    So I was thinking of uploading my playthroughs in bulk on one day instead of just uploading day by day for gaming playthroughs. I feel like uploading day by day would just annoy a user's subscription feed where as if I upload in all the videos on one day and then wait a week or two for another upload.

    Any thoughts? I already have like over 20 videos prerecorded. They are NOT LP's (meaning I have to edit and voiceover them) just regular playthrough of a stage or a boss in a game.

    All depends on what type of channel you want to be. If your bread and butter videos are let's plays then you should definitely be uploading daily. Uploading all in one go may also really hurt the views, any subs you have are more likely to watch each video as it comes out rather than 20 in one go.

    Personally, I wouldn't do it, but if you think it will suit your channel then go for it!

    I would suggest only uploading one or two videos a day, no more. I'd imagine view count will suffer a little if you upload a bulk of videos in one day and believe this would be more annoying to the subscriber than uploading daily. You can always try it for a period of time and see if it works for you.

    I think it is a bad idea. It will annoy subscribers the day it is released and they will forget about you between uploads.

    Don't do it. I'm not gonna say 'I think that's a bad idea' or 'I don't recommend doing it' because I want you to see that it's really going to hurt your channel. For one, no one's going to want to subscribe to you. There's an option to hit the bell for notifications, and if I was subbed to someone and saw 20 notifications out of nowhere from the same channel, I'd be pretty p****d. And then for the people who aren't annoyed with you, they're going to feel overwhelmed being shown 20 videos in a day. They'll probably procrastinate watching and some will even forget you uploaded. Since you already have a lot of pre-recorded, I'd just upload 1-2 times a day. It's not unusual for gaming channels to double upload. But keep in mind your audience's viewing patterns.

    Sigh...it honestly really doesn't matter whether or not I upload in bulk or on a daily basis. None of that matters if you don't have the subscriber base for it. If I had like 76K THEN that is when the daily uploading would become appealing. Although, since I don't even have 1,000 subs despite being on here for over 2 years it really doesn't matter in the long run. :/

    I mean I've done the upload daily and the bulk playlist as well though both of them didn't really garnish anymore views than the other.
    I honestly don't think it would matter. Although, I DO think I should focus more on single uploads a week that will gather a ton of views before I build the audience up for my non-LP videos.

    I'd personally go for 1 maybe 2 a day...if I saw a channel upload that many at once, I'd unsub and no chance I'd watch more than 1
