Here are five critical questions everyone should consider before diving into video streaming app development:

  1. What content do you have?
  2. What platforms shall the content be streamed to?
  3. What are the viewers’ specifics?
  4. What type of events will you stream?
  5. What is the monetization you’d like to have?

Check out this bonus question that tends to be often forgotten:

What support model do you need?

Now that you already have a framework for your requirements, you’re up to research an experienced video streaming developer. In the field of video streaming, experience is a crucial factor.

A brief glossary of terms

During a video streaming app development project, one will meet a number of terms and abbreviations. To make it easier for you, here you can see some of the most common ones that you will definitely encounter on the way.

 

OTT
Over-The-Top platforms stream video content over the internet at the request and to suit the requirements of the viewers.
VOD
Video on Demand is watching video content when we want and not when the content provider decides to broadcast it.
AVOD
Advertising-based Video on Demand is the closest to the traditional television one can get. It is free for the viewer, but the streaming is ad-supported, and advertisements interrupt the content flow.
PPV
Pay-Per-View, the user pays a one-time fee to watch the content; with the purchase, the user also gets either permanent access to the video or a limited number of replays.
ABR
Adaptive Bitrate Streaming adjusts the video quality based on network conditions to improve video streaming over HTTP networks.
DRM
Digital Rights management is a method of securing digital content to prevent unauthorized use and piracy.
CMS
Content Management System is a tool for user management, billing history, authentication and authorization, notifications, etc.
CDN
Content Delivery Network is a geographically distributed group of servers that work together to provide fast delivery of video content.
