    Hey guys,

    noticed this new feature today, can anyone tell me if in their stats this feature take in consideration the entire lifetime of their videos or just the latest days? I'm having a pretty hard time understanding that.

    It will be interesting to see if fake views with decent view retention will fool this new counter.

    YouTube starting tracking this beginning Sept 1st, 2012. Any "minutes watched" before September 1st, 2012 are not counted toward the displayed total.
