Notice how long the video takes to load and the irrelevant “recommended videos” that clutter the player.

Here's the same website with SmartVideo.

SmartVideo automatically converted the YouTube video and is now delivering it. No work by the site owner required.

SmartVideo automatically fetches your videos from YouTube, encodes them, and stores them. After that, the YouTube player is completely replaced and your videos are hosted on our global delivery network and served via our accelerated playback technology.

FAQ

Who is Swarmify?

Swarmify is a video acceleration company focused on bringing the streaming technologies used by the biggest names in the streaming video industry (Netflix, Hulu) to everyone in a simple package. We offer the worlds fastest video at an affordable price to all.

What is SmartVideo?

SmartVideo is Swarmify's mission realized: the power of Netflix-quality streaming made simple for everyone. The SmartVideo platform includes a professional, modern player making use of our proprietary network technology providing stall-out free playback at maximum bitrates.

Who is SmartVideo for?

We built SmartVideo with two groups of people in mind: developers looking to build a professional but simple video experience for themselves or their clients and small to medium-sized business owners tired of YouTube's branding and recommended videos cluttering their site's video experience and impacting their sales. You can find video hosting case studies on a few of our customers on our blog.

Who is SmartVideo not for?

SmartVideo is not for you if "free" is your only option. In that case, YouTube is probably still your best bet despite their branding, recommended videos, and purposeful intent of directing your visitors away from your site and onto YouTube.

Why should I choose SmartVideo over YouTube?

As we said before, YouTube is your best option if you are unable to pay anything for video delivery and don't necessarily need your site to appear professional. However, YouTube is not providing playback on your site free of charge. They are funneling users from your site with recommended videos and capturing your visitor's attention with their logo. If you don't mind losing a steady percentage of visitors and having YouTube's branding on your site, YouTube is a good option.

I use YouTube on my site. How do I transition to SmartVideo?

If you use YouTube on your site, your workflow is probably something like this:

  1. Upload to YouTube
  2. Grab your embed code from YouTube
  3. Place the embed code where you want the video on your site.

Once SmartVideo is installed, you won't need to change your current workflow at all to get a professional video experience on your site. SmartVideo places all of your YouTube embeds into our clutter-free player without any extra work on your part.

How do the auto YouTube conversions work?

When you embed a YouTube video on your site, the SmartVideo script sees the embed, downloads the file, and re-encodes it. From then on, the video is delivered over our intelligent network, through our player.

What kind of websites can I use SmartVideo on?

SmartVideo works on any site you can add script to the header on. For now, that includes (but is not limited to) any site you create with WordPress, Squarespace, or Adobe Muse, with support for other site builders coming soon. For WordPress users, we have a plugin that allows for even easier deployment. If you have any questions regarding the kind of sites we work on, just chat us up!

SmartVideo was made for site owners like you.
