How many people watch video on their cell phones? Is encoding something I really need to be concerned about when I am editing my video?

Encoding for cell phones and other mobile devices is something that you need to think about when editing your video. As of October 2010, approximately 200 million videos were watched every day on mobile devices. According to YouTube, the number of YouTube videos watched on mobile devices tripled in 2011. More than 20% of YouTube views came from mobile devices last year, a statistic that is anticipated to increase in 2012 and in the years to come.

Currently, YouTube videos are available on 350 million devices. If your video is inaccessible to the people who want to view it on their cell phones, then you could lose business. The people who are interested in watching your video may not wait until they get to another device to view your video. Instead, they will get the information that they seek from another source, and you will likely lose a potential customer or client.

Do not let this happen to you. Your video should be accessible from any device. Our experienced Fairfax video editors and encoders are committed not only to getting the best video possible uploaded to the internet but to making sure that anyone who wants to view your video can see it.
