How the SproutVideo Free Trial Works

SproutVideo offers a free trial account so you can test out our video hosting platform, and make sure we are a good fit for your project.

The free trial gives you access to all platform features. It is equivalent to the Forest plan, which includes exportable data, IP address restrictions, and more. You can test out all the functionality of our video hosting platform, such as uploading videos, embedding videos, analytics reporting, our security features, video marketing tools, and creating your own customized video website.


While the free trial offers access to most of the features available on our Forest plan, there are a few limitations. The free trial includes:


During the free trial, you have full access to all of our resources, such as our help section, live chat, and email support.

Activating Your Trial

You can activate your trial account to a paid account at anytime during the 30 day trial. When you activate, you can choose the plan that is right for you. You will need to enter your credit card details, and your card will be charged as soon as it is activated for your first month of video hosting.

There is a 21 day period after your trial expires during which you can still activate your trial account and recover all your work. However, during that 21 day period your videos will stop playing unless you activate the account. Here is more information about activating your trial account.
