Pros: Can I say everything? Ok if not... I guess the thing I like most about this software is how simple it is to use the product.

Cons: The only thing that could possibly improve is adding the ability to add a custom play button. I completely understand the reason why it doesn't exist and I only can say this because I've had to listen to colleagues bellyache about it.

Overall: From the first time, I logged in, to the most recent time I uploaded a video and then forwarded the URL to a co-worker so they can use it in their workflow. This software is incredible. The company is engaging and offers inspiring posts to their customer base and their User Community is fantastic. I appreciate the services this product provides and can't wait to see where things go for them in the future. Keep up the incredible work!

Pros: I just love the amount of details it provides about the video plays - number of times a video played, location of the visitor who viewed the video, date and time of the video played, percentage of the video watched, overall engagement rate, Call To Actions made like clicks etc.

I use all this information to tweak current videos and create new videos for better engagement and conversion. I also use this information to see what videos are more effective and accordingly promote them more.

Finally, Wistia also helps me with email campaigns where I send a video in my email and then check if the prospects have opened the video, watched the video full/partial etc. Based on this, I send custom follow-up messages.

Overall: Lot of benefits - helps me decide create topics for new videos. Also helps me make decisions on what videos to promote and what not to.

I also get to know if the video is lengthy or not, based on engagement rate.

Pros: Great to post videos and integrate with Wordpress site

Analytics get the job done

Easy to use to get the job done, not many extra whistles now, which is great

Like the company, blog posts are helpful and public betas

Cons: Embed styles could use more details on how to do them

Embedding could use more data on performance, I had to learn the best way through trial and error

Overall: Just great value for the cost. Nicely scoped service/product. You get just what you need to get the job done. There is little fluff.

Pros: Their product is the best! One of the best things is how fast the video load on any device. Besides that I love how much effort and compromise they put into supporting, teaching and sharing knowledge!

Cons: Not long ago they changed their charging structure and that affected our processes a lot, but still.. they are worth it!

Overall: creativity, commitment, ease, communication, collaboration, sharing, efficiency, productivity, improvement, fast streaming, very good support, continuous learning

Pros: It integrates with Salesforce. It's a great way to know which leads are more likely to closing. We're able to see if they have watched our marketing videos. We are able to see which ones they have watched, how long they watched it for. I absolutely love this tool. I have no idea what we would without this tool.

Overall: I absolutely love this tool and recommend it to other companies. This is a must-have tool for any company.

Overall: We're loving Wistia because the video players are sharp looking and easily customizable with color, buttons, etc. Whether I'm putting a video on a page highly trafficked on mobile and need a smaller play button, on a blog post where the color blue goes with the theme, or on a product page where I need the display frame to be just as gorgeous as our photo set, Wistia makes it easy.

Pros: If you want to embed videos on your site so that they blend in wiht your brand/web experience, Wistia is a top choice. And if you want details on usage / viewing stats Wistia is also top notch. We use Wistia for our company videos and also for client work for eLearning projects. It is easy to segregate videos by project so organizing videos is easy. And videos always look great on our website. The viewing stats are also excellent. We know which videos get watched the most but also when during videos people stop watching and what viewer engagement is. This is helping for us deciding how to improve our videos.

Cons: Wistia videos don't share well on social channels. I would not pick Wistia if your main goal is to share on social...use YouTube for that.

Overall: All of our company videos are stored and organized on Wistia and embedded on our website. This includes webinar recordings. Biggest benefit for us is a branded video experience on our website without distractions of other brand logos on the video player. I would give Wistia a higher rating if videos shared better on social channels.

Wistia is top notch in every aspect!

Pros: They are true video marketers, and the software they have created has awesome tech. The API's and SDK's work very well and are easy to use.

Cons: Pricing changes were unexpected, but understandable for a startup. Very occasionally videos uploaded do not transcode correctly which cause customer issues.

Overall: Fantastic video hosting and transcoding service.

Pros: Wistia provides an incredibly powerful and flexible way for entrepreneurs and businesses to manage, distribute, and monetize their video content.

