Let's say you are on a webinar or online meeting and want to take several screen shots of what is on the screen and save all of them. Rather than opening Windows snipping tool (or other free products) and needing to save each one as fast as you can, SnagIt saves all of them and you can go back and delete the ones you don't want. Capture the entire screen quickly or do a region for only a portion of the screen. Very handy. SnagIt also provides easy ways to add your edits to the screen shot in a professional way. Rather than trying to "hand draw" a circle around the item you want to bring attention to, you can use professional tools for circles and rectangles to highlight a specific area for someone to see right away when looking at this screen shot

Vidyard

Vidyard is best used for 1:1 sales videos. Because the video is very personal and raw, they don't perform great in a big marketing email blast, although it certainly can be used that way if you need. If you have a brief message that you want to get across, and entice a prospect to watch your video, it's very easy to have a short GIF with a smiling face and a wave in your email so that you get your prospect to view your video

Pros

Snagit

  • Being able to take screen captures quickly and with just a keystroke is a prime feature. I took several screenshots just yesterday to show folks, which saved me from taking the time to meet with [...] everyone.
  • Obviously recording and sharing video is Snagit's strength. It does this as well as any product I have used. It is not an editor but there are a lot of capture features that cover just about any situation.
  • One great feature that Snagit has is the ability to pull text from a capture. We don't use this a lot but when it is needed it is a huge time saver.
  • The settings and tools within Snagit are intuitive and easy to find.

Vidyard

  • Data: being able to see who watched the video, for how long, where they live, and how these things change over time is incredibly useful.
  • Interactivity: being able to gate videos or add a call to action in one central place is great.
  • Easy hosting: once a video is uploaded to Vidyard you can post it in multiple channels but make changes in one central place, so it makes it very easy to keep track of assets.

Cons

Snagit

  • Very basic. Most of the capabilities of this tool arr very basic and not feature packed. So eventhough it gets the job done, it sometimes leave you wanting for more.
  • Scroll capture function would make a good addition to its screen capture capabilities.
Ira Mae Ramos | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vidyard

  • The Vidyard UI can be difficult to navigate and the concept of a player requires extensive effort to understand.
  • Vidyard allows clipping the beginning and end of videos but does not provide an undo option if a mistake is made. This requires re-recording the video if part of a sentence was mistakenly cut off.
  • Vidyard's video clipping tool is difficult to use and it's hard to tell how much you'll be cutting from the beginning or end of a video which results in repeated adjustments to prevent losing an important part of the video.

I think that the tool is excellent for what it is being used for. I particuarly like the ability to capture content from the screen whilst using the scroll wheel on my mouse. It is very annoying when your try to capture something with grab and you can't scroll which leads to multiple images

It has been an integral part of both our employees and customers experience. I would highly recommend VidYard to anyone looking for new ways to make their support interactions more personable and efficient. Not only that, but is a huge value add for existing customers of the HubSpot product as well.

It's button centric for easy access to every feature. Everything allows undo! It works like any other standard Windows application. Everyone can be a professional without having to select every feature yourself by using the built in styles with just one click of a button in most cases. Every button is clearly labeled too.

There's a few bits of set-up I'd recommend speaking to an expert partner for (like us!) like setting up your landing page, calls-to-action, understanding how best to embed the videos (best practice rather than technical), and some practical tips for getting your people over the fear of doing videos in the first place. There is a great short campaign that we use to help everyone become proficient and skilled at creating great videos, that take less time than typing an email.

It performs very well. I have never had any bugs while recording, and none of the videos have been impaired or corrupted. I don't believe it integrates with any other software but you could contact the company to learn more. I am not sure if it is only available on Chrome.

I've actually never had to contact support as the tool is easy to use. One aspect is that they upgrade and send email notifications of the upgrades. They don't charge extra for upgrades and their enhancements fall in line with the way we use the tool. We haven't had to submit any upgrade requests as the tool already does what we need it to do.

I first heard of Vidyard at a marketing conference (INBOUND 2019). I was impressed with the team working at the booth. They were friendly, helpful, and they were able to really show me how Vidyard could help our specific company. I took all that information to the owners when I got back from the conference and it was an easy sell. Since the very beginning, I felt like we were in good hands. We had great people working with us and helping us get everything set up. When there was a new account manager, she reached out (via video message of course) and made it clear that she was happy to help us with whatever we needed.

It's a simple next next finish install. The SnagIt Library in the user profile should probably be backed up to make sure they have access to their old screen captures. We frequently will go back to previous captures and add context bubbles etc. when software changes to show the "old" vs "new". Also, go to SnagIt's website and download the additional Stamp Sets for the user. These are terrific. I wish there was one download to get them all, but you have to download and install them one set at a time. It's worth it - especially for training how-to's.

It's pretty straightforward. The bulk of the work goes on outside of Vidyard - it's the time required to add different videos to your website - that was probably the only difficult part and had nothing to do with Vidyard.

Alternatives Considered

Snagit

Snagit is much more robust than either of those tools. Both of those were very basic screen capture tools—no frills, no advanced features. They allowed me to grab a screen and make minor changes to it. We used a separate tool (Loom) for video capture. With Snagit, it does everything we need in one tool. We love the scrolling capture feature since we are frequently working with large/long documents and May need to capture a long area of text that doesn’t all fit on one screen. It makes our lives so much easier!
Kathleen Murray | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vidyard

I've never evaluated another product like Vidyard. I just used screen recordings with RingCentral before, and I remember the file size being very large and having to add the video as an attachment. So this was a major improvement to be able to shoot videos and easily share with my clients.

Return on Investment

Snagit

  • Snagit isn't a very expensive product in general so it has been a huge ROI for us
  • It saves me countless amounts of time each day
  • I'm able to share instructions much easier and allows for more time spent on other tasks
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vidyard

  • Vidyard gives us visibility and control over our videos that free solutions don't offer.
  • We are able to trigger other marketing campaigns based on the results we see from Vidyard, which we weren't able to do before
  • Figuring out the exact value is not as easy as it should be because of the way you pull reports from Vidyard.
