Two interesting metrics are the “Average percentage seen” which is how much of my video people see (did people see 25%,50%, or 99% of your video?) and the “Average view duration“, given in seconds.

These two metrics make you understand if people are interested about your video or not. With Tanaza, you can set a minimum duration in seconds and the user will not be allowed to skip the video until the countdown ends.
