StreamYard

StreamYard is a great tool to create good-looking and engaging live sessions on social media. It allows adding visuals and videos, showing comments, as well as communicating with your audience and speakers in one place. StreamYard is also a great tool to film interviews or info sessions for those who are not familiar with video editing as it allows you to add all the necessary visuals with one click. StreamYard is great for communication with an extended audience.

Although there is room for improvement, it is a fantastic service and I would suggest this to many clients. In fact, I already have and overall they're happy with it. It does what is needed, has impressive features in the free version as well as the Plus version, and they seem to truly listen to what their clients want for features. They're head and shoulders above the competition with delivering a service that works (unlike other mentioned) along with having a slick end product. I'm so happy that I moved over to Vimeo

  • We use the hardware based Broadcaster which makes for very easy set up. It is so easy we can loan the equipment to smaller events that do not require our on site technical assistance.
  • Ease of integration and embedding in our Facebook page and website give our followers many options to join the stream.
  • Real time statistics on viewership and chat provide up to the minute understanding of our viewers needs and issues should they arise.

  • I'd like the ability to adjust the sizing of the progress bar for the videos. I recorded my videos with a profile photo that could only display in the lower left corner but when I attempted to add Vimeo's progress bar (showing how much time is left in the video) it covered the profile photo. If I'd kept that progress bar, the result would have looked unprofessional.
  • I'd like the "optimization" time after the video is uploaded to be faster. However, I realize this may depend on the speed of my internet connection.
  • I'd like more features in the Plus version of the service such as custom branding and lead generation options. This was included in another competitor that I tried before moving to Vimeo.

      StreamYard

      The StreamYard interface is more functional and easy to understand for participants, speakers, and team members. StreamYard also allows managing live streams in the app without the need to go to social media for checking comments, replying to them, etc. Simultaneously, StreamYard has many more options compared to other similar tools. For example, it allows sharing slides from different PowerPoints and screens, adding videos, visuals, and live comments with one click. Due to these options, we save time on managing live sessions and our broadcasts look much more professional and engaging.

      We chose Vimeo Live over StreamGuys as the yearly subscription model is much more flexible for our budget situation. The ease of use of the Broadcaster in Vimeo Live also reduced the amount of technical assistance required during events. The flexibility of embedding Vimeo Live streams into web and other social media with our own branding make it a better choice that Facebook and GoToMeeting.

      Return on Investment

      StreamYard

      • Since we started the LIVE podcast on StreamYard we have added over $200k in top-line revenue. Keep in mind there are processes around this and StreamYard is just a piece of the puzzle. An important piece that allows us to be consistent.
      • It has helped us be consistent for over 200 episodes of the podcast.

      • Positive ROI - the pricing is better than other comparable services with a better end result. So, the return on investment is significant since it is an inexpensive way to deliver what I need to my program users.
      • Positive - their 30 day trial period is so helpful to be able to determine if this is truly a good investment for you/your business. I was able to do all that I needed to within the first 30 days for live video, then continue with keeping the embed links with the continuing monthly subscription.
      • Positive - good analytics within the account (not Google Analytics with my level of subscription) so I can see how many users are viewing my videos, what devices they're on, and where they are in the world. This is all important for my business.
