Dailymotion makes its entrance among the Google OMID list of trusted players
Dailymotion has recently been added to the Google OMID list!
OMID is a standardized API for measuring viewability and verifying ad impressions across different platforms, including mobile apps and websites.
Being officially part of the Google OMID list means that, as a Partner, you are ensured to access accurate and standardized measurements for your ad campaigns leading to potentially more advertising campaigns and higher revenues.

We have raised from 10 to 30 the limit of displayed videos for playlists embedded in the Player queue, allowing you to showcase more curated content to your audience.
Learn more about the Player Queue and how to embed a playlist within.
Update in our Player policy
To guarantee that users can enjoy the best experience possible with our product, we recently updated the list of browsers versions supported by the Dailymotion Player.
For an optimum experience, we recommend to always use the most up-to-date version of a web browser.
