How does playlist analytics work

Playlist analytics uses video group reporting to show aggregated analytics for all videos in a playlist. For each of your playlists, you can access the Overview, Content, Audience, and Revenue tab to find insights aggregated together for all your videos in the playlist. Additionally, there are metrics to help you understand viewer behavior within each playlist. Learn more about playlist metrics.
Excluded videos from playlist analytics

Several metrics in your playlist analytics do not include videos owned by other channels. These metrics aggregate all viewer activity on a video, regardless of whether it is watched in the playlist or elsewhere on YouTube. For example, Total views, Audience, and Revenue insights do not include videos from other channels.

Other metrics such as views from playlist, playlist watch time, and playlist average duration include videos from other channels. These metrics only reflect viewer activity in the context of your playlist.

Remember that you can manage the videos in your playlists directly within YouTube Studio. Learn how to manage your playlist.
