Implement seeking

  1. Listen for the playback seeking events from the media player, and on seek start event notification, track seeking using the SeekStart event:
    - (void)onSeekStart:(NSNotification *)notification { 
        [_mediaHeartbeat trackEvent:ADBMediaHeartbeatEventSeekStart  
                         mediaObject:nil  
                         data:nil]; 
    }
    
    
  2. On seek complete notification from the media player, track the end of seeking using the SeekComplete event:
    - (void)onSeekComplete:(NSNotification *)notification { 
        [_mediaHeartbeat trackEvent:ADBMediaHeartbeatEventSeekComplete  
                         mediaObject:nil  
                         data:nil]; 
    }
