Brightcove Video Platform reviews
Beoordeeld op 20-12-2018
Easiest video platform ever
Pluspunten: I use Brightcove daily as a Digital Production Manager. The entire interface is intuitive and user-friendly, from uploading videos to creating playlists to manipulating players. Their gallery players are my favorite aspect because it layouts playlists in a clean, modern player and easy to integrate into landing pages. Also their customer support is top-notch. When I have trouble with customizing a player or troubleshooting why a set of them weren't working on my webpages, their engineers provided quick, thorough support.
Minpunten: What I like least is the limited analytics available. Most often than not, our clients want to know how many unique views they received or how many people viewed the video at specific time markers. Brightcove, unfortunately, doesn't supply this data.

It handles the traffic and looks great
Pluspunten: I love how easy it is to embed video hosted on Brightcove in our website or resource center. We pull video directly from brightcove into streams in uberflip, and it requires no work beyond the initial setup. I really appreciate all of the options in players as well, from adding logos, skins, playback options, etc., it's easy to customize. Video is such an important part of our business, Brightcove is also by extension!
Minpunten: 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.

Brightcove gives all of our video content a good home
Pluspunten: My favorite thing about Brightcove is the social functionality that allows me to publish videos to Youtube, Twitter, and other platforms. I don't have to export video and import it elsewhere. It makes sharing simple.
Minpunten: My least favorite thing about Brightcove has to do with our users who upload duplicate content, or who don't use proper tags. 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.

Good video management platform that could use better reporting
Pluspunten: Easy to use video hosting platform. Many upload customization options, and a great one-click landing page option. Easy to implement on landing pages and track within playlists.
Minpunten: Reporting methods are hard to get video-to-video comparison reports without using workarounds that involve a ton of manual work.

Used to host videos on website.

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

Generally positive, but a bit finicky at times.
Pluspunten: 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.
Minpunten: I can live with the slow server speed and awkward interface, but oh my god the search feature is unforgivable.

Pluspunten: Robust, easy to use system, very good for hosting and managing on-demand video. API useful for advanced integrations
Minpunten: Support is appalling / almost non-existent. Feature enhancements come at a slow pace and the good ones tend to be at extra cost

We're finally able to publish to a website, as well as social media platforms.
Pluspunten: It's great to be able to publish to a website, as well as social media platforms. We used to have to use several programs/platforms, but Brightcove helps eliminate extra steps.
Minpunten: Everything is great, until you need to search for a video. Unless you know the exact tags you've used, good luck!

Great video hosting platform
Pluspunten: We really liked having a secure place to store video files. It's a nice professional way to share videos.
Minpunten: Embedding on third party sites an be a drag. It also doesn't have native integrations with other big platforms like HubSpot. Wistia which is another great platform does.
