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

We have thousands of videos, one video can be in 20+ languages, and when users aren't adding them in a uniform manner, searching them can be a real hassle.

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

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.

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. Unless you know the exact tags you've used, good luck!

Generally positive, but a bit finicky at times.

2017-12-18

Pros

I would view this as a barebones solution.

Cons

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

Tanner Luxner, CSCA

Good video management platform that could use better reporting

2018-03-05

Pros

Easy to use video hosting platform.

Cons

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

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.

Used to host videos on website.

2018-03-13

Pros

Video is a big part of modern websites so a tool that lets you host your videos (without a logo watermark) is useful.
