Dailymotion goes SD during Covid-19
April 2, 2020
To prevent network saturation during the Covid-19 pandemic, video portal Dailymotion has rolled-out limits to video quality available for streaming on its platform.
Videos originally available in UHD (4K), Full HD (1080p) and HD (720p) are progressivelybeing streamed in Standard Definition (480p).
Dailymotion is also rolling-out a similar programme for French publishers using the Dailymotion video player technology on their own and operated websites. A vast majority of Dailymotion partners, among them L’Equipe, Le Parisien, Konbini, beIN Sports France, Radio France, CNews, Le HuffPost, RTL, Orange, Microsoft News or Le Point, have immediately joined the initiative to progressively reduce the video quality offered.
