Analyzing 360-degree video users is beneficial for 360-degree video application development. The analysis can be done with logged user data. In this paper, we argue that MQTT is a conventional technology for distributed logging of mobile 360-degree video users. MQTT not only saves resources also allows communication from the logging server to mobile clients in various networking conditions relatively easy. We constructed a proof of concept to show the feasibility of the approach. As log analysis examples, the proof of concept visualizes results of the most popular region of interest analysis and k-means clustering. The used research method is design science.
