I wonder if this has ever been discussed:
As far as i can tell the data for “download” in the analytics is based on a query of “wp_podlove_downloadintentclean”. The number of downloads seems to be based on a count (*).
If so, the label of download should be more a “download of fragments of an episode” and not “downloads” because this suggests that as many users have downloaded a full episode.
Or as a different approach maybe the query could be altered to user_agent_ID and media_file_id. In this case a download would be counted for a user who downloaded many fragments of an episode as one download.
Maybe i am completely wrong?
