I have a number of mp3 files on a client's page. The client would like to track these events. The code to play one of the events is attached. The others are identical except for the filename. I have tried to track these with Google Analytics asynchronous code and also jQuery without accurate results. I am looking for specific code examples that would accurately track each time a file is played by filename.
Thanks for your help

You could monitor the access log on the server.  It will give you real counts of access to files.

Add an onclick method for the object tag.  When the file is selected update a counter value for that particular mp3 file.

Not sure about google analytics.  You can do whatever javascript you want.  If you can update the google-analytics stuff programatically then you can do it.
