#3037 new enhancement Show the views of the video

Reported by: Mte90 Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Keywords: needs-patch


Actually on video pages is not possible to show the views of the video, this is very uncomfortable because is the only reason why I share the youtube links.
I am not sure if that value is saved in the system but in any case is one of the basic features of a video service and I think that is important to have that also on

As an admin, the stats can be found on e.g. , so the views are somewhere tracked.

I should be sufficient to display the total number somewhere on the page

Because WPTV is on wpcom (VIP) it may be possible to leverage the wpcom REST API to get that stat:

I think is a good idea to show the views. You can see which Videos are popular, and even for the Speakers and Organizers, can see which videos has more views and try to learn which ones has more interest.

+1 to implement it!

Jerry's right, this looks completely possible and would be an exciting enhancement. Thanks for the suggestion @Mte90!
