SEAnalytics Google Analytics feature

April 28, 2016

We have a Google Analytics plugin ready which sends all of your stream hits to GA, providing number of sessions, average time watched per stream (by country and city), as well populating the real-time map view location stats that GA made famous. This view correlates well with our real-time viewer counter and graph.

Note that this is different from either JW Player Analytics or Wowza's Analytics. Specifically, we can pass real-time viewer activity data from every edge node worldwide, on every stream, including viewer IP address. Because we are able to report in real time on Live Streams, (which JW Player's analytics cannot do), you get a live heat map of your streaming event in GA. It's also a lot better than Wowza's Analytics module, which does not pass viewer IP address, and only reports the server IP address to GA.
