    Sounds like the most efficient way to find out where these hits are coming from would be to use the IP addresses in your logs, however this does sound to me like the behavior of a monitoring service, had you perhaps set up monitoring in the past - monitoring nodes could still be hitting your site and contributing to this - and a common characteristic of these sorts of checks is that they won't load analytics code - and hence won't appear in your logs there! Worth a check.

    Could it be that some bots started uncontrollably accessing your site? What does it say next to the line "Unknown robot (identified by 'bot' followed by a space or one of the following characters _+:,.;/\-)" in your awstats? If your site has been growing you will have all sorts of bots trying to access it consuming your RAM, increasing your CPU usage, etc.

    Did you find an answer on this one?

    If these aren't loading the JS is the video really being played?
