Pros: I love that I was able to access and use the Sprout Video platform from the beginning. The ease of use was definitely a plus. I am fairly tech savy but the Sprout Video platform was exceptionally user friendly and easy for me adapt to my needs as an educational provider. The greatest plus for me was being able to safeguard my original content with password protection and monitoring of those accessing my content.

Cons: At different levels of use, streaming capacity and storage varied and I had to make some tough decisions. I did switch to a greater capacity license but next next bump up would be a significant expense for me. I would have liked a more incremental bump in capacity, storage and price. The first two levels were extremely price friendly for me as a small educational platform. Non-the-less, this was the most affordable option for me and I believe the site has the best customer service in the field.

Overall: I am extremely satisfied with SproutVideo hosing. It has all the bells and whistles I need for delivering educational content. It has allowed me to keep my own customer's fees down while getting first rate service and hosting for my video content. I did try other prominent platforms and found Sprout to be the most efficient and affordable option hands down. The biggest plus is the customer service and tech support. When something went wrong with one of my courses, the Sprout customer service team had the problem diagnosed, fixed and up and running within the hour. You can't find that kind of service everywhere. I highly recommend this hosting service and have done so to others.

Pros: PS/A has been producing for 48 years and we do a variety of production services. Our need for a secure server for our clients is random and sporadic, but when the need is there, whether it's for Sweet Adelines Int'l or HEAD Sports, it has to work and perform for their satisfaction. SproutVideo has never failed to provide a great platform for our video projects with its log in options and playback quality. Whenever we we need a resource for secure access.... they will be the ones we turn to for our clients. One of the major reasons we use SproutVideo is their level of customer service. Rep or others are always there with quick answers and support to get us through the process. A++ on customer service.

Cons: At times there are so many options that it's a bit confusing BUT... it's probably due to the fact we use this so intermittently that knowledge of the system gets lost in the time between uses. Their platform is super and on a more regular basis, it would be easier for us to use I'm sure. Thank God for their support system.

Overall: SproutVideo gives us that special platform for secure access viewing for our client's sensitive video content. It's not an everyday need for us, but for years we've used them and they perform every time. It's great to have confidence in an important area of production for us.

Pros: I really enjoy the customer service aspect to a video CDN service. The service is very predictable and easy to use and comes with most of the bells and whistles you could want. As with any service, you will run into a point where something will fail to work correctly. This is where chat-window support is awesome. The developers actually care and respond with helpful ideas and even code snippets to get you through an unexpected rough patch. 10 times better than JW Player!

Cons: The only one thing I do not like...and this is a picky thing on my part. If you want to "rewind" your videos to the beginning when you are done, you need to use a small script. Support provided me with a code sample that worked and everything was groovy. While this was fine, I feel like it should be a check box option.

Overall: I have used other CDN's including JW Player. None of them are this good, or this customer-centric. I have been burned by bad updates, player changes and fraudulent account billing practices. I have even been taken completely offline by other vendors...multiple times. Ouch! Sprout has done none of these things...they are the opposite, they are solid support, timely and consistent upgrades that MAKE SENSE! I have used them for years, Sprout has been great to work with!

Pros: As the creator and architect of ConveYour.com, I wanted a video platform that I could tightly integrate with groups SMS messaging system. Other platforms seemed too distracted on trying to be a consumer product vs a platform for businesses. Sprout's simple API, great video player with great javascript support, great video playback performance, and strong security options is why we went all in with them.

Cons: I would like for them to support the tus.io upload protocol to make big video uploads on mobile devices much more dependable. Also, if they could do watch-once to encode functionality for faster viewing of a video after upload or even a guaranteed thumbnail instantly after upload, that would really help us.

Pros: We create hand drawn videos for the safety, training and educational sector, worldwide. We use SproutVideo so clients can review their draft video and then download the final video. Super easy, super fast. But best of all is SproutVideo's customer service, it's #1!

Cons: Previously you couldn't group videos in folders, only with tags. We submitted a feature request, not sure who else did, and last year SproutVideo released folders! So I have to say this software is the best!

Overall: Super easy delivery of videos to our clients. We upload the video. We email gate it so we know the client has viewed the video. The analytics tell us which parts of the video the client has watched more than one time. We can check the download analytics to see if the client downloaded it. Great software!

Pros: It is very easy to track and monitor views of each video. The analytics provided are very helpful and include information such as viewer engagement, location of views, device types, domains used, etc. I also really like that you can set up profiles for viewers and give them limited access to certain videos. You can even control if they are able to download the video.

Cons: The only draw back is the 10 GB max file size for video uploads. We have a few videos that run upwards of 6 hours long. I just break them into 2 videos (part I and II) to get around the max file size so it's not a huge deal.

Overall: We are a state agency that uses this software to house and monitor views of recorded legal trainings for replay. Whenever I have had questions or concerns about our account, we have received a prompt response from the company and our issues are always quickly resolved. They are also very helpful in answering questions.

by SproutVideo on March 18, 2019

Thank you so much for your review! We wanted to let you know that we recently increased the file limit on uploads to 100 GB per video file for uploads through our web app. Hopefully that makes your workflow a lot simpler.

