Tracking "plays" from Onebox videos?


(Lisa Wess) #1

Hello all - we frequently embed videos in our forums using Onebox. I know with a link there is click tracking for numbers of times clicked. Is there any way to track how many times something was played?

I suspect we need to go to the video provider for those stats but figured it couldn’t hurt to ask.

Thanks!

I believe it’s impossible for us to track how often a video is played, as it’s embedded via an iframe, and we don’t have access to the events inside it.

Yea, that’s what I thought. Had to exhaust this avenue - thank you @eviltrout!
