In contrary to other file formats, Play can retrieve the data it contains from remote and local sources and enables file owners to control many aspects of their files' playback rights (e.g., runtime duration, views number, permitted geo-locations, etc.).
Due to the way Play was designed, the binaries it produces are much smaller in comparison to their sources.
A Play file that stores its data locally will weigh up to ~75%-95% less than its source, while a Play file that retains its data remotely will usually have a pre-determined file-size of ~4KB-200KB.
Play is soon entering its public beta testing phase.
To get a better understanding of Play, check out the video.
A universal file type that contains any type of content (e.g. video, audio, image, document, etc.).
Significantly reduce storage use by utilizing Play files (e.g., a fully featured HD film that weighs 6GB, will weigh approximately 20KB/500MB after it’s converted to a Play file).
Allow content creator to completely control every aspect of their files playback rights (e.g., runtime duration, plays number, permitted geo-locations, etc.) at any moment in time.
Get in-depth analytics regarding your file's whereabouts and usage. Play files owners can obtain a precise real-time summary of their distributed content.
Play is powered by a decentralized network called Playground, which manages the internal and external communication of Play files, and enables the secure exchange of information between their logical sections and peers.
Playground implements Blockchain’s fundamental principles for the sake of security and anonymity. The primary goal of Playground is to provide fast and secure access to digital assets (e.g., files and live streams).
When a Play file is created, the network will randomly select encryption coefficients from its pool of issued keys to encrypt the data it wishes to transmit. When a recipient tries to view that data, the network will refer to its key-pool again, and get the keys needed to decipher the content within the requested Play file.
Playground relies upon compute and storage nodes to achieve a functional decentralized network. Each node is used to store data, approve transactions and provide access to the system. All the nodes together form a secure structure that allows an uncensored and unmonitored exchange of data between peers.
Use Play’s platform to convert media content into Play files and instantly share them with the world.
Control or delete your files after they're sent. Restrict watching sessions, geo locations, copying and much more.
Get real time reports of your files' lifecycle. Where they preformed the best, who watched them, who tried to copy them and how.
Use Play’s platform swiftly and seamlessly. Experience file sharing like never before.
With help from our contributors and investors these are the milestones we are looking forward to achieve.

Play’s Public Release
A Play file can contain all types of digital content, reduce the input file to a fragment of its size, and provide file owners with absolute control over their data at any moment in time.
Every one of us creates digital content in one way or another. Whether we take a picture of our loved ones or record a jam session with our friends, we are all content creators.
From the movie studio that produces content worth millions to the text document one puts his thoughts in. Every creator will benefit from the use of Play files, as they provide an enhanced file sharing experience and full ownership of intellectual property.
Play has been in development for a little over a year. The technology is working and will soon be ready for public testing. We are very excited to show you what we've been cooking!
The Blockchain technology enhances Play’s technology in two ways; Integrity and Security.
Integrity so that every user can be sure that the data retrieved is uncorrupted and unaltered. This way Play establishes real ownership and control of digital assets.
Security so that we eliminate centralized control by using decentralization. Anybody with sufficient access to a centralized system can destroy or corrupt the data within it. The Blockchain technology uses decentralized computing/data nodes to sidestep this issue, thereby building security into Play’s very structure. Its design allows the concealment of data exchange, so Play’s users will enjoy a higher level of privacy, performance, and scalability.
