Make it so that you can at least get their IP address or if anything their State or Country so then you can lookup a general location of where the viewers are watching from. In addition, maybe make it so you can exclude your IP address from the hits.

Google analytics should have this data.

I agree with Andrei here. The hitcount in SermonSpeaker is a very basic one, just like the one used for com_content. It's purpose is just to see which sermons are the most popular ones.
You can't exclude an IP here, but you can exclude usergroups (like administrators).

If you want more detailled statistics, there are a lot of extensions which do exactly this: extensions.joomla.org/extensions/site-management/analytics . Or you can use standalone tools which parse the server log directly.

Probably the best solution is to use GoogleAnalytics. SermonSpeaker has built-in support for this.

Hi,
actually I use a download component, which count every click of the direct downloadlink.
This is very useful because the counted hits are very meaningful.

It would be very nice, If this would also be available in SermonSpeaker.
With the actual used joomla-counter in ss, the sermon ist also counted if the visitor only open the details of the sermon and not the sermon itself.

The idea is to set a cookie with the sermonid and a lifetime about some hours
at clicking the download link or trigger the play-event of the flashplayer.
At visiting another sermon, the sermonid is also set into the cookie.
This would have 2 advantages:
  • Only 'real' access on the sermon would be counted
  • Counting of multiple access to the same sermon could be prohibited

Maybe there is the time to implement this still missed feature.

Wish a blessed year 2013

Hi Martini

You should have a look at Google Analytics and enable the plugin for the player in the SermonSpeaker options. I'm quite sure it will do what you wish and even more.

There is only one instance where we can't track the access, and that is when someone uses iTunes or a similar tool to listen to the podcast, since the sermons are in the feed as direct links to the files, and they need to be accordin to the rules for a valid podcast. The only way to track this hits is by using a server log tool like AWStats ( awstats.sourceforge.net/ )

Everything else just makes the SermonSpeaker code overly complex and doesn't really bring a lot of advantages in my opinion.
