Yahoo announced its acquisition of mobile and online video streaming company RayV Friday, the latest example of the tech giant's move to become a content provider. The company faces an uphill battle as it tries to break into the mobile video space where Netflix, YouTube and others are firmly entrenched.

Revenues from mobile video streaming and video download services are predicted to more than double over the next four years. By 2017, revenues will reach $9.5 billion, up from $4.5 billion in 2013, according to Juniper Research.
