If you are the owner of the YouTube channel where the Hangouts on Air is hosted, you can simply log in and go to your Video Manager to see the view count for all your videos. No big deal there.
But, what if you are just a participant or doing a bit of research to see how many views a HoA is getting? How do you see the view count on those Hangouts on Air Videos?
Easy! No really, it is…
- If the video is “Featured” on the channel, you can click the “More Info” on the top right of the video.
- If the video is not featured, you can take the video and embed it on a website, then click the “More Info“.
Yes, both of those options do take a bit of time or luck, so I found yet another way.
Go ahead and watch the video to find this easy peasy way to show the view count of a Hangouts on Air video without ever leaving YouTube, embedding or even if the video is not in the “featured” spot. You will see the “URL Manipulation” method of getting the “more” button.
See how easy that is? It’s so easy even a caveman could do it…if he had a computer, electricity, and a service provider.

EDIT 1/10/13 - Youtube has put the slam on us viewing the Hangouts on Air view count. That’s right, they have hidden all the view counts from the public. Maybe I should have keep this info to myself. LOL
