Below is an interview with Gregory at SES San Jose last year.  In the interview, Greg talks about the importance when optimizing for Youtube of going beyond mere metadata.  He talks about popularity and the need to engage with the community as those are clearly factors that drive the YouTube ranking algorithm.
