You need it to see videos on some sites.
I use the services from this website in order to view videos when I visit the website of The Economist http://economist.com I have not had any problems personally, thus rated on vendor reliability only. Note that the TRUSTe seal dated 25 Jan 2012 indicates that this site does not meet minimum standards for data governance and privacy.
Uses 1pixel gif image for tracking:
Through two acquisitions Brightcove provides web-based video encoding and ad insertion by stitching the ads into the video.
Unless you download these video's and cut out the ads, you will have to watch them. Content producers need to live as well.
Script is available here:
Bei art-magazin.de funktioniert das Vergrößern der Bilder nicht, ohne in NoScript brightcove.com zu erlauben — Erlaubnis erteilt, wenn auch zähneknirschend… UPDATE: … es hat sich gelohnt: Galerien funktionieren viel besser bzw. überhaupt richtig. // Zooming in at art-magazin.de only works with activated brightcove.com. UPDATE: galleries now have a much better UI…!
Brightcove video content is also associated with domains on *.fcod.llnwd[.]net (Limelight Networks). Thought some traffic I saw was tied to a poisoned ad or beaconing acitivty. Turned out it was tied to a user viewing video content on ESPN via Brightcove.
Four primary trust criteria aside, only brightcove.com permission was required in order to view the video from http://www.redbullstratos.com/handlers/view-video.aspx?videoId=189294632...
of the Red Bull sponsored Near Space balloon flight of Stratos.
Unfortunately, it appears that in order to watch videos on the New York Times website, scripts from brightcove.com must be enabled.
T Rowe Price (the mutual fund company) uses (requires) BRIGHTCOVE.COM to view its videos. If I trust TRP with my few dollars, I gotta trust them when they use this service.
