We have an external hosting company for our video files. They provide us with detailed access statistics e.g. The duration how long how many people have seen a specific video. This is quite interesting because you can see how interesting a topic was or how fast people have switched off the video.
Unfortunately they do only video hosting and not the hosting of audio files.
With the limited bandwidth need for audio we could also host it on our own servers. But there is by far not that good access statistic like we have for video.
I have googled quite a lot but did not find anything similar to what I saw about the video access statistics.
Of course when I just provide a link to the mp3 file I can see only one line in my apache log file. Are there other solutions e.g. with a dedicated player that sends back some feedback about each second/10 seconds/minute that the user was listening to?
Or any other idea?
Am I right with my question at this Site "Pro Webmasters"? Thanks for any kind of feedback to this topic. I highly appreciate it.
