SPEEDbit (http://www.speedbit.com/), a 2008 World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer, announced today the 20th million installation of SPEEDbit Video Accelerator, the application that makes web videos from YouTube and many other video sites play smoothly without annoying buffering stops.
Dave Kaminski's (Web Video University) independent and unsolicited review of the product reveals how playing an HD video in the US over a very fast 20 mbps Internet connection resulted in 25 buffering stops, while watching the same video with Speedbit Video Accelerator installed eliminated those 25 buffering stops to just 1 split second stop. The video of the review has been viewed about 230,000 times and can be watched here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xfh3qvaQdgM.

SPEEDbit Video Accelerator (www.videoaccelerator.com) is a pioneering product of unique technology that improves the viewing experience of streaming videos from YouTube and over 165 sites by eliminating buffering problems. SPEEDbit are continuously developing its technology and in the near future, will be able to accelerate even more video downloads from different content providers.
Overcoming the media delivery barrierDelivering rich media to end user's machines is turning out to be a major challenge for even the biggest media companies. High quality videos (and many times even low quality videos) tend to freeze when streamed to end users, giving a somewhat poor viewing experience. Movies and TV series tend to sometimes take several long hours to download (see Bambi Francisco's article on MarketWatch - Why Wal-Mart's Movie Service is in Beta). These performance barriers slow down the adoption of the online rich media delivery platforms, in their quest to make content easily and readily available to consumers without the need to buy/rent/ship a physical CD or DVD.
Our Solution: SPEEDbit's Patented Multi-Channel TechnologySPEEDbit Video Accelerator supports videos from YouTube and over 165 sites and leverages unique and patent pending multi-connection technology to accelerate the caching of streaming videos, thus helping overcome annoying buffering problems. This product works under the hood keeping the user interface of the respective service in tact. For example when watching a MySpace video, the MySpace interface will simply show multiple leaps a head of the video caching bar, resulting in much faster completion of the caching/downloading of the streaming video.
Whenever a YouTube or other video (see full list of supported video sites) is being accelerated, a small message will show on the right bottom side of the screen indicating to the user that the acceleration is active. The main screen of the product also allows a user to make video searches straight from the desktop application – the video search is based on videos on various video sites such as www.youtube.com, www.metacafe.com etc. more sites are added every day.