Unlike YouTube and Vimeo, the key differentiator is the fact that you have absolute control over the location where you content can be accessed, embedded, or downloaded. Likewise, you have complete control over the look and feel of your embed design, popups, video galleries, SEO, heatmaps, and much much more.

The customer service and creativity at this company is also a HUGE selling point. I challenge anyone to actually reach someone at Youtube (HA!) or Vimeo by phone (not likely... even though they are a "small" company). With Wistia, you can actually PHONE them if or when you have an idea, a problem, or a need for further help.

Within five minutes of using their free trial, we knew at LabSecrets.com that we had found a real PARTNER in Wistia... and we've never looked-back since!

Cons: None that I have found yet.

Overall: I cannot imagine a more perfect solution for anyone who needs a video management system for content that needs to be kept private or behind a paywall. Even if that is not a requirement, the extensive tools, superb mobile capability of their native management system, and great customer service make Wistia a "dream".

Pros: What I like the most about Wistia is that I can store the videos to a server in the cloud and I guarantee that the information is secure, it can not be downloaded by unauthorized sources.

Cons: What I like the least about Wistia is that they increased their costs by monthly stored content and there are no annual contracts.

Pros: This software allows me to store and visualize the content of audiovisual projects for my audience. There is no capacity limit per project and this represents a great advantage for the company.

Cons: Its costs of use were raised after having years of use, now it is much more expensive to create a project in Wistia.

Pros: We went through many, many video platforms in the years before we began using Wistia. Now we've been using Wistia for almost a year, and we're not looking back.

Wistia is more of a Project Manager than a mere Video Platform, and this is the greatest overall benefit we've realized. The ability to manage our clients as well as our videos is an indispensable feature provided by Wistia.

Cons: Not many - but in the interest of balance, we'd love to have Watermarks/Bugs - need this.

Projects listed alphabetically, especially when searching - we have over 100 clients in Wistia - would love to see them sorted alpha instead of by date added.

Different email addresses for different projects for ticketing. IE - project clients go to one ticketing board (for us), webcasting clients go to another email address, and thus board for us.

As you can see - NOT ONE Con for core usage. We LOVE Wistia!

Overall: Wistia offers our company all the necessary features the other platforms couldn't deliver on, and goes beyond our expectations for a video hosting solution.

Wistia plays a major role in the everyday operations of our business. We've worked directly with Viddler, Kaltura, Ooyala and one of our major clients uses Brightcove. None of these Platforms compare in terms of functionality, API, and overall ease of use.

If you can afford it, A+

Pros: YouTube looks amateurish and has terrible stats. So that's out. Out of the available alternatives, Wistia, Vimeo, and self-hosted video rank highest. Vimeo for Business and Wistia are comparable, but Wistia is cleaner, has a better user interface, and, most importantly, claims to do much better at SEO. So if the price tag isn't a problem, go with Wistia. If not, check out Vimeo for Business or Vimeo Pro.

Cons: It's rather expensive for small businesses.

For people new to video, their newsletters are incredibly misleading. They love to post about how video doesn't have to be of a high quality, how you can use your webcam for things, etc. Some of their blog posts are great, but do please keep in mind that their business model is to get companies to upload as many videos as possible for any reason at all.

Pros: Wistia makes hosting videos so easy. Managing the videos in the cloud makes it easy to find what you are looking for, and sharing the videos onto your website or portal is extremely easy as well. For the past year or so, my sales teams have been using their soapbox extension. This allows us to create videos from our desktop and share them with customers. An extremely personable way to share short product explanations and videos with customers.

Cons: Wistia has changed the way they charge for starage of content. I liked their old plan better, but their new plan seems to be working well.

Pros: I have been using Wistia for years and bring it with me to every company I join. It's one of my favourite marketing tools. The cost is amazing for the features and compared to other video hosting companies the cost can't be beat. I love how they keep the platform simple and easy to use. They continually push out new features to make the platform better. Oh the videos they produce themselves are awesome and helpful!

Cons: None - once you try it out you will be hooked to! I have never needed to use the customer support team so I am not sure how good or bad they are.

Overall: Saves money and time!

Pros: Great software that integrates well into our website, currently hosted in HubSpot. It's code is simple and easy to swap in and out to add a nice lightbox feature on our site. Player is reliable and hardly ever has issues. We post all our company videos to Wistia and it integrates well with forms/turnstiles.

