Dailymotion Expands White Label Service, Hopes To Compete With Brightcove & Ooyala

Typically, when you hear the phrase ‘white label video hosting’ you think of services like Brightcove and Ooyala, but Dailymotion is hoping to make their white label service, Dailymotion Cloud, one of the big names as well. To this end, today they have announced a number of new features including improvements in live streaming, DRM support, syndication with Dailymotion.com and Facebook, and additional money-making services.

Typically, when you hear the phrase ‘white label video hosting’ you think of services like Brightcove and Ooyala, but Dailymotion is hoping to make their white label service, Dailymotion Cloud, one of the big names as well.  To this end, today they have announced a number of new features including improvements in live streaming, DRM support, syndication with Dailymotion.com and Facebook, and additional money-making services.

Dailymotion Cloud first launched in September 2010, but has fallen behind as similar cloud-based video hosting services have risen to the top.  They expect that this relaunch will give them a boost.  GigaOm’s Bobbie Johnson reports that, “at the end of last year [Dailymotion Cloud] had 2,500 customers on the platform – not enough, apparently, to achieve its target of providing 15 percent of the company’s revenue.”

Dailymotion Cloud’s US managing director Roland Hamilton says, “We’re proud to compete with some of the web’s biggest video companies, delivering a highly affordable, flexible and robust cloud-based video streaming service.  Our expertise as a major independent video platform is a great bonus for all of our clients.”

Dailymotion Cloud lets users upload videos quickly, optimizes them for HD streaming, protects against piracy, allows for multi-format broadcasting, customizable players, statistics and more.  But what many white label customers will really like is that they offer a stream-as-you-go plan at $0.125 an hour with no commitment.  According to a release, “Beginning at 12 cents per hour for less than 100k hours of monthly video consumed or broadcasted through the service, prices drop as low as 6 cent per hour for usage upward of 10M monthly hours.”
