Perfect for displaying videos in online courses!

Reviewed a year ago

The MOST important feature in my mind: extraordinary customer support! I've asked them several questions, and every time, the answer is fast and thorough!

Pros

We evaluated a number of alternatives, from YouTube to AWS and several in between, but settled on Spotlightr. Our recommended tech stack includes WordPress and LearnDash, so Spotlightr fits in seamlessly. The most useful features, in my opinion:- ability to add questions during video, as overlays (several options)- inability for users to download the video (who knows what they'd do with it?!)- cost-effective, while having nice features such as custom branding and ability to stream from other services (though I prefer to use their streaming as well)

Cons

I'd like for the upload speed to be faster, but it's just because I'm impatient!

Vendor response

Thank you Scott! We appreciate you!

very slow to load

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

lots of features. great idea in theory. excellent lifetime pricing deal offered occasionally

Cons

After clicking Play, the videos take 4-6 seconds to start playing! This happens whether I upload the video directly to Vooplayer, or use it as a skin for a YouTube player. This is a confusing and terrible user experience and makes the software unusable for me as it stands. Very much hoping they fix this, as it seems pretty great otherwise. Also, small gripes - it's not clear which setting changes create a change in the embed code and require updating. - after editing a video, they don't just give you the embed code. you have to go back to the My Videos page, select the video and then copy the embed code from there. Would be much better to give me a one click to copy embed code button after making edits to the settings.

Can't find a comparable alternative

Reviewed 5 years ago

vooPlayer was one of the smartest investments for my business. Video marketing is essential in today's digital landscape, and with its low-cost, premium-featureset, vooPlayer is positioned to be the ideal choice for any small business trying to compete for audience attention. Do yourself a favor and give it a free trial to see if it's right for you. Can always use an alternative service if not.

Pros

vooPlayer offers the best security if you want to protect your videos. They use HLS encryption (which unlike other video providers) prevents unwanted downloading and external sharing. Even pricier video hosting providers can't compete with this. I also love the feature-set offered for the "Startup" plan. You get what I believe are Enterprise-grade options for a lower price than Vimeo Pro.

Cons

Because there's so many options, I sometimes get confused with the UI. Also, I'd love to setup a default template for ALL settings, and tweak on a video-per-video basis. This is possible with some settings, but not all. Additionally, sometimes a video will glitch during playback, but have only encountered this a few times in many playbacks.

Have used this over 2 years!

Reviewed 2 years ago

Spotlightr has been a blessing. Loaded features at ever more affordable rates has been the biggest selling points. Great software for someone looking to host their videos online!

Pros

The thing that sold us for spotlightr was its cost structure along with the features it provided. There were a lot! We were able to use the capture gates along with creating beautiful video embeds onto our website. It also has a great integration with multiple tools for example zapier.

Cons

The analytics sometimes tended to misrepresent what we thought should be the actual metrics.

Couldn't Be Any More Satisfied

Reviewed a year ago

Truly amazing software and people... Can't recommend it enough.

Pros

The ease of use. The pricing is very fair and competitive with other top players in the industry. And above-all, their customer support, you can feel that they truly care about helping their customers.

Cons

There really isn't anything I can say off hand, but if I had a wishlist of things they or any company can improve in, its speed.... Because some of our viewers are located all over the world. Depending on where they are located, it may at times be slightly slow, but not enough to warrant any complaints.. As we are truly happy with everything, just speed is something I think we all can say is relevant in any product, industry, system.

In 1 word: excellent. Wish there werer more companies like this.

Pros

Front-end, back-end, pricing, features, changelog. A solid 1st impression. That hasn't changed in the past 5 years I've been using it.

Cons

Can't think of anything. There have been times I found things to be less intuitive. 1 support ticket solved that. Every single time.

Vooplayer is a really good alternative for wistia.

