What Are My Users/Students Publishing on YouTube?

There are several tools that show you what your users (such as students for example) are watching on YouTube.

From recent requests to our support desk, it has emerged that a major concern is ‘what videos are our users or students posting to YouTube?’

In another first for auditing, we’re pleased to announce ‘YouTube Auditing’ for all domain users, school, public, or brand channels posting videos to YouTube.

Limit on quota 

Note: Google has assigned a very small quota to this audit API.

We can apply for an increase when we demonstrate demand, but initial scans may fail due to a lack of quota for domains that try this audit late in the day.

Also to conserve quota each Admin will need to trigger their own scan by pressing the “Play” button

When the scan has completed you can see Channels and Videos.


Under Channels, you can see a Total number of videos, a number of public, private, or unlisted videos, the total number of channels, and the number of activated channels.

Note: Those values are videos created by Users of the domain.

In out case it shows Total number of videos 8 – those are videos owned by our domain, the majority of the videos belong to Channel which does not belong to any paricular user as it is brand channel.

Below the quick table, you can see the Channels created by users of your domain.

In the table, you can see Videos created by each channel and the state of them whether they are published, private or unlisted videos.


Under Videos, you can see All the videos of your domain individually

On the top, left you can filter by External or Internal videos alongside the info for each video, such as owner, title, published time, privacy status, flags.
