If you host your own videos link their external URLS in the dashboard or via the API. The analytics reports are in your JW Dashboard under the Analytics section.

Hi Donni ,

Thank you so much for giving your valuable time.

If i do not want to see the analytics report in dashboard & want to see that in my web application , is there any way through which i can achieve such a task.

And yes , If I do not upload any video but I use link of external URL does it consume same space? I mean what is the difference If I upload video of 5M.B to Jw player & i add external URL of the 5MB video

Hi Jagir,

We currently do not offer access to the new analytics system via the API, however I do believe that it will come at some point in the near future. As far as your hosting and streaming limits are converned, it only applies to files hosted and streamed on our servers. Externally hosted content does not affect your limits.
