And the Winner is ... Vimeo


For the purpose of this study, in which we are searching for the best video hosting platform for our online courses, Vimeo meets more of our needs than Wistia. Wistia is a great solution for online courses, but if you are on a budget or if you are just starting out, it is too expensive because the basic plan starts at $99 a month and there are escalating prices when you have numerous videos to upload. While Vimeo starts at only $7 a month and has no bandwidth limitations.

Both video hosting solutions have the much needed domain-level privacy, which means you can rest assured your video courses can only be viewed from your designated website.
