If you heard of Vid.Watch before, you probably already know how useful Vid.Watch is with dynamically generating superior animated previews, transforming them to their required dimensions and delivering them through a fast CDN.
But what about playing animated previews instead of static thumbnails on your web application? From small to large thumbnails, on any browser and any device, wether you’d like to play them on mouseover or simply autoplay them, they should be generated, delivered and played efficiently, offloading their processing and delivery from your servers and improving your website’s performance.
You can always do it yourself – hire a team of video experts to manually create video previews to any video you upload to your site, access them through a CDN and make sure to update these video previews when they change. You can then update your website and native apps code to autoplay them or play them on mouseover; Your manually-created video previews will be played, but the experience won’t be smooth, engaging and efficient; Without using a dedicated video preview player, low end devices may not be able to play your animated previews and other will get an intensive resource consuming experience.
To maximize your user engagement, you can develop a platform that will generate multiple superior video previews per video and user, programmatically learn which animated preview maximizes user engagement of each user and develop your own smart algorithms, so it will never stop improving.
