    i wasn't really sure where to post this but i have a question. you embed a video from youtube, vimeo, dailymotion, or other video sites... they can see the views are coming from the websites where the embeds are located. we check analytics and it shows the view count of the video on the site where embed is located. however, can they see the location of the viewer, the referrer to the page of the embed, and the ip address of the viewer? just curious because i'm finding analytics not very accurate for several of our embedded videos compared to the direct video link. i'm thinking this analytic information would only be available at the site where the video is embedded and not with youtube, dialymotion, vimeo, etc?.. thanks for helping!
