To enable our Analytics Service for your existing player license, simply click the button "Enable Analytics for this license".
You will be asked to select an analytics license that will be linked to your player license. This analytics license will be used by the player to track the collected data.
As your analytics service provides you with realtime information, as soon as you enable this feature you will be able to monitor your video playback deployment right away in the analytics dashboard of your Bitmovin account.
If you don't want to use our Analytics service along with your player license, you can disable it accordingly by clicking on "Disable Analytics".
All domains that are whitelisted for the player license you enabled the Analytics tracking for, are implicitely whitelisted for the assigned analytics license as well.
