For the home page, use a third-party player. Ray likes Kaptiwa because it’s a file host that is good for streaming, and it’s a player. It’s fast with no buffering and it gives you a lot of options like player colors and size, adding a logo and pop-ups. You can also add metadata for SEO, and a Google Pixel for retargeting.
Today’s show is made possible by Kaptiwa, a new video storage and player! http://www.raythevideoguy.com/kaptiwa
