To get this information, Nielsen Online’s VideoCensus combines panel and census research methodologies to provide what it perceives to be an accurate count of viewing activity and engagement. Online video viewing is tracked according to video player, which can be used on site or embedded elsewhere on the web.

Unique viewers are classified as people who viewed full episodes, parts of an episode, or a program clip during the month. VideoCensus measurement does not include video advertising.

Nielsen has made some changes to its VideoCensus service in the last few months. This includes a panel that is 8 times larger, and what it says is more granular reporting and improved accuracy and “representativeness”.
