Since the last update of VLC Streamer I noticed that the app wants to connect to Google Analytics.
I'm a bit tired of privacy issues with Google, may I ask why VLC Streamer has been changed to connect to Google ?..
The paid version of vlcstreamer doesnt do that. Have the pcap dumps of the traffic generated by my iphone and ipad running vlcstreamer.
If you are using the ads supported free version, I suspect it is the ads framework that the free version uses, which does that, since each ad shown in the free version being served from somewhere, and the ads provider want to track how many views and clicks each ad generates. Not something under the control of hobbyist software. They just sign a contract with the ads provider, to use their framework, to present ads in the free version, and get a small payment for x number of ads presented through the framework used in the free version.
So the solution is simple, purchase the paid version if you are worried about web stat analysis.