Cons: System is simpler and I wish that there were more features when integrating - like more info on turnstile forms. I wish that it was a little nicer on the layouts of the video pages themselves, but that's being nit-picky. Good software for video delivery.

Overall: Quick and easy way for our videographer to share videos on our team and for us marketers to put it up on the website. Wistia is a good growing company and always improving.

Finally! A great alternative to YouTube and Vimeo for Videos

Comments: The nice thing about Wistia is that it allows you to track which of your videos are actually seen, which parts of viewed (or skipped, or rewatched), and by whom (or at least by which IP locations). The statistical part means that you can use this tracking to make better videos that have a higher engagement or a better conversion ratio. Another great thing that I like, which I do not get with the Vimeo Pro account, and which is also not possible on YouTube, is the ability to have a turnstile embedded within the video. This allows you to collect somebody's contact info partway through the video to watch the rest. You can also embed nice looking calls-to-action within the video itself, which is helpful for doing any sort of Marketing Automation. All in all, it's a great service, especially for small business owners. The cost is affordable, and the value you gain is quite high.

Pros: Stats, stats and more stats! Able to have a Turnstile (to request a viewer's contact info) Can create a Call to Action Easy to Embed in a Website Affordable Lots of areas to customize

Cons: Cannot really think of any cons. It would be great if it were more seamlessly integrated into GetDrip. Another thing that I see with my ScreenFlow (screen capture software for Mac), is that I can click "Publish To" and send the rendered video directly to YouTube and Vimeo. It'd save me time if I could also publish directly to Wistia.

Pros: I love its integration with our CRM, its turnstile forms, and its video customization options. It offers a complete marketing-ready interface and, I believe, promotes a better user experience than other solutions.

Cons: I wish I had some negative feedback here to make my review more balanced, but I really don't. They used to have some issues with latency when customizing videos, but that's be resolved for my use case for months and months now.

Overall: Provided a better-looking and more user friendly interface for the user side. Tons of controls and customization options that marketers will love. It's integrations also work very well for us, including its integration with Hubspot.

Pros: Clean design makes the videos look nice on any webpage. The ability to customize the look of the player is a huge plus too. Ultimately, the ability to gather leads via the Turnstile is what makes Wistia so great for us. We can feed leads directly into our CRM and follow-up with them as they are finishing up watching a video.

Cons: The biggest issue at this time is that it is not possible to collect the original lead source of a contact and pass it into your CRM. If you are running ads to drive traffic to your video you won't be able to tie leads back to your ads unless you create a specific landing page for every ad and add a different instance of the same video on each page.

Pros: We use Wistia to host any recorded meetings, webinars, or trainings, and then we take those videos and post them to our Hubspot landing pages. It is super easy to take our Wistia-hosted videos where ever we need them!

Cons: I wish I could control the default image that shows when a video is paused or not yet playing. I also wish it would track who watched your video somehow.

Pros: It's super easy to use, the customer support and the content Wistia pushes out is great. We don't really have a lot of complaints.

Cons: We left a competitor to Wistia as we thought that Wistia would help us get more SEO juice out of our videos. Turns out, this won't work for our industry, which is disappointing. I believe we are paying more for this feature. Such a bummer!

Comments: It has always been tough for me to pull the trigger on a video hosting service when Youtube makes it so darn easy, but the company I currently work with already had Wistia when I showed up. So, I have gotten used to it and I have to say it is easy to use and has been extremely reliable thus far. Some of my favorite features have been that I don't have to worry about videos being private or public, like on Youtube. On Wistia, your videos are always safely stored until you decide to directly share the link or embed code to another site. This is incredibly important if your company is concerned about proprietary info getting leaked. I have also loved the stats I get from people watching our videos. It helps me understand which items are popular so that I can understand what my audience wants. Overall, I'm still not convinced that you can't get all of these features with Youtube, but Wistia is great at what it does.

Pros: I love how easy it is to use this software and how simply they explain how it works. The free version was so awesome that I decided to upgrade just so I could have access to more cool video tools. I'm not a video guy, so the fact that I could use it and make my intro/explainer videos look professional says a lot.

