When you watch a YouTube video, many of the videos have a "statistics" option below, where you can see the views of the video throughout time, since the video has been posted. enter image description here

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to access the raw data behind the graph, and I was wondering if there is any way to do this? I've looked in the YouTube API, but can't find anything there. If any of you are familiar with any way to do this, inside or outside YouTube itself (an external source would also be just fine), I would really appreciate it.
