Pros: - Very flexible
- Full-featured
- Strong analytics

Cons: - You have to add some custom CSS to get the video to be responsive

Overall: We are looking to implement more video into our marketing but we needed the ability to fully customize the look and feel of everything in the video. Vidyard is very flexible and allows us to build custom CTAs, Annotations, forms etc. that completely match our brand.

Pros: -As a Video Producer, my favourite piece to Vidyard is that links never changed. I can make changes to videos and upload into their 'players'--and the link remains the same.
-As a Marketer, I love seeing our videos drop-off rates . Great to see how people are engaging with your work and if they videos are doing what they're supposed to.

Cons: It's easy to get carried away and put all of your vids on Vidyard--but it's expensive. The key is to be selective in what you want analytics on--and regularly prune your video total.

Overall: Vidyard is a great tool for Sales and Marketing teams to work together and get real financial value out of their videos.

Recommendations to other buyers: It's pretty user friendly. Enjoyable to play around wiht.

Comments: When looking at other video players for our organization we looked at many different video players including the big ones like Wistia, Vimeo, and of course Vidyard. We decided to go with Vidyard because they have rock solid video hosting, cutting edge features, and solid customer support. We have hundreds of videos that we wanted to put on our website and on our YouTube channel. VIdyard lets you push videos directly to YouTube with closed captions, titles, and descriptions. Vidyard lets you customize email gating on your videos (not just email). Then you can sync those leads with your marketing automation platform. Vidyard lets you add custom annotations to any video at any time in the video so you can engage viewers and drive them to the pages you want them to go to.

Comments: In terms of general functionality and usability, Vidyard is by far the best video marketing platform for business. Out of any VMP, it has the best integrations and data flowing through our Marketo and Salesforce.

Vidyard is great!

Pros: I love the analytics and data provided by Vidyard.

Cons: The user experience could be a lot better because I sometimes have trouble finding out where certain features are and how to activate them such as changing the color of a player, etc.

Overall: Great platform for videos, the analytics are so on point, we've found it extremely useful to see where users replay, drop off, skip in our videos. Can't wait to see future features!

Recommendations to other buyers: I'd love to see an easier onboarding for those totally new to Vidyard and have Playlists and Videos differentiated and explained better in detail.

Pros: I like the live feed and the conversion from static presentations to video.

Cons: So far everything has met or exceeded expectations.

Overall: Vidyard live is a nice platform to live stream from. We have a lot of live events that we do and for years weren't able to adequately live stream. We do use Facebook live for some things, but for events that we want to have a higher quality video we use Vidyard. The other thing we really use it for is taking static presentations and turning them into videos. This is a nice function.

Turn-key solution for all our video needs

Overall

Comments: I run a educational non-profit and has had a wonderful experience using VidYard to host all of our educational videos for students studying for college exams. Their back-end interface is straightforward, their embedding capabilities makes it seems like I have my own video server service. The analytics VidYard captures is simply addictive (in a great way), providing great information about who, when, and their experience with the videos. Competitive price and fast customer service. It's a no-brainer for us.

Vidyard provides insights into video that builder better businesses

Jul 25, 2012
5/5
Overall

Comments: Our company (tech start-up, SaaS) uses video in a couple of difference ways: to drive trial sign ups; as a support tool; and to keep customers on top of product changes. The only reason we know that our videos increase conversions and ultimately improve our bottom line is because of Vidyard. Vidyard's player analytics and comprehensive customization options helped us figure out what our basic video strategy should be, fast. It allowed us to quickly iterate our player display options instead of needing multiple videos, to optimize conversions. Vidyard's interface is very user friendly and while the tool is simple and easy to use, the analytics and insights are far from trivial and pack a big punch. Definitely a great product that I would suggest to any company that is even thinking video strategy.
