Update: We’re pleased to announce that we have further sped up our video player ahead of Google’s Core Web Vitals update! Our dev team has separated certain elements into different plugins, enabling our player to load much faster. Those elements will load subsequently when needed through plugins. This has sped up the player which will have a positive impact on your Page Speed score! The web pages that load faster will be ranked better on Google.

But how does Brid.TV compare to other HTML5 players in the speed department? Here’s a quick demonstration against one of the most well-known names in the industry — JW Player!

In a comparative speed test, Brid.TV managed to outperform JW Player’s loading speed by a whopping 191 ms! This margin is huge in Google’s eyes!

As you can see, even with ads and prebidding turned on, Brid.TV still trumps JW Player’s loading speed.

So if you wish to have a speedy website and offer your visitors the best user experience, choosing a lightweight player like Brid.TV is your best option. So why not give our player a whirl and see for yourself? No strings attached!
