YouTube Insight , New Feature: [googleblog.blogspot.com]Hot Spots
This information is now available to all YouTube video uploaders with an innovative new feature for Insight called "Hot Spots." The Hot Spots tab in Insight plays your video alongside a graph that shows the ups-and-downs of viewership at different moments within the video. We determine "hot" and "cold" spots by comparing your video's abandonment rate at that moment to other videos on YouTube of the same length, and incorporating data about rewinds and fast-forwards. So what does that mean? Well, when the graph goes up, your video is hot: few viewers are leaving, and many are even rewinding on the control bar to see that sequence again. When the graph goes down, your content's gone cold: many viewers are moving to another part of the video or leaving the video entirely.

Always wondered how youtube ranked videos in their SERPs. Maybe this is a factor.

That is totally cool. A great idea.

I'm wondering if they have been capturing historical data to display, and if so, how far back?

"This information is now available to all YouTube video uploaders"

There is no "Hot Spot" tab under Insight in my account, would like to check it out though.

All I get is...

"There is insufficient data to display the Hot Spots graph for this video"

Is this thing working for others? Do you need a minimum number of views? I have 400 so far.
