Online Video Platforms (OVP) are platforms for providing live and recorded content on a website. Think of applications like YouTube, Periscope and Instagram. They are Online Video Platforms that allow you to stream video content as well as upload your own produced content. The OVP is responsible for hosting this for you and able to stream it on your behalf so you don’t have to worry about building any data centers or infrastructure. OVP’s are essentially cloud applications that end users ultimately interact with.
