What makes SproutVideo different from free choices like YouTube or Vimeo?
SproutVideo is differentiated in many ways. We do not run ads on any videos or live streams hosted on our platform; we do not link to other “related” content on our platform after yours concludes; we do not put our logo or branding on the video player; we provide all the tools you need for video marketing and security; we offer hosted landing pages and websites to quickly and easily share your videos. Plus, we provide live customer support with dedicated Customer Success representatives.
Is it better to host my own videos or use a video hosting site?
Self-hosting videos requires uploading and managing video content on the same server as your website. However, self-hosting also requires a lot of time and resources. Without significant technical investment and support, self-hosted video content is vulnerable to security threats, slows down site performance, and increases costs with high storage needs. Videos aren’t guaranteed to work on all devices and generally will not perform well when the viewer’s location is distant from the server.
In order to efficiently deliver videos to as many viewers as possible, they must be encoded, compressed, and processed into many different formats. Videos must also be dynamically served in those different formats to ensure a seamless experience. While this is possible to do when self-hosting, it's very costly.
When hosting your videos with SproutVideo, all of this is technical heavy lifting is seamlessly handled for you.
Can I host on-demand videos (VOD) and live streams with SproutVideo?
Yes! All SproutVideo plans include on-demand video hosting and live streaming with an ad-free, customizable player. Your live stream broadcasts can automatically be converted to an on-demand video when your broadcast has ended, so your viewers won't have to miss a minute. Upload videos and broadcast live, all in one platform.
Are there any viewer limits on videos or live streams?
We do not limit the number of people that can watch any of your videos or live streams hosted by SproutVideo. You can easily keep track of how popular your videos and live streams are with your account usage and analytics reports, which include detailed information about bandwidth and live delivery.
However, you may choose to limit your audience by enabling login protection for your content. When your videos and live streams are login protected, viewers must enter credentials to watch. You have complete control over the creation of viewer login credentials to allow access your login protected content, as well as the number of times each viewer may login to watch your content. The subscription plan you select will determine the number of viewer logins you are able to create.
You may also want to restrict where your videos and live streams can be accessed by whitelisting specific domains, IP addresses, or geographic locations. Learn more about restricting your audience and access to your video content.
What support is available to me if I need help with my video hosting setup?
In addition to our extensive platform knowledge base, our best-in-class Customer Success team can be contacted any time via email, and via live chat during US East Coast business hours.
