Amazing solution to upload and track video marketing metrics

2021-01-13

Overall I have had a very positive experience and Brightcove as a product has really exceeded my expectations as far as user interface, video uploading process, reporting by individual video content and metrics sharing and exporting.

Pros

The ability to quickly and efficiently upload larger video files and mp4 files, create a video library and copy video embed code that content can be leveraged and published across other platforms.

Cons

I would like to have the ability to create customized permissions based on roles like marketing, content creator and admin roles.

Easiest video platform ever

2018-12-20

Pros

The entire interface is intuitive and user-friendly, from uploading videos to creating playlists to manipulating players.

Cons

What I like least is the limited analytics available.

Brightcove gives all of our video content a good home

2018-04-10

Pros

I don't have to export video and import it elsewhere.

Cons

My least favorite thing about Brightcove has to do with our users who upload duplicate content, or who don't use proper tags.

It's no YouTube

2019-09-30

I would much rather convince our organization to swap over to exclusively use YouTube for all of our video needs, but there is still some value to be had from using Brightcove if you aren't ready/willing to go all in on YouTube.

Pros

It does a decent job at getting the analytics you need, if you're patient enough to wait for who knows how long to get the information back.

Cons

The reporting isn't super flexible, robust, or timely.

Mixed feelings

2018-05-21

Pros

Robust, easy to use system, very good for hosting and managing on-demand video. API useful for advanced integrations

Cons

Support is appalling / almost non-existent. Feature enhancements come at a slow pace and the good ones tend to be at extra cost

Good video management platform that could use better reporting

2018-03-05

Pros

Easy to implement on landing pages and track within playlists.

Cons

Reporting methods are hard to get video-to-video comparison reports without using workarounds that involve a ton of manual work.

We're finally able to publish to a website, as well as social media platforms.

2018-04-19

Pros

It's great to be able to publish to a website, as well as social media platforms.

Cons

Everything is great, until you need to search for a video.

Generally positive, but a bit finicky at times.

2017-12-18

Pros

I would view this as a barebones solution. It does what it needs to, gives you what you need and what you ask. They have made big improvements with their new client, but there must be better out there.

Cons

I can live with the slow server speed and awkward interface, but oh my god the search feature is unforgivable.

It handles the traffic and looks great

2019-07-17

Pros

I love how easy it is to embed video hosted on Brightcove in our website or resource center.

Cons

This is totally on my organization and not on Brightcove, but we have a lot of users in our instance. These users have caused issues by changing things in Brightcove, which cause issues on our website or on our resource center. I have not figured out how to, or if it is possible to, approve/deny changes made to videos before they are published.