Cons: I use the Soapbox feature within Wistia but I don't know much about what else they offer. I think they could probably do a better job of explaining other available options.

Pros: Wistia is so easy to set up and get started on that you can do everything in one day. Once you upload content, you can easily customise and share with the great interface!

Cons: There are a lack of features, so even though you can add buttons, links and see views, you can't really delve into the more advanced features, because there are none.

Pros: Lots of features, powerful data analytics, very easy to use, lots of customization, good admin panel with multiple user roles.

Cons: Some third party implementation isn't quite there yet (random third party WordPress plugins), but that isn't entirely Wistia's fault, but still a con. They also seem to have a good amount of data down time. No data is lost, but once or twice a week it gets a little backlogged. Still, not a huge issue and it's fixed within 24 hours.

Overall: We've had Wistia for over a year and I'm very satisfied with the product. While you don't necessarily gain the organic traffic you might get from YouTube, the analytics you get from videos embedded on your site are perfect. The CRM implementation with HubSpot is excellent and it's an all around great product/service.

Pros: The video library is really easy to access and interact with and intuitive to use. The community is really strong and present in Slack.

Cons: When we finally decided to purchase the Wistia + Marketo integration, I didn't find support to be all that helpful. We were told that issues embedding forms in Wistia videos was a Marketo CSS targeting issue, and while that was the case, some more support or help from Wistia to ensure our success with that integration would've been really appreciated.

Pros: Love the ability to easily upload, share, and keep track of views. In addition, when we want to add captions to optimize for Facebook they have a service that costs a little to automatically add them. Also very easy to add a cover image for the video.

Cons: I don't have too much to share about what I dislike. If you have multiple user roles and can be cumbersome to assign manager roles vs. viewer roles. Only the "account owner" can do that and that person might not always be assesible.

Pros: We use wistia for any video content that is extremely important for a user to see.

There's tracking and analytics, CTAs, and a lot of flexibility with their video. For example: I can make different things happen when users are at the 50% mark of a video because of how easy Wistia makes.

Plus, it's so easy to gather analytics in their dashboard.

Cons: Wistia is pretty pricey compared to the others. And sometimes, the video doesn't load as fast as Youtube/Vimeo.

Overall: Dead simple video hosting and analytics!

Pros: What I like most about Wistia is that it supports a large number of formats and automatically manages downsampling. Which means that the platform internally generates several versions of the same video to release the most appropriate depending on the connection speed of the person who needs to watch the video.

Cons: The least I like about Wistia is that you can only create a free account with limited options that allows you to upload up to 50 videos, to upload in large amounts must be paid.

Pros: My videos look so much better embedded on my website than they did with YouTube or Vimeo. It's super easy to create playlists, and I love that you can customize the appearance of the videos and the playlists. It's easy to embed different sizes and styles - which makes my website look much cleaner.

Cons: My only complaint is about its integration with Hubspot, which requires Hubspot Enterprise in order to be fully effective. I can still embed easily and include videos in my emails, but can't trigger workflows based on video activity, which wasn't made clear prior to upgrading Wistia. So, not really a Wistia issue, but I wish they'd get on Hubspot to fix that!

Pros: Love how easy and fun this user interface is to use. The videos look great in the players and the feature rich customization is helpful.

Cons: It's a bit on the pricey side, but other than that it's a great tool for understanding how people interact with your videos.

Pros: Easy to crop down videos

Cons: Needs to have more editing to make it look better. Take my so-so video and make it awesome with graphics and graphic packages..etc.

Overall: I like the idea of video. But I'm not sure that setting up my own "video" gig with lighting and the tripod and my iphone is at the quality that I want it to be "yet". I think there needs to be a bit more editing tools inside Wistia to make it stand a part from say..youtube. I mean, I take videos with my ipad and upload them into YouTube..and they seem to be about the same quality. Just need a little more "magic" to want to pay for a service at this time.

Good video creation tool

Pros: It is very easy to record and edit presentation videos with this software. Another nice feature is having the ability see the data as well.

Cons: It's good software. The downside for us is that we aren't a place for making a lot of video presentations so it was more than we needed.

Great
