However, there’s a number of competing video options that offer things Youtube does not have.
You probably already know about Vimeo, and Brightcove is very good as well.
These two platforms offer varying degrees of more control and robustness over your video and let the viewer focus on YOUR video as opposed to the other videos Youtube will display around your video.
There’s a another video service I was looking at, Panopto, it offers a dizzying array of features that corporate trainers and marketers might want to consider.
What I am most impressed with is its video search capabilities – you can search inside a video for words as Panopto has automatic speech recognition. Quite impressive. Furthermore, any word that appears in the video Panopto indexes and enables a search on that word as well.
Analytics, custom branding and mobile video playing are all part of what Panopto offers.
