YuVid is an excellent new video player from Steven Washer. Easy to use, power packed, and perhaps most importantly, geared for the future on online video viewing. Plus, it’s a video player from a video creator, producer, and marketer designed to be used for folks just like us! Thanks Steve!
Some players offer only YouTube embeds, some only html5, and some Flash. With Yuvid you can have it all. Manage your videos all in one place.
Browsers today use a wide variety of schemes to show video. Most players cannot keep up with the changes. The best ones use HTML5 with a Flash fallback which, until now, was state-of-the-art.
Yuvid goes beyond this older idea with Double Fallback technology. This not only makes your videos play anywhere on any device. With the press of one button, it makes sure your message stays up and can never be snuffed out!
The Yuvid default player is HTML5, since Flash will soon be a thing of the past. But, if a user’s browser does not support HTML5, we fall back on Flash. But not only Flash.
Get YouTube views when you need them, and with total safety in case YouTube yanks down your video. One click of your mouse and your video is back in business, along with all your embeds, anywhere in the webiverse!
When you own your own space, you always have access to your content. Amazon S3 is often the perfect solution for ultra-cheap hosting. And their fees go down every year!
A wide variety in unlimited colors. Change your skin with one click, without affecting your settings. Built from the ground up for total customization.
Put your redirect or buy now buttons anywhere in the video or even around the video. There are zero restrictions!
Many of your fonts can be changed, both inside or outside the video player, to match the branding for your website.
You can embed an opt-in form inside the player, so no matter where your video is embedded, you can add subscribers to your list.
The opt-in can be timed to the second to stop the video, then resume when your viewer takes an action.
The code you embed in your web site comes with schema.org markup. This is more powerful than a simple video site map.
Yuvid’s integration with Google Analytics helps you learn how your customers behave – how long they watch your videos before they leave, and what actionable items they click on!
Use this intelligence to learn what your audience likes so you can give them less of what they don’t like and more of what they DO!
If an unusual browser suddenly won’t play your own copy of the video, you can always fall back on the YouTube version. Though your version may be more apt to play first!
If YouTube suddenly decides to delete your video, then you can get it showing your own copy n the same player with one click on your control panel!
Many HTML5 players give you decent playback ability. But if you aren’t a coder, you can’t really use them. Yuvid gives you a super-simple user interface, so you can have your videos prepped in seconds!
What really impressed me with the Yuvid player is how simple and easy it is to add links, SEO, analytics tracking, and buttons to link to my offers. If you are looking for a safe and secure place to manage your videos, look no further. Check out Yuvid Player so YOU can control your own property and aren’t negatively impacted by the whims of the big gorillas terms and conditions.
I’ve meant to tell you how much I’m enjoying your Yuvid player. It’s so convenient to have all of the features one could desire to put into a video right there in one place. And even the tutorial video— just by clicking on the button…you pop up and show exactly how to do the procedures necessary to complete that feature of my video. Great job designing Yuvid.
It’s so easy to use, with video tutorials on every section if I get stuck. But it’s so intuitive I’ve already configured dozens of videos for my clients! Best of all, Google can’t take this away from me. I’m in control of the entire experience. I really want to congratulate you guys. This is one piece of software that just works! Read more…
