Video tracking

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

We've added a video to our page but the tracking doesn't seem to happen (Just 5 video plays vs 1000+ page views). Here's the content id - p5cWF5YzE6l1pXqFZbmiamgAdYwIetUQ. The video can be found at "http://www.fisher-price.com/en_US/ourstory/index.html" under Nurture their Nature section. Our requirement is to auto play the video. So I'm not sure if the video is tracked only on play button click. Please advise.

 

Also what's the best way to add third party tracking like Google Analytics ?

 

Thanks,

Nirmal

Re: Video tracking

Hello

 

Answering your question If you set autoplay it will count as play requested, I'm already reviewed your site and you are using v4.3.3 it will be a great idea to use the latest version 4.18.15 here is the release notes http://help.ooyala.com/video-platform/concepts/pbv4_release_notes.html

 

Here is an example of API CALL to analytics

 

POST /v3/analytics/reports

{
"report_type": "performance",
"dimensions": "asset",
"metrics": [
"plays_requested",
"displays",
"playthrough_100"
],
"filters": "(asset==\"p5cWF5YzE6l1pXqFZbmiamgAdYwIetUQ\")",
"start_date": "2017-01-01",
"end_date": "2017-11-22",
"api_key": "YOUR API KEY"
}
