Pros

But since I am not the one paying for it, it is not a concern. If you can afford it, great - it is excellent quality software and video hosting.
It is very user friendly and intuitive. The staff at Wistia are awesome and responsive to inquiries.
Wistia is a great no-nonsense video host for professionals, and it's ability to embed on any website and other integrations is excellent.

Pros

I love the ease of use and the every expanding capabilities I keep on learning new wonderful features and it has really benefited my website e-learning experience.
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.
Highly responsive and helpful customer service. Provided details of an issue we were having with their code and a response received within a few hours promising to resolve the issue within the week.

Cons

The only complaint I have is that the reporting was not always 100% accurate.
It's rather expensive for small businesses. For people new to video, their newsletters are incredibly misleading.
The downside for us is that we aren't a place for making a lot of video presentations so it was more than we needed.

Cons

This is a confusing and terrible user experience and makes the software unusable for me as it stands.
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.
I was shocked that when I was on the trial option I receive and answer to my question IMMEDIATELY.

I've tried it, but found other solutions for my needs

Reviewed 3 years ago

Wistia was great to use and easy to use, but it came down to how much I was paying for what I was needing. If you're an organization that has the expenses to support the cost of Wistia, go for it. If you're a small business or a business that watches every nickel and dime you spend, consider other sources.

Pros

Wistia offers a ton of features, but none that swayed my decision in using it to house my video content. It's clean, reliable, it works, and does a great job from a marketing standpoint. It's easy to use and that kind of reliability and ease of use only comes when you pay premium for a Saas product like Wistia

Cons

It's way expensive. My of my needs could be used with Youtube, Vimeo, Spotlightr (formerly known as VooPlayer), Amazon's S3, or other services that provide their own video hosting platform.

A Must for Any Video Marketer

Reviewed 6 years ago

Positive

Pros

Not just a mere video hosting platform. Is a video marketer tool to convert. Fast video import from Vimeo, Youtube and Wistia. Comprehensive analytics for media tracking and performance monitoring. Can potentially increase site conversion for seasoned marketers.

Cons

Pretty pricey but totally understand any Saas that deals with video hosting and marketing has high upkeeps.
