Webcast: How to track views of your Breeze/Acrobat Connect recorded presentations

Note: This blog post is from 2006. Some content may be outdated--though not necessarily. Same with links and subsequent comments from myself or others. Corrections are welcome, in the comments. And I may revise the content as necessary.
I'm happy to present my first webcast, a short audio/video presentation showing a screen recording with narration of how to solve a problem. I plan to do many of these in the future.

This first one is a 5 minute video showing how to solve the problem of tracking how many people have viewed a Breeze/Acrobat Connect recorded presentation.

I discussed the solution in a previous entry, but some had asked for more details. Rather than write them out, I used this as a chance to put together the webcast.

I'd like to point out that these webcasts themselves are not made as Breeze/Connect presentations, since I ultimately want to make them downloadable to ipods. I've made this and will make future ones using Camtasia Studio 4 from Techsmith. They've been so kind as to give me a demo license and I look forward to creating many more.

I'll welcome feedback from folks both in what you think of the approach, and its design, as well as any ideas for future webcasts you may like to see. Of course, I especially welcome feedback on the topic itself.

Hey Charlie -- in case you missed it, Brian Rinaldi recently posted about a CFC he created as a wrapper to the Breeze / Connect API. Might be useful if you wanted to display the views for a recording using the reporting methods of the API. Like on UGTV for instance? ;)

Sounds interesting. Thanks, Bernie. If anyone tries that and confirms that it works, I'd love to hear that. In particular, it would be interesting to hear if it reports viewcounts regardless of whether the meeting has been moved to the "content" area as I described above.

Charlie, thank you for the useful video. I figured out that Acrobat has more power, that can be seen at the first sight. So, I've moved all my recordings to meaningful folders inside the Content area. No more trash in Recordings!
