    Thank you for your interest.

    I’ll soon post a new article to help installation process of the free edition.

    Let me try to give you some tips here.

    In order to track the events, Wowza Module sends following information to Google Analytics.

    - Event:Category : Video
    - Event:Action : Play, Stop, Seek, Pause, Publish, UnPublish
    - Event:Label : StreamPath
    - Event:Value : Played(Published) times(on Stop / UnPublish)

    IP address, user agents, and more infomation are sent together.


    You can specify particular access points or streams with Google Analytics filters.

    Example:
    Google Analytics > Admin > View > Filter > New Filter
    -. Include
    -. IP Address
    -. Filter Pattern : Insert range of IP addresses
