Best Video Hosting Service For Sales Letter

12 replies
I can't remember the video hosting service that uploads customers videos to all their servers in various countries to ensure less buffering where ever a viewer watches it.

I really don't want buffering as I have seen on other VSL's. I have heard of Cloud and RMTP but confused.

Any one know or any good advice please as looking to launch a product in the next 2 weeks.

Thanks

  • Personally, I just use YouTube but I've heard people say Amazon hosting is pretty good.

    Amazon S3 is by far the best solution for hosting your own videos. It's fully scalable (up and down). You only pay for what you use each month. plus it's reliable!

      I quite agree. I use Amazon S3 - which means I retain the copyright for the videos also. And the stream quite well and as stated is very, very cheap.

      YouTube is good - as long as you decide that you no longer own the copyright of the videos as any video uploaded to YouTube means you've accepted they own the copyright.

      Hence - I tend to use a mixture of Amazon S3 and YouTube - videos I want to retain the copyright I upload to Amazon S3 - any that I don't mind if YouTube owns the copyright I upload to YouTube.

    You're probably thinking of Amazon S3 with Cloudfront enabled.

    Also consider Wistia (a little spendier than S3).

    YouTube does the job for me.
    You get the best of both worlds - traffic via YouTube from anyone who sees your video there or in the organic searches as well as any traffic you are generating to your video.

      I forgot to mention Amazon is still offering a free year of usage for all new accounts and after that my average monthly bill rarely goes over $1.00

      There's also Marketplace there that has software, most free of charge, that make it easier to work with videos through them instead on directly through Amazon's account panel.

    Hi,

    I would either use YouTube or Amazon S3.

    Depending on what you are doing you mgiht want to use LeadPlayer alongside YouTube to add opt in forms and clickable calls to action directly inside the videos.

    If you don't want anyone downloading your video to their computer, go with Viddler. If it doesn't matter, then Viddler, Vimeo, or Amazon S3 are all good for sales videos. In some cases, Youtube works also.
