Domstream \ click playback \ session recording solution

Hi all,
We’ve been testing new products for self-hosted analytics, and we require some key features:

  • Goal management
  • User session recording
  • Real time tracking
  • Funnel analysis
  • Event (action) tracking
  • Server side and client side API

Piwik seems like a great, community based project - and has almost all the features we are looking for. Unfortunatly, I couldn’t seem to find any decent (neither paid nor free) solution for the session recording.
Am I missing something? Is there a plugin \ 3rd party that allows self-hosted session recording for piwik?

Any response would be greatly appreciated! :slight_smile:

Thanks in advance,


what do you mean writing “session recording”?

Somthing along the lines of, for example…

why do you need a piwik plugin to do that?i had inspectlet installed and working just fine a while back when i wanted to check for adwords bots… insert the code and that`s it, what do you need piwik to do?.. session recording is not something that an analytic platform must focus upon, and i believe not even a plugin can do it properly,let alone an open-source one. because this sesion recording and playback is a pretty complex product which requires lots of work to be done… i for one did not like inspectlet that much, i preffered Visitpath which is software-based (not browser), much better playback system and is overall more feature-rich than inspectlet and also 1-time payment only with lifetime site-license system, not requiring a monthly fee.

I do understand, but right now we’re looking for a self-hosted solution which will include this specific feature…
Since there is a lot to be done, we are more than happy to pay for such product.

I disagree in regards to the open-source solutions quality comment, I think there are amazing open source products, many times better than closed source ones.

i did not reffer to quality, but ratherr it takes years to develop a good quality open source product vs a paid one…also, there are free open-source solutions for session recordings, but are just plain primitive compared to paid ones :slight_smile: it s a matter of manpower, 1-2-3 programmers working on free time vs 10-20-30 working full-jobs, etc…

anyway, good luck
