The best apps to watch streaming videos – iOS

Streaming videos are designed to make life easier for Internet users because you don't have to download the video to watch it on your mobile device, making it very convenient and easy to use. This is proof that the internet creates new trends worldwide because you would never have imagined watching a video without downloading it first because of its size. With the advancement of the internet this has become possible and it is quite capable that in a few years no one will download anything to your computer, making all access to music, videos, movies through the cloud.

In this topic, we'll look at four of the top and most popular streaming video applications: Youtube, Vimeo, Dailymotion Video Streaming and Vevo. Needless to say, the giant since the emergence of this new market is Youtube (where its owner is none other than Google), but due to some limitations of Youtube, there are these other three applications that have come to meet this need.

After detailing through all these applications, we find that not all applications have the same focus and goal. For example in the case of Vevo, it is an application that only has video clips, meaning no other type of video can be hosted. Because of this, it becomes a more limited application in terms of the number of videos, but Vevo developers were able to create some very interesting new features that don't exist in other applications.

Already in the matter of videos in general, we have Youtube, Dailymotion and Vimeo. In almost every respect Youtube earns, whether in number of videos, make money by uploading videos, features. But Youtube is sinning about banning copyrighted music, meaning there are a lot of videos that were uploaded on Youtube with copyrighted music that they had to remove the music and leave only the image of the video. A few years ago this amazed many users who went to Vimeo and Dailymotion.

It is also worth mentioning that since they are of French origin, Dailymotion have videos that may not exist in these other applications. Finally, it should also be noted that after the new version of Vimeo (3.0) they removed many features already existing in the old version to change the focus of the video recording and sharing application.
