DTM is a tool that allows you to do things faster. We can track HTML5 videos using event based rules in DTM. However it doesn't have any out of the box functionality to track videos provided by other video providers (Brightcove, Youtube, Vimeo, VideoJS, Flowplayer, etc.)

If someone uses the video service that has some sort of JavaScript API (Brightcove, Youtube, Vimeo, VideoJS, Flowplayer, etc.), we can use DTM to add the API code to listen for the different video events. It is required to load the code you need in a page load rule or App measurement or s_code file (make sure it loads at the correct spot, i.e. page top or page bottom), and that will setup the API and/or listeners to track the videos. Then we have to define what we want to do when it comes to capturing and sending the video data. We can use the Media Module implementation which won't require any additional settings in DTM.

Please see the following steps for tracking the "YouTube Video" through Media Module Implementation.

Step 1: YouTube videos can be embeded in a webpage either through an iframe or an object tag. 

Object Embed: Embed the video with with the API turned on e.g. http://www.youtube.com/v/8pB5sRsX5OU?fs=1&rel=0&enablejsapi=1&playerapiid=myytplayer on your webpage.

Note - Please make sure you don't have two tags with the same ID, but make sure the tag has an ID that matches the playerapiid parameter

 

    <p>Sample YouTube in OBJECT embed tag</p>
     <object id="myytplayer" width="425" height="344" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000">
        <param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/AhgtoQIfuQ4?fs=1&rel=0&enablejsapi=1&playerapiid=myytplayer"></param>
        <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param>
        <param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param>
        <embed id="myytplayer2" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/AhgtoQIfuQ4?fs=1&rel=0wcv8zQo9HyU&enablejsapi=1&playerapiid=myytplayer2" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed>
    </object>

Iframe Embed: Embed the video in an iframe with with the API turned on e.g. http://www.youtube.com/v/8pB5sRsX5OU?fs=1&rel=0&enablejsapi=1 on your webpage.

Note: It must provide an "Id" to the iframe. Please see below code for more help

<p>YouTube  video in iframe embed tag</p>
<iframe id="player1" frameborder="0" width="425" height="344" allowfullscreen="1" title="YouTube video player" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/wcv8zQo9HyU?enablejsapi=1">

Step 2: Add Adobe Analytics Media tracking module to your Appmeasurement (or similar). It should be placed somewhere after your config section and before the "DO NOT ALTER ANYTHING BELOW THIS LINE !". In case of legacy implementation, you need to have code version of H.15.1 or newer. You'll get this Media module from your Adobe Analytics Account by going to the following: Admin ----> Code Manager---->App Measurement ------> App Measurement Media Module.js

Poznámka:

If you do not see 'Code Manager' under Admin you do not have access. To get access, have an Admin user add your account to a group that has access to the Code Manager. 

Step 3: Add the following code into Head of the web page on which youtube video is embedded just below DTM header code.

    <script type="text/javascript" src="https://www.youtube.com/iframe_api"></script>
     
    <script type="text/javascript">
        var video_obj=null;
        var video_length=0;
        var video_name='Movie name ' + new Date().getTime();
     
     
        // 3. This function creates an <iframe> (and YouTube player)
        //    after the API code downloads.
        var player;
        function onYouTubeIframeAPIReady() {
            console.log('*** iFrame embed onYouTubeIframeAPIReady');
     
            player = new YT.Player("player1", {
              
              events: {
              
                'onReady': onPlayerReady,
                'onStateChange': onPlayerStateChange
              }
            });
        }
     
        // 4. The API will call this function when the video player is ready.
        function onPlayerReady(event) {
            // event.target.playVideo();
            console.log('*** iFrame embed onPlayerReady ', player);
        }
     
        // 5. The API calls this function when the player's state changes.
        //    The function indicates that when playing a video (state=1),
        //    the player should play for six seconds and then stop.
        var done = false;
        function onPlayerStateChange(event) {
            console.log('*** iFrame embed onPlayerStateChange ' + event.data + ' --- YT Player state ' + YT.PlayerState.PLAYING, player.getCurrentTime(), player);
            /*
            if (event.data == YT.PlayerState.PLAYING && !done) {
                setTimeout(stopVideo, 6000);
                done = true;
            }
            */
            video_name = player.getVideoData();
            video_name = video_name.title;
            video_length = player.getDuration();
     
