You say to look up about branding to apply your brand to your channel, but all the discussions I have found talk about how the branding features were eliminated in the new html 5 design changes.
Are the following things possible? 1- I would love to be able to have a logo with an embedded link. 2- Create analytics for playlists views of videos that I don't own but of people that come to my channel. I simply want it for the purposes of knowing which viewers that I am attracting. I use playlists to attract people so they can discover my own videos.
