An online video platform (OVP) is a software application or service that is used to host, manage, and distribute video content on the internet. An OVP typically provides a range of features and tools that make it easier for users to upload, encode, and publish videos, and to manage and track their performance. OVPs can be used for a variety of purposes, including hosting and streaming videos on websites and social media, monetizing video content through advertising or subscriptions, and analyzing and optimizing the performance of videos. Many OVPs also support additional features such as closed captions, analytics, and integrations with other applications. Some popular examples of OVPs include YouTube, Vimeo and Teyuto.
