Analytics support for flowplayer using piwik
collective.piwik.flowplayer displays a video play counter in Plone sites that use flowplayer.
The Piwik open source analytics system (http://piwik.org/) is used to store the usage data.
Works both with and without collective.transcode.star
How to get it working
You need to have access to a working Piwik installation. Create a new site in the Piwik admin UI and provide the view permission to anonymous users.
You need to make a small change at the tracking tag adding the line “var site_id = X;”, replacing X with your Piwik site_id For example, if in the Piwik code you have: var piwikTracker = Piwik.getTracker(pkBaseURL + “piwik.php”, 6); then site_id = 6 in your case
If you do the above a viewlet should appear on top of flowplayer displaying the number of views of each video.
The number of a video views shown is increased when a user presses play on a video. If you want to change this behavior, edit collective/piwik/flowplayer/viewlet.pt (change onStart for example).
