Has anyone successfully used GA's Tag Manager's Video trigger options to determine when a Youtube video on a Community page is played?


I am now able to track Google Analytics when a user presses play on a Youtube video on a Community page. It isn't the prettiest code, but it is a works & is a start. Not sure why my code isn't pasting as code.

<apex:page showHeader="false" standardStylesheets="false" controller="DisplayTopFiveNewestMembersForPortal" sidebar="false" docType="html-5.0" applyBodyTag="False" applyHtmlTag="False">
(function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){ (i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o), m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m) })(window,document,'script','https://www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js','ga'); ga('create', 'UA-123274077-1', 'auto'); var tag = document.createElement('script'); tag.src = "https://www.youtube.com/iframe_api"; var firstScriptTag = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; firstScriptTag.parentNode.insertBefore(tag, firstScriptTag); var player; function onYouTubeIframeAPIReady() { player = new YT.Player('player', { height: '390', width: '640', videoId: 'M7lc1UVf-VE', events: { 'onStateChange': onPlayerStateChange } }); } var done = false; function onPlayerStateChange(event) { if (event.data == YT.PlayerState.PLAYING && !done) { ga('send', 'event', 'Video', 'Youtube Video Test2', 'test'); alert("Video Playing"); } }
