Video Platform

I'm looking to build an app that leverages video and was hoping to get some advice on a video platform. Ultimately I'd like to be able to upload, share and track analytics around a video, so I was recommended the YouTube IFrame Player API - does anyone have any experience with this? Or do you recommend another platform?

I'm looking for something cost effective and scalable, so YouTube would seem like a good fit.

Thanks,
Sati

Hey Sati, could you please elaborate a bit more on the context in which you want to use this platform? Like how are the videos going to be used? Mobile? Web only?

ooyala.com and wistia.com both have video analytics.

I would also have a look at: - LiveRail - Kaltura - Ooyala The only downside I see to using YouTube is that their player may not be compatible with every site's video standards (like VPaid, a video ad standard), but that may not matter for what you are trying to do / build. Also: Kaltura & LiveRail may have minimum fees, so not saying they are all free. Hope that helps, Chris

@brahm - the goal pretty simple I'm hoping. Create a video (could be made from mobile or not), upload and share so the viewer can see from web or mobile device.

Thanks all - do you know which of these platforms can be white-labeled? I want it to be transparent to the user and definitely ad free. This is a B2B, not consumers.

I’m probably looking at your profile because you are similar to other myBoosters.com clients
This might help: Sociagram (http://sociagram.com) is a user generatedvideoplatform. We make it easy for companies/apps to incorporatevideo(web/mobile) recording, storage and playback.

Sati,

Here is a list of white label video providers that I have worked with:

Onescreen
Brightcove
Kaltura

When you used these services, you can upload video content and create players and playlists to embed in your site/blog. All these services scale their players for responsive web to mobile optimization.

With the three above mentioned services, you can insert pre-roll ads in front of the content if need be and all have analytics dashboards to assess viewership. I know that Brightcove has an Omniture Site Catalyst integration and I'm sure the other have an open API you can use to get your data into SiteCatalyst or possibly Google Analytics. In fact, I just checked and Kaltura has a plugin for Google Analytics with documentation here:http://knowledge.kaltura.com/google-analytics-kaltura-player.

Looks like Ooyala, our of Canada, is a competitor the above mentioned players.

You can also use a service like Vimeo, which has a premium tier as well, but you'd probably get better analytics out of a true hosted video platform than you would Vimeo, which may give you some basic analytics, but is not as robust. But, I could be wrong...you'd have to do a little investigating to find out.
