Best Video Hosting Software

Video hosting platforms allow users to upload and store video files which can then be viewed by others. Video hosting sites typically offer viewer restriction options, so users can determine who does and does not have access to certain videos, as well as embedding features to integrate videos into websites, instructional videos, or presentations. Video hosting software may also enable tags and provide a search function to help visitors find specific videos. These products are often used by content, marketing, and culture teams within an organization to store video content and share it with coworkers or clients.

To qualify for inclusion in the Video Hosting category, a product must:

  • Provide storage and viewing capabilities for video files
  • Allow visitors, whether public or restricted, to access and view hosted videos
