Sorry you misunderstood - I meant, I want to view videos by doing a search on any subject, and then only want to view the video for that subject which has the highest viewings.  Not a channel type viewing.  E.g. truecrypt search, and then the highest view count for truecrypt

OK. After search you have this page with filters and options. Here is a image under FF:

No, what I am doing is going to google, typing truecrypt, then selecting the videos on the left side.  From there I cannot see any filters.

Also your youtube screen looks different to mine.  I dont have those links at the top nor the filter like you do.

Are you joking with me? What did you asked first - "How to rank youtube videos by "most watched"?

Of course you cannot see any filters.
First, it would be OK that you read something about Google rules:

How are videos ranked at Google

The only options that you can get are those "filters":

http://support.google.com/video/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=59690&topic=1069381&ctx=topic

So, in the Google search field you have to write - truecrypt site:youtube.com

And on the left side you will get some simply options and Filters:

 GG1

Also your youtube screen looks different to mine.  I dont have those links at the top nor the filter like you do.

You will have. Go to www.youtube.com and in the search filter write - truecrypt !

I am logged on a Youtube.com and my window looks different.

what I mean is, where you have a filter drop down list on your youtube, I dont have that on my youtube, I have it as a static filter.

>So, in the Google search field you have to write - truecrypt site:youtube.com
Yes, I have done that, but doing it this way does not allow you to sort the videos by number of views

It is not a truth. I am logged off youtube.com and you can see that:

 YOUT1
And I will search your term "truecrypt" and after searching I have and you must to have this also - Sort by: View count !!!
Here it is and you can see that I am not log in on youtube.com:

 YOUT2

So, why you have a different web page I really don't know.

And here is the trick. When I opened my IE 8 ( that I have never use for watching a youtube.com videos ) I have got an alert on Croatian - do I want to set Croatian language or chose English. I select English and I have the same page as under Firefox:

 IE
So, it seems that the problem of displaying is in correlation with a language setting.

You can check your language setting at:

Dude, I think things are getting lost in English translation!

I know the view count is under the sort by menu that I pasted.  My question was my version was different from yours and I was questioning why that was, which is why I said mine didnt looking like yours and you didnt believe me.

Anyway, back to the original question:  From what you are saying, there is no way to actually order the results by maximum viewings when I do a simple google search of the videos and select the video filter in google.  WHat you are saying is that I need to goto youtube.com and then type truecrypt and then filter it that way OR type in google search truecrypt site:youtube.com.  CORRECT?

Yes. But it is not truth that I didn't trust you. If you said that you see different youtube.com start page and I know that I haven't the same page as people in the China then I know you are right !
And the reason is not only that people from China or some other country has different language, but it is a Youtube politics.

How many times I have tried to download a files from Rapidshare and until 2 years ago in the evening was an alert - "Sorry, you are not in the group of countries that can download from our site".

But, of course at 9 PM I could download movies from that same Rapidshare!!!

I know the view count is under the sort by menu that I pasted.

You didn't say does it work when you click on "View count"?

Why you constantly ask new and new and new questions when your question was:

How to rank youtube videos by "most watched"?

I want to view youtube videos by the highest number of views or rankings.  I thought ages ago I was able to do that, but cant seem to do it now.  Any suggestions?


Sorry, but I showed you how can you select "View count" and you didn't say anything about what you did then !!!

I lose my time with a new questions while you didn't answer about a my solution for your very first question.

Sorry again, but I am already 5 hours at my PC ( 1:30 AM ) and wait for you to invent a new questions.

I can't work in a such way.

Relax, dont get so worked up after spending 5 hours on a computer.  Deep breaths and some good stretching exercises.

The reason for my other questions was because the English didnt translate well but then in hindsight as it was midnight, I could have also made my first question more clear by saying I was searching for truecrpt videos via google and wanted to filter by the highest views, rather than give the impression of talking about youtube searches.

Anway, thanks.  Remember, deep breaths, in, out, in out and sleep before 1.30am today.

Yes, you are right. But I am computer engineer, not only an freak. And I always want to help to solve the problems that arises from "bugs" in the software. That's the point.

Thank you, you're welcome.
