Asset reports

Asset reports provide user activity metrics related to videos that are linked to a content owners' assets. A video is included in a content owner's report if the content owner has claimed that video as a match of one of the content owner's assets. The video could have been uploaded by the content owner or by another YouTube user.

In asset reports, the channel_id dimension identifies the channel that uploaded the video_id for which metrics are being provided.

Note: User activity metrics in asset reports might be incorrect for the day that a video was claimed. The discrepancy arises from the fact that the metrics in the report reflect all user activity for that day rather than just activity that occurred after the claim was made.

For example, on a particular day, suppose a video is viewed 10 times, then it is claimed, and then it is viewed another 10 times. The asset report for that day will state that the video was viewed 20 times, even though only 10 of those views occurred after the claim took place. Metrics on all successive days should accurately reflect user activity related to the claimed video.
