I need to track what flash videos are viewed on CDs being distributed for marketing.

How do you code a CD to report use data to our website? The CDs (there will be quarterly releases) contain a number of Flash video demos. We just want viewing data.  Nothing specific about the user. What we need is: the IP adresss of the user,  the name of the video, the date and time the video was played and for how long . All this would be reported to our site and compiled as a history in a database for cumulative analysis and be transparent (invisible to the user).  Is it embedded in the the Flash, the player, or some other file on the CD? Is there a software package available, or is this a custom code? It also has to work when the disc is played  PC and Mac.
