It doesn't look like  the out of box video tracking functionality capture the url that the video is embedded on. This seems like a valuable piece of information that should be sent automatically so that you can report on Viral Video. We currently have to go to our video provider to get that information. We are big on making sure people can get their information in one place.

This type of tracking is invaluable  in the event that a video goes viral. I work for a news content provider, and this type of real-time information is vital to news distribution.

I like this one a lot. You can currently pull in the URL where the video has been embedded into an eVar. However, we are working on simplifying the method for pulling the URL into SiteCatalyst reporting.
