An "Absolute unique visitor" is a viewer/browser who has accessed the video for the first time. "Absolute unique visitors" shows the number of viewers/browers who viewed the video for the first time, in a given time period.
In other words, when a viewer opens a video that he has not seen yet, s/he is counted as an "Absolute unique visitor". If this viewer accesses the video later again, using the same browser, s/he is recognized and no longer counted as an "Absolute unique visitor".
