    I've been using YouTube to host my videos - but the problem is I can only see "Views" - I have no idea if people are watching 3 SECONDS or 3 MINUTES of my videos. I doesn't let me accurately gauge "how good" my videos are.

    I'd like something that shows the play time.
    Does this exist?

    Have you seen the insight for your videos under my account? It shows the hotspots from the videos amongst other things.

    yes, i'm aware of that feature.
    I'm also aware that it blows.
    For instance, the "demographics" feature only works apparently if you get 100s of views. The demographic targeting just shows me what country people are coming from. Hardly useful since 100% of my traffic/biz is in the U.S.

    I'm looking into tubemogul right now. It's got some seriously sweet stat tracking capabilities - but I'm not sure if it will track them when embedded on my site or just when viewed from the network sites I have the videos actually on (youtube, viddler, metacafe, etc).

    If anyone knows, please chime in.
