Youtube Video tracking

In addition to Marketo forms, we have also integrated YouTube videos in our showroom. Is there a way in Marketo to find out which person has been watching which YouTube video for how long?

Yes, if you include the Munchkin-YouTube bridge, which you can download from here:

 

https://assets.codepen.io/250687/teknkl-youtubebridge-1.1.0.js

 

(download it and then reupload it to your Marketo Design Studio).

 

You can see demo of how to use and configure the Bridge here:

 

https://codepen.io/figureone/pen/PoYWLjq?editors=1010

 

There are a few settings you can tweak (or leave at defaults):

  var YouTubeMunchkinConfig = {
    interestingTimeSS : 10, // elapsed time in seconds that you find interesting
    interestingPercentPosition : 33, // elapsed percent that you find interesting
    synthUrlBase : "/munchkinVideoTracker/video/" // base path of synthetic Visit Web Page hits (video ID is appended)    
  };

 

Then you'll get Visits Web Page activities in the Activity Log like so:

 

Page: www.example.com/munchkinVideoTracker/video/tuSvnhcATUE

Query String: movie-action=pressed-play&movie-percent-position=0

 

Page: www.example.com/munchkinVideoTracker/video/tuSvnhcATUE

Query String: movie-action=pressed-pause&movie-percent-position=10

 

Page: www.example.com/munchkinVideoTracker/video/tuSvnhcATUE

Query String: movie-action=passed-im-mark&movie-percent-position=39

Which link can't you access? I tested the links and they both work for me.

Re: Youtube Video tracking

Hi,

 

after successfully downloading the script and uploading it to the design studio, I created the smart list following your instruction. Everything worked pretty well!

But now I'm wondering which actions/filters I should use to build a workflow in the flow tap in order to receive my results - can you help?

Re: Youtube Video tracking

Well... it would be the same as any interesting activity, right? You can choose to set a Program Success Status, log an Interesting Moment, etc.
