This is now available to search-index videos published on your website as well. The video indexing report shows up if you have videos on your website and are indexed.
According to Google, the video index report provides you answers to three major questions.
In how many of your pages has Google recognized as having a video?
Which of them were successfully indexed?
What are the issues for videos not being indexed?
Google clarifies that this report is in addition to the Video Rich Results report, which does not demonstrate the validity of video structured data items. If you publish videos on your website, you must check both reports.
Before this update, Google Search Console only reported on structured data-marked videos.
Now with the new change in the URL Inspection tool, video indexing status can be easily checked. Inspect a page, and you get video URL and thumbnail URL details, page status showing if the video was indexed or not, and issues preventing the video from being indexed.
