Celebrating Earth Day

Like many growing companies, sometimes we get so caught up in the world of video and technology and startups and the hectic pace of city life, that we lose sight of the bigger, more fundamentally important things out there. In fact, I’m referring specifically to some of the biggest, most important things on this planet: trees.

To celebrate Earth Day in 2016, SproutVideo is launching a new initiative to give back to the planet by donating a portion of the proceeds from new video hosting accounts opened on our platform to the National Forest Foundation (NFF) to help restore America’s National Forests. Keep reading to learn more about how this program works, and some fun facts about trees!

New Embed Codes Features

Just in time for the holidays, we released some seriously awesome, incredibly useful features that are totally worth celebrating!

We now offer three different types of embed codes (responsive, email, and lightbox embeds), custom post-play screens on SproutVideo landing pages and video websites, and we changed how some of our most popular security features work to make them more flexible. We also gave the video detail page a serious facelift, and updated the appearance of the rest of the app as well.
