Wipster enables me to streamline the video review and approval process by making the note-taking process visual via its intuitive user interface. With over twenty years in producing video in my background, getting notes from stakeholders has always been the most frustrating part of the job. Wipster makes video review/approval a breeze!

For those who have to receive edit notes, Wipster makes your life a lot simpler via their integration with Adobe Creative Cloud. The integration with Premiere Pro allows you to sync the sequence to the notes and markers give me references, rather than having to hunt down an email with timecode. The integration with Creative Cloud was a game-changer and ultimately what won me over!

If you deal with any form of media that you need others to look at, make notes, or approve, Wipster is the go-to solution, hands down!
  • Strong integration with Adobe products.
  • Very capable media management tools.
  • Ability to put notes on PDFs, audio or video.
  • The mobile app needs a bit of work, but it is functional.
  • Turnover in their sales staff has left me waiting for a response at times. I loved the product so much I needed to add more storage and another team member to my account.
I actively talk about Wipster and show off how I'm able to get so much done with my clients because of this tool all of the time! If you own or work at a digital agency, it's a must! I'm using Wipster for short and long-form media, it just makes everything so much easier for me.

To my knowledge, my department is the only one using Wipster at our institution. We use Wipster to gather feedback from our faculty clients on the instructional media that we produce for them, primarily for online courses. Timeline-specific accuracy is essential in implementing efficient and effective edits and changes to the content we produce. Faculty do not have a great deal of time on their hands to engage in a lengthy review/approval process, so Wipster's easy to navigate UI/UX allows them to quickly give substantive, constructive feedback to our production team.
  • Easy to use UX/UI.
  • It provides the ability to compare versions/history.
  • A simple admin interface.
  • There is sometimes a lag when navigating a timeline/leaving comments, which makes me wonder if actions are being recorded correctly.
  • The admin interface seems to be slower than it should be.
  • There's no closed captioning feature as far as I know (some of our clients are deaf/hard of hearing).
When a project reaches the point where an editor is ready for feedback, he or she uploads it to a Wipster folder. In this initial rough stage, it is typically only shared with the internal team for review. We want as many wrinkles ironed out as possible before the faculty gives their feedback -- again, they typically don’t have a lot of time to engage in a process requiring multiple revisions and versions of content. Once all parties are satisfied with the final product, we finalize and export. In general, I will leave content on Wipster for a couple of months in case we ever need to refer back to previous comments/feedback.

We used Wipster as a tool to record client feedback on our corporate video production. Our video team specifically used it, and most feedback was directed with our project managers and the clients. Wipster allowed for easily communicating feedback in a way that made our production workflow faster and more simplified.
  • Wipster was one of the first applications to allow for frame-by-frame video feedback. This provided a unique opportunity to make feedback far more intelligible than before. Before Wipster, we needed to reference phone calls, notes, emails, and messages, as well as communicate verbally with our project managers. A lot of information can get lost this way, but Wipster places the feedback directly with the video, which makes it super easy to understand what the client desires for their video to look like.
  • Wipster allows for a client to select a location on a frame where their feedback is referencing. It's fairly archaic, but it works. Client feedback sits next to the playback window so it's somewhat easy to reference what the client wants.
  • Wipster also allows for integration with editing software like Premiere Pro, which speeds up the editing process as well.
  • Wipster pales in comparison to an application like Frame.io in terms of relaying and defining feedback. Wipster only allowed for highlighting a specific frame, but other software allows clients to draw on frames, leave multiple easy to access comments on a frame, and leave innovative feedback.
  • Wipster has occasional playback issues. This is fine in internal settings, but when a client has problems reviewing a video, this is a huge problem.
  • Wipster has proven themselves untrustworthy as a company. Wipster implemented an image review structure into pre-existing plans, which was entirely useless to us. This makes sense for clients revising photography, but ultimately the image review structure began to change the pricing of the system as well. Long-term, Wipster ended up increasing the cost of their application (including worthless features at our expense) and a tier-structure of uploads which didn't really make much sense. Wipster implemented these changes with hardly any notice to their users and probably without seeking feedback from customers on how the changes would impact them.
  • Wipster's editing software integration is shoddy at best. It would constantly freeze and crash on our systems, or take 5-10 minute to boot up. We had this issue with multiple computers.
Wipster is fine if you are interested in testing the waters of these handy frame-by-frame feedback applications, but there are far better alternatives. If you want to give it a quick go to test things out, it's not the worst idea, and perhaps they've implemented more changes to increase the usability and trust of the consumers.
