Plays on tablets and smartphones together increased more than 24% in Q1, quarter over quarter, and rose a stunning 100% since Q1 2014. But, that doubling of plays on mobile devices over the past 12 months pales next to the 367% increase over the past two years. That growth suggests more than 50% of all online video plays will be on mobile devices before the end of the year. Smartphones remain the engine of mobile growth, with four times as many plays as tablets.
