I have commercials on youtube with clickable links to bring people to my website. Hundreds of people view the videos but piwik never shows visitors from youtube. Not even once. Same thing with my videos in Vimeo. It only shows visitors from Facebook. What is wrong??
can you paste here an example youtube ad that links to your website? same for Vimeo?
What might happen is that the referer is not being passed when a user clicks on these ads.

Thank you. Here they are.
I went on Solve America's Problems and clicked on your link in the video description and Piwik should have tracked it.
No it did not. It only shows 1 visit from Facebook. It never shows youtube.
We now have a Media Analytics plugin that tracks Videos & Audio!
More information is available here: http://www.media-analytics.net/ The plugin gives useful insights into media / video / audio analytics and adds many new reports, widgets and segments to Piwik.
Works with HTML5 video & audio, Vimeo and YouTube out of the box. Support for other players can be added easily and is documented in the developer docs. We are also happy to add support for more players upon request, please ping us. After installation the plugin will in most cases directly start tracking data see the setup guide
