This paper, which has been jointly developed by Akamai and Wuaki.tv — an OTT service provider — covers the importance of satisfying viewer expectations for a broadcast-quality experience by quickly and reliably streaming video online. It explains why it is challenging to do so and outlines best practices for online video delivery. It also explores the option of splitting traffic across multiple content delivery networks (CDNs) versus tightly integrating video player technology with a single CDN in order to improve online video delivery in a strategic manner. Finally, the paper shows how Wuaki.tv chose the latter option and boosted customer retention, customer referrals, and revenues as a result.
