Analytics Web Releases

Stable

10/23/2018

2.0.0

Added

  • AnalyticsPlayerModule class
  • Analytics.version returns the version of the analytics collector
  • Added support for native HTML5 Video playback via the HTMLVideoElementAdapter
  • Added specific adapter classes for each supported player technology
    • Bitmovin8Adapter
    • Bitmovin7Adapter
    • VideojsAdapter
    • ShakaAdapter
    • HlsAdapter
    • DashjsAdapter
    • HTMLVideoElementAdapter

Changed

  • Setup API has been reworked to use JavaScript classes and specific adapters per player technology

Removed

  • .augment syntax removed in favor of ES6 classes
  • .register syntax removed in favor of ES6 classes
  • window.bitmovin.analytics
  • window.bitmovin.analytics.Players
  • window.bitmovin.analytics.CdnProviders
  • window.bitmovin.analytics.PlayerModule
  • window.bitmovin.analytics.version
  • Automatic Player detection is deprecated in favor of explicit Adapter creation

Fixed

  • Video Bitrate is now correctly reported before the first quality change events in all adapters
  • Player version reporting has been improved.
  • Fixed incorrect handling of videoWindowWidth and videoPlaybackWidth in HLS.js and Shaka.
  • When loading a new video with Bitmovin Player v7 and v8, a new impression id was assigned before the last sample of the old impression has been sent to the server.
  • Fixed error being thrown when hls.destroy() is called because of a not correctly cleared timeout.

Known Issues

  • getPlayerVersion will return unkown for video.js if included via npm or requirejs
  • Not calling player.load in the same code-path after new bitmovin.player.Player() will skew the PLAYER_STARTUPTIME metric.
  • Bitrate Information is not collected when using Native Safari Playback using the HTMLVideoElementAdapter. This is due to the limitations of the Browser and not a bug.
  • The HTML5 adapters and the VideoJs adapter won't assign a new impression id on Analytics.sourceChange()
  • Destroying a Shaka instance will not correctly clear all event handlers on the VideoElement. Re-Using the VideoElement with another Shaka instance will lead to the impression being tracked twice
