Kaltura Video Analytics


In Kaltura, as a media owner or co-editor, you can see who has watched a video and for how long. This can be a helpful way to see whether and how often users are viewing videos you have posted, and/or finding out when they (or specific users) have lost interest/stopped watching the video. 


Viewing analytics for Kaltura videos is only possible when it has been published in the following ways:

  • By adding Kaltura video to a course, either using Embed Kaltura Media button in the Rich Content Editor or by adding the video to a Media Gallery.

Video Performance Over Time

By default, the Player Impression tab shows, displaying a graph of impressions. Impressions data shows how many times your video thumbnails are shown.

To explore engagement trends over time, use the graph to review key metrics:
