This lets you generate your own custom reports, retrieving just the data you are interested in.
For example if you need to find out how many views a particular video has had from a location or device, you can ask that question using our query language: VQL. We recommend reading our guide to how to write a VQL query, but let’s say we wanted to find out the cities in Great Britain that an example account’s videos were watched from last month:
SELECT total FROM VideosAnalytics THIS-MONTH WHERE country = GB
You can also do comparisons to see whether your videos are performing better. Let’s compare how many views our videos got this month compared to last month:
SELECT total FROM VideosAnalytics THIS-MONTH COMPARED-TO LAST-MONTH
From this example report, we can see our videos were watched 5 times this month - and that was a decrease of 7 compared to last month. We might need to make them more prominent.
We recommend reading our guide to learn more about how the query is structured. We are expanding the number of questions you can ask and how the data is structured, so if you have any additional requirements or feedback, please do let us know.
As always, you can email us at [email protected] if you have any questions about Vidbeo Insights, our business video hosting service, or the online video platform in general.
