"Excellent Product and Great Value for Money!"

Comments: Stability and mobility. I'm a life customer with MediaShout and would not hesitate to recommend it to other people.

Pros: You can do most things under the one computer. No multiple machines or feeds required. This is very useful for a mobile church setup. It also comes with multiple features that you often have to pay extra for with other products such as loads of Bible versions, Songs and Hymnals. MediaShout also has first grade tech support that quickly respond to issues encountered. MediaShout has been faithfully serving our church and multiple ministries for over 15 years. Our church was one of the first users of this product in Australia.

Cons: Text editing is probably the weakest point, which we sometimes have to rely on PPT instead for better formatting, but MediaShout is overall a very strong and all rounded product.

"Pretty good church presentation software"

Comments: Mediashout let us create a more engaging service for our guests and congregation. We were able to not only have lyrics on the screen, but give them a wide variety of backgrounds and animations. Additionally we could automate some slides like our announcements to run on a timer until we were ready to proceed. And the ease of adding multiple media sources like audio and video gave us new avenues to share more content with our live audience.

Pros: Mediashout provided us with advanced presentation options for our church, giving us lyrics, slides, transitions, media playing capability, and verse sharing on the screens throughout our sanctuary. Our staff and volunteers were able to setup Sunday morning services and everything that needed to be on the screens. We did this in advance, saved the files, and went live on Sundays. Mediashout let us expand our capabilities outside of Powerpoint and incorporate more media into our services, which helped us keep our congregation engaged.

Cons: Media shout did a lot of advanced features compared to powerpoint but wasn't as advanced as pro presenter. We had issues editing slides on the fly and when things went sideways in the service, it was difficult to see all the slides at a glance to jump ahead or behind within the same window like Propresenter. And the software used a lot of system resources, so we had to make extra sure nothing was running in the background.

Thanks for taking the time to review! We're so glad to have been able to serve your church. From the content of the review, it looks like you may have been using a slightly out of date version. We'd love to invite you to check out features like Presenter View in MediaShout 7 to have a better experience seeing slides at a glance or jumping around as needed. The editing process has also been streamlined so it's a bit quicker to put things together even on the fly- AND there's about to be a new update to MediaShout 7 with even more focus on on-the-fly firing. Stay posted, and please let our support team know if we can help in any way on mediashout.com/support.

"Media Shout is a Worship NECCESITY"

Comments: Overall, Media Shout is a simple program that makes preparing for services much easier. There were many times where we didn't have lyrics to a song, and I was able to type it up quickly before service even started! Sometimes simple interface can make everything run smoother.

Pros: Being a musician, I sometimes travel to many churches with many different programs. MediaShout is one of those programs that stands out greatly. With the easy interface, it makes your lyrics look amazing! I loved the background choices they give you. Also great for making points on sermons. Much better than using Powerpoint, which many churches use because of it being the only option they have on their computers.

Cons: The cost is a bit pricey. It does come with quite a bit of things, but the more you want access to, the more you have to pay. I just wish it was a bit cheaper.

"MS7 needs lots of work!"

Comments: I have been a loyal MediaShout user since they began. However, Versions 5, 6, and now 7 are so riddled with problems that I have decided I will not invest any more money in this software. Tired of them repackaging the same program with the same problems.

Pros: So far, I can't really say that there are a lot of pros to this release.

Cons: MediaShout has always had lots of potential, but issues are many. MS7 was rebuilt from the ground up and is marketed as being more stable than other versions. This is simply not true. I upgraded over a month ago and it crashes or locks up weekly. It is also marketed as "powerful presentations made easy." There is nothing easy about this program. It is powerful, if you are willing to go through multiple steps to get your presentations the way you want them. MS7 is missing many of the features that were found in previous releases. In reworking the software, they have made many changes that practical usage very difficult and time consuming.

We're so sorry for your trouble. I understand where you're coming from. In streamlining & rebuilding MediaShout in Version 7, a lot was simplified, and we're still releasing some of the more advanced features over the next several months. But the basics are where the majority of users do think things are easier and quicker. We broke out of the box of limitations on a lot of things. Tech support has had less "how do I" questions than ever because things seem to make more sense. With that said, there are things about the heart of MediaShout that we want to stay in the workflow..we're always open to feedback on those. As for stability, we've had a few hurdles, but it's been an impressively smooth new release--much more stable than previous versions right off the bat, and issues we've had have been with very small groups and specific systems. V7 has nothing in it that was repackaged from the past. Tech support is available and developers will work ASAP on any reported issue.

"Glitchy"

Pros: The software is relatively easy to navigate and has some great features. The newest interface with version 7 is nice.

Cons: Incredibly glitchy with frequent pauses or crashes and all video out is choppy.

Hey there, thanks for your feedback! We're sorry to hear of that experience. Largely, V7 has been very smooth for most users! However, we just released an update TODAY to 7.3, which has many major additions and under the hood tweaks. So I'd start by grabbing that update and seeing how it runs. If you still experience performance issues after that, reach out to our support team and we'll be glad to get you running on all cylinders!
