    i think there's some programs out there that can auto-refresh so lets run like 5 of those per person on the next GT video.

    This is actually crazy.

    If I cared about being famous, this would be a worthwhile thing to do to generate a beautiful illusion.

    Hahaaaaaaaa!

    Nah that isn't the main problem with Worldstar.. They just flat out fake views.. You can tell because worldstar doesn't even host the videos.. They just embed them from other sites.. & while the views go up crazy on worldstar, they don't on the site the video is hosted on (youtube, google video, myspace video, etc).. & they should go up at the same rate because every play on worldstar is supposed to count as a view on the site the vid is posted on.. They got their counter set to count every view as multiple views

    & if you guys are actually wanting to do this.. Get firefox if you don't have it already.. Get a plugin called Reload Every.. Right click on the page & go to Reload Every.. Then go to custom.. Set it to reload every .5 seconds.. Just leave the tab open & it'll reload twice a second for aslong as you leave it open

    You sure about that? I'm pretty sure they don't embed videos from other sites, especially not the ones you mentioned anyway. You'd be able to see the YouTube/whatever-site player, as I don't think you can embed the videos otherwise. As far as I know, they rip the FLVs (or MP4s now with YouTube HQ) from various sites and upload that to WSHH. Notice how back in the day, the WSHH videos were bad quality. That's because they originally didn't know how to download the MP4s and just got the low quality FLVs.
