Direct request

The term Direct request indicates all the video views not coming from links located on other sites, for example in case your visitor directly enters the url of the page containing the video seen in the browser address toolbar or he reaches the page containing the video seen via the link saved within the "Bookmarks" / "Favourite" sites.

No referrer

The term "No referrer" is assigned to all the requests to the ShinyStat servers with an incorrect or absent "referrer" heading.

Please note that the referrer of a video is the referrer of the page where the video was seen.
The system measures a video view only when the user clicks the play button and starts to watch the video.
If a visitor plays more videos on the same page, the system measures more video views for the same referrer.
The referrer is internal when the visit has already started on another page of your website.
