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

There's lots of pros, like you can make awesome videos like DVD/Blu-ray openings, lift videos, gaming videos, etc. You can also like, share and comment on people's videos and community posts as well.
It is the most popular video sharing platform so it is the best way to reach your audience. YouTube is easy to use and allows for sharing content that you cannot email due to the file size of video.
I can easily saved and download my favorite videos. There are so many movies in all languages on Youtube for all people and this is a good strategy to connect all people to one app.

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

It has been accused of not doing enough to remove content that violates community guidelines, which led to concerns about the impact on content.
I really hate the copyright thing. It makes me unable to upload videos with the songs I like.
I feel YouTube should not be allowed to censor and violate freedom of speech.

Dead simple video hosting and analytics!

Pros

We use wistia for any video content that is extremely important for a user to see. There's tracking and analytics, CTAs, and a lot of flexibility with their video. For example: I can make different things happen when users are at the 50% mark of a video because of how easy Wistia makes. Plus, it's so easy to gather analytics in their dashboard.

Cons

Wistia is pretty pricey compared to the others. And sometimes, the video doesn't load as fast as Youtube/Vimeo.

Affordable and allows for free users to upload and test before committing to a paid plan. So far so good.

Cons

Solid At Protecting Content

Reviewed 5 years ago

Wistia has been great to help secure video content and make it look more original than if we hosted on other platforms like Vimeo or Youtube.

Pros

Wistia is by far the best major player at protecting the content you put up. There are always ways to work around security if someone really wants to download your content, but so far Wistia has been the best.

Cons

The price point isn't cheap when you consider you could host for free on other platforms, but it's a small price to pay to have content that looks professional. As long as you're earning an income based on the video content you're storing on the site, it shouldn't be a big issue.

Wistia is great for embedding video on your site and the stats are excellent

Reviewed 7 years ago

All of our company videos are stored and organized on Wistia and embedded on our website. This includes webinar recordings. Biggest benefit for us is a branded video experience on our website without distractions of other brand logos on the video player. I would give Wistia a higher rating if videos shared better on social channels.

Pros

If you want to embed videos on your site so that they blend in wiht your brand/web experience, Wistia is a top choice. And if you want details on usage / viewing stats Wistia is also top notch. We use Wistia for our company videos and also for client work for eLearning projects. It is easy to segregate videos by project so organizing videos is easy. And videos always look great on our website. The viewing stats are also excellent. We know which videos get watched the most but also when during videos people stop watching and what viewer engagement is. This is helping for us deciding how to improve our videos.

Cons

Wistia videos don't share well on social channels. I would not pick Wistia if your main goal is to share on social...use YouTube for that.

Excellent video hosting platform

Reviewed 8 months ago

It’s an excellent platform for hosting and sharing videos and brilliant for embedding on web pages - they look far more slick than YouTube videos. The new auto-caption/transcribe feature is very handy too!

Pros

You can host videos in channels or projects, with channels providing a great public-facing playlist. The platform is really easy to navigate and very user-friendly. It’s easy to store and organise your videos and makes for a great hosting platform. The new auto-caption/transcribe feature is very handy too! It could do with some improvements, but I assume it works on machine learning and will become more accurate over time.

Cons

The only negative is being charged extra once you go over you allowance of videos. We are currently having to do an inventory of videos to determine if there are any that we can host internally (any that do not need to be shared publicly).

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.

Great Business Video Hosting Platform

Reviewed 5 years ago

Great. Love the backend data we get about people watching our videos.

Pros

Gives our business the opportunity to host a large library of video that we can customize and embed on any site. Gives incredible back end stats and information on watches, engagements, and more. The videos are branded by our business only and we don't have to worry about irrelevant videos autoplaying after like we would with a YouTube.

Cons

Of course by using Wistia, you lose some of the SEO clout that comes along with using a YouTube but it depends on your business if that works or not.

Wistia - To Video or Not To Video?

Reviewed 8 years ago

I like the idea of video. But I'm not sure that setting up my own "video" gig with lighting and the tripod and my iphone is at the quality that I want it to be "yet". I think there needs to be a bit more editing tools inside Wistia to make it stand a part from say..youtube. I mean, I take videos with my ipad and upload them into YouTube..and they seem to be about the same quality. Just need a little more "magic" to want to pay for a service at this time.

Pros

Easy to crop down videos

Cons

Needs to have more editing to make it look better. Take my so-so video and make it awesome with graphics and graphic packages..etc.

Excellent hosting service. Not 100% compatible with every 3rd Party. But close enough :)

Reviewed 8 years ago

We've had Wistia for over a year and I'm very satisfied with the product. While you don't necessarily gain the organic traffic you might get from YouTube, the analytics you get from videos embedded on your site are perfect. The CRM implementation with HubSpot is excellent and it's an all around great product/service.

