The world map gives an overview where your customers are located and shows statistics per country.

special case

The USA (as a special case) are seperated in different regions, where each region counts individually.

You can choose from the following categories:

  • Playout/Ingests: how many streams where ingested and played back
  • Buffering Play Ratio (only available with H5Live metrics enabled): the ratio between buffer and playback duration over all playouts for a country
    • a ratio of 0% means no buffering
    • a ratio of 100% means no playback was possible
    • for countries like India with a high number of mobile connections and unstable internet connection, a higher buffering/play ratio compared to other countries is expected
  • Latency (only available with H5Live metrics enabled): the average playback latency over all playbacks for a country
  • Playtime average (only available with H5Live metrics enabled): the average playback duration of a playback event, shows how long a viewer will watch a stream
  • Usage (received/sent): the ingest and playback usage (in gigabytes) for a country
  • ABR playtime: the playback duration of streams with activated "adaptive bitrate" option enabled
  • ABR viewer: the total viewer count of country/region
  • ABR switches: the total amount of stream quality level switches for both - "upgrading" and "downgrading"

The area directly below the world map shows either a Top 10 country tabular list for the selected category or a region comparison chart when in World Regions View.
