I am currently working on the Clicky extension
to enable this analytics service for PivotX weblogs.
Now there is also an option in Clicky to collect video statistics
, i.e. how many users played the embedded video's on your site, how many seconds before their first pause and how many watched the video to completion without pausing. This works for youtube, vimeo, html5 video, and viddler.
This is a neat feature, but it requires to embed some changes to the way the youtube and vimeo calls are handled. I have made a few changes to the Media extension in snippet_media.php so it detects if the Clicky extension is enabled, and if so to add the necessary extra information.
I have made every effort to make sure that if the Clicky extension is not enabled, that there is no difference from the original Media appearance. The only other change I allowed me is to support the url change for vimeo videos (i.e. instead of http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=12345678
this is now http://vimeo.com/12345678
, so now the way to pass this to swfobject changed slightly).
Now my request to the extension author: would you consider including this for an updated release of the Media extension?
