Justwatch helps You Where to Watch Movies Legally

JustWatch movies legally

With more Indian millennials aggressively migrating to video-on-demand (VOD) platforms to watch premium content, JustWatch, a Berlin-based start-up, offers a search engine to help viewers find where to legally watch their favourite movies and television series online.

But, for an international over-the-top (OTT) content player vying to create a space and make it big in the Indian market, providing local content is equally important, said David Croye, Founder and CEO at JustWatch,

“If an OTT player wants to get big in India, providing Hollywood content alone can only be the start, local content is more important in India than in most other countries,” Croye said.

“When we looked at our visitors, we were pretty amazed to see that we already had over 500,000 visits from India. They were mostly coming from search engines and were trying to find where they could watch a movie or TV show online,” Croye added.

Now Watch Video Offline Through JioCinema Movies TV App

With JustWatch, viewers in India can easily compare the different legal OTT catalogs, such as Netflix, Hotstar, among others, as well as choose which service provider would be best for them.

However, internet infrastructure may prove to be a major challenge for JustWatch to establish a business in the Indian market, according to the JustWatch CEO.

“The internet infrastructure is still not fast enough when it comes to broadband access. So it will take a few years more until most people will be able to stream in high definition (HD) format,” Croye said.

“Thus, temporary downloads of streams and optimisation of the content for mobile devices is really important. JustWatch is built mobile-first and optimised for loading speed,” Croye noted.

JustWatch app, which is currently online in 25 countries and has over 25 million users since its launch last year, is available on both Google Play store and Apple store. While JustWatch aims to make viewing content less annoying and more valuable for users, as an international aggregator it also aims to make movie marketing a lot more efficient for advertisers.

Facebook to Rely up on Artificial Intelligence to Flag Offensive Live Videos

“As the demand for streaming movies is huge and we want to bring more transparency to the market. our business model is to help movie studios advertise their content to the right audience,” Croye said.

To do this, JustWatch collects anonymous user data on movie taste and purchase behavior through its website justwatch.com and apps in many countries worldwide.

The corresponding anonymous user profiles are used to run highly targeted and efficient video advertising campaigns on mainly YouTube and Facebook for movie releases in cinemas, home entertainment and VOD.

“We always try to have a good mix between international VOD platforms like Netflix, Amazon Video, and iTunes as well as local providers like Hotstar, Hooq, and Voot,” Croye said.

“We already have a long list of smaller Indian providers we want to show on JustWatch in the future. In the weeks after the launch we will listen to user feedback and look at the data to decide which providers we will add next. We plan to add at least 5-10 additional OTT providers over the coming months,” Croye added.

Google Play reduces Android App Updates Size by 90% for faster downloads

Google Play android App updates

Are you facing issues regarding the storage on your smartphone? Worrying about downloading the applications or updating from the Google Play store. Cool! From now you don’t have to concern with those issues. Google has recently announced about the shrinking the size of the application and also the updates.

Hence, downloading the applications from the play store will be quicker than earlier. The best thing about the reducing the size of the application is, it does not occupy much storage on your device. So you can able to download more apps regardless of the storage.

Google Play Reveals Top Apps, Games, Books, Movies, TV shows of the year

Google could able to manage to reduce the full apk size up to 47% downloading size earlier. It uses the bsdiff (Binary diff/patch utility) algorithm for reducing the delta size up to 50% when compared with the older algorithm. Using and applying the patches for the binary files, bsdiff produces binary patches up to 50-80 % smaller than the files produced by Xdelta.

During the recent announcement Google has mentioned that it found the new way to reduce the file size by 65% off the size of app revision. In some cases, it could also go up to 90% by using the technique File-by-File patching.

Most of you all already knew that Android apps were getting the packages as APK’s that can be converted into ZIP files with the special conversions. Using the Deflate technique, the data within the Zip file will be compressed. The uncompressed data will make to identifying the changes makes the compressed output of deflate look different. This will lead to difficult for identifying the compressed content which leads to inefficient patches.

Save APK File Size

Google Play has reduced the usage of this new patching technology for the auto updates for now. This will ensure that the users do not have to wait for the longer time than usual for the update to complete in spite of doing it manually.

India’s Google Play Store get ‘Net Banking’ as the New Payment Option

Google has illustrated scenario with the example on the blog. Imagine you are the author of a book which is about to publish and you have to update the single sentence. It is much easier to mention about this to the editor to change the sentence and what to change rather than sending an entirely new book. In a similar way, the patches are much smaller and faster for downloading than the entire APK.
