We are trying to find out how many times a mp4 file was accessed through a Google sites. The mpg4 file was saved on Google Drive and we are using Google Analytics to record the stats. There doesn't seem to be a way to view requested file stats which have been saved on Google Drive. Any ideas?

hi Michelle,

i haven't done any such thing so far but according to my knowledge i suggest you to add utm parameters to the google drive url. this will give you reports related to the url directed to google drive.

It might be possible if there is a way to insert tracking code to to your personal drive and use event tracking to track video. and i don't think you can add any tracking to drive because you don't own it

hope this will give you some idea Smiley Happy

Cheers
Noman Karim
