About Video Insights
Last updated, May 2024

Video Insights on TikTok Ads Manager is a tool that allows you to analyze your video creative performance and understand your audience through video interactions to inspire the next high-performing video.

Use Video Insights to dig deeper into your highest and lowest-performing videos, compare videos with each other, and even compare video performance against industry benchmark values.

Video Insights allows you to build engaging content that works.

Within each individual video analysis page, advertisers will be able to view:

  • ​Key frame analysis

  • ​Audience breakdown

  • ​Instant page and Interactive Add-On activity

  • ​Individual video comment insights

Compare Video Performance

Video Insights lets you select videos to compare performance across pre-defined metrics such as total cost, CPC, CPM, or across custom columns that you define. Plus, our Industry Benchmark rankings show how your videos perform against others in the same industry. You'll get a better understanding of your video performance while setting benchmarks between your highest and lowest-performing videos.

Deep Video Analysis

For each video within the Video Analysis drawer, you can access impactful modules ranging from key frame analysis and audience breakdowns to interactive add-ons and comment analysis. These modules can help you better understand how and why certain videos perform better than others, and which video elements contribute to that success.

Industry Ranking

The Industry Ranking filter shows how your video creatives (across all of your accessible ad accounts) are performing against industry benchmarks.

How to compare videos with the Video Comparison Feature

To start with video comparisons, select the time frame for the video(s) you want to compare.

Next, select which video(s) you want to add to each video group. You can select anywhere from 1 to an unlimited number of videos per video group. Once you have specified each video group, you will be able to view aggregated video group metrics to compare across video groups.

Video Group Comparison

With the video group comparison feature, advertisers can select two individual videos or groups of videos to compare. Aggregate metrics will appear in the table for each video group.


Video key frame Comparison

With the video key frame comparison feature, advertisers can select two videos to compare frame by frame on a metric they choose from the dropdown list. Although you will only be able to compare one video to another video at a time, putting all of the relevant videos you want to compare into groups will make it easier to toggle between different videos with the given radio buttons.
