Ooyala Flex Media Platform

Ooyala provides the opportunity to scale and manage multiple services and platforms in the organization with its integration services with internal tools like Slack and multiple other applications. Also, it helps you understand the views, reach, and engagement with the videos that help you define your next campaign strategy. In my experience, Ooyala could be less appropriate for managing URLs and unreliability may make you upload videos more than once.

Panopto

There are easier tools out there that do similar things and are faster without having the budgeting wildcard of Panopto's pay-per-view pricing. While the editing feature is nice, it is pretty temperamental and does not integrate or export to a format that is compatible with other programs such as Adobe After Effect, Premiere, Final Cut or Camtasia. That said if you're working with a smaller budget/audience Panopto might be a friendlier alternative to something like Kaltura.

Cons

Ooyala Flex Media Platform

  • Ooyala's integration with the ad serving platform is not as good in terms of user interface and user experience.
  • The user interface could be improved (making it more like YouTube and Vimeo).
  • The feature that provides scheduling could be improved to be seamless for publishing to Instagram.

Panopto

  • Automated closed captioning is not very accurate.
  • Human transcribing for captioning is cost prohibitive at scale.
  • Annotation tools for the screen capture would be useful.

Panopto has been quick to answer any questions, but their rollouts and updates have caused issues where we felt a little blindsided by unexpected changes. Their development cycle is slow and often their promises for future updates have been extremely slow or never come.

Alternatives Considered

Ooyala Flex Media Platform

We have used all the rival products. Ooyala has been our favourite for years, but feel like they have stalled in new product development.
Ricky Sutton | TrustRadius Reviewer

Panopto

At the end of the day, it came down to affordability for us. Panopto is affordable for smaller institutions. It is also geared primarily at lecture capture compared to many of the others that are first a media library. Panopto's focus is also education, so they do understand our audience.
