Hi Friends,

My steps were to set a Goal for this:

Check these steps, if these steps are wrong than what is the right way to do it?

 

Help me to set configuration for that Goal on Google Analytics.

Hi Jogesh,

Before setting a goal for events, you should set event tracking in your website. You should send to GA events values for each conditions. (Category, action, label etc..)
Here is information about event tracking.

And by the way here you can find Lunametric's plugin for tracking youtube videos.
