When you upload a video to YouTubeYouTubeYouTube, you get access to YouTube Insight, a powerful analytics tool that shows you a bunch of interesting metrics about your video: who�s watching it, where, its ratings, total number of views and the like.

This info, however, was � until now � hidden from the rest of the general population, but not any more. By switching it on in the the privacy settings for your videos (located under �My Account�) you can now share this data with everyone.
