By request from several users, we've added easier access to the video analytics dashboard

YouTube Embed 2.0

This upgrade specifically integrates a user-friendly YouTube Analytics Dashboard to this plugin so you can learn a lot more about the videos you post. Download it if you would like it to use your site's YouTube-related activity to help answer questions like:

  • How much are your visitors actually watching the videos you post?
  • How does the view activity on your site compare to other sites like it?
  • What and when are your best and worst performers?
  • How much do the producers of the YouTube videos you embed rely on your site for views?

We think these are all interesting questions; however, note that there's no need to upgrade if you don't.
