2017: The year that video browsing experience will be remembered

From the early days of “automatic video generation” of trailers for YouTubers and bloggers, to our scalable SaaS platform for publishers and VOD providers, we’ve come a long way.

When we started to work on Vid.Watch we wanted to help YouTubers and bloggers reach ever bigger audiences, to establish and increase their revenues from video content.

How did we do it?

Well, we’ve built an intelligent and scalable SaaS platform that analyzes and measures what type of trailer or promo will have the best performance for each video’s content, and which trailer will engage each type of user. We have established how to secure success!

We’ve put every ounce of focus and talent that we have on building the most beautiful and engaging video trailers; ones that only look and feel as if a professional video editor has created them. “Computer vision” and “deep-learning algorithms” are used to intelligently pick highlights from each movie, all the while making sure to take into account that different trailers engage different users: Not every customer responds to the same message.

We quickly discovered a market that benefits enormously from our smart solutions. We recognized that our platform – built-to-scale – perfectly matches large websites that uploads thouands of videos each day – and that means publishers and VOD providers, just like you.

Two years ago when we were imagining what Vid.Watch should look like on a publisher or a VOD site, it is in no way surprising that we knew video previews would play a significant role. It just couldn’t be any other way.

At that time online video had become increasingly important, consumers were already comfortable with using the Internet to watch TV, and Facebook announced that within a year or two the social network would be mostly video based. With an ever increasing amount of video content on publishers’ websites and VOD providers, it was clear that something needed to be done in regards to the online video browsing experience.

By incopproating the world’s top engineering and video experts we’ve managed to build the absolute best video preview generator available.

From our first clients, both publishers and VOD providers alike, we’ve seen amazing performance thanks to our solutions, and we are immensley proud to say we’ve managed to significantly improve our customers’ user experience and increase their user engagement.


We’ve developed our own highly optimized video preview player that perfectly handles any amount of video on any site, without putting any individual computer’s CPU or RAM under any undue pressure.

While online video content and some other video players can make your website CPU usage sky-rocket, Vid.Watch’s preview player plays any video format by delivering the perfect user experience.

Fast forwarding to 2017: Displaying video previews while browsing for video content has become a world standard – Google, YouTube, Gmail, Oath (Yahoo+AOL+..), Netflix, voot.com (Viacom18), India Today, Facebook and many more media outlets already use this video browsing experience.

This new video user interface uses video more broadly to make content viable in real time, helps viewers decide whether to watch a video and can be viewed almost anywhere. As publishers and VOD providers that upload dozens or even thousands of videos each day, you probably know you have less than 1.5 minutes to capture a users’ attention and get them excited about a title – that’s why introducing video previews into the video browsing experience is so valuable.

If you are still confused about what a video preview is – here’s an explanation: A video preview is a specifically generated video outline that helps viewers click more confidently by highlighting the story.

They aren’t like the traditional movie trailers that you are familiar with from your TV and movie theater experiences; nor are they animated gifs, which are mostly used for online advertisements. Vid.Watch’s proven numbers show that people, who see our video previews, not only watch more but are engaged more.

Our smart learning platform generates and decides which video preview will mostly engage your users, and the results – as proven time and again – are just amazing.

Vid.Watch’s video previews are available on any device, any browser and any App. They work within a minimal production time, can be launched on any website within less than 24h, and are generated by the most intelligent platform that makes everything look and feel like magic.

Publishers and VOD providers that want their online video experience to evolve to one that provides greater choice, better context, and a richer representation – that offer a more consumer-friendly experience – are already displaying our video previews.

As video continually plays a bigger part in our lives so will it continue to play an increasing role for both publishers and VOD websites, especially when they enhance the global video experience.

We are continually researching and developing the best video browsing experience generator in the world, and hope you enjoy Vid.Watch’s video previews: Happy browsing!

Vid.Watch. Always with you.
