Dailymotion scales down bandwidth

PARIS – March 20, 2020 – In an effort to support our European neighbours during these difficult times and to avoid the saturation of the networks, Dailymotion has decided to limit the required bandwidth to stream from its platform.

Videos originally available in UHD (4K), Full HD (1080p) and HD (720p) will be streamed in Standard Definition (SD) for at least 3 weeks.

We will be rolling out this bandwidth policy progressively starting Friday, 20th March.
