Improved test accounts

Posted January 18, 2016

Our free test accounts has been upgraded to allow our users to really try out our Online Video Platform. We now allow 5 times the storage – 5GB of free storage per account for videos. And the distribution is 25 times larger – 25GB of transfer. 25 GB of transfer equals more then 50 viewing hours of video in Streamio HQ 480P so it gives plenty of  room for video distribution. We still give full access to our API, if you want to integrate Streamio’s video storage, encoding and distribution functionality (great for developers) and our worldwide distribution.
Two changes to our terms of service will require the test account users attention:
Videos uploaded or changed in any other way on test accounts will carry a Streamio watermark. An account upgraded to any of our paid plans will have the watermarks removed.

Also from now on, we require user activity in order to provide this free lunch – test accounts need to be renewed every month – failure to do so will freeze the account and after a grace period it will be deleted. Paid accounts do not require renewal.  All terms and condition are posted at http://www.rackfish.com/legal

We hope you will enjoy our large and free test accounts!
