On-demand video streaming apps possess a huge amount of video content, maintaining such a vast database in itself is a hell of a task.

At the same time, you need to check on the app performance since with such an extensive database the app gets heavier and slows down the performance.

High-Quality Video Streaming

Serving worldwide users with high-quality video streaming is also an obstacle to the development of an on-demand video streaming platform.

Poor user experience and low-quality video streaming annoy users which translate into app uninstallation from their mobile devices.

Recommending Relevant Video Content
