How to collect Youtube playlist title

Options

I am trying to do some youtube analysis and would like to set up a filter base on playlist titles.  I am using standard youtube report API pulling data in Domo.  I can pull playlist id but could not find any report that has playlist titles.  Can anyone help me with it?  

 

Another question related to Youtube: youtube playlist traffic report and youtube traffic report do not have the same video_ids.  I would assume they should have the same video_ids, except playlist reprot inlcude playlist id.  Can anyone help me understand it?

 

Thank you.

    Hi Olivia,

     

    There is an option called "RETRIEVE VIDEO AND CHANNEL NAMES" on the connector, that if you select that it will return the names.

    Olivia,

     

    Thank you for asking these questions. I am double checking the YouTube API and the Domo Connector documentation to provide an accurate answer.

     

    I believe it is possible via the API, but I am not sure if that feature has been added to the Domo Connector.

    I agree that the Video Ids should match, so I am looking at the documentation to find out if we should expect them to match. https://developers.google.com/youtube/v3/guides/implementation/playlists

    Hello, Smurray,

     

    thank you for your help.  I've looked at this report, but it only gives me the title for each individual videos, what I need is the playlist titles so that I can add a filter for the playlist. 

     

    For example, our youtube channels has playlists eventA, eventB, eventC etc, under each playlist, there are several videos. I wanted to get eventA, evetnB and eventC.  

     

    Can you give me more idea.
