Youtube

We have some embedded youtube videos. Is there any way to track when they watch a video?

No, youtube doesn't allow any third party tracking as far as we know.

What about this script?

What would the Clicky syntax be if I wanted to experiment with this?

Yeah that would probably work, but I haven't tried so I can't guarantee. Basically use the same code, but instead of:

pageTracker._trackEvent('video', 'play');

Do this:

clicky.log('#video-play', "Video play");

Is this still the best way of adding a goal when someone clicks to watch an embedded youtube video.
