How to connect to YouTube Analytics
When creating a YouTube Analytics data source, you can connect to your YouTube channel data in the following ways:
The All option provides a list of all the accounts and channels to which you have access.
The My Channel option provides a list of the channels associated with your current Google account.
If you use YouTube’s Content ID Matching system, you are considered to be a YouTube Content Owner. You can manage multiple channels, and allow other users to access this channel data on your behalf. The Content Owners option provides a list of all the content owner accounts to which you have access. Selecting an account will then show you a list of your channels.
The Google+ Pages option lets you access channel data via an associated Google+ page. (A YouTube channel connected to a Google+ page can be shared across multiple accounts, which makes Google+ a useful tool for team-based video management.)
Use the Advanced option to specify either a channel or a content owner ID directly.
Only 50 channels are displayed in the Content Owners and Google+ Pages options. Use the advanced option to access other channels.
