My Private Media Channel is for personal use, I use it because it allows the viewers to watch exclusively video broadcasting with no distractions. I can set the streaming bandwidth to fit the uploading connection. I do not have to check end user configurations, that's great. Another a good feature is user management, so if something changes I can make changes accordingly.
  • I can check viewership analytics by user; timestamps are a little bit screwed but overall I use date stamps and content title.
  • Once understood, the Adobe Flash Media Live Encoder, is pretty straight forward to use it.
  • Best of all, it is private.
  • It used to be a con: Linux integration; but as I checked with tech support I learned I can use Open Broadcaster from Linux
  • I was wondering how secure Adobe Flash Media Live Encoder is, but I was clarified when a broadcast is active, just one can be active, and that's the reason I have to create a Live Event each time I Broadcast. And again, as channel is private, the security is improved.
  • To get time stamps right in viewership analytics, time stamps appear to be delayed by 6 hours (I am -6 hours from UTC)
  • Improve comments section to reflect actual dates, it says "about a year ago" when it is November 2015 (last month).
I consider for enterprise use, it is best suited for conferences and for training.
  • I have experienced better customer service for end users.
  • Distraction free end users (monetary result does not apply in this channel).
Optimum upload bandwidth, no distraction from other channels, video streaming available, user management, private channel. Each previous characteristic paved the way to select Private Media Channel.
I have overall good response to my questions
Yes
Yes it was properly solved, and that helped me to get Linux machine streaming.
It was because I wanted to have a Linux machine streaming video, but I only knew Adobe Flash Media Live Encoder, so they gave me the option Open Broadcaster

I use Niche Video Media to live broadcast events on the Internet. The business problems that are solved are the live broadcast works.
  • Niche Video Media offers great support. If there is ever a problem, that problem is addressed quickly.
  • The top management at Niche Video Media always offers to be standing by when an event to be live broadcasted is scheduled.
  • Niche Video Media will do more than most other companies will do. For example, this company custom designed a video player with my desired length and width and they took the full-screen button off of the player.
  • More analytical information on the viewers.
  • White label chat that is embedded along with the video player.
  • More options to customize the length and width of the player for videos on demand.
Niche Video Media is well suited for people just getting started with live broadcasting events because they will take the time to help someone.
  • The video quality that is produced by Niche Video Media is good and helps to project a good image of my company
Niche Video Media has far superior support compared to the large live streaming hosts that are available.

We use Private Media Channel to manage our video content and host it for worldwide consumption. Our users are around the world in many languages and the globalization features are key for us. We use the channel to curate the video content displayed on our web page, and to give our key customers a private and secure area to exchange information about properties.
  • Multiple language sub-titling and voiceover.
  • Easy embedding of the video in our external web page.
  • Global delivery in high and low bandwidth environments without buffering.
  • Secure environment for our sensitive customers to view and keep all sorts of information about a property.
  • Ability to share live property showings around the globe. I video from my iPad, the customer in Asia sees the house and hears my commentary as I walk around.
  • The Real Time Conferencing feature is a little difficult to use.
  • Screen Sharing only works in a limited browser set.
Many agents simply place videos on their website, and YouTube is fine for that. If that is all you need, then Private Media Channel is probably too much overhead for your needs. But we needed an integrated solution that provided better quality video than YouTube can, no YouTube branding, a private portal for customer communications, real time web conferencing, and permissions for the clients to upload their own content. I couldn't find anything else with these features.
  • Fantastic premium service differentiation for my customers. No other realtor matches the amount of communication I can provide my clients.
  • Better, more professional look keeps more visitors sticky on my site and helps me convert them.
  • I don't need to pay for live streaming and web conferencing products in addition to my video hosting. This one product serves all 3 needs.

Wistia and Vimeo simply provide hosting services, not a "channel" where my users can privately consume my content and interact with it as an extension of my website. In essense, I would have to extend my website to provide this functionality and simply place my videos hosted with them on the new pages I needed to build. This came with a full-fledged end user site I simply attached to my website.

Brightcove simply wanted WAY too much money for the same functionality/capability.

  • Online training
  • Self-taught
It was direct and personal, aimed at solving the immediate task at hand while instructing me how the channel as a whole works in the process.
It greatly depends on how technical you are and how familiar you are with software-as-a-service tools (say, WordPress for example). An understanding of video is relatively important. There are training videos and how-to tutorial topics, but they can be improved.
No
Premium (handholding/implementation/onboarding) support was offered, but was unnecessary. I figured out how to do it myself, as I do with many products.
Immediate response from a knowledgeable rep - not a tier 1 automaton reading a script. I can, and have, reached them at all hours by phone, by chat, or by email. Responses are under 24 hours and frequently less than 1. And stuff gets DONE! I see things I request in almost every monthly release.
Yes
Yep. Fixed same day in one case - because there was obvious impact. Most are fixed in one or two monthly releases.
I was trying to embed a video in a WordPress page. I could not figure out the HTML, so I called the support number. They immediately created a web conferencing session and guided me through it watching my screen.
Yes
Not noticeable. It is all automatic each month, since it is software-as-a-service. I receive a notice that it will happen 3 days ahead of time and what the downtime window will be if any. The day after, we come in and see the new features in place. We were never adversely affected.
  • Real time communications to have face-to-face video conference meetings with clients.
  • Embedding videos in emails.
