Bitmovin Analytics helps you to better understand how your users consume your content, and it helps you to identify potential improvements of your current installation based on the broad variety of the collected metrics through our player and the analytics framework in real time. This enables you to quickly identify potential bottlenecks, potential bandwidth savings, and other cost optimizations, so your users can experience the best possible performance of your content delivery.
Before you continue, please make sure that you already prepared your player and its license as described here.
Step 1) Setup your Bitmovin Analytics License
White-list your website domain
Once, you are logged to your dashboard at https://dashboard.bitmovin.com, click on “Analytics” in the menu on the left and select “Licenses”. You will see an overview about all the details of your analytics license.
In order to use Bitmovin Analytics on your website, you have to white-list its domain in your Bitmovin analytics license. So, if you want to use it on your website at https://www.example.com, you have to white-list its domain “example.com” accordingly. Subdomains of your white-listed domains (e.g. “subdomain.example.com”) are white-listed by default, so is “localhost” to simplify the development process.
In order to whitelist a domain ...
- enter your domain into the field “Add Domain”, and click “+ADD”.
- If successful, the white-listed domain will be shown in the list below.
Hint: White-listed domains of Bitmovin Analytics and Player licenses aren’t shared between those services. So, if you are using our player as well as the analytics on your site, you have to white-list your domain in both licenses.
Step 2) Integrate Bitmovin Analytics
Get your Analytics License Key
In your dashboard at https://dashboard.bitmovin.com, click on “Analytics” in the menu on the left and select “Licenses”. You will see an overview about all the details of your analytics license, including the Bitmovin Analytics Key. This key needs to be added to your Bitmovin Analytics configuration, which will be added to your website in the next step.
