Swarmify Review: In my Swarmify SmartVideo review, I’m going to show you an alternative that lets you still retain the ease of use of YouTube’s upload system while gaining access to a clean, unbranded, and most importantly quick-loading video player.
Swarmify video solution focuses on QoE by embedding intelligence in the player that optimizes multiple CDN relationships and routes around congestion in real-time for a much more resilient stream tailored to each user’s playback experience.
Swarmify + WordPress video = perfect match
While users have been able to manually install SmartVideo on a WordPress site for some time, it’s now easier than ever. WordPress users can now install and manage SmartVideo right from their WordPress dashboard.
Expect when using the SmartVideo plugin
With SmartVideo, you can expect to see lower bounce rates and higher engagement due to 8x less buffering during video playback and 12x faster video start times. You can also expect reduced traffic leaks as your site’s visitors are no longer pulled to YouTube by links within the video player.
A quick walkthrough
After installing the plugin, you will encounter the Dashboard. If you have a SmartVideo account, click the Configure button to begin configuring the SmartVideo plugin. If you don’t have an account yet, click the Create an account button to sign up for a free trial.
