Are YouTube analytics tracked when a video URL is added in a Canvas page?

Just wondering if anyone has tested if youtube analytics are counted when a video is added to Canvas by just pasting the URL within a page which then is detected by Canvas and embedded in the page. We use a lot of youtube hosted videos in our courses that we produce in-house and I would like to know the hits and statistics. It's hard to tell, but it doesn't seem to be accurate unless the student clicks out and watches in YouTube? Does anyone have any knowledge of this?
