This API is used to query the download links of playback statistics files.

  • You can query the download links of playback statistics files in last 30 days.
  • Every day, VOD will analyze CDN request logs of the previous day and then generate a playback statistics file.

  • Notes on playback times:
    1. HLS file: VOD counts playback times when accessing M3U8 files, but not when accessing TS files.
    2. Other files (MP4 files for example): VOD does not count playback times when the playback request carries the range parameter and the start parameter in range is not 0. In other cases, VOD counts playback times.
  • Statistics on playback devices: VOD counts playback times on mobile clients when the playback request carries the UserAgent parameter which includes an identifier such as Android or iPhone. In other cases, VOD counts playback times on PC clients.
