Brid.TV vs. JW Player — Enjoy All the Benefits of a High-End Video Platform and Monetization Solution
Moving from a high-end video platform such as JW Player would be foolish if you had to settle for anything less. That is definitely not the case. Brid.TV offers all the industry-standard features you might need as a publisher or an advertiser.
|HTML5 Video Player||Google IMA SDK Integration|
|HLS Adaptive Streaming||VAST & VPAID Advertising|

Aside from all the above, Brid.TV’s lightweight player is lightning-fast and will put minimal strain on your website! That will come particularly in handy for video-heavy websites looking to improve their site’s performance, as Brid.TV’s player outperforms JW in the speed department.
Don’t take our word for it — see it for yourselves! We’ve done several comparative speed tests versus JW Player, and here are the results:
As you can see, if your priority is to maximize your site’s speed, Brid.TV’s player outperforms JW both with and without ads and prebidding.
But having a faster player is not the most notable reason you should opt for Brid.TV over JW Player. It’s that with us, you can get more for less!

Not just that, but we understand the value of convenience. That is why at Brid.TV, you only pay for the bandwidth you use! You won’t need to monitor multiple different variables anymore, such as impressions, streaming, or hosting, as all of those are unlimited.
No Contract Required
You’ve heard that right — you don’t need to sign a contract or make a year’s-worth of advance payment (we’re looking at you, JW Player) to become a member of the Brid.TV family. At Brid.TV, you pay your subscription monthly and can decide to cancel your membership at whim with no hidden penalties! We value complete transparency and are confident in the quality of our product.
