This video got about 800 views just from last night until this afternoon. It's now over 8,700 views in total.
By the way, I like the idea of transferring the dedications to text at the beginning. I don't know if that helped with the views (this could just be a very popular video), but that would seem like a good idea to get started with the content as soon as possible. Another idea would be to end the video with the dedication. I say this because people have short attention spans, and many people may view our videos but click off when the first 30 seconds is just the intro clip plus dedication. If they are not viewing the message of the videos, we are not reaching them.
