Solved Track where the YouTube videos were watched?

Specs: Windows 7
So I was wondering if there is anyway I can get the location of where the videos were watched.

The long story:
My laptop was stolen. I just found out that whoever was using my laptop was also still logged on to my YouTube account, so the videos he/she watched are also on my history. I was wondering if thee was anyway I can use this to track where he/she was watching these videos?

✔ Best Answer
It can be traced but it is not a simple procedure.

You tube can determine the IP address that was used to view the video. Then they will need to contact the ISP that owns the IP address and get the informations to was watching the video from their records.

Most ISPs will not revel that information with proper authority and a request from Utube does not constitute proper authority. A court of law does.

So unless you can get the law enforcement agencies in your county involved and convince them it is worth investigating there is not a lot you can do.
