The Best Video Delivery Platforms with Rob Adams
Can we all agree that DVDs and Blu-ray Discs are dead? I know I’ll get lambasted for saying that because I know there are some video producers that still deliver their video on optical media. Many of them are in the event video industry filming recitals and stage performances for schools and drama clubs. I’m talking about the video industry as a whole. I can’t think of one wedding or documentary filmmaker that still uses optical media for delivering videos. Bandwidth has become fast and available these days, enough so that the most compressed video files can be delivered over standard hosting websites like Dropbox and Google Drive. Larger files can be sent via WeTransfer and private cloud services. For a more polished presentation and streamlined end-viewer experience however, there are a couple of services out there that are worth talking about when you want to leave a lasting impression on your client as well as offer a nice viewing experience for streaming videos on television displays and mobile devices.
Here we will talk about the two most popular video delivery/streaming services and the pros and cons of each. Vimeo is not one of them. While I think Vimeo is a viable option for content delivery, I want to focus on two of the newer, more progressive services in the game: MediaZilla (mediazilla.com) and WedFlow (wedflow.co). These are two video delivery platforms that really offer the most seamless experience and have worked hard to ensure new features and quality updates are made available on the regular.
