I have a web site that is built as CMS, but it displays video. My problem is that I want to be able to generate stats for the videos being played.
The videos are being shown in flash.

I want to be able to see what video the user is watching, how long the user watches the video, and where does the user go next.

does anyone have any suggestions on how to accomplish this?

Gee that's a tough one. Flash is an object that get's downloaded to the user's browser. Once it's there, the only way you could possible track it is to have the video call back to the server - driven by user events (like clicks) or on a regular basis. It's been a while since I took a look at the programming language of Flash but I believe it's come a long way so it may very well be possible.
