Nginx log format and "PLAY" requests tracking


I’m trying to setup Piwik to track streaming audience from a Nginx server. I’m using the log analytics tool, but I can’t manage to find out the correct log format to make it work. Since the streamming protocol doesn’t register user agent and other stuff that the standard GET requests, my questions are:

  1. Does Piwik read PLAY requests?
  2. If yes, what is the good format of the nginx log so it can be readable?

The sample log file I’m using is attached.

Kind regards.


Hi Samuel

You can find all feature requests for Log Analytics tools here:!closed&component=Log+Analytics+(

Would you mind checking if your request is not already there, and if not, create a new ticket for the feature request ?

Also please attach sample log file that you wish to track. If you need to get it done quickly, please consider sponsoring our time to work on it. Otherwise we will get it done in few weeks/months. Thanks
