Transitioning to HTML5? Looking to improve your ABR algorithms or set up effective A/B testing for your product or video platform? You’re in luck. This November at Streaming Media West, Streamroot will be hosting three talks on some of our favorite topics and answering your questions on your video workflow! Meet up with us from Oct. 31 to Nov. 2 at the Hyatt Huntington Beach!
OCT. 31, 1:30-4:30
Workshop: Making the Transition From Flash to HTML5
As the death of Flash draws near, now is the time to make the switch! This workshop provides an in-depth look at HTML5 players, their features and strengths, as well as the open-source media engine frameworks available on the market today. We start out discussing how to choose a player adapted to one’s use case, examining how several open-source solutions compare. We then use an interactive example to build features and optimize, offering tips and best practices along the way.
Nov. 1, 2:45-3:30
How to: Improving QoS With Player-Side Iterations and An Effective AB Testing Workflow
Dive in to how an effective AB testing workflow can make a big difference on video QoS. Whether you are a broadcaster or vendor looking to improve your product, this presentation shows what can be done with small player-side iterations. We start by looking at how to set up an AB testing workflow and then move on to practical feedback on how Dailymotion was able to improve QoS significantly in just a couple weeks and how Streamroot uses AB testing to continuously improve our solution.
Nov. 2, 1:45-2:45
How To: Choosing And Benchmarking HTML5 Players
If you can’t make it to our workshop, this talk offers a brief overview of how modern video players work, what you should look for depending on your technical and business goals, and different open-source tools available. We’ll discuss compatible formats, codecs and supported DRMs, user performance, the ability of each media engine to handle edge cases, and the performance of the ABR algorithms!
