Hosting video through SmartVideo has improved my website experience

5.0 4 years ago

Comments: SmartVideo was one of the best purchases I made this year for improving my online presence.

Pros:

I like that I was able to set up SmartVideo to access my videos on YouTube and seamlessly convert the hosting on my website. Now I have unbranded video viewing on my website that doesn't distract with YouTube elements.

Cons:

I haven't found any problems with SmartVideo, it just works smoothly in the background and I don't have to think about it.

A must have if you want to host videos on your page!

4.0 2 years ago

Comments: I truly love this product. Having the ability to host video without the outrageous expense is absolutely amazing.

Pros:

Beside the absence of bandwidth charges, The way it displays your videos and removes any location identifiers and or advertisements, it also lets you protect your videos from being copied.

Cons:

I would like it if there were additional customization features to the player.

Very pleased with this technology! Swarmify totally changes the way I use YouTube videos on my site.

5.0 6 years ago

Comments: A better working website - with nice effective videos served once by YouTube and then more efficiently by Swarmify on subsequent passes.

Pros:

Very easy to add to my Divi Wordpress website - just add a small chunk of code to the Headers and nothing else is needed. In return, I get all the benefits of using the YouTube server with none of the downside of ads or additional content at the end of clips. It's really genius and one subscription covers all my sites.

Cons:

Couldn't find any cons - it's a treat to have something work so well. I haven't seen anything else like this.
