Overall Satisfaction with Ooyala

Oovvuu distributes video to media companies including News Corp. News Corp uses Ooyala as its online video player (OVP). We manage some of the Ooyala users at News Corp.
  • It's intuitive and easy to use.
  • Ooyala Now is the only product I have seen to date that shows me real-time usage.
  • I like the people.
  • There is a general view that their new ownership has taken the edge of their innovation.
  • Product development is too slow.
  • Their analytics still fail to address the issue of profitability.
  • Ooyala enabled us to get video to our customers in a way we were incapable of before.
  • Ooyala enabled us to distribute video and advertising to our customers and our customer's customers on all devices.
  • Ooyala enabled us to run a video on demand service with thousands of titles with a single person.
We have used all the rival products. Ooyala has been our favourite for years, but feel like they have stalled in new product development.
Ooyala does the job for a newcomer entering the space. It currently does not represent a strong enough reason for someone with prior experience of an online video player to switch from a rival product, like say Brightcove.
