    YouTubs own analytics tool appears to be able to analyse things down to which "day" is best (using the filter "last week", you can see what day had the most views), but it doesn't break it down to the "hour". As mentioned, the TubeBuddy tool helps analyse your traffic and determines your best day and time of the week to upload based on when you get the most traffic to your videos. I feel TubeBuddy is sort of a required tool if you're serious about looking for ways to optimize your channel in ways other than looking at your content itself. I always post on Sundays because I work on my videos Fridays/Saturdays and that's working for me fine. Nevertheless, TubeBuddy suggested to me that I should be posting Thursdays at 4pm. Go figure :)

    I've heard someone suggest that Friday afternoon is the best time to post videos. Picture this: You're tired from your work week, you probably had a liquid lunch (2 beers), and now you're just looking for cat videos to get to 5pm so you can fast-exit the office and head home for the weekend. Seems legit.

    I do it monday, as it seems less popular.
    If everyone posts at the most popular times, competition increases.

    you can use the YouTube analytics to help determine your highest view times and schedule to post at this time. Really in my opinion it doesn't matter you should just post when you are uploaded, unless its something that is time sensitive.
