Implement seeking

  1. Listen for the playback seeking events from the media player, and on seek start event notification, track seeking using the SeekStart event:

    public void onSeekStart(Observable observable, Object data) {  
        _heartbeat.trackEvent(MediaHeartbeat.Event.SeekStart, null, null); 
    }
    
  2. On seek complete notification from the media player, track the end of seeking using the SeekComplete event:

    public void onSeekComplete(Observable observable, Object data) {  
        _heartbeat.trackEvent(MediaHeartbeat.Event.SeekComplete, null, null); 
    }
    

See the tracking scenario VOD playback with seeking in the main content for more information.
