Mobile and tablet viewership now accounts for more than 10% of all online video plays, the most ever recorded in the quarterly Global Video Index, which is based on data from Ooyala’s customer base.
Tablet viewership in particular increased in the quarter, growing 33%.
Below, additional key findings from the report.
Live vs. VOD Time Per Play
- Desktop viewers watched live video 13X longer than video-on-demand last quarter, tablet video viewers watched live video 4X longer, and mobile audiences tuned in to live video 3X longer.
- Globally, desktop viewers watched live news, sports, and special events for an average of 40 minutes per play in 1Q13.
- On average, people streamed live video on smart TVs and gaming consoles for 45 minutes per play last quarter—9X longer than VOD.
Long-Form Viewing by Device
- Both mobile and tablet video viewers spent more than half of their total online viewing time watching long-form videos (defined in the report as longer than 10 minutes) last quarter.
- Mobile long-form video viewing increased 29% year over year—growing from 41% of all time watched in 1Q12 to 53% of all time watched in 1Q13.
- 25% of total tablet viewing time was spent with content more than 60 minutes long.

- Larger screens on tablets and connected TVs and gaming consoles yielded higher engagement rates.
