In our previous online post, we discussed the live video streaming options available to you. Here, we will explain the other way to engage virtually with your event attendees: creating pre-recorded videos for your presentations. While a live video stream offers more opportunity for you and your attendees to communicate live, hosting a pre-recorded video session will allow you to edit your presentation professionally, add graphics, combine multiple videos, and much more!
Our guide on how to get started with recording a presentation with OBS will help you create a video of your session. But once you have created your videos, what online service should you use to host them? Here are a few recommendations from us here at Conference Tracker:
YouTube is widely known as the first choice for video hosting and sharing. Focusing on entertainment, it hosts videos of any kind and type. Its popularity is so immense it is ranked the second most visited website in the world. Only its owner, Google.com, is beating it out for the top spot.
Vimeo is a trendy alternative to YouTube. With a more professional audience gearing towards the creative type, Vimeo has been able to stand its own in the video hosting market for over 15 years.
Advertising a marketing-focused video hosting approach, Wistia is a very popular service catering to businesses and brand outreach. Offering free and paid plans, they will help you find, engage, and grow your business's audience.
Regardless of which of these excellent services you use to host your pre-recorded video sessions, Conference Tracker is ready to integrate with your selected service. The system will enable your attendees to easily find and play the virtual sessions of interest. It will also provide you with usage reports and assist with other tasks needed to manage your virtual conference.
We hope this info will help you select a video hosting service and make your next virtual conference a big success.
