I have a query regarding how to track milestones(Video) in brightcove player by using html 5.

There is already predefined events available for PLAY, PAUSE, STOP, but for the tracking the milestones i am unable to track it via DTM.

Below mentioned is the code,which i have written for PLAY & PAUSE -

videojs('te-brightcove-trigger-video_html5_api').on('play',function(){
  var myPlayer = this;
  console.log('play');
  s.linkTrackVars='events,eVar21,prop21';
  s.linkTrackEvents='event22';
  s.eVar21 = myPlayer.mediainfo.name;
  s.prop21 = myPlayer.mediainfo.name;
  s.events = 'event22';
  s.tl(this, 'o');
});


videojs('te-brightcove-trigger-video_html5_api').on('pause',function(){
  console.log('pause');
  var myPlayer = this;
  s.linkTrackVars='events,eVar21,prop21';
  s.linkTrackEvents='event21=6,event24';
  s.eVar21 = myPlayer.mediainfo.name;
  s.prop21 = myPlayer.mediainfo.name;
  s.events = 'event21=6';
  s.events = 'event24';
  s.tl(this, 'o');
});

At a high level, after the 'play' event has occurred, you will need to bind additional code to monitor the progress of the video with something like setInterval. Within that function, you'd need to compare the "duration" of the video object to the "currentTime" in order to figure out if you had reached one of your milestones. You'd do some division of the two, currentTime/duration *100 to get a percentage to compare against and fire off a tag when you meet the milestone criteria.

Hi John T Smith​,

DTM is a Dynamic Tag Management Tool which is provided by Adobe Solutions to manage the user generated tags.

It was originally called as a Satellite.
