    Hi guys,

    I hope I could convey my meaning...

    If Most of people PAUSE a video till it ends up, but do not PLAY it, then can this affect the audio retention and increases it because even if they Pause the lead/slide bar -what you call it?- goes ahead to load the whole video if you know what I mean? Regarding Audio retention does google detects and takes it into account if most of visitors Pause a video -but it loads till the end- or not?

    Thanks

    I guess no. I have tried with several new videos on new channel. After uploading I watch my own video and "paused" it at certain time, then closed the video before I finish watching it. The retention time is just as long as I watch the video before I closed it.
