What SmartVideo brings to the table.

Modern, professional-grade player

Our SmartVideo player is beautifully modern, delighting users and developers alike.

Stall-free playback

No buffering in the middle of a video. Ever.

Speedy load times

No one likes to wait. SmartVideo starts playing 2.5x faster than YouTube on average.

Unlimited bandwidth/deployments

You shouldn’t be punished for serving high-quality content on your site. That’s why SmartVideo billing isn’t based on bandwidth, only video views. Oh, and feel free to install your SmartVideo script on as many sites as you’d like!

Automatic YouTube embed conversions

SmartVideo automatically scans your site for YouTube embeds, placing each video into our clutter-free player and delivering them via our intelligent delivery network.

Continuous streaming optimization

Throughout playback, SmartVideo intelligently switches between delivery networks, optimizing playback for each individual user.

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, YouTube) to everyone in a simple package.
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 delivery network switching 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, native 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.
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 stated directly above, 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 URL or HTML from YouTube, 3) place the URL or HTML where you want it on your site. Once the SmartVideo script is inserted into your header, you don’t need to change your current workflow at all to get a native 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 or Squarespace, with support for other site builders coming soon. For Cloudflare customers, we have an app that allows for even easier deployment. If you have any questions regarding the kind of sites we work on, just chat us up!
How many sites can I use my SmartVideo account on?
As a SmartVideo user, you’re billed per video view. That means unlimited bandwidth and unlimited deployments. So, feel free to use your SmartVideo account to power the video of as many sites as you want!
