    Hey there!

    As far as I know you can only get stats like that for individual videos (by ID). But this would be a major overhead – for me 😉 and in terms of precious API calls – compared to a relatively small set of data being returned. You would still have to get a list of “related” videos and then request the stats for each result seperately.

    You can see for yourself what kind data YouTube is returning: https://developers.google.com/youtube/v3/docs/search/list#try-it

    Just enter the word “snippet” into the “part” field, a number into the “maxResults” field, and a search query into the “q” field.

    That aside, I myself find it more interesting to see how many people clicked the videos when they’re on my site. If you’re using Google Analytics or Piwik you have to setup something called “event tracking” to do that. And I’m sure other analytics tools can do that as well.
