Ours wasn't viewed by anyone other than my cofounders and I. I take that as an indication that we're not in the running for an interview. If you do get a view, at least you know there's some interest from YC. I suppose it's possible that some applications are good enough that the founders forgo watching the video in the interest of time, but it's unlikely.
Good luck to everyone. Looking forward to seeing the next batch of YC companies.
We should update these posts with the results to see if there is a strong relationship between the number of views > 0 sec and a invitation to interview. I'm sure future applicants would appreciate it (or re-applicants...)
Team video: one 0 minute CA view (auto embed?) on the 2nd then one full view from CA the next day.
Demo video: unsure, I shared the link with a few people in CA so that messed up those numbers. However, no actual views (time > 0) on the same day the team video was viewed for a minute. Again, a 0 minute view on the day of submission.
We've had someone in California view our team video on the 12th but I guess this is no indication of things cos they could watch the video and promptly put you in the no pile as easy as the yes. Fingers crossed and good luck to everyone.
