Established French publishers join Dailymotion in an effort to avoid network saturation

PARIS – 2 April, 2020 – To prevent network saturation during the COVID-19 pandemic, Dailymotion has rolled-out limits to video quality available for streaming on, since Friday, 20th March.

Videos originally available in UHD (4K), Full HD (1080p) and HD (720p) are progressively streamed in Standard Definition (480p). Dailymotion is today rolling-out a similar program for French publishers using the Dailymotion video player technology on their own and operated websites.

A vast majority of Dailymotion partners, among them L’Equipe, Le Parisien, Konbini, BeinSPORTS France, Radio France, CNews, Le HuffPost, RTL, Orange, Microsoft News and Le Point have immediately joined the initiative to progressively reduce the video quality offered.

Dailymotion would like to thank all the partners participating in the launch of the program.
