My buyer’s guide on online video platforms (OVPs) is up on StreamingMedia.com.
Online video platforms (OVPs) encode, publish, and monitor on-demand and live video content. If your publishing needs are straightforward, any OVP will do, and price will likely guide your decision.

If you’re consider signing on with an OVP, or actively comparing OVPs, have a look.
