Zoom in for more insight

By clicking on a bar in one of the supported widgets an overlay window is being opened. There you can gain more insight about that specific diagram by doing your own research. The table shows the TOP 10 (highest) ranked results depending on the metric and your selected search parameters.


Metrics like max concurrent viewer, latency or other aggregated metrics do rank by their individual parameter of significance. (e.g. viewer count, latency in seconds, etc.)

(A) Chosen Metric Category horizontal bar (orange) data category: A list of the available data categories, like Playout/Ingest, a specific transfer protocol you are interested in (e.g. H5Live) or individual metrics.


The available category options depend on the selected zoom-widgets.
Here is another example for ABR switches from the worldmap tab: Screenshot

(B) Filtering by Data Features vertical bar (blue) data feature: This is a data feature you are interested in (e.g. streamname, referrer, country, etc.). These can be used to switch between the metric data to evaluate the results under different points of view.

Most of the zoom menus have these main filters:

  • IP
  • Stream name
  • City
  • Country
  • Referrer

While Buffering Ratio, Latency, Playtime Average, ABR Viewers, ABR Playtime and ABR Switches and other individual metrics also contain filters for:

  • OS
  • Player version
  • Browser

(C) Table Columns represent the chosen filter and show the corresponding data. You can sort all entries by clicking on a header column.

(D) Selected Time Range displays the start and end of the selected time range.

Zooming into an usage diagram opens detailed information about the top 10 with biggest playout or ingest traffic within a specific time frame. (e.g. the top 10 countries with the highest stream data traffic)

Protocol Usage

The protocol usage shows the traffic for every protocol individually (e.g. H5Live, RTMP, HLS and H5Live Token).

Max Concurrent Viewer

The max concurrent viewer zoom table ranks by the top 10 results by their concurrent viewer counts for the chosen data feature. (e.g. the top 10 streams with the highest count of concurrent viewer)

Zoom on Worldmap

This Zoom/Breakdown menu is shown when clicking on a marked country in the Zoom Region View or Country View. It represents a more detailed overview of this countrys Top 10 results by the selected metric category and filter option.

Playout/Ingest (Usage)

Like the usage details from home tab, but only for the selected country.

Aggregated Metrics

The following aggregated metrics provide more insight for different use cases regarding your stream quality:

Buffering Play Ratio

  • the ratio between stream buffering and fluent play back (ranked by highest ratio)


  • the average and total play back time (ranked by highest average play back time)


  • the average and total latency from ingest to playout (ranked by highest latency)


  • successfull profile switch count
  • playtime per device per profile
  • viewers per profile

Zoom on H5Live

Playback Count

Shows the playback count per OS or per browser.

Player Versions

You can check detailed information about the use of different H5Live player versions, ranked by the most occuring player events. (e.g. pause, play, stop)

Player Startup Times

Here you can find details about the initial loading times of the player, ranked by the longest average first.

Player Loading Counts

This insight provides information about the frequency of player loading events. Note, that each country is viewed separately.

Status/Error Codes

Check more defined details on occuring status and error codes, ranked by their counts.

Reasons for Stopping

Use this details to see which stopping reasons the players had, ranked by how often they occur

Aggregated Metrics

The following aggregated metrics provide more insight for different use cases regarding your stream quality:


  • average and total latency

Buffering Ratios

  • average and total buffering ratios

Zoom on ABR

Profile Details

The ABR profiles represent different resolutions for the playback, based on the video height (e.g. 360p, 720p, 1080p) :

Playtime per Profile

  • playtime per resoultion, ranked by longest playtime

Viewer Count per Profile

  • active viewers per profile (not concurrent viewers)

Profile Switch Details

Insights for the ABR profile switches provide useful information to determine general stream or bandwidth quality:

Success Rate

  • relation between successed and failed up and down profile switches

Up and Down Switches

  • more distinct insights of different profile switch categories (e.g. only up or down switches)
