Any way to track embedded video views?

Is there any way to track someone watching a video that is part of a post? I am embedding from Vimeo if that matters.

Not out of the box – but here is a rough idea how it could work:

You could hook up the Vimeo Player API – or specifically, the “Play” event it fires. As far as I can see on first glance (never having worked with the Vimeo API before), this would need to replace the native Ghost embed.

You’d then need a script that captures the “play” event, identifies which member is watching, and store this information somewhere.

Bit hacky – but possible.
