MySpace and RipCode announced that that MySpace Mobile users will now be able to enjoy MySpace video content from their video enabled mobile devices. Users will now be able to view videos theyâ€™ve uploaded or have marked as a favorite.
The MySpace Mobile sitereceives approximately three billion worldwide page views per month from more than 10 million monthly unique users.
In order to meet ever-increasing video demand, MySpace utilizes RipCodeâ€™s On-Demand Video Transcoding technology to optimize mobile video delivery and give users an improved mobile video experience. Real time transcoding enables MySpace to easily support several different handsets even though they require different combinations of codecs, bit rates, and resolutions. For MySpace Mobile users, 100 percent of their uploaded videos and most premium content, including branded channel such as TMZ, National Hockey League, National Geographic, The Onion, College Humor, etc., are now available on mobile devices. Because MySpace is transcoding video on-demand, there is no longer need to store the entire MySpace video library in multiple mobile formats, thus saving significant hardware, energy and storage resources.
Accessing and viewing video from mobile devices is a data intensive service. MySpace mobile users are advised to consult their mobile data plan to avoid excessive fees. MySpace mobile video quality, as with all mobile services, is dependent on individual device capabilities as well as network speed and connection.
