    append parameter to segment/fragment request

    stu_j_u

      Hi there,

       

      We are passing a username paramater to our request for the flash manifest files on our CDN. This parameter is set at the streaming URL level.

       

      e.g. http://server/{file}.{ext}?username={username}

       

      this ends up as:  http://cdn/filepath/media_manifest.f4m?username=1234-1234-1234-1234-1234

       

      This works fine when retrieving the f4m's on the CDN until the player moves on and plays the first fragment and then the parameter is dropped.

      Does anyone have a suggestion on how we can somehow retain or append the username on the fragment requests?

       

      Thanks

          Just a follow up to my question.

           

          Going back to a higher level on this, how have people managed to track a user throughout the playback experience? I would have thought this would be common?

           

          We are trying get an accurate view on the end user experience. What bitrates, stops/starts, buffering etc

           

          Any comments welcome
