How to Set Custom Tracking Pixels for All your Players under your Company

Overview

The Company page allows you to add custom metadata pairs of parameters and values. The parameter name field supports our Player event mechanism allowing you to trigger the a defined value when one of your company Players reaches that event.

For example: If I set the Company Metadata property to 'VIDEO_START' and the value to a URL. Whenever one of my company players triggers the Video Start event, a GET request will be sent to the defined URL. 
This of course will apply to all of the Players under this company.
