Video Killed My Data Plan: Performant Video Delivery On The Web
To ensure you get the most benefit from videos on your site, you’d want to know how well they perform.
- How quickly do the videos start?
- Do they stall?
- Do your customers even see the videos playing?
In this webinar, Doug will walk you through several possible scenarios to optimize video files for fast and efficient playback on the web. Together we'll test the video quality to ensure that it meets the required standard, and then look at tooling to measure video playback — to confirm that the video will start quickly and not stall for the majority of your users.
