Streaming videos has become a way of life these days. From YouTube to Facebook, Hulu and Netflix, streaming videos are everywhere. But the thing with streaming videos is the fact that you need to be online to do so. You could argue that everybody is always connected via their smartphones and tablets or the fact that Wi-Fi is now offered practically anywhere, but the truth is, there are times when people don’t have Internet access, which is why bigger brand streaming companies are offing offline video access and you should, too!
People either don’t want to use their own data for streaming videos or are on the go and can’t always get Wi-Fi, which means offline video access is still an important feature people want. Netflix, Hulu and even YouTube offer offline streaming, allowing customers to enjoy downloaded videos and movies to watch later when they’re not on a network.
Since there’s still a demand to watch movies without any Internet connection, you should think about offering offline video access for your own customers or employees. Videos can really take up a lot of data, especially if they’re in HD or 4K, and many users are careful about how much data they use, which is why offline videos are preferred by many who would rather save their data.
If your company uses videos for training, communication or knowledge sharing, you might want to include offline video access for employees who aren’t always connected. CircleHD is a powerful and user-friendly enterprise video solution that offers superior offline support. Those using videos for educational purposes can take your training course videos offline using the handy CircleHD mobile app. This means they can learn anytime, anywhere and don’t need to be online near a computer to do so. And the app will track their progress and update their portfolio when they get back online, syncing everything they’ve seen offline so that they can continue where they left off.
Although it might seem like everyone’s online all the time, the opposite is true, which is why offline video access can be very beneficial for your enterprise and its employees!
