I posted a video yesterday, showing instant replay of a disputed goal call. After I posted it, it said it was processing the video. Fine. I understand. Then it came up with a link to the new video page. Great. Lookin' awesome.
I went to that page, and YouTube told me it didn't exist.
I went to my user page, and YouTube didn't list the video I had just uploaded.
It finally loaded a couple hours later, and when I went to the page it told me there were seven views.
I viewed it from three different machines, anonymously, and it still told me there were seven views.
Last night, I received email telling me that people had posted comments on the video. I went to the video, and it said "7 views, 0 comments."
This morning, I got email FOUR times telling me that there were new comments on the video. The first time I checked, I was told "112 views, 0 comments." I checked three more times, and each time I was told "112 views, 0 comments."
I just checked again. Now it's showing "112 views, 2 comments." Underneath this note, three comments are visible.
The email told me there were comments from users named Jaycwik, ethermp, Ajarzian, kindup2, and Bneezy. On the page, there are comments from Jaycwik, Titan124, and ethermp.
Oops, I just refreshed the page. Now there are "112 views, 2 comments," but six comments underneath.
How can this site be such a buggy piece of squiggle? If Microsoft put out something this obviously, slap-in-the-face broken, you'd never hear the end of it. Why is Google, who now owns YouTube, getting the benefit of the doubt with broken software like this?
UPDATE (9:55 AM): Now it shows "247 views, 6 comments," with three comments showing underneath. It jumped from 112 to 247, and now it can't find all the comments.
