The 2022 Streaming Media 50: The 50 Tech Companies That Matter Most in Online Video

Oct 10 2022

Welcome to the 2022 Streaming Media 50, our annual list that foregrounds the industry’s most innovative and influential technology suppliers, service providers, and platforms, as acclaimed by our editorial team. Some are large and established industry standard-bearers, while others are comparably small and relatively new arrivals that are just beginning to make a splash. All set themselves apart from the crowd with their innovative approach and their commitment to serve the customer and advance the industry. It’s the fifth year we’ve capped the list at 50 companies.

Before we reveal the list, a few qualifiers: As usual, we’re focusing almost exclusively on technology vendors, rather than content companies. This mission of this list has always been to salute the companies that enable video services to deliver great content to consumers reliably and cost-effectively.

With this list, we continue to steer clear of companies whose offerings exclusively target the video production segment of the market covered primarily by’s sister site, Streaming Media Producer.

Also, the Streaming Media 50 focuses exclusively on companies with headquarters in North America (including those with headquarters in both the U.S. and abroad that have expressed a preference for U.S.-based Streaming Media awards programs).

So how do we arrive at the list? We ask our regular contributors to look at a master list of all of the vendors in the online video marketplace and rank them on a scale of one (doesn’t belong in the Streaming Media 50 at all) to five (no list of the most important companies would be complete without it). The top 50 make the list.

Notably, 12 companies that were on the 2021 list didn’t make it this year. Some of them just aren’t innovating or expanding their offerings, while others appear under different guises in this year’s list thanks to acquisitions, consolidations, and other industry reconfigurations.

Without further ado, welcome to the winner’s circle: the 2022 Streaming Media 50. Kudos to one and all.
