Between the 1st and 7th of June, the video streaming didn't do a whole lot. More important things are happening in the world, and if we would be awarding any Weekly Golden Ball, it would go to the protesters addressing the murder of George Floyd.

  • Radiant Media Player deprecated support for IE11. πŸ™ (That being said, netmarketshare.com writes that there are almost as many people on IE11 as on Edge...)
  • Eyevinn Technology wrote a good article on the age-old discussion of Buy-versus-Build.
  • The IAB started a spec to deal with "Data Deletion Request Handling". (I guess we're not against it?)

Also, a question to you, the reader: which sources should we add to our tracking list? What is a website or product (related to the OTT industry) you are interested in? (Email us!)
