Integrating Google Analytics with Screen9

    Follow

    Introduction

    Screen9 provides the ability to collect statistics for media delivered by Screen9 on your own Google Analytics account. The Screen9 Google Analytics feature tracks the following metrics:

    • Impressions - Playbacks loaded
    • Started plays - Amounts of "first play" clicks. If a user replays the video after it ends it will count as 2 started plays.

    Requirements

    To send the statistics to your Google Analytics account you must meet the following conditions:

    1. Use iframe or JavaScript embed
      Statistics can only be collected when video is presented in the Screen9 player using an iframe or JavaScript to present the player.

    2. A property in Google Analytics
      If you are new to Google analytics, start by setting up a property in Google Analytics. You will need the "Web Property ID" of your property in Google Analytics. Instructions on how to find your "Web Property ID" can be found on this page under "Find your tracking ID".

    3. Register your Web Property ID (UA-XXXXX-X) in Console.
