Vidyard, A New Entrant to Video Hosting

While YouTube dominates the online video space, a new entrant is trying to compete on price and features and may have an opportunity. Vidyard.com announced it is offering a wide array of features, including a choice of embedded players, social sharing and ad-free playback. There are several pricing plans announced on its site, including a free plan for a single video and some basic analytics and a $50 per month plan for unlimited videos.

We’ve already covered Wistia.com here, which offers somewhat similar services, including the ability to track originating IP addresses, and how much of any given video a viewer has actually seen. Wistia’s monthly plans start at $79 per month. And there are certainly plenty of other choices for video hosting sites, including Vimeo which has both basic and plus accounts. For $60 per year for the latter, you get analytics and the ability to upload unlimited videos (the free account provides for a single weekly HD upload).
