, SAVE THIS BOOKMARK and REPLACE the word "KEYWORDS" with your search term (i have inserted a 'return' to make them appear on the blog:
    http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=[KEYWORDS]
    &search_sort=video_most_viewed

    2) ***BY DATE ADDED/MOST RECENT****
    To Search by DATE ADDED, SAVE THIS BOOKMARK, and REPLACE THE WORD "KEYWORDS" with your search term:
    http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=[KEYWORDS]
    &search_sort=video_date_uploaded

    3) ***BY VIEW COUNT****(diff than most viewed)
    To Search by VIEW COUNT, SAVE THIS BOOKMARK, and REPLACE the word "KEYWORDS" with your search term:
    http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=[KEYWORDS]
    &search_sort=video_view_count