Pros: Easy to use, very customizable, easy to share

Cons: Can't think of a feature that's missing or something that hasn't worked for me

Overall: I run my own business and use videos in both my marketing and products that I sell. I needed a place to host my videos that was ad-free, easy to share on social media, and easy to embed in my website. And of course, I wanted my videos to stream flawlessly and not have any issues with compression or poor quality.

Sprout checks all of these boxes, and so much more. Their customer service is outstanding - knowledgeable, quick to reply, and patient. Although Sprout offers a robust array of features for larger businesses with more complex needs, they've been the perfect solution for me. I really love that even though I'm a single user with basic account, I still get awesome service.

Pros: I find it intuitive to navigate, which is important because as a small biz owner I navigate a lot of software in a day! What I really like is that it is super easy to grab the URL or embed code, which I use in my websites. I also use the playlist feature for employee tutorials, which is super helpful. I get a ton of space and lots of easy controls over who can view, such as private (only through embed), password protected, or public.

Cons: At times I've considered using Sproutvideo for selling webinar replay videos, but in the end opted to host with my online course software, which can process the fees.

Overall: I needed a really reliable solution to host and share the video lectures I create for my online courses. Sproutvideo has been a great, easy solution for those videos and then as videos have become a key communicating tool for employee tutorials and marketing I kept using Sproutvideo because it works so well. I've had no problems with the service going down or being unreliable in any way. I've been really happy with this software!

Pros: I was thrilled to find a way of hosting my videos privately!

Cons: I'm happy to report that I haven't found anything I don't like about it!

Overall: When I realized I needed a way to host my videos that allowed my viewers to see my work and not be automatically directed to watch something else when the video ended... I was hooked! What makes this even better is the reasonable cost and the fabulous, quick, helpful customer service I receive EVERY time I have a question. Technology like this can be challenging and Sprout has been the perfect answer for me. A software that offers me exactly what I need AND makes it easy for me to understand without charging me an arm and a leg gets my business every time. Thank you Sprout and team!

Pros: We have been using Sprout within our company for a while and it is a great resource for hosting videos. Once posted, they can easily be embedded into the website for everyone else to consume. Ability to provide password locked video content is also really helpful in certain exception use cases.

Cons: No Cons come to mind that I can currently think of. The platform is easy to use.

Overall: Overall experience with SproutVideo is positive. It does what we need it to do as far as solution for our video hosting. The user management (Team Member) is great and we do not have to worry about having to give out information to the main account.

Pros: Really easy to use but, at the same time, highly customizable, sproutvideo offers the backend services needed to deploy a corporate video delivery system in no time. It abstracts the complexities needed to run a "private toutube", and does that with great success, plus its really comptetitive pricing made choosing sproutvideo a no-brainer, competitors don't get close.

Cons: Nothing really, everything works as intended, analytics are great, cdn is fast...

The only thing I wish is that they introduced live video... but that's another thing.

Overall: We use sproutvideo to host and deliver videos to some of our clients private video sites, which we developed. Integrating sproutvideo's api was easy and allowed ua to offer a really competitive solution in our target markets.

Pros: 1. High speed upload especially when there is something in upload and you tried again with same file, it resume from percentage that ended up with before the problem occurring.

2. Controls for access view and manage access for your students is extremely helpful.

3. You can let students access to videos from a website of sproutvideo with your company logo.

Cons: It is not cons but it is a suggestion from me as a long time user, I would prefer that you make videos more secured from screen capture programs, also I would suggest that you made a section for upload materials like pdf or quizzes with more secured from copy

Pros: I first registered on sproutvideo to integrate videos on my Website.

I liked the fact that the web player was unbranded and would autoplay on smart devices.

After that I came to use it for video delivery and I love the fact that you can have your very own video website and deliver your content with your branding on it unlike other services such as vimeo and youtube. You can also deliver your file in various format which are automatically generated which is also a very cool feature in my opinion. You can set privacy settings and a lot of other cool options which makes it very relevant for video delivery.

Very happy with this service!

Cons: The only thing that could stop a user is that its price is higher than other services. But I would definitely recommend it over Vimeo for instance (if you don't need the social features of Vimeo which are not include at all in Sproutvideo).

Overall: Very happy with this services.

Pros: I have a business doing paid training webinars for casino managers. I record the webinars because we include 90 days access to the recordings with paid registrations. We also sell the recordings to those who didn't participate in the live webinar. We store the recordings on SproutVideo and have been doing so for about two years. Pros: 1. the software is easy to use and consistently works. I have never had a client complaint about it. I can set up access to recordings in various ways that meet my needs 2. support is exemplary. There have been a few times I've had questions and I have always been able to get a fast response. Definitely highly recommend.

Cons: I have no complaints about the software or the support.

