Oculu vs. Free Services vs. Other Premium Online Video Platforms

What makes Oculu unique?

We're the only online video platform created specifically for the needs of the business and marketing user.

We've been an online video production and delivery company since before you could say YouTube. Our client's biggest frustration back then? Just how do you place a video onto a site in an easy, inexpensive and professional manner? All the services available were either too complicated, too expensive or too entertainment oriented.

It was this disconnect that led us to build a feature rich platform that was easy to use, affordable, and that offered the professional video solutions client's needed.

Think your video hosting service provides all of your business and video marketing needs? We dare you to compare!

“Oculu has been hosting our videos for over a year now and we have never had a problem.  I love how easy it is to add and delete videos with the Oculu platform.  Innovate Media did a great job producing our Video Spokesperson too!”

“Oculu is so easy to use.  I had my video live on my site in less than 5 minutes.  Their reporting dashboard offers all of the reports we need to see how effective our video is.  We’ll be adding several more videos to our site via Oculu throughout the year.  I strongly recommend Oculu, great customer experience!”

Did you know?

On Vimeo’s premium platform, businesses are not allowed to host their commercials or any self-serving promotions! It’s all in the fine print. You can put whatever you want on our streaming video servers (except porn, please). We love commercials!

Promoting something other than your business right from your website? We didn’t think so. But if you use YouTube’s video player, it will happen. Once your video has finished playing, YouTube automatically allows viewers to see videos that have similar keywords attached to them. So whether it’s your competitor, a disgruntled consumer, or a random blogger it will all be available to distract your audience.  Take a look at this excerpt from their Terms document:

“The Service may contain links to third party websites that are not owned or controlled by YouTube. YouTube has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third party websites. In addition, YouTube will not and cannot censor or edit the content of any third-party site. By using the Service, you expressly relieve YouTube from any and all liability arising from your use of any third-party website.   Accordingly, we encourage you to be aware when you leave the Service and to read the terms and conditions and privacy policy of each other website that you visit.”

As video professionals who wanted seamless video delivery and stellar management capabilities for our work, we built Oculu from the ground up. Our focus is only to provide a rock solid web video hosting service.

Think you’ll get the SEO advantages of a linked video with YouTube? Think again. If YouTube hosts your video and anyone links to it, YouTube gets the SEO benefits, not you.

No ads, ever! With Oculu video hosting, your videos are gorgeously displayed ad free and customized to match your site.
