Unique Events numbers for Video tracking

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

I have event tracking enabled on my website and I'm tracking videos.. When I go to the Top Events report I can see Unique Events. When I drill down further I can see Plays, 25% Watched, etc. Why aren't the Unique Events and number of Plays the same for a particular video?

Hi Lindsay
Because if someone plays the video 3 times then they would be a Unique of 1 but a Play of 3 - does that answer the Q?

So wouldn't that mean the Unique number would be lower than the play number? I'm seeing the number of plays = 1,877, but the unique number = 1,976.

is there any chance that you have more than one event triggering per play.

i.e. if you have an event on play and an event on reach ed 30sec mark or reach completion etc.

then you could have lots of events per play?

Behaviour > Events > Overview
Review all of the events you have set up and what they do.
