Usage Log

Post by Womble99 » Mon Feb 27, 2012 8:34 am

Is there any ability to track video usage via logging? I want to create some usage stats of what is popular (ie watched a lot and what is not being used much) so I can save some space by removing content?

I don't know of an easy way to do this with the log. You could look at the PlayCount field in TwonkyManager or another client which support this. Someone else may have a better suggestion.

I was able to create a container like the mostplayed playlist

<container name='Playcount' sortcriteria='-pv:playcount' createClass='object.item.videoItem.movie' class='object.container' >
<container buildon='pv:playcount' sortcriteria='-pv:playcount' createClass='object.item.videoItem.movie' class='object.container' />
</container>

However, the number it uses seems to be cryptic as to how many playcounts it really means
But, if you complare it to the playlists for Most Played, it is acurate, in its order
Just dont know how to convert the playcouunt number to a real playcount number for us humans =)
