YouTube Video Names in Datastudio

Follower ✭ ☆ ☆

Hi guys and girls,

 

When creating a table with your TOP10 most watched videos, I would like to include the Video Names and not just their ID's/tags/country codes etc. Is there a way to do this?  

 

I have no clue which video belongs to which ID and it doesn't look nice when reporting to clients.

 

Many thanks in advance!

Hi Peter,

 

Video names aren't available yet. We should have them available in early Q1.

 

Sorry for the delay!

Hi Peter

 

I had the same issue few days ago. Unfortunately you don't have the choice ... It's necessary to match each video ID with the correct video name ... Once you have this you have to create a new dimension for the video name using the case function ...

For example :

CASE WHEN REGEXP_MATCH(video ID, 'xxxxxxxx') THEN 'video name' else 'xxxx' end

 

video ID = the dimension where you stock the video ID ...

Wanted to let you know that the 'Video Title' field is now available in Data Studio. You can see it by creating a new YouTube data source or updating an existing data source. Hope that helps!

Remove and reconnect your YouTube Analytics and then it should be available. Worked for me.

@CampioniAuto S, you have two options here:

 

1) as @Peter G says you can remove and recreate your YouTube Analytics connector

2) you can refresh your existing connector using these instructions

 

 

Hope that helps!
