Where should your videos be uploaded and hosted online?
I was having a bear of a time with this decision for a new venture that I will announce in coming months.
What it comes down to is that it really matters what you want to do with it.
Don’t think there is only one solution to the question.
Here’s a great review by DV Guru of 10 of the most popular sites online (compare them with a simpler, less extensive review of five of them here).
Movavi has a nice chart highlighting the point that your purpose should dictate what service, you use.
I actively use Youtube personally because of the site’s popularity. Of the others, I might otherwise personally use Vimeo because I am not necessarily desperate for views, instead I’m searching for a clean player to host and post here.
However, for a more business-related venture, Youtube can be used as a promotional tool far and away better than the others, but content producers need to be wary of ownership agreements. For podcasting purposes, Blip.TV offers a variety of options through ITunes and other podcatching servers.
More on this as I introduce some other projects.
Any thoughts? What service do you use and why?
