The best video marketing platform

Wistia is simple to use, highly customizable, and lightning fast. The analytics capabilities within the tool are really well built. I have used a couple of competitors in the past that weren’t nearly as streamlined and easy to use as Wistia!

Frequently asked questions

Get all the As to your FAQs.

  • What is the best video hosting platform for me? Wistia or YouTube?

    That depends on what you’re looking for. Wistia is great for converting viewers to customers and controlling how your videos look and feel, while YouTube helps you maximize your videos’ reach. We recommend using both as part of your video marketing strategy. In fact, you can import YouTube videos into Wistia and publish videos to YouTube right from Wistia.

  • Where can I host videos for free?

    You can host up to 10 videos for free right here on Wistia. We’ll provide a customizable player, integrations with your social media accounts for quick posting, and video analytics to help you measure performance.

  • What is video hosting?

    Video hosting is when you upload video files to a platform so that people can watch them online. With Wistia, you can do just that. When you upload videos to Wistia, you can customize the video player to match your brand, easily embed the videos on your website, and use the privacy settings to control who’s able to watch. You can even optimize your videos’ performance with access to analytics, video A/B testing, and integrations with your marketing automation platform.

  • What’s the difference between paid and free video hosting with Wistia?

    Get a quick overview of our free and paid plans:

    • Wistia’s Free Plan lets you host up to 10 videos, customize the video player to match your brand, integrate with your social media accounts for quick posting, and measure the impact of your videos with basic video analytics.
    • Wistia’s Plus Plan ($19/mo) helps you capture leads with in-video forms, integrate your video library with your email marketing platform, and do basic video editing to get more out of your videos.
    • Wistia’s Pro Plan ($79/mo) offers video heatmaps, the ability to A/B test with video, and customizable in-video calls to action (CTAs) that drive your audience where you want them to go.

    Just create an account with us! Then upload your video with a quick drag and drop. Another option is to import videos from other tools like Zoom or YouTube. Haven’t made a video yet? No prob. With Wistia, you can create videos with our handy-dandy video recorder.

  • Is it better to host my own videos or use a video hosting site?

    It’s a whole lot easier to use a video hosting site like Wistia. Hosting your own videos requires a ton of server bandwidth. You’ll also have to deal with file size limits, storage space, slow load times, not-so-great video quality, possible piracy, manual coding, and video conversion for mobile—phew! What a mouthful. But you’re in luck because Wistia handles all of that for you.

  • What is an online video platform?

    We think of it as a website that lets you upload, host, and watch videos. With Wistia, you can do that and more. We’ll help you record and edit your own videos, host a webinar, organize your video library, build branded video galleries for all your content, optimize your videos for search, customize your video player, and measure the impact of your videos with top-notch analytics.
