    I never made a tutorial before but here goes:

    Ever wanted that Field Recorder Hat? Is your videos not getting enough views? Well I have a solution for you:

    1. Make sure you already have a replay uploaded to Youtube for this to work.


    2. Find this.


    3. Copy and past http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/u...ds/kffacxfA7G4 into it. It should look like this


    4.
    Launch tf2 and claim your newly acquired hat.


    Forgive me if this is late, I found it myself.

    For most people this is way more simple and safe method not involving fishy exe's. Not everyone knows that SAM cant get you banned if used correctly. Thanks, OP.

    Quality of video =/= amount of views.

    At least most of the time.

    I did it, mostly because it's a really unfair achievement.

    The only people who could get this without cheating are the ones who were popular and watched to being with.

    I was tempted to do this when the exploit was first shown, because I made a great video that still hasn't passed 350 views.

    Then again, I already got fucked when I used DrunkenF00l's idler (yeah it's different here because I'm not messing with a .dll but it seems that Valve should be able to check this easily plus it's a hat that I'm not fond of in the first place).

    I'm really tempted, but I like to save cheating for things like idling on double drop weeks, or something to that effect.

    I got the achievement, and I have zero subscribers on my channel.

    I have 93 subscribers, I have a video with about 940 views so I would have gotten it regardless.

    Such a terrible person for getting a hat unfairly.

    Edited:

    Video version?

    I add that to the OP if you don't mind.

    Do Valve know about this? Seems a bit lazy of them, but ho hum. Free hat for those who want it, I guess.

    It actually is. There are alot of good videos in youtube that deserves views, but they only get like 50 views. Pretty unfair.

    Or a case of having a army of idiots subscribed to you/ spamming the link every fucking where.

    If you are relatively quiet on YouTube, you have little to no chance of getting this.

    Since everyone seems to post what video they used, i used a DOOM video. The "E2M1 I Sawed the Demons" song sure is good.

    I have 2 videos with over 1000 views. One with 2000 and one with 3000, it's easy you just need to have decent content and post it on sites like reddit.
