The beautful thing about numbers is how they can describe reality in a way that leaves no doubt.
Talkapolis passed the 4 million views mark and at the current pace will will get to 5 million in early December.
Our views are a measure of bandwidth or partial downloads and certified by out hosting company which is a division of IBM.
As I've describe in post going back a year we measure our video audeince by ignoring web analytics which tend to greatly inflate the numbers of viewers for web pages by obfuscation. We simply measure the views when the video is clicked and a significant part of the video is downloaded.
We try to keep or videos around the five minute mark because thats the kind of viewers we have -- e.g. Facebook while standing in line at Kroger.
