Tracking Played Videos

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi everyone!

I'm working with a client who offers project management seminars and training. They have 20 videos from different speakers that users can access after registering with their email address. They want to track these played videos as a goal in GA. 

I set 20 individual goals with the different video URLs as destination goals. However, they have a few other goals they want to track and I have maxed out the goals.

 

Is there a better way to track these videos or somehow combine all of them? Or is there a way to trigger a single goal with multiple confirmation pages? I'm open to any ideas!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

What video play do you use? YouTube?

You should track video interactions as Events, then create goals of type event. You should be able to either create just one goal to fire across all videos or create a goal per video.

The post below if for YT tracking. It's a good place to start with.

Let me know if it makes sense.

Hello Ranyere!

The videos are hosted and embedded from Vimeo. I looked at that link to see if I could figure out something similar for my issue. Do you think the answer lies in putting some type of code on each video page and then tracking that as Events?
