2018 Video Developer Survey

Bitmovin's 2018 Video Developer Survey reveals interesting details about

  • streaming formats (MPEG-DASH, HLS, CMAF, etc.),
  • video codecs (AVC, HEVC, VP9, AV1),
  • audio codecs (AAC, MP3, Dolby, etc.),
  • encoding preferences (hardware, software on-premise/cloud),
  • players (open source, commercial, in-house solution),
  • DRM,
  • monetization model,
  • ad standard/technology, and
  • what are the biggest problems experienced today (DRM, ad-blocker, ads in general, server-side ad insertion, CDN issues, broadcast delay/latency, getting playback to run on all devices)
For example, the figure below illustrates the planned video codec usage in the next 12 months compared to the 2017 report.
