Overall Satisfaction with Brightcove

Brightcove was used across two departments (Marketing & Video creation). It solved the issue of having a common space for all professional videos to live and avoided possible security breaches from other video hosting sites such as YouTube or Vimeo. Because you could set custom permissions settings on Brightcove, we were able to ensure that the content was secure.
  • Permissions configuration
  • Tagging & organizing
  • Editing
  • Hard to navigate user interface
  • No built-in naming conventions
  • More usability on videos = better content = more leads
  • Youtube and Vimeo
Brightcove is a more secure option than Youtube and has better file management than Vimeo.
Brightcove is well suited for large marketing departments with a heavy emphasis on video content, creation, storage, and editing. It's not great for content distribution and if you're looking for a centralized location for all creative assets (images, copy, .PDFs) Brightcove won't cut it. You'll need a larger content management solution for that.
