Project description

Swift library that sends events to analytics collector.

This is useful if you are using a video player for which we do not yet provide a ready-to-use monitoring module.

Getting started


Swift Package Manager

In the Project Navigator select your own project. Then select the project in the Project section and click on the Package Dependencies tab. Click on the "+" button at the bottom. Paste the below url on the search bar on the top right. Finaly click on "Add package" button.

Or add this in your Package.swift

  dependencies: [
        .package(url: "", from: "1.1.1"),


Add pod 'ApiVideoPlayerAnalytics', '1.1.1' in your Podfile

Run pod install

Sample application

A demo application demonstrates how to use player analytics library. See /Example folder.



The analytics module constructor takes a Options parameter that contains the following options:

Option nameMandatoryTypeDescription
mediaUrlyesStringurl of the media (eg.
videoInfoyesVideoInfoinformation containing analytics collector url, video type (vod or live) and video id
metadatano[[String:String]]object containing metadata
onSessionIdReceivedno((String) -> ())?callback called once the session id has been received
onPingno((PlaybackPingMessage) -> ())?callback called before sending the ping message

Options instantiation is made with either mediaUrl or videoInfo.

Once the module is instantiated, the following methods have to be called to monitor the playback events.

PlayerAnalytics API

play(completion: @escaping (Result<Void, Error>) -> Void)

method to call when the video starts playing for the first time (in the case of a resume after paused, use resume())

resume(completion: @escaping (Result<Void, Error>) -> Void)

method to call when the video playback is resumed after a pause

ready(completion: @escaping (Result<Void, Error>) -> Void)

method to call once the player is ready to play the media

end(completion: @escaping (Result<Void, Error>) -> Void)

method to call when the video is ended

seek(from:Float, to: Float, completion : @escaping (Result<Void, Error>) -> Void)

method to call when a seek event occurs, the from and to parameters are mandatory and should contains the seek start & end times in seconds

pause(completion: @escaping (Result<Void, Error>) -> Void)

method to call when the video is paused

destroy(completion: @escaping (Result<Void, VideoError>) -> Void)

method to call when the video player is disposed (eg. when the use closes the navigation tab)


field to call each time the playback time changes (it should be called often, the accuracy of the collected data depends on it)
