Tracking Downloads

Hello,
My name is Dave Jackson from the School of Podcasting and I am plaing with S3. Podcasters are into knowing how many times a podcast has been downloaded. Is this something your package will provide?

Indeed it will. We have a number of podcasters using the service for just that purpose.

Here's a sample report showing downloaded files by URL:

I'm trying the service. I am comapring it to podtrac for stats. How this works is before the mp3 file URL I put a podtrac redirect. For example my last show is
http://www.podtrac.com/pts/redirect.mp3?1dfhs.s3.amazonaws.com/dfhs03_102708.mp3

Podtrac is showing I had 39 total hits to the file, 27 were unique. Your system for the same file is showing 12 hits. What could be the difference? Thats a pretty big discrepancy.

The cool thing is now there is a Wordpress plugin for S3, so if I can get a decent stats package you will have filled a large void.
