Andrew,
 
The way you grouped them before by country per filename was perfect -- I goofed when I said they'd need the IP (they don't need the exact IP of each person). So is there additional development you'd need to do for this? If so, don't do anything yet. I was just trying to figure out how we could get something to them regularly without bugging you to query databases -- a horrible waste of your talents. :p
 
Thanks,
Ben

Hey Ben,
 
Yeah, I went over the code and the changes I made for the Kad data last time are still there. So, I just need to turn it on. As far as the format they want it in, I can just post it to a database and you can decide from there how you want to give it to them. mySQL should be able to export into any format they want except maybe xml.
 
The only difficulty I see is the ip's. Do they want country, filename per IP, because what I do is just count the ips. To keep the IP-country association would require a little tweaking.

any idea of difficulty? I'm trying to avoid the situation of saying something is possible, if it's not really.

Andrew and Sujay,

Remember that KAD data you provided Microsoft for their Stop Timer crack? Well, they may be interested in getting that more frequently. What would it take to set up a way for them to get that data weekly? Should this be a feed type of thing? What's the easiest way FROM YOUR PERSPECTIVE to implement this?

I'm not even sure they want it yet, I just want to know how difficult it is and how long it would take to get going. Anything goes: a comma separated thing is fine, xml is fine, etc. The only requirements are it contain filename, IP, geo location of country (I know this is a separate database, so this is probably where most of the work comes from), date (time if that's available, if not don't worry about it). And although they're only talking about this for "Stop Timer" for now, they would probably want this eventually for other titles, so some kind of interface where a MediaDefender Reporter could input filters for the specific search strings (or whatever is necessary to limit it).

Please don't do anything for this yet. Just think about what all this would entail and give me a ballpark estimate (I'll additionally pad out the time-frame, don't worry) and what the technical issues may be.

Thanks,

Ben
