Posting on behalf of WMDE's Public Policy and Legal Team.
WMDE's Public Policy and Legal Team is working on the cooperation with publicly-funded broadcasters in Germany on getting high-quality content (interviews, images, data visualizations) published to Wikimedia Commons as Public Domain.
Broadcasters are interested in the data on the usage of the content their providing.
Hence, we would like to be able (using a tool, query, etc) to get statistics on the usage of the content on Wikimedia Commons, ie. how many times the particular video, audio file, or a picture have been displayed, including a "preview" link embeded in Wikipedia article (i.e. not only how many the file page on Commons has been opened).
We are not aware of the way to get such data, so we would appreciate help with this.
Is there a tool/site which we could use to get the data we're looking for? Is there the API we could be using for this? Any other thoughts?
We are not interested in any tracking data, just when and how often the content is displayed.
We're happy to provide more details on our needs. Please either comment here, or be sending an email to bernd.fiedler [at] wikimedia [dot] de
