Google analytics support is baked right into FV Flowplayer 5.
default FV Flowplayer 5 options
Flowplayer tracks following information when user leaves a page:
- Seconds played. If video was repeated this is more than the duration of the video
- Flash or HTML5 / video format
- Video title or file name
These views can be found under Google Analytics > Content > Events > Top Events > Video / Seconds played.
Play around with the 'Secondary dimension' dropdown. For a better visual view select the pie chart. If your site already uses or is planning to use Google Analytics it's good to view those statistics in the same place.
Why on page leave?
The best place to track video data is when user leaves the page. You know
exactly the total amount of seconds viewed. Sending data during playback gives
you messy results; pausing, fullscreen, seeking are not important.
Flowplayer sends event data on jQuery's unload event. The handling of the unload event varies on different browsers. For example, some versions of Firefox trigger the event when a link is followed, but not when the window is closed. However around 90% of events are tracked giving you good overall statistics but 100% reliability is not guaranteed.
For FV Flowplayer v1 (Flowplayer v3) this suggestion might help.
