Video has become an integral part of the web and slow video loading times are no longer acceptable. But the video technology stack is complicated with many speed bottlenecks.

In this session we’ll explore the most performant technologies and techniques for processing video and delivering it to your viewers in a way that is consistently fast, including:

  • Player load speed (HTML5 and Flash)
  • Bitrate switching
  • Peer-to-peer video distribution
  • Content delivery networks
  • Fast and scalable transcoding
  • Better video file compression
  • Acclerated file uploads
