Export data from YouTube Analytics

Export data from YouTube Analytics to analyze large sets of performance metrics. You can export data while looking at either a channel or a specific video. If you're a content manager, you can also download reports for multiple channels. Downloaded reports are limited to 500 rows. Use the YouTube Analytics API to download more than 500 rows of data.

Dates in exported reports are shown in Unix time, in milliseconds. To convert to a date format in a spreadsheet, use the following formula and format the cell as a date: [Unix time value]/86400000+date(1970,1,1).
