This year’s Streaming Media Europe 101 represents our seventh annual look at the most interesting, important, and influential companies in the online video space, and it’s even more Euro-centric than last year’s. We still acknowledge the importance of U.S.-based companies that are active in Europe—and who can deny the impact of Apple and Google anywhere?—but this year’s list contains more companies operating in Europe than ever before.

Of course, those European companies’ operations and customers aren’t limited to Europe; one of the most satisfying things about putting together this list every year is seeing how many European-based companies are having an impact outside of the continent, whether that’s by way of customers or by establishing an outpost elsewhere, typically in the U.S. This year’s list also shows how dynamic the streaming industry in Europe is—25 of these companies weren’t on last year’s list.

Once again this year, we stayed away from honouring content providers, and instead we’re emphasising the companies that create the technologies that enable those content publishers to grow their businesses. In some cases, those companies are also content publishers or providers, but that’s not why they’re being recognised here.

So how do we pick the Streaming Media Europe 101? We start with a master list of all the companies we’re aware of in our space, then ask our editorial and publishing team to rank them on a scale of 0 (doesn’t belong on the final list at all) to 5 (no list of important companies would be complete without it). The top 101 make the list. Interestingly, not a single company averaged a perfect 5.

Congratulations to the 101 companies that matter most in online video.
