Visitors today expect fast, high-quality online video experiences, regardless of device, connection type, or location. Video services which fail to meet visitor expectations can experience lower engagement and revenues. Every incremental one-second buffering delay for video playback results in a six percent increase in abandonment rates.1
Cloudflare’s global Anycast network ensures fast online video experiences, with shorter video startup times and reduced buffering, no matter where your visitors are located. Flat-rate bandwidth pricing ensures predictable costs, even in the case of legitimate traffic spikes or volumetric DDoS attack.
Cloudflare’s content delivery network (CDN) has 155 data centers across 75 countries, including 21 in China, ensuring the fastest delivery of high-quality video content at global scale. We ensure fast online video experiences, with shorter video startup times and reduced buffering. Video files can be selectively purged from Cloudflare’s entire network cache within seconds.
Caching content on Cloudflare's network reduces the number of requests to an origin by serving static content from a Cloudflare data center, lowering bandwidth consumption from the origin. Customers hosting their websites with Cloudflare partners can either save or eliminate entirely data egress costs from their hosting provider to Cloudflare when dynamic content is requested.
Cloudflare offers a rich ecosystem of performance and security services tuned specifically for video to provide the best uptime and delivery. Advanced business logic can be applied at Cloudflare’s network edge to ensure special handling and tagging for video content on the Cloudflare network.
