    Data Sent to Analytics by the Brightcove Player

    The content of this page has been removed because:
    • It is confusing, as the data sent by the player does not generally correspond to the metrics returned by the Brightcove Analytics system (most of these metrics are calculated based on multiple pieces of data sent by the player, as well as data obtained from other systems, such as CDNs).
    • It is redundant, as the documentation on Data Collection API also contains this information.
    • If you really wish to see exactly what the player is sending, you can do so by opening a page with a Brightcove player in your browser, open the Developer Tools for the browser, and looking in the Network tab for requests sent to http://metrics.brightcove.com/v2/tracker - the URL parameters on the requests will contain all the data being sent to the data collector.
