Hi Amit, 

 

Thank you for posting your video question on the Community. This is a common issue arising from permission of certain features not granted in the YouTube accounts. But you can correct this with these steps, if you are the YouTube account owner too.

 

Video Manager > Channel Settings > Advanced > "Link an AdWords for video account" section > Permissions

With that linking, the view counts should match (in 1-2 days)

Hope that helps. If not, let us know.

 

Best, 

Mini

For reference,

I would also keep in mind that pre-rolls will not add to the video view count because they are not invite-only (true-view) ads. If you need any assistance there:
