Automating Youtube views

Purpose

Youtube’s algorithm boosts videos that are in view. Therefore you may want to constantly keep your videos in watch to get even more views. Alternatively, automating youtube views is a pretty fun project.

Tech Stack

The technology used is quite simple. I will be using primarily Nodejs and PuppeteerJS as I would like to emulate a human viewer as close as possible. Using PuppeteerJS encapsulates most of the complexity.
