Brightcove gives all of our video content a good home

Pros: My favorite thing about Brightcove is the social functionality that allows me to publish videos to Youtube, Twitter, and other platforms. I don't have to export video and import it elsewhere. It makes sharing simple.

Cons: My least favorite thing about Brightcove has to do with our users who upload duplicate content, or who don't use proper tags. We have thousands of videos, one video can be in 20+ languages, and when users aren't adding them in a uniform manner, searching them can be a real hassle.

Pros: Easy to use video hosting platform. Many upload customization options, and a great one-click landing page option. Easy to implement on landing pages and track within playlists.

Cons: Reporting methods are hard to get video-to-video comparison reports without using workarounds that involve a ton of manual work.

Generally positive, but a bit finicky at times.

Pros: I would view this as a barebones solution. It does what it needs to, gives you what you need and what you ask. They have made big improvements with their new client, but there must be better out there.

Cons: I can live with the slow server speed and awkward interface, but oh my god the search feature is unforgivable.

Pros: Robust, easy to use system, very good for hosting and managing on-demand video. API useful for advanced integrations

Cons: Support is appalling / almost non-existent. Feature enhancements come at a slow pace and the good ones tend to be at extra cost

Pros: Simple website hosting of videos. Video is a big part of modern websites so a tool that lets you host your videos (without a logo watermark) is useful.

Pros: It's great to be able to publish to a website, as well as social media platforms. We used to have to use several programs/platforms, but Brightcove helps eliminate extra steps.

Cons: Everything is great, until you need to search for a video. Unless you know the exact tags you've used, good luck!

Pros: We really liked having a secure place to store video files. It's a nice professional way to share videos.

Cons: Embedding on third party sites an be a drag. It also doesn't have native integrations with other big platforms like HubSpot. Wistia which is another great platform does.