Reviewed 6 years ago

Customize the video experience, branding the player and use marketing on video

Pros

Vooplayer is a really good tool for marketer and media who need to get on the next level with videos. You can use it with other people video content or get secure and private videos. With Vooplayer you can - Customize youtube videos or other video service - remove ads from players - host secure and private videos - Add marketing tools on video like lead captures - view analytics - player's branding. - add to calls Hosting video? No, i choose it because the players customization, branding and marketing tools One of the best video players on the market

Cons

They need to offert more features and improve the speed. They pricing is not expensive but should be more accesible. They try to focus on hosting videos but most of the people pass on that, because youtube is insanly fast, you dont have limits and also people can find your videos so is an extra exposure The solution for host videos is good if you wanna keep private, but most of the people pick other solutions. On the player personalization is good but should be amazing. They should offert more config and extras. Also, they dont support amp

Reasonably priced video marketing host

Reviewed 5 years ago

vooPlayer is at the core of the online courses I've been building in one of my businesses. It allows me to securely host the videos, and also get my marketing message across to users and engage them further for my business.

Pros

vooPlayer is built around more than just serving videos to users. It's built around those who want to market their videos, or sell them. There are features designed to gather leads, upsell other products, etc. And the interface is relatively easy to use, if not a bit scattered at times. I also love that you can add most of the features to videos hosted elsewhere, like Youtube.

Cons

Storage limits are a bit restricting, and if you don't purchase a plan with their turbo bandwidth, the videos you host on the vooPlayer servers can be a little slower. Video hosting of this kind isn't cheap, and vooPlayer is still one of the more reasonably priced options out there. But it would be nice to have slightly higher limits as the core limits are pretty low.

An impressive player

Reviewed 5 years ago

I use it and and I am happy with it. It has been difficult for me to find a good video player that looks professional, it is easy to use and fast enough. I have tried with four before (including Youtube, where I did not like the advertising). And it addition I can AB test videos in lading pages or blog posts to keep improving.

Pros

I like how nice, customizable and how much accurate feedback can give the player. I use in conjunction with other tools like publit.io to host the videos, also could be done on youtube. And I am happy with the result. The player offers very good statistics about the videos (from visits to know average time watched, when people stop watching, AB testing,...). Tons of features that I would only expect on very expensive tools, here I could get included. It looks ideal for video marketers.

Cons

I am very obsessed with the speed. As I am afraid to send people to a page that can be buffering or not loading fast. First time that I installed I was unhappy with speed. But now the player has a new look and I think loads faster.

So happy to have moved to Spotlightr

Reviewed 2 years ago

Reduced our customer service tickets by using Spotlightr to host and embed videos for our event. No reported technical problems or international access problems.

Pros

Super smooth experience using Spotlightr to host/embed videos for our online summit/conference (the biggest ever - 122k). Top-tier customer service. They understood our needs as a business. Great quality and ease of use. Moved off Vimeo with ease and haven't looked back. The pricing model is more in line with our business needs.

Cons

Looking forward to improved reporting features.

The best video protect app

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

vooPlayer help me prevent video download from the internet. Just using its hosting or combining with Amazon S3 (encryption). Moreover, it has the domain whitelist function support. Even screen record is useless if I disable full-screen function in vooPlayer. I have unlimited storage when I host my videos in Amazon S3 that is awesome. It's must-have for any coaches and content marketer.

Cons

The vooPlayer hosting is expensive with 50GB only for Enterprise Plan. Sometimes, it's crash when uploading videos.

Customized videos on your site

Reviewed 6 years ago

It's a good tool, does what it says it does, I just don't like the plethora of pay-walls for some of the cooler features. At least make it a little more affordable.

Pros

You don't need to embed Youtube videos on your site anymore. You can just upload them to Vooplayer, customize the play button, etc, and you'll have essentially a "white label" video on your site.

Cons

There are so many pay-walls to this. I got the AppSumo deal and it's great for what it does. But there are so many limitations because they want you to upgrade. And it's really expensive for how much I actually use it.

Less Expensive Alternative to Wistia

Reviewed 6 years ago

VooPlayer is a great way to convert your visitors with video content and match the look and feel of your brand.

Pros

Lots of options to customize your video player, from design to functionality.

Cons

The structure of how the videos are organized could be improved.
