Dailymotion selects Streamroot to control cost and QoS for delivery over large scale OTT

Streamroot has announced that video hosting platform Dailymotion has selected Streamroot to provide its peer-to-peer delivery technology for both its live and VoD content.

With an increasing amount of video available on over higher-quality links and devices, delivery is becoming increasingly cost-prohibitive. The Streamroot services suite has proven to:
● Offload as much as 90% of content from content delivery networks (CDNs)
● Improve performance by optimizing delivery across last mile connections
● Increase audience engagement on longer VoD content
● Scale indefinitely without added CDN expense
● Lower the total cost of running a multi-million audience infrastructure

Said Pierre-Yves Kerembellec, Dailymotion's Head of Video Architecture, “With over 100 million video views per day, ensuring robust video delivery is of paramount importance to Dailymotion.”  “Streamroot offers us this possibility. Their technology scales naturally to exploding audiences and to unpredictable traffic spikes, whilst at the same time keeping our delivery costs down and ensuring
excellent quality.”

Guillaume du Pontavice, Streaming Experience Architect at Dailymotion adds, “We have worked closely with Streamroot on both  delivery and on questions surrounding our video player. The integration with Streamroot’s technology was seamless, and their expertise in HTML5 video has proven highly valuable.”

The initial rollout will support Dailymotion’s HTML5 web player. Mobile and other platforms are expected to be launched soon.
