Video is one of the fastest growing mediums on the web and in mobile applications. Video files have been shown to increase engagement, and can be a great way to deliver your message quickly. (And who doesn’t love animated GIFs?)

However, video that takes a long time to start up leads to frustration and abandonment. The same goes for video that stalls during playback. In this talk, you’ll learn best practices to optimize the delivery of your video to you customers, ensuring fast delivery and minimizing stalls for a great customer experience.

A nice follow up to last time, but cut short due to time constraints. Please speak faster next time 8+)

As someone building online video courses O found the talk incredibly helpful and gave me much better insight into the work I should be doing to make my users' life so much better

Great practical skills

Good stuff, however didn't explain how the conclusions were made between VP9 and AVC being of the same perceptual quality, before making assertions about file sizes. Of course VP9 will be smaller, but it needs quantified fairly.

Best talk of Oggcamp

Another great talk from Doug. Followed on nicely from his talk on optimising images for the web from last year's OggCamp. The information was interesting and presented in an easy to understand way. Liked the bits about using ffmpeg to measure PSNR and other metrics.

Really interesting information about how to reduce the problems with serving video, including some things you might not have thought about (e.g. video length doesn't matter that much, but bit-rate and encoding do). Could have done with a longer slot as 25 minutes meant that the streaming section wasn't covered.