Overall: We signed up with Sprout because we found that many businesses were blocking YouTube. It turned out to be a great find. For such a small fee, we get everything we need and more. Their customer service is also incredibly responsive and friendly. I'd recommend them to anyone.

Extremely Happy Customer~

Pros: I have been using Sprout Video for a number of years and they are great! I highly recommend them for anyone or organization looking for an effective way to house their training videos. SproutVideo is a great alternative to using YouTube.

Cons: I'd like more functionality for my private SproutVideo website, but I believe this is available for an additional cost.

Overall: I am able to make my training videos available to clients, but not accessible on YouTube. I absolutely love SproutVideo.

Excellent product!

Pros: The software is very easy to use. Everything from loading the videos, selecting the configurations, setting the embed code parameters, and embedding the video on your site. No need to worry about uptime or bandwidth; they have it all covered. They also support subtitles in multiple languages. Lastly, their support is the best! Available when we need them and answer our questions promptly.

Cons: Sometimes the embed codes need a bit of tweaking to work within our websites. It would be great if they provided more resources on how to alter their HTML to make it work better.

Everything you need.

Pros: There's a lot of great things here with Sprout Video. I needed a site where I could store multiple videos and share with a select group of people that varies on a weekly basis. The problem I ran into with other services was that I couldn't control access and limit things like number of views, sharing the link and downloads. Sprout Video on the other hand fully captures my business needs and allows me to maximize our brand with complete control over our content. The analytics behind every view is second to none as well!

Cons: A bit of a higher price tag comes with the subscription, but so far definitely seems to be worth it.

Overall: Maximizing our brand and connecting with users to share high quality content with relative ease of use.

Pros: Customer support is outstanding, unlike Vimeo or Wistia you get answers promptly. The ability to embed a lightbox version of your videos is a plus. The software is easy to use and quality is outstanding.

Cons: I have 2 of my clients using Sprout and we have nothing negative to say. Would recommend to anyone looking for a robust video solution.

Overall: I have 2 clients that own online elearning sites and Sprout is the way to go for video centric sites. One of the sites has approximately 200 videos behind a paywall and the site loads quickly without any buffering issues like we had with Vimeo, plus Vimeo blamed the issues on us, without offering a solution. Sprout was able to explain the issues and offer a solution that does not slow down our site at all.

Pros: We love that the system is so easy to add and remove users from. Decide who can access certain videos. The upload process is super simple and labeling videos is super easy as well. Being able to customize the video site was a bit plus too.

Cons: The storage fills up pretty quick and the warning of going over the limit is subtle

Pros: Good value for storage (500 GB) needed. Straight-forward set-up using API/tokens to manage uploads from ~1000 users and downloads from ~100 users. I needed a very quick learning curve due to fast-changing customer demands

Cons: Better sorting video metadata (file size, time length) would be very helpful. However, I haven't had the time to dig into its tag and playlist features due to immediate roll-out dates, so these may be covered within the product.

Overall: Quick, transparent rollout. Relatively easy to understand interface and API. Very good email support with quick, dependable turnaround.

Pros: Good amount of video storage for the price point.

Easy to embed videos

Cons: Nothing in particular about SproutVideo. I think it offers a good service at a better price point that many competitors.

Overall: We use SproutVideo to host our videos for a membership site. Their domain filtering allows us to filter which domains the videos can be played from giving us more control over our IP. We haven't used their opt in/marketing features as we have other tools that do that.

Very easy to use and good value.

Pros: Ease of use, cost, platform, options and customer experience (very easy for clients to use)

Cons: Can take a little bit to upload the videos however it's not too bad. I typically bulk upload them so by the time I am done uploading the last video, the first one is ready to add options.

Overall: We are a training and consulting firm and wanted our clients to be able to stream videos for certain lengths of time and NOT be able to download them. After lots of research, trial and error we found the perfect solution in Sprout Video.

Pros: Ease of uploading videos, Breadth of report & statistics, Ability to drill down within statistics, Can password protect videos

Cons: The only issue I experienced with SproutVideo, albeit temporarily, was logging in. For a brief time I was forced to continuously log in when moving about pages, but after a quick chat with their customer service it was resolved.

Overall: SproutVideo has been a great tool for our small brand to manage our videos. The platform is very easy to use and provides a large variety of customization and privacy options to customize our videos. I also really like how many statistics are available for each video and how detailed the stats can be. I am not a very video tech savvy person, but I was able to easily learn and use SproutVideo.

Pros: We utilize SproutVideo's unique security features to feature videos on domain-specific URLs. We weren't able to use other platforms like Vimeo or YouTube for this.

Cons: SproutVideo is expensive and their tiers keep changing. Plus you need to factor in possible overage charges if your video is popular. Vimeo Pro doesn't have any bandwidth limitations.

Overall: Again, we need the security features that Sprout provides, but I hope to see prices fall. We have been a customer for many years and will continue until others improve domain-specific features.
