Missing Some Subscriptions?
Note: This bug has been fixed since I originally posted this.
Every one has noticed that views have been dropping on their videos lately. And most of us know the cause: YouTube no longer removes the videos you’ve watched from your subscription inbox. Meaning, unless you refresh your subscriptions inbox very frequently, day and night, you are missing some of the videos that your favorite vloggers are uploading.
I have no idea why YouTube has changed this, nor why they haven’t reverted back to the traditional way of removing videos after they’ve been watched. But here’s a tip that might help you miss fewer videos.
Most of the time, your subscription inbox only displays eight videos, as seen here:
However, notice that little, tiny, almost hidden “edit” link in the top right-hand corner?
Click it, and you are given a few options. Choose the drop-down menu marked “Number of rows to display” and choose “3″.
Now you will have three rows of your subscriptions’ videos.
This won’t guarantee that you’ll see all of the videos you’re subscribed to, but it will help you see more of them. I really hope YouTube fixes this issue soon. Until then, use this tip to see 50% more than you were before. Happy ‘Tubing!
