Media Tools – Sprout Video support
When video is clicked, send tag to Drip — even when video is hosted externally on video hosting site.
After researching this with WPFusion, it appears the only way to track video clicks is if the video is hosted on our own server. But most all people host their videos with a remote video hosting company.
This is an essential piece of data we would really like to have.
We’re surprised this isn’t already a feature, because we believe tons of your clients would love this.

Our Media Tools addon (https://wpfusion.com/documentation/media-tools/media-tools-overview/) supports videos hosted on your own site, as well as YouTube, Vimeo, Wistia, Spotlightr, or any video embedded via the PrestoPlayer plugin (which also supports Bunny.net in addition to the providers above).
As far as I’m aware this covers about 99% of hosted video content, so at the moment it isn’t a priority to add integrations with new players.
But, if there’s a specific player you’d like to see us add support for, let me know and I can update this request so we can see if there’s any interest from the community in that specific player.
Thanks Lucas, I’ve updated the request to indicate you’re looking for an integration with the Sprout player specifcially.
Realistically… each media player we integrate with is a multi-month project, once it gets started. They’re complex, and they tend to break often.
To guesstimate our costs, it’s about $1500 per player to get started, and then ongoing costs are involved with each player API update.
That means we need three to five paying customers at minimum before starting a new player API integration, which doesn’t seem likely at the moment… especially since I’d never heard of Sprout before today.
You might want to take a look at one of the other players we support, such as Vimeo.
Or, consider hiring out this project for custom development https://wpfusion.com/documentation/advanced-developer-tutorials/how-to-submit-a-job-on-codeable-for-custom-development/.
We will leave the feature request up to see if there’s interest, I just want to be realistic that it could be many months or (more likely) years before we get enough people using Sprout to make it worthwhile to maintain an integration.
