Analytics data tracks statistics, such as plays and views, and helps creators to understand the video usage and improve the viewer experience.


The use of the analytics technology does not record personally identifiable information.

To enable the consent dialog, you can use the Player Generator UI.

By default, this consent dialog is not toggled, meaning that statistics and analytics are automatically collected.

To comply with data protection laws, you should toggle this consent dialog in the player generator using the steps outlined below.

If you do not want the consent dialog to be shown to viewers, you can enable or disable analytics using the player's JavaScript API, following these steps.


The following steps show you how you can toggle the consent dialog using the player generator.
