"Great Web Based Video Creator!"

What do you like best?

Hippo has been cost efficient and convenient. The video quality is good for my needs which is primarily working within the higher education realm. The ease of navigation and the wonderful support that is given to novices like me has made it easier to be creative in how I present content.

What do you dislike?

Some of the add-ons do have a cost...though not prohibitive. I wish that was a bit clearer at the outset.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Very reasonable in price with good quality video. Great support as well.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using this to create and contribute to the creation of an effective online community. Since my class is totally online, I am using Hippo to create presence with my students and vice versa.

It really is effortless, user-friendly, marketing and advertising influenced as well as an adaptable application for modifying and improving, creating, distributing and even more. They have regular revisions and improvement along with the back-up and support is top class.

What do you dislike?

Although Hippo Video makes my practical experience smooth, it could be a lot more beneficial when they give a little more flexibility to modify schedule activities within my type. That will let me gain details from my visitors and have an understanding of the requirements.

If you wish to manage each step of the video journey in one location, you should use Hippo Video. It truly is user-friendly and it has a lively web-based online video application tool.

"Build and promote your video clips with just a couple mouse clicks and feel the Joy"

What do you like best?

Hippo Video makes it possible for me to record video and audio anytime using the mouse click, and mail out guests recording Hyperlinks to permit non-users to make video clips. It's actually easy, simple to use, marketing driven along with a flexible program for editing and enhancing, making, spreading, hosting videos and much more. They've frequent updates and advancement as well as the customer care is first class

What do you dislike?

Certain parts in the interface usually are not that apparent when you're getting started. There's always space for progress, and that I do, in my view, unlogical positioning of specific features. It could be good to get a number of customization alternatives to enhance video appearance.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It really is a user-friendly and has vibrant net based online video program and tool. The service is truly very helpful and will go further. Hippo Video is much more than only a display screen recording program. If you are searching to have the most from video clips, then you should check this software.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

If you do not know Hippo, then you should search at their site. I wouldn't refer to it as company issues what this application is resolving, but it really designed my work-flow exceptionally a lot more organized and simple. In my opinion, everybody will acknowledge that the utilization of Video is essential in the current communication

"A seamless video platform for sales and customer success."

What do you like best?

So far Hippo Video is the best platform that I’ve come across for sales teams and individual reps looking to record quick video emails/ email campaigns.

What do you dislike?

I used to have a problem in sending emails with a custom domain email account other than Gmail. Not anymore. Recently they’ve introduced a feature to send emails from any domain email account.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you want to humanize your communication and improve your customer satisfaction, then Hippo Video is the best option with great features and integrations that help us sales guys.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using Hippo Video for sales, I’m able to convert leads faster. And creating video has become the least of my problem as creating, sending, and tracking video emails are accessible within Hippo Video.

Hippo Video’s analytics helps me customize my follow up emails based on my lead interests. It provides reports on precisely who's opening my emails, clicking links, and watching my videos.

"Experience the Joy of Hippo Video"

What do you like best?

The first thing that comes to mind when someone mentions Hippo Video is excellent customer focus. It must be said. I had some, for me, challenging questions for a project I was managing. Boom. Sir, would it be convenient for you if we would set up a call and go over your specific use case? Well, yes. That gave me a good feeling about the product, purely due to the proactive attitude. I had still to setup Hippo Video, but I felt very confident it would work.

What do you dislike?

Some parts of the user interface are not that clear at first glance. There is always room for improvement, and I did go over the, in my opinion, unlogical placement of individual elements. The team made notes of my feedback to discuss internally.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There is a learning curve with Hippo Video; you need to plan your implementation and allocate time and other resources. This time is well worth it. Especially with the help from the well-organized support team, you will have a great experience using Hippo Video. But do not expect to be up and running in a day. The time needed to go live will differ per use case. But still, keep it in mind. Invest the time, and you will get the result you require.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

If you don't know Hippo, then you really should look at their website. I would not call it business problems what Hippo Video is solving, but it made my workflow immensely more structured and straightforward. I believe everyone will agree that the use of Video is a must in today's communication. Hippo Video is there to help you with sales, marketing, and support related tasks. There are different plans for these named categories, or you can choose to get a custom made Enterprise tier, which will hold whatever your business requires.

"Personalise your onboarding with video"

What do you like best?

Like the title says, I really like the fact that you can use the Gmail addon (even in mobile) to quickly record a personalised welcome video and send to new customers and clients. Not only that, but you can fully brand your video and add call to actions like a question or direct link. The analytics is also a great feature to keep track of who watched what video and for how long.

What do you dislike?

There's no official android app right now, although I did find a work around using the Gmail app and the hippo video addon. The UI could be a little more modern but that's just my opinion coming from a design perspective. It's a solid product and each week I can see improvements.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Absolutely give it a try for recording and sending personalised video emails either to individuals or everyone on your list. Video is the way forward and personalisation will help set you aside from your competitors. I've asked Hippo Video support questions and given suggestions, they are very friendly and accommodating.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I havent used the mass email list video outreach just yet, although I think this is an amazing feature... But I have used the personal email to welcome me users. Doing this manually via YouTube for example would take 10x times longer and still not have the features hippo video have.

