Getting started with analytics
Flowplayer focus on getting you the most important video metrics to give you insights how your content is performing and how your audience is engaging with it. We recently updated our analytics capabilities and here we introduce our new analytics in a blog entry. For more details continue to read below.
For each platform video embedded with Flowplayer Native you can find detailed analytics about the video and the audience by scrolling down in the video view in your account. This include things such as:
For a full deep dive see our video analytics help.
Video analytics are available for videos hosted by us and for remote video assets (ie if they are registered in our system) if embedded with Flowplayer Native. External videos without a Flowplayer
src id or platform videos embedded with their stream url instead of the id cannot be tracked.
src id is mandatory.
To get the best understanding about your livestream performance and engagement we have included a specific livestream analytics as part of each livestream. You go to the livestream view in your account in question and scroll down to see the analytics. Examples of what you can see is:
- current livestream viewers (in real-time)
More information is available in our livestream analytics section.
- which content is most popular?
- how was the overall audience?
- how was the overall engagement?
- what is the trend?
For a list of our analytics metrics and their definitions you can see our analytics reference.
We provide access to our analytics from our analytics API.
