    Data Collection API Sample

    In this sample, you will learn how to send information to the Data Collector so that you can get analytics data for videos that are not viewed in a Brightcove web or SDK player. Note that this technique should not be used if you are using the Brightcove web or SDK players, as it will result in duplicated analytics data.

    • The script for the plugin that sends data to the Data Collector