            // if(event.data === YT.PlayerState.PLAYING && (event.data === 1 || event.data < 0)){
            if((event.data === 1 || event.data < 0) && YT.PlayerState.PLAYING === 1){
                    //*-* PLAY
                    console.log("*-* Player is on play mode " + event.data + ' ' + player.getCurrentTime(), s);
                    if(player.getCurrentTime() === 0) {
                        s.Media.open(video_name, video_length, 'Youtube Object Embed');
                        s.Media.play(video_name, player.getCurrentTime());
                    } else {

                    s.Media.close(video_name);
                }
        }
      
            function onYouTubePlayerReady(playerId) {
                video_obj=document.getElementById(playerId);//playerId
     
                video_obj.addEventListener("onStateChange", "onytplayerStateChange");
     
                video_length= video_obj.getDuration();
     
                console.log('*-* Youtube Video Ready - in call back function --- ' + playerId, 'video duration= ' + video_obj.getDuration(), 'video current time= ' + video_obj.getCurrentTime());
            }
     
     
            function onytplayerStateChange(newState) {
                console.log("*-* Player's new state: " + newState);
                //-1 --> <0 is not started
                if(newState===1){
                    //*-* PLAY
                    console.log("*-* Player is on play mode " + newState + ' ' + video_obj.getCurrentTime(), s);
                    if(video_obj.getCurrentTime() === 0) {

                    s.Media.close(video_name);
                }
            }
     
        </script>

Step 4: After you insert the code in your project, you need to map the conversion variables and events you are using to track video. Please add the following code in AppMeasurement or s_code file .

    s.loadModule("Media");
     
    s.Media.onLoad = function() {
        console.log('**** MEDIA module loaded');
    	/*Configure Media Module Functions */
     
    	s.Media.autoTrack= false;
    	s.Media.trackWhilePlaying=false;
    	// s.Media.trackSecond=0; // set to 30 if milestone in seconds
    		console.log('**** MEDIA module loaded1');
    	s.Media.completeByCloseOffset = true; //*** Enabled if you want to allow the video to be completed a few seconds before the actual end of the video
    	s.Media.completeCloseOffsetThreshold = 10; 
    	
    	s.Media.trackVars="events,eVar16,eVar17"; //**NOTE: Add additional data which will be pushed either in the plugin or on the page
    	s.Media.trackEvents="event16,event17,event18,event19,event20,event21"; //**NOTE: Add additional data which will be pushed either in the plugin or on the page
    	s.Media.trackMilestones="25,50,75";
    	s.Media.playerName="My TEst You tube video tracking";
    	s.Media.segmentByMilestones = false;
    	s.Media.trackUsingContextData = true;
      	console.log('**** MEDIA module loaded2');
    	s.Media.contextDataMapping = {
    		"a.media.name":"eVar16",
    		"a.media.segment":"",
    		"a.contentType":"eVar17",
    		"a.media.timePlayed":"event18",
    		"a.media.view":"event16",
    		"a.media.segmentView":"",
    		"a.media.complete":"event17",
    		"a.media.milestones": {
    			25:"event19",
    			50:"event20",
    			75:"event21"
    		}
    	}
      	console.log('**** MEDIA module loaded3');
    	/*
    	* can use the below IF wanna pass additional data --- Need to update s.Media.trackVars --- BUT we could potential set it on above var and avoid using the below
    	*/
    	s.Media.monitor =function(s, media){
      console.log('**** MEDIA module loaded4');
        console.log(media);
    		//https://marketing.adobe.com/resources/help/en_US/sc/appmeasurement/video/video_mediamonitor.html
    		console.log('in the video monitor, can help add additional evar, prop or events', media);
    		if(media.event == "OPEN") {
    			s.contextData = s.Media.contextDataMapping
    			s.Media.track(media.name);
    		} else if(media.event == "MILESTONE") {
    			s.contextData = s.Media.contextDataMapping
    			s.Media.track(media.name);
    		} else if(media.event == "CLOSE") {
    			s.contextData = s.Media.contextDataMapping
    			s.Media.track(media.name);
    		}
    	}
     
     
    }
