StreamShark Live Streaming Platform

For internal communications such as Town Halls, StreamShark is a perfect solution. StreamShark provides the necessary security needed for private companies as well as a tried and true viewing experience for the end user.

Wistia

Wistia is a fantastic alternative to Vimeo for hosted video and website embedding. It has a ton of features, is customizable and has high performance. It is great for small, medium and large firms and has a lot of features you can grow into if you are a smaller firm. If you are looking for a cheap video platform, however, it would not be Wistia

Pros

StreamShark Live Streaming Platform

  • StreamShark has an excellent live support model, which gives us real-time support on live stream productions. Another feature we like is the Okta SSO integration. This makes it simple to manage access to the videos and streams.
  • Our account manager, James Broberg, is an absolute pleasure to work with. He clearly has our goals in mind when he suggests the new features in our bi-weekly meeting.
  • Additionally, the StreamShark support team, namely, Yudong, Robert, and Aakanksha drive our requests to completion in a timely manner.
  • The look and feel of the GUI is user-friendly.

Wistia

  • Wistia has particularly good support which proves critical. While we have redundant systems in place, we have yet found the need to leverage our redundant delivery contingency.
  • Wistia manages to iterate thoughtfully without complicating the UI/UX nor executional work streams.
  • Wistia is accessible and authentic in the way they work with their user base. Whether it be useful content that unearths best practices and use case scenarios, or vetting a new use case to validate, they have done a fine job in building a user community.
  • The reliability of the platform is quite solid. Impressive uptime as well as response time.

Cons

StreamShark Live Streaming Platform

  • Multiple homepages for channels e.g. one for public and one for internal.
Lawrence Barrett | TrustRadius Reviewer

Wistia

  • Obtaining embed codes for a significantly large number of videos can be very time consuming as there is no way to automatically pull a report.
  • Within a project, there is no way to set the list to show a specific number of videos and you may only have a certain number of videos shown unless you click to expand the list and continue to do so.
  • Once the list is expanded and you click in to a video, when clicking back, the list reloads and you must expand the entire list again which can become very time consuming.

There are other options out there that would work for my company. However the platform is superior to the others that we have used. I will most likely renew when the time comes. The idea that the product is still evolving and adding new options is intriguing to stay with Wistia.

Great, simple, usable product. Would have given it higher marks, but sometimes the folders and permissions aren't the most intuitive. Interface for uploading, tagging, describing videos is simple. Sharing is also relatively intuitive. Overall, a clean and simple interface and most of our marketing team had no issues using it. I think it was easier than using Vimeo.

I have never had any technical issues with Wistia. The service is fast and reliable. video play back begins as soon as a few seconds of video have buffered. The stats are accurate and available within a few hours of current use. I have integrated it with Marketo and found that the integration is clean and is easily incorporated into the campaign logic flow. (ex. If the user played more than 50% of the video, do Action-A, otherwise do Action-B.

We have only had to reach out to Wistia support a handful of times in the 4 years we have been using Wistia. They have always been quick to respond and help us solve the problem. The system is self-service so there should be very little to no need to reach out to support on a regular basis.

We were in the process of changing our website so that took some time to get Wistia implemented in to our website.

Alternatives Considered

StreamShark Live Streaming Platform

We used IBM Cloud Video (previously called Ustream) for years. StreamShark is a better product in every sense. It is a more cost effective product. They have a support team who really cares about their clients success. And their product is ultimately more reliable than IBMs.
Stewart Gilmour | TrustRadius Reviewer

Wistia

I didn't actually select Wistia from a list of alternatives - I first became aware of Wistia through their library of support materials for video making, then realized that they had a pretty nice hosting capability. I started by trying it out with a couple videos that I linked to, then grew from there. Been very pleased all the way.

Return on Investment

StreamShark Live Streaming Platform

  • This service has positively impacted the organization by allowing larger audiences to receive information and act on said information in a more timely manner. This equates to more productivity around the organization, as initiatives and objectives can be efficiently shared with remote attendees in all of our different office locations.

  • There is not a day that goes by that we don't generate leads and subscribers through a Wistia form on a video - often from deep in the archives.
  • Wistia lead generation has really allowed us to maximize and monetize our video collection. This morning we got a new customer who began as a lead from a video that, quite frankly, I had forgotten about.
