Show HTML5 and Videocodec

There is the possiblity to show the support of Flash. Realplayer, …
It would be nice if there is also an indicator for HTML5 and the supported video codec (h.264, Theora, WebM)

HTML5 feature detection has a ticket:

In existing browsers, video codecs aren’t detectable via JavaScript. Unless there’s support in HTML5 browsers, this won’t be doable.

Here is a little how-to: /detect.html#video-formats
perhabs this could work.

I added the link to the ticket, interesting. If you would like to work on this new feature, let us know style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif

Don’t forget that Plugin detection isn’t working for the internet explorer anyway ;-).

More detection = more bloat. At some point, the majority of visitors will be using an HTML5 browser and I was hoping to see a leaner piwik.js …

The detection methods methods described at and used by Modernizr should work on Internet Explorer, since it doesn’t rely on instantiating an ActiveXObject. However, I no longer have access to older browsers (e.g., IE5, IE5.5, IE6, or IE7) to verify this.

Add these detection methods to piwik.js or use Modernizr if already loaded?
Which features should be detected and reported on? Codecs is a more granular level than simply .

We now have a Media Analytics plugin that tracks Videos & Audio!

More information is available here: The plugin gives useful insights into media / video / audio analytics and adds many new reports, widgets and segments to Piwik.

Works with HTML5 video & audio, Vimeo and YouTube out of the box. Support for other players can be added easily and is documented in the developer docs. We are also happy to add support for more players upon request, please ping us. After installation the plugin will in most cases directly start tracking data see the setup guide
