Do "series" clicks count as "suggested vidoes" or "playlists?"

When I mark a playlist as a "series," that means that the first video on the "suggested videos" section of a video's watch page will be the next video in that series. So if someone is watching Episode 5 of "Series X," then on the right side of the video, the top of the "suggested videos" (and therefore, the next video if the watcher has autoplay turned on) will always be Episode 6 of series X.

So when a watcher autoplays to the next video, will that be recorded by youtube's analytics as a "suggested videos" click or a "playlist" click?

I always assumed it'd be a playlist click, but I'm not really sure. :eek: I think if a viewer discovered the video from YouTube's front page suggestions or the recommend videos in the sidebar, then it would be considered a "suggested video" click. :eek:
