It's not easy for the content to get through to the audience when they skim through your article, scrolling past the player too quickly. Fortunately, you can make your content stick in viewers' minds with the Viqeo Sticky player that is always seen on the top of the screen.

What is a Sticky player?

As we said, a Sticky player is a Video Player format always visible on a webpage.

The player "follows" your users as they scroll down the page and keeps your content playing on their screens. It is an excellent way for publishers to increase their views, VTR, and ad impressions.

Why use a Sticky player?

Sticky video is a popular solution among publishers and advertisers (at least in the short term) for increasing video visibility.

Viewers also benefit from this feature as they have the opportunity to consume relevant videos even when scrolling through the rest of the feed, potentially enriching their viewing experience.

Some other benefits include:

  • Higher ad viewability
  • High ads view depth
  • High video ads inventory
