Video Quartile Stats Incorrect

[ Edited ]

 Hi Guys,

 

I ran a video ad campaign, the length of my video is 1:15 or 75 seconds. Now since adwords only counts views when someone watches 30 seconds of video or if some user engages with the video.

 

If i look at the metric 

Screenshot 2016-04-23 00.31.47.png

 

 

Video played to 25% or 0.25*75 = 18.5 seconds is 16.67% which cannot be correct since adwords counts views = 30 seconds played.

Hence video watched 25% should be 100%.

 

I am really confused, can you guys please confirm this behaviour.

HI Suman, i had already gone through the above thread, but my data issue is still there. If i convert the percentages to numbers it does not match.

"Video played to 25% or 0.25*75 = 18.5 seconds is 16.67% which cannot be correct since adwords counts views = 30 seconds played.
Hence video watched 25% should be 100%."
since my video 25% > 30 seconds

Did you check bramvdh's response in the same thread? I think it explains the equation.

Hi Suman, could you please explain here as i am not able to understand what are you hinting at.

my problem is that if my video = 75 seconds then 25% of the video = 18.75 seconds

since views are counted only when someone views your video for 30 seconds, 25% quartile should be 100% which is not the case.
