In 2001, I tested the first version of the Oplayo Mobile Video Player on mobile phones with Symbian operating system. My first test phone was the Nokia 7650. The videos were converted from standard video files into Oplayo’s MVQ format using the Oplayo Media Designer. The videos typically required a mobile data connection with 26 kbps bandwith and used the HTTP protocol for streaming.
Oplayo has been at the forefront of mobile media development and became a global leader in non-standard encoded mobile video technology. In 2010 the Oplayo domains were acquired by MediaWireless.
