New Embedded Video Player From Wistia

I’ve written about Wistia before, an enterprise video hosting and analytics vendor. This week they have made big improvements to their embedded video player, including more customization of controls, a cleaner look, and some other small touches. What was once a solid player is now a great player. If you are looking around for a place to host your videos, this should be on your short list. They provide terrific customer service and analytics features too.

As you can see from the screen capture, you have all your controls and buttons on a single page, enabling you to assemble the code for your player from various options. You can loop the video or have it pause on the last frame (the latter is my preference, and why I design a specific endcap slide for that position). You can change the color of the player with a simple mouse click, or type in the color value directly in the color chart on the bottom right. You can simply resize the video window to any dimensions by entering them directly in the upper right boxes. You have your choice of two sizes of play buttons.

According to the company, the video stream automatically adjusts depending on bandwidth available to the browsing client, which is another nice touch.

Wistia offers a solid dose of analytics if you use their player, as we have written about earlier this summer here. Plans begin at $23 a month for hosting up to three videos, and jump to $79 a month for unlimited videos.
