Bitrate Bit rate of an encoded file. Plot 'Bitrate Plays' and 'Bitrate Play Duration' metrics with this dimension to see which bitrates get most plays and play duration. Leverage the insights to streamline the bitrate stack, and add or remove bitrates based on the engagement you gain or lose from it.
City Automatically set to the viewer's city based on mapping of the IP address to location by the EdgeScape service.
Connection Speed Automatically set to the viewer's connection speed based on the client IP address using the EdgeScape service. The field has the following ranged values: 1-256K; 256K - 1000K; 1000K - 2000K; 2000K-5000K; 5000K+.
Continent Automatically set to the viewer's continent based on mapping of the IP address to location by the EdgeScape service.
Country Automatically set to the viewer's country based on mapping of the IP address to location by the EdgeScape service.
Device Can store the type of device used by the viewer, such as iPhone, iPad, or PC. Use less than 10 values or the dimension will have too many values to provide helpful insights.
Error Code Set automatically indicating the error code that caused playback to stop.
Format Set automatically to the format in which media is encoded or delivered. For example, Flash HD, Flash dynamic, Flash streaming, smooth streaming, WMS, or progressive downloads.
Geo Asname The name associated with the ASN of the internet service provider.
ISP Set automatically to the ISP used by the viewer to connect and view your content.
Max Bitrate (Play) Set automatically to one of the following ranges; 0-550K; 550K-700K; 700K; 1000K; 1000K - 1500K; 1500K-2500K; 2500K+ based on the max bitrate at which media was viewed during a single title playback.
Max Bitrate (Visit) Set automatically to one of the following ranges: 0-500K; 500K-1000K; 1000K - 1500K; 1500K-2500K; 2000K-2500K; 2500K-3000K+; 3000K-3500K; 3500K+ based on the max bitrate at which media was viewed during an entire visit.
Network Type Network connection type. Possible values include mobile, DSL, FIOS, cable, dialup, IDSN, uverse and reserved. Note that this is captured via edgescape and a value might not be always available.
OS Set automatically to the operating system of the viewer's device.
Player Id Set the values in this dimension with the player Id; the name and version of the player. Use no more than 30 values or this field will return too many values and not be very useful.
Player Type Runtime environment type of the player. For Flash players, player type is preceded by "Flash_". Possible values include: Flash_ActiveX; Flash_PlugIn; Flash_Desktop; Flash_External; Flash_StandAlone; Silverlight; iPhone; HTML5; Android.
Player Version Runtime version of the integrated plug-in.
Rebuffer Reason Reason for rebuffer.
Rebuffer Time per Minute (Visit) The amount of time spent rebuffering divided by amount of time watching content + rebuffering multiplied by 60. This dimension is automatically set to one of the following ranges: 0s; 0-2s; 2-5s; 5-10; 10-20s; 20-30s; 30s+. With values for the playback experience of a single visit session and averages across all visits, you can use this field to determine how an increase in rebuffer time per minute leads to higher abandonment rates and lower play durations.
Rebuffer Time per Minute (Play) The amount of time spent rebuffering divided by amount of time watching content + rebuffering multiplied by 60. This dimension is automatically set to one of the following ranges: 0s; 0-2s; 2-5s; 5-10s; 10-20s; 20-30s; 30s+. With values for the playback experience of a single title and averages across all titles, you can use this field to determine how an increase in rebuffer time per minute leads to higher abandonment rates and lower play durations.
Rebuffer Time per Play The average amount of time spent rebuffering across all plays. This dimension is automatically set to one of the following ranges: 0s; 0-0.5s; 0.5s-1s; 1-2s; 2-5s; 5-10s; 10-30s; 30s - lmin; 1-2mins; 2-5mins; 5-10mins; 10mins+. This field allows you to determine how an increase in rebuffer time per minute leads to higher abandonment rates and lower play durations.
Rebuffer Time per Visit The average amount of time spent rebuffering across all visits. Set automatically to one of the following ranges: 0s; 0-0.5s; 0.5s-1s; 1-2s; 2-5s; 5-10s; 10-30s; 30s -1m; 1-2m; 2-5m; 5-10m; 10m+. This field helps you understand how an increase in rebuffer time raises abandonment rates and lowers play duration.
Rebuffers per Minute (Play) Sum of rebuffers divided by play duration. It is the number of rebuffers per minute of play time. Set automatically to one of the following ranges;< 1, 1-3m; 3-5m; 5-10m; 10+. With values for the playback experience of a single title and averages across all titles, you can use this field to understand how an increase in rebuffer frequency affects abandonment rates and play durations.
Rebuffers per Minute (Visit) Frequency of rebuffers in a visit.
Service Provider Set automatically indicating the CDN or delivery service provider used to stream the content. The CDN is identified based on a mapping of stream URL patterns to CDNs. If you see unknowns in this field, contact your service representative and provide them the stream URL patterns you use and the respective mappings to help us keep the configuration up-to-date. This field is best utilized to understand volume of traffic and the quality of experience across all the service providers you use.
Rebuffers per Play The sum of rebuffers across all plays. Set automatically to one of the following ranges:< 2m; 2-5m; 5-10m; 10-20m; 20-50m, 50+. Use this field to understand how an increase in rebuffers per play raises abandonment rates and lowers play duration.
Rebuffers per Visit The sum of rebuffers across all visits. Set automatically to one of the following ranges: < 2m; 2-5m; 5-10m; 10-20m; 20-50m; 50+. Use this field to understand how an increase in rebuffers per play raises abandonment rates and lowers play duration.
Region Automatically set to the viewer's state (US-only), or region based on mapping of viewer's IP address to their location by the EdgeScape service.
Server IP The IP address of the server from which the media was delivered to the client.
Service Provider Set automatically indicating the CDN or delivery service provider used to stream the content. The CDN is identified based on a mapping of stream URL patterns to CDNs. If you see unknowns in this field, contact your service representative and provide them all the stream URL patterns you use and the respective mappings to help us keep the configuration up-to-date. This field is best utilized to understand volume of traffic and the quality of experience across all the service providers you use.
StartUp Errors per Visit Set automatically indicating the number of startup errors experienced during a visit. Plot the plays per visit metric with this dimension to understand the effects of errors on audience behavior.
StartUp Time Set automatically indicating the amount of startup time experienced during a visit. Values include; < 1s; 1-2s; 2-3s; 3-5s; 5-10s; 10s+. You can plot the startup abandonment rate metric with this dimension to understand the effects of start up delays on audience behavior.
Stream Name Set automatically indicating the stream URL.
Stream Position Denotes the seconds elapsed since the start of the stream.
Time Set automatically indicating the timestamp at which content was consumed. This timestamp is converted to the time zone set during report pack configuration.
