*A video is defined as any streamed segment of audio-visual content, including both progressive downloads and live streams. For long-form, segmented content (e.g. television episodes with ad pods in the middle), each segment of the content is counted as a distinct video stream. Video views are inclusive of both user-initiated and auto-played videos that are viewed for longer than 3 seconds.
