Hosting your company's videos : public or private platform ?
You wish to gather all your in-house videos on a video platform, in order to broadcast them with your associates ?
You have two options : a public platform like YouTube or a private platform like Videas.
Why should companies no longer host their in-house videos on public platforms ?
Many companies host and broadcast their in-house videos on public platforms. Unfortunately, these platforms are not ideal for them.
Here’s a list of its disadvantages :
1. A very large catalog of videos
On a public platform, anyone can host and broadcast video content. Let’s take the example of YouTube. You can find tutorials, beauty videos, television programs reruns, or even video clips.
Your in-house videos will be mixed with content video that isn’t in accordance with your company. Thus, your associates will be encouraged to watch other videos rather than the ones from your company.
2. Unsecured access to your videos
You have just created in-house videos and they are only for your associates.
It is important to know that on a public platform :
- Anyone can watch your content video.
- Your videos will never remain secured nor confidential, because some malicious users could download and save them in order to broadcast them on other platforms.
3. A limited customization
The disadvantage with public platforms is that you can’t modify the video player or your channel. For instance, you can’t add your brand’s logo. Moreover, you can’t change the theme nor the colors of your channel or video player.
This can be an obstacle to host or broadcast your in-house videos, because it is better that your associates watch your videos on a channel that uses the graphic charter of your company.
4. Advertisements while watching your video
We all know that ads are annoying while you are watching a video. After a while, we don’t want to watch it anymore.
It goes without saying for your associates. They will no longer be focused on the video and they will be annoyed by the appearance of advertisements on the video player.
