Currently in referral tracking, it does not allow you to input a whole youtube video url (I think it wont accept the "?" as it say invalid characters).

Because of this I use the alphanumeric code at the end of the url for the tracking. However the tracking only tracks the impressions received from that video, and the referral count stays at zero.

I would appreciate it if this could be fixed, either by allowing the input field to allow whole youtube video urls, or by fixing whatever stops the referrals from being counted for the youtube codes.

Thanks for the suggestion, I've forwarded this to a programmer.

Wait.. this is as fast as it takes to get a new feature put into place? I always thought it was because programmers were backed up, not that you guys just don't like our ideas :p

Sorry to bother you again, but it still doesn't seem to work properly for youtube videos. The input field now allows entire links, so you did fix that but it still only seems to track impressions.

www.youtube.com - shows referrals but not specific
youtube.com - shows referrals but not specific
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I9wh4teverpM - doesn't show referrals
www.youtube.com/watch?v=I9wh4teverpM - doesn't show referrals
youtube.com/watch?v=I9wh4teverpM - doesn't show referrals
watch?v=I9wh4teverpM - doesn't show referrals

In my referrals list the 'link they came from' is often displayed fully (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I9wh4teverpM). I don't know what the problem could be but it would be much appreciated if you could try and fix this, and allow us to see the number of referrals for each specific youtube video in tracking.
