VOD multiple trackers in parallel

Scenario

In this scenario, there are two sessions running in parallel for two separate medias and using two separate instances of
MediaHeartbeat
.
This scenario is identical to the VOD playback with no ads scenario, except there are two sessions that are running in parallel for two separate medias. Each of these sessions uses a separate instance of
MediaHeartbeat
.
Unless specified, the network calls are the same as the VOD playback with no ads scenario.

Parameters

Heartbeat session

Parameter
Value
Notes  
s:event:sid
Unique session ID
A unique session ID that exists in all of the heartbeat network calls until the
trackSessionEnd
method is called.

Sample Code

Android

public class MediaAnalyticsProvider implements MediaHeartbeatDelegate { private MediaPlayer _player; private MediaHeartbeat _heartbeat; public MediaAnalyticsProvider(MediaPlayer player) { if (player == null) { throw new IllegalArgumentException("Player reference cannot be null."); } _player = player; _player.addObserver(this); // Media Heartbeat initialization MediaHeartbeatConfig config = new MediaHeartbeatConfig(); config.trackingServer = HEARTBEAT_TRACKING_SERVER; config.channel = HEARTBEAT_CHANNEL; config.appVersion = HEARTBEAT_SDK; config.ovp = HEARTBEAT_OVP; config.playerName = PLAYER_NAME; config.ssl = false; config.debugLogging = true; _heartbeat = new MediaHeartbeat(this, config); } @Override public MediaObject getQoSObject() { return MediaHeartbeat.createQoSObject(BITRATE, STARTUP_TIME, FPS, DROPPED_FRAMES); } @Override public Double getCurrentPlaybackTime() { return _player.getCurrentPlaybackTime(); } }
@Override protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) { super.onCreate(savedInstanceState); setContentView(R.layout.activity_main); // Bootstrap the AdobeMobile library. Config.setContext(this.getApplicationContext()); // Create first MediaPlayer instance. _player1 = new MediaPlayer(); // Create first MediaAnalyticsProvider instance and // attach it to the MediaPlayer instance. _analyticsProvider1 = new MediaAnalyticsProvider(_player1); // Load the main media content. Uri uri = Uri.parse("android.resource://" + getPackageName() + "/" + R.raw.media1); _player1.loadContent(uri); // Create second MediaPlayer instance. _player2 = new MediaPlayer(); // Create second MediaAnalyticsProvider instance and // attach it to the MediaPlayer instance. _analyticsProvider2 = new MediaAnalyticsProvider(_player2); // Load the main media content. Uri uri = Uri.parse("android.resource://" + getPackageName() + "/" + R.raw.media2); _player2.loadContent(uri); }
Both instances of
MediaAnalyticsProvider
and
MediaHeartbeat
track two separate sessions, each with its own unique session IDs. The two sessions in the Charles debugging tool or debug logs can be identified by using the session ID value. To display this scenario in Android, set up the following code:
// Set up mediaObject MediaObject mediaInfo = MediaHeartbeat.createMediaObject( Configuration.MEDIA_NAME, Configuration.MEDIA_ID, Configuration.MEDIA_LENGTH, MediaHeartbeat.StreamType.VOD ); HashMap<String, String> mediaMetadata = new HashMap<String, String>(); mediaMetadata.put(CUSTOM_VAL_1, CUSTOM_KEY_1); mediaMetadata.put(CUSTOM_VAL_2, CUSTOM_KEY_2); // 1. Call trackSessionStart() when the user clicks Play or if autoplay is used, // i.e., there is an intent to start playback. _mediaHeartbeat.trackSessionStart(mediaInfo, mediaMetadata); ...... ...... // 2. Call trackPlay() when the playback actually starts, i.e., when the first // frame of main content is rendered on the screen. _mediaHeartbeat.trackPlay(); ....... ....... // 3. Call trackComplete() when the playback reaches the end, i.e., when the // media completes and finishes playing. _mediaHeartbeat.trackComplete(); ........ ........ // 4. Call trackSessionEnd() when the playback session is over. This method must // be called even if the user does not watch the media to completion. _mediaHeartbeat.trackSessionEnd(); ........ ........

iOS

Both instances of
MediaAnalyticsProvider
and
ADBMediaHeartbeat
track two separate sessions, each with its own unique session IDs. The two sessions in the Charles debugging tool or debug logs can be identified by using the session ID value.
To display this scenario in iOS, set up the following code:
// Set up mediaObject ADBMediaObject *mediaObject = [ADBMediaHeartbeat createMediaObjectWithName:MEDIA_NAME length:MEDIA_LENGTH streamType:ADBMediaHeartbeatStreamTypeVOD]; NSMutableDictionary *mediaContextData = [[NSMutableDictionary alloc] init]; [mediaContextData setObject:CUSTOM_VAL_1 forKey:CUSTOM_KEY_1]; [mediaContextData setObject:CUSTOM_VAL_2 forKey:CUSTOM_KEY_2]; // 1. Call trackSessionStart when the user clicks Play or if autoplay is used, // i.e., there is an intent to start playback. [_mediaHeartbeat trackSessionStart:mediaObject data:mediaContextData]; ....... ....... // 2. Call trackPlay when the playback actually starts, i.e., when the first // frame of the main content is rendered on the screen. [_mediaHeartbeat trackPlay]; ....... ....... // 3. Call trackComplete when the playback reaches the end, i.e., when the // media completes and finishes playing. [_mediaHeartbeat trackComplete]; ....... ....... // 4. Call trackSessionEnd when the playback session is over. This method // must be called even if the user does not watch the media to completion. [_mediaHeartbeat trackSessionEnd]; ....... .......

Both instances of
MediaAnalyticsProvider
and
MediaHeartbeat
track two separate sessions, each with its own unique session IDs. You can see the two sessions in the Charles debugging tool.
