You probably use some sort of analytics service to analyze the data about your website visits. Until now, you could integrate FV Player video statistics with Google Universal Analytics, or more recently, with Matomo Analytics. Now you can separate the data and watch your video stats right in the FV Player plugin.
FV Player now allows you to see your video statistics right in the plugin!
This is only the very first version of this feature. More statistical tools and comprehensive data views are coming in the future.
HOW TO ENABLE STATISTICS
Go to Settings -> FV Player -> Sitewide FV Player Defaults -> Video Stats
Once enabled, go to FV Player -> Stats in your WordPress menu.
how to use FV Player Stats
This being the first version, the feature is very simple as of right now. You will see two graphs. The horizontal axis is the date and the vertical axis is the number of views. The first graph shows the overall top 10 videos played past week, by the name of the player. The second one shows the top 10 videos by posts containing them.
For example, you might get 50 views on a video embedded in two posts, resulting in 50 views in the first graph. These 50 views will then be divided between the two posts in the second graph.
Each item has an assigned color. You can gain better view by toggling the individual items on and off by clicking on them. To see the exact number of views in a given day, hover your mouse over the dot signifying that date.
That’s it for now. Simple, yet powerful. We wanted to give you the ability to see video stats in our plugin as soon as possible, but there are great improvements in store for this feature.
