The team of the VKontakte social network announced important news – the VK Video service is opening a content base for unregistered users. In order to find and view videos on a social network among the wide library of content, registration and authorization are no longer required.
As the developers note, now any users, even without a VKontakte account, have received unlimited access to the video display – “millions” of films, TV series, TV shows, sports matches, e-sports broadcasts and much more.
An updated search service based on machine learning technology will help you find the content you need. The order of search results is based on a variety of factors – viewer activity, video quality and its subject matter, and so on.
Also, for users without registration, proprietary technologies of the VK Video video platform become available – a fast first frame of video and automatic quality selection with adaptation to the user’s device and network conditions, 4K support, streaming to Chromecast and AirPlay network media players from mobile devices to a computer or TV screen , rewind during live broadcasts, and so on.
