Usually on Wednesdays, 7AM GMT +8.

Why Wednesday? I guess it's in the middle of the week.
Why 7AM? Honestly not sure why, probably cause it's morning here, and on the opposite end it's about late evening.

Morning.. then you have more views on THAT day , which looks better as you are giving more time for people to like it that day.

Statistically speaking, in marketing, emails are best sent on Tuesday at 2.00PM.
I just had a look at my YouTube stats and I cannot see data there which would give me that information.

I would have guessed 12.00 noon lunchtimes during the week and Sunday evenings but could be well out.

I believe some research a few years ago suggested 11 am local time for weekdays and early as possible on the weekends.

Me - I do Mondays and Thursdays. Nobody wants to be at work Monday and Thursday is them starting to dream of escaping for the weekend. Plus the off days between the two is about even.

For me it’s no so much of a day or time, but whether my most current post had receive the number of looks I was aiming for. I know once I post something new more attention will go towards that post, and less for any of the previous ones.

Straight from TubeBuddy.

The overwhelming consensus of YouTube Experts is that the best time to publish is any day/time that you can consistently publish.

What's most important is that your audience knows your publishing schedule and when to expect new content. (Make sure to include your schedule on your Channel Banner!)

That said, there are a couple other recommended strategies that you can try if your schedule allows you the freedom to publish at any time.

Strategy 1: Publish your video in the morning where most of your audience lives.
Why? This strategy ensures that your video is live during all prime hours when the largest chunk of your audience is awake.

How? Head to your Watch Time Analytics by Country and see where you get the most views from. If it's the United States, you can click to drill down into individual States. Find the time zone of the most popular location and plan to publish around 6am relative to their local time.

Strategy 2: Publish your video a few hours before your peak traffic hours.
Why? If you want views fast and increase the chance of virality, you might want to publish a couple hours before your audiences' peak viewing day/time of the week.

How?

Option 1: Head to your Real Time Views Analytics and examine your "last 24 hours" chart to find what hours of the day you get peak viewership and publish 2 or 3 hours before that.

Option 2: Connect your YouTube Channel to Google Analytics for daily and hourly in-depth data much beyond what YouTube Analytics offers. Instruction Guide Here
Note: Often times your peak analysis will coincide with your current publishing schedule. Keep this in mind when analyzing the data.

Nice.. Very detailed.. I wish I would take the effort to follow the steps but I prefer voodoo magic alakazam way to arbitrary picking my slot and hope for the best.. LOL..

I have a simple schedule but I don't tell or announce it because I don't want to be committed to it or have to make more announcements of changes and etc.

Ever since I started doing videos on a schedule, I post Sundays. Usually every other Sunday, but now, because of the Sunny Bear Challenge, I have posted every week, for past couple of weeks. Just felt like a good day for posting and I don't want to change it.
Previously it was just post after filming and editing, never before.

Second day is thursday, mainly because i'm free so i have time to upload it. Also 18:00 ish.

Those of you with limited time to post your videos, have you considered using the "Schedule" feature? I use it all the time, it means that when my videos go live, they are generally fully rendered in whatever resolution I am uploading at. When I was doing 4k vids in the past, it could take a few hours for it to reach full quality on YouTube, it stops that mostly by scheduling them! :)

Use it all the time.
But i have heard that it is important for the algorithm that the video is released the same day as it is uploaded.
So normally i upload in the morning and release it at the standard time my video's go online ;)
