Trust No One: Cracking the X-Files of Content Security

As content producers, we want to believe in the innate goodness of people, from our trusted inner production circle to dispersed freelancers, all the way down to our viewers and subscribers. But experience should teach us to trust no one. Pre- and post-production leaks can jeopardize revenue, buzz and careers, yet most media and entertainment companies are failing to enforce clear policies around security. Luckily, the truth is out and protocols exist that present an ideal compromise between security, ease of use and cost, fitting into existing workflows and appeasing both Mulders (production teams) and Scullys (IT).

6 Helpful Remedies for Your "Buffer Rage"

Recently, Digital Trends reported that “51 percent of consumers who watch online or streaming video have been frustrated to the point of rage as a result of buffering.” I managed to make it through a whole season of Jessica Jones in one day, so it's not surprising to me that the slightest hiccup in streaming can make a typical viewer’s blood run hot.

However, as a person who works to deliver secure streaming video, I don’t have quite as much sympathy for the buffer sufferers as the average binge watcher or corporate user. In my experience on the support side, issues with the viewing experience are heavily influenced by what is occurring on the viewer-side -- not the OTT provider. Buffering, specifically, is directly related to a specific watching environment that in many cases is adjustable and within the viewer's controls.

Below are some ways viewers can concoct home or office remedies for buffering issues that don’t require teams of engineers to develop product around a problem that has several self-prescriptive solutions as the first line of defense.
