Now that there are more people buying smartphones and tablets, it only makes sense to make videos which are specifically designed for mobile devices. Whether established or startup, it’s increasingly important to produce videos that consumers can watch anytime, anywhere.
These devices have video and audio limitations so your sales or explainer videos need to be mobile friendly. In previous years, brands didn’t have to worry about it. However, since mobile first has been introduced video marketing teams need to make sure their content are mobile responsive.
How to Make Sure Your Video Player is Responsive
Your video needs to have a system which detects the user’s mobile bandwidth. This bandwidth will indicate how much or how rapidly the user will be able to stream and download video content.
If the viewer is using Vimeo, Brightcove, Wistia, or YouTube, then the video quality will be automatically reduced to accommodate the device’s bandwidth capability.
By responding to the ability of the device, you’ll be able to play videos quickly, reduce loading as well as video lag time. In case your videos are not served in a responsive platform, this is one of the most important steps to help ensure a corporate video is mobile friendly.
Make Sure Your Audio is of Great Quality
Mobile devices these days may be advanced but some of them still have low quality speakers. That’s why when videos are played at high volumes, it can distort audio track or make it hard to hear.
This is surely not appealing to your viewers and might cause them not to watch a video in its entirety. Your job is to ensure that your audio is of good quality so your message can be heard.
Video Length Should Be Relevant
Since people use their mobile phones when commuting or waiting for a meeting to start, they often have a shorter attention span. Therefore, take the purpose of your video into consideration during the editing phase.
If your goal is to make it viral, then a shorter video is recommended. However, if it is a how-to video or documentation, then it only makes sense to make a longer video. These videos can be a bit longer since the intent of the viewer watching is to learn something specific.
Consider the Text Font Size
Smartphone screens are only about 5 inches small. This means that it may be hard for viewers to read text as compared to seeing it on a monitor or on a TV screen. The smaller the screen, the more your viewer will need to squint their eyes to read the information.
In line with this, it is recommended that you use a bigger text font when creating a corporate video that will be viewed by mobile users. This is also important so viewers can clearly see your message.
