I cant remember how I first heard about Easy Video Player 2.0, but I can tell you one thing for certain, and thats that there is nothing quite like being able to stream high quality video using a custom player that looks great and has some pretty cool features.
That said, is Easy Video Player 2.0 really the kind of video player that is suited for everybody? Heres the thing. If you dont want to use your typical YouTube or Vimeo embeds on your website, the only way to host unbranded video on your website is going to be to host it yourself, and depending on the number of people that you will be serving video to, this can end up being quite pricey.
Next, you will need to arrange some kind of content delivery network (Or CDN for short). There are plenty of good high quality CDN services available that will allow you to stream video content. Personally, I use Amazon S3 Cloud Front, and that has always been an extremely cost effective platform for me. Cost wise I have never paid over 5 10$ to host my video content on S3 Cloud Front.
So, with that out of the way, lets get to the question that I really hope to answer for you today
Is Easy Video Player 2.0 Right For Me?
There are a good number of players out there that will allow you to stream your own videos, that said, in a recent product launch, I had the privilege of being able to test a handful of these players. I tried free open source players, and others that come at a monthly cost.
At the end of the day, Easy Video Payer 2.0 just came out on top in every way (Click here to see the player in action). It looks nicer, the code is cleaner resulting in the most stable playback that I have ever seen, and on top of that, the features that are included with the player are downright phenomenal.
Just to name a few, you can redirect viewers to a custom URL once their video has finished, and even embed an opt in form at the end of the video. You can also add security to your embed codes making it even harder for people to copy your videos, plus lets not forget that you can also lock your video content to a specific domain, which is a feature that I can not live without.
Split testing junkies can also split test two different videos to see which one gets the desired result. Yes, the software also has its own built in statistics and sales tracking.
That said… as much as there are a ton of features, I do need to say at this point that what you are paying for in Easy Video Player 2.0 are the features. Sure, it looks great, but this really is an advanced player that doesnt leave much room for competition.
In fact, I have seen a handful of pay by the month services that provide the same feature set plus hosting that charges in excess of a few hundred dollars a month. Its clear if you want those features but not the monthly cost, then Easy Video Player 2.0 is a very worthwhile investment.
But what about the cheaper services that provide the player only? Would I suggest that you buy this over a monthly membership video player? To be quite honest, I would. I used to be a member of EZS3, and quite frankly, I found Easy Video Player 2.0 to be much more feature filled, much more reliable, easier to run, and most importantly, it is scalable.
You also have the option to host it yourself, which is what actually sold me on the software. Means that I am not relying on someone else to keep a service live for me.
