Privacy Options

With our privacy options, it's easy to make your videos public, private or password protected so you can have full control of who can see your videos. You can even have multiple logins for each video and track every login. You can even embed password and login protected videos while still requiring the password or login before the viewer can watch the video.

Domain Whitelist

If you want to have your videos only play on your website, it's easy to do with our domain whitelist feature.

SSL Embeds

Does your site use SSL? Our embed codes support SSL so you never have to worry about mixed content warnings.

Customize Colors

Almost all of the colors in our player are customizable allowing you to match our player with your branding. You can save all of your customizations as presets to quickly pick settings and you can even set a default preset if you find you use the same settings every time.

Playback Behavior

You can control playback behavior such as what buttons are shown in the player, auto playing the video, what kind of controls to show before the video starts, and completely customizable post-play calls to action.

Mobile Playback

We designed our player so that it works not only on a computer but on mobile devices as well. Our player supports just about any device that supports HTML5 video including the iPhone, iPad, and most Android devices.

CDN Delivery

We use a content distribution network to ensure the best video playback possible. We use servers around the world so that no matter where your viewers are, they'll get the best possible performance. We have servers throughout the United States, Amsterdam, Dublin, Frankfurt, London, Madrid, Milan, Paris, Stockholm, Hong Kong, Osaka, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo, and Sao Paulo.

HD Quality

If your source videos are HD, they will be encoded in brilliant HD quality so they look just as good on the web as they did when you made them.

Format Support

We support just about any type of video file you can throw at us. If we don't, it's likely that we'll be adding support for it very soon.

Guide your viewers

Guide your viewers after you video has finished with completely customizable post-play calls to action. Add links, images, or any HTML you'd like.
