The ACM Mile-High Video (MHV) presents an annual Best Video Blog Post Award. Among the 23 nominees, the post “Common pitfalls in MPEG-DASH streaming” by Daniel Silhavy, Stefan Pham and Mariana Avelino took third place this year.

We are delighted about the award, and encouraged to keep investing a lot of work into the blog,” says Daniel Silhavy.
