Pros: Limelight's Video Platform has a lot of commonly-needed features right out of the box. If you're looking to deploy a video-based solution quickly, and you don't want to build and assemble every component from a "base metal" starting point, Limelight's turnkey solution can save you a lot of time and money. Like many out-of-the-box products, it may not have all the bells and whistles you need (and it may have extra bells and whistles that you don't), but it's well-aligned with most common web-based video needs.

Cons: Because you're purchasing (or licensing) Limelight's proprietary software along with their actual Content Delivery Network (CDN), you may run into limitations and constraints in terms of what you can do with the video player. For example, if you wanted to encode your video in a specialized way (such as 4K resolution or an out-of-the-ordinary bitrate or codec), you may not be able to do it because of how Limelight's technologies are integrated together.

Overall: I've found Limelight to serve well as a starting point for video-based platforms and projects. However, some of the more successful projects have "outgrown" Limelight's capabilities and graduated to a more customized solution. Having said that, few have regretted starting with Limelight, and you could credit them for ultimately helping their clients outgrow their basic capabilities.

Pros: Easy to customize players & embed code into website. Styles of the default player is peppy. Default player would work on most of our websites.

Cons: Tricky to achieve responsive player. Though style guide is clear, it is not easy to code a responsive player.
