Mobile Video Now Accounts For 21% Of All Online Video Plays
21% of all online video-plays globally were completed through mobile devices in the first quarter of the year, according to video technology company Ooyala. In 2012, that figure was at 3.4%; in 2013 it was 9%. The massive growth in online video consumption via mobile devices has changed the paradigm in content availability. Since 2012, mobile and tablet video viewership is up 532%.
82% of all mobile video consumption occurs on iOS devices, with nearly all of the remaining video views happening on Android devices. 48% who viewed mobile videos in the first quarter watched content for 30 minutes or more. More than three-quarters of viewers watched videos at least 10 minutes in length.
The findings continue to underscore the importance of mobile video consumption in general, and multiscreen strategies for broadcasters and brands in particular.
