Talk abstract:
"The use of video on the web and on mobile is growing. It is as easy as adding a < video src=”video.mp4” >, and you’re good to go. But, all the top video sites (YouTube, Netflix, Hulu) all stream their video. What do they know that we don’t know? Is streaming more efficient? Do I need any special equipment to create or serve video streams?
In this talk, we’ll learn the how to create and stream videos, weigh the pros and cons of streaming vs. static videos, and see how easy it is to get started delivering streaming content on the web or to a mobile app.
In this talk, we’ll look at the performance aspects of delivering video on the web, and how to improve the performance of video by using streaming instead of static videos."
