YouTube Vs Wistia

Video.jpg

We've all heard of YouTube for hosting videos but what about the others?

There’s plenty out there but one we particularly like is Wistia. Wistia allows you to add videos to your own website easily and on your own terms.

Here are some key features...

HTML5 or Flash
When you upload a video to Wistia, it’s automatically encoded for Flash and HTML5 versions at multiple resolutions.

Least Buffering Possible
These versions are stored on a network of servers all over the world, which instantly measure each viewer’s connection and deliver the best quality video with the least buffering possible.

Works on Every Device
This means crystal clear video anytime, anywhere, on any device.

Search friendly
Allowing you to embed videos on your own site enhances your search visibility and helps you get the best from your video content. 

With Wistia you can ensure bandwidth requirements are fulfilled by Wistia without placing load on the website. Videos can be added to any content page using Wistia’s embed code and it also ensures that the videos are found by search engines and allow the videos to be attributed to your website.

However, this doesn’t mean YouTube is redundant; YouTube is still an excellent platform for you to set up your own channel and monitor performance. YouTube also has one main advantage – it’s free!
