Support for Adobe Analytics tracking

The Video Viewer supports Adobe Analytics tracking out-of-the-box.

Out-of-the-box tracking

The Video Viewer supports Adobe Analytics tracking out-of-the-box.
To enable tracking, pass the proper company preset name as config2 parameter.
The viewer also sends a single tracking HTTP request to the configured Image Server with the viewer type and version information.

Custom tracking

To integrate with third-party analytics systems it is necessary to listen to trackEvent viewer callback and process eventInfo argument of the callback function as necessary. The following code is an example of such handler function:
var videoViewer = new s7viewers.VideoViewer({ 
 "containerId":"s7viewer", 
"params":{ 
 "asset":"Scene7SharedAssets/Glacier_Climber_MP4", 
 "serverurl":"http://s7d1.scene7.com/is/image/", 
 "videoserverurl":"http://s7d1.scene7.com/is/content/" 
}, 
"handlers":{ 
 "trackEvent":function(objID, compClass, instName, timeStamp, eventInfo) { 
  //identify event type 
  var eventType = eventInfo.split(",")[0]; 
  switch (eventType) { 
   case "LOAD": 
    //custom event processing code 
    break; 
   //additional cases for other events 
} 
} 
} 
});

The viewer tracks the following SDK user events:
