This article contains the videos that I encoded for an article I wrote for OnlineVideo.net. Specifically, I encoded video on five UGC sites, YouTube, Vimeo, Viddler, DailyMotion and Metacafe, and VideoPress, which is the fee-based video publishing option available to WordPress users. After uploading the videos, I embedded them using each web site’s players in this article. Here they are:

VideoPress

I thought it was important to mention some other online video platforms not free, certainly, but are more secured and offer white label players to match their customers' websites.

Below, are listed a few providers that I had the pleasure to work with. They are reliable and the most affordable in the market (as the article is about inexpensive OVP):

Brightcove.com => Company oriented toward online video technology and (I think) leader on the market. They offer a service where you can built your own apps and choose your own settings thanks to their dynamic updates service, app available on Android, Iphone and tablets. Brightcove only offers monthly plans and it starts at $99/mo.


DaCast.com => Best pricing model and the less expensive of all! They offer a pay-as-you-go or only $29 monthly plan (includes 140GB) with the possibility to monetize the video by adding paywalls such as subscription or pay per view. They have a great customer support for people who need help setting up their stream. White label company, you can customize your player to match your website.

BitsOnTheRun.com => If you like apps and like to manage things through your mobile, they developed an Android and Iphone app to manage your video content, which is pretty nice when you have multiple files. They only offer a pay-as-you-go pricing model and like DaCast, you can custom the player to match your website.

Thanks Jan for your article :)
