Overall Satisfaction with Wistia

It is being used across the marketing department to embed video on our sites and blogs. We also use it for review and approval of our internally produced commercials.
  • Wistia is reliable.
  • Wistia gives us a solid look at viewer engagement, and facilitates embedding CTAs.
  • Wistia offered reliable uploading for short video clips
  • Wistia offers a flexible API
  • Wistia could really use better tools for analyzing analytics like YouTube has.
  • Wistia struggles with large file uploads, it sends you to an HTML uploader with no loading bar, and sometimes the FTP upload fails for an hour long video.
  • The .csv files do not contain enough information about analytics, we'd like to compare a video's performance this year vs last year, but that is difficult.
  • Overall Wistia has enabled us to deploy more video faster. It has made internal reviews easier, and the ability to swap the source file is invaluable.
Wistia has a more responsive UI, the ability to swap source and high reliability.
We haven't come across a service that offers a better package than Wistia.
It is less appropriate where image quality is important. I really wish they would implement the ability to see the highest quality image. We sell software, and our software has a lot of very fine text that it displays on iPads, it would be nice if Wistia allowed the user to select the highest quality playback. Vimeo is better in that respect.
