What analytics are available for Youtube videos on DIKSHA?

The analytics for Youtube videos are derived from the following telemetry events:

  • Play
  • Pause
  • Stop
  • Seek (Drag time control)
  • Heartbeat event (an event every 3 min just to ensure that video is being played)

These events are available as a stream and not aggregated as a metric.

No, there are no size restrictions. On DIKSHA, Youtube video URLS are shared, and thus there are no size restrictions.
