How SmartVideo works.
tl;dr: It’s pretty magical.
Once you copy and paste the text we provide you onto your site, SmartVideo scans for videos. Any videos found will be displayed in a clean, fast-loading player automatically, requiring no extra work on your part.
When a page with a video loads for the first time, it lets SmartVideo know to fetch that video, encode it, and store it on our network. From then on, the video is hosted on our global delivery network and served via our accelerated playback technology.
This means you can keep uploading your videos to wherever you choose to store them (YouTube, Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.) and placing them on your site. SmartVideo will continuously look for new videos and convert them automatically.

Who is SmartVideo for?
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?
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.
