This paper studies the coopetition between two websites which are platforms to offer online video. We use two-sided market theory and game theory to analyze a duopoly market of online video websites. An online video service system is established, including online video websites, copyright owners of online video, advertisers and viewers. After discussing the negotiation of copyright trading, the effect for viewers to watch online video, the effect of advertising, we focus on the coopetition between the duopoly online video websites. We conclude that cooperation is the optimal strategy to promote the development of online video websites.
