How to Set Up

There are two essential parts to a correct analytics setup

  • Analytics license
  • Collector Setup

Analytics licenses

Licenses in Bitmovin Analytics are used to clearly separate data. This could be a particular app or web platform you are running your videos on.

One of the most common use-cases for having multiple licenses is to separate development and production environments. Using different licenses for each environment ensures that testing data is separated from production data. Consequently, both data-sets will not interfere with each other.

Every account has a standard license activated by default. You can find this license and create more at Analytics -> Licenses


In order to use Analytics on your websites or apps, you have to allowlist the package name/domain of your app for which you want to use it. This is a security mechanism that protects your license from being used elsewhere.

So, if you want to use it on your website at, you have to add its domain accordingly. Subdomains of your domains (e.g. are allowed by default. For web environment localhost is also allowed by default

  1. Navigate to Analytics -> Licenses
  2. Select a License
  3. Scroll down to the Section "Domains / Package Names / Bundle Identifiers"
  4. Add your domain, bundle identifier or package names


The analytics collector listens to player events and based on that we send this information to our infrastructure. Based on the platform and player you are using there is a different How to set up guide


To allow for customised monitoring or visualising of the data collected with our Collectors, we offer two integrations. Below you can find the setup guides for each integration:
