Number of views by day, Week Month



11 Sep, 2016 11:24 PM


I want to be able to find the most viewed video for the last day, week or month. This way I can rank them for popularity within that period. Currently with the API I'm only able to get the total views since the creation of the video with the playCount attribute.

How can I figure out the number of views in a period of time using the API?

    Hey Yassir,

    Thank you for reaching out.
    We do not have a built in feature to do this for you but there may be a work around here. If you would like to know your most viewed video for each day/week/month you could run the playCount call at the beginning of each day/week/month then deduct the total of the previous results. The remainder would be the amount for that day/week/month.

    How does that sound to you?