Pros

Lots of features, powerful data analytics, very easy to use, lots of customization, good admin panel with multiple user roles.

Cons

Some third party implementation isn't quite there yet (random third party WordPress plugins), but that isn't entirely Wistia's fault, but still a con. They also seem to have a good amount of data down time. No data is lost, but once or twice a week it gets a little backlogged. Still, not a huge issue and it's fixed within 24 hours.

Easy to Learn, Easy to Integrate with Hubspot

Reviewed 7 years ago
Pros

My videos look so much better embedded on my website than they did with YouTube or Vimeo. It's super easy to create playlists, and I love that you can customize the appearance of the videos and the playlists. It's easy to embed different sizes and styles - which makes my website look much cleaner.

Cons

My only complaint is about its integration with Hubspot, which requires Hubspot Enterprise in order to be fully effective. I can still embed easily and include videos in my emails, but can't trigger workflows based on video activity, which wasn't made clear prior to upgrading Wistia. So, not really a Wistia issue, but I wish they'd get on Hubspot to fix that!

Great for an enrichment of user behaviour on video content

Reviewed 4 years ago

Overall - very positive! it's a simple tool with a huge impact on the engagements of users. so we're still using youtube videos for integrated traffic on the site whereas Wistia is used in a more strategic way on the site / landing pages and with deeper video content that relate to the later stages of the buying cycle to add scoring to the overall prospect.

Pros

1) using wistia to enrich the customer journey's data in understanding their overall engagement is really great. Wistia's API is really easy to use and integrates with other MA tools which allows you to get a better understanding of the scoring / engagement of a prospect in their overall buying cycle (while providing info such as watch time, play rate, engagement rate ...)

Cons

the design of the player is not fully customisable which is not always ideal for admins / marketers if you're trying for it to fit in a very slick way with your site / landing page

If you can afford it, A+

Reviewed 7 years ago
Pros

YouTube looks amateurish and has terrible stats. So that's out. Out of the available alternatives, Wistia, Vimeo, and self-hosted video rank highest. Vimeo for Business and Wistia are comparable, but Wistia is cleaner, has a better user interface, and, most importantly, claims to do much better at SEO. So if the price tag isn't a problem, go with Wistia. If not, check out Vimeo for Business or Vimeo Pro.

Cons

It's rather expensive for small businesses. For people new to video, their newsletters are incredibly misleading. They love to post about how video doesn't have to be of a high quality, how you can use your webcam for things, etc. Some of their blog posts are great, but do please keep in mind that their business model is to get companies to upload as many videos as possible for any reason at all.

Finally! A great alternative to YouTube and Vimeo for Videos

Reviewed 9 years ago

The nice thing about Wistia is that it allows you to track which of your videos are actually seen, which parts of viewed (or skipped, or rewatched), and by whom (or at least by which IP locations). The statistical part means that you can use this tracking to make better videos that have a higher engagement or a better conversion ratio. Another great thing that I like, which I do not get with...

Pros

Stats, stats and more stats! Able to have a Turnstile (to request a viewer's contact info) Can create a Call to Action Easy to Embed in a Website Affordable Lots of areas to customize

Cons

Cannot really think of any cons. It would be great if it were more seamlessly integrated into GetDrip. Another thing that I see with my ScreenFlow (screen capture software for Mac), is that I can click "Publish To" and send the rendered video directly to YouTube and Vimeo. It'd save me time if I could also publish directly to Wistia.

If YouTube and Vimeo could only be this good...

Reviewed 13 years ago

I cannot imagine a more perfect solution for anyone who needs a video management system for content that needs to be kept private or behind a paywall. Even if that is not a requirement, the extensive tools, superb mobile capability of their native management system, and great customer service make Wistia a "dream".

Pros

Wistia provides an incredibly powerful and flexible way for entrepreneurs and businesses to manage, distribute, and monetize their video content. Unlike YouTube and Vimeo, the key differentiator is the fact that you have absolute control over the location where you content can be accessed, embedded, or downloaded. Likewise, you have complete control over the look and feel of your embed design, popups,...

Wistia offers awesome features for a very reasonable price. It's super easy to use, with valuable analytics and various customization options. If you need to update a video, it's no problem -- you can replace it without changing the link. They truly focus on video marketing whereas YouTube is really just for hosting and views. Plus, the customer service is top notch! (And if you ever get a chance to read their blog, you'll see these guys are video marketing experts)

Cons

Sometimes it can be a little buggy when adding captions to video. I also wish there was a way to schedule videos social instead of posting one by one - but that would just be a nice to have.