"Excellent Online Video Performance Tracking Software"

What do you like best?

What hippo video can do best is about tracking your video ads performance, it can perform some basic video editing online without the need of additional software install, which is pretty cool for quick status update video a like.

Can easily add call to action form or lead magnet form on top of your video.

Can directly share my video work on facebook and keep track of its performance from within hippo.

What do you dislike?

It was not meant to be a video editor/creator, if you need robus video effect, you will need to use other tools to create your fx offline and upload to hippo.

Cannot customize the lead generation form much, example, I just want 1 field to ask for viewer email address in my opt-in form, hippo doesn't allow me, I will need to go with 3 fields: firstname, lastname and email.

My pro subscription only allow 200GB/month bandwidth, which is pretty low, big -1 here.

Qquite small number of interaction available, quite surprise hippo video has no integration with Zapier. regarding auto-responder, it can only integrate with MailChimp, thus i cannot integrate hippo with my email auto-responder, another minus here.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easily upload video, perform basic enhancement, directly share to multiple social network and keep track of its stat in central place.

"Hosting + Screen Recorder + Video Testimonials + More"

What do you like best?

What i liked about Hippo Video is that it is like a swiss army knife of Hippo size Video proportions! You get secured video hosting, video screen recording, video testimonials from customers, video slide shows. You get all of that for just a single payment made for the services.

What do you dislike?

The thing I disliked is the limitation on the no. of screen recordings I can use. I remember having to record again and again and used up all my screen recordings on the admin account. It was a bummer. Also the host landing page is really plain. Could use more designs. There should be unlimited screen cordings because there is already a bandwidth limit.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For those who are into ALL in ONE software solutions, check out Hippo Video. They are the swiss army knife in the video marketing solutions industry. They are just starting out but there is a lot of potential and feedback can make them grow. I hope they read through this review and find what they need to improve on!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business problems this software solves is the need for businesses to start getting on video marketing. It is the future of all marketing and businesses not taking advantage of this trend are surely missing out a huge chunk, like a Hippo sized miss!

"Great tool to create and edit my videos"

What do you like best?

I liked that I have the ability to record directly from my webcam, make a screenshot and audio and at the same time edit it. all in a very simple and practical interface. Hippo Video generates a link that can be shared.

I also get detailed information about who is watching my video and how they are reacting to the video.

What do you dislike?

At the moment I have not had problems with the platform alone that is not completely free.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend this tool, since I can make and edit videos quickly and easily, in a very intuitive interface.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Hippo Video has helped me deliver my work more efficiently to my clients with an almost professional quality and this tool has a good storage capacity in the profile.

"Best video hosting platform "

What do you like best?

Hippo Video provides the flexibility to handle everything about videos under one roof. The features they offer helped me increase the amount of content absorbed by my audience. Their hosting platform allowed me to communicate and engage with my viewers.

In addition, Hippo Video has a rich set of features with which I'm able to create, import, edit, share, and track videos.

What do you dislike?

Though Hippo Video has made my experience seamless, it would be more helpful if they provide a bit more freedom to customize timeline actions in my style. That would allow me to gain more information from my viewers and understand their requirements.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you want to handle every step of your video journey in one place, you can use Hippo Video without giving it a second thought.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using the Hippo Video hosting platform I’m able to target and reach a large audience. With the real-time analytics provided by Hippo Video, I'm able to keep track of how my customers are engaging with the video. I'm able to get individual viewer reports as well apart from shares report, reaction report, demographic report etc.

"Hippo has the potential to become an all round beast in video management"

What do you like best?

We have checked, tested and now loving it to the core. Hippo is best in its class. Trust me when I say it is better that the combined Loom, Cloudapp, Droplr and many more similar. Even it has its strong points which even Camtasia does not possess (the per device license price being one of them). Some of the top level features are like

Pro editing features, hosting of all the videos, importing an existing video option, create a gif from a video, users adding, storage facility, acting as a video player (along with player customization), custom domain option,

awesome call to action designs to a video, sending a link to an user or client for creating a video testimonial or screen record without any sign up, superbly fast video rendering and many more hidden gems. And then the solid customer support. Hippo is a beast and should get the highest concentration.

What do you dislike?

Some more interactive call to action, playlist, rich text editor, video url custom slug, blur feature, alphabetical folder name, desktop app are some of the features are needed.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Its has high prospect and a solid team behind it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Client training, onboarding, software bugs, etc

"Extensive Analytics for a Video Screen & Capture Tool"

What do you like best?

The analytics for sure! You can see how much of your video has been watched which is super helpful when you're using it to train.

The other features I like are:

- Annotation tools (I like the focus one the best!)

- Being able to a description

- Being able to use my own branding

- Gmail extension: you can add the video right there in your email

- Notification when email has been opened and when video has been watched

- Categories: I can keep my videos for different people and clients in their own category

- Users: I can give collaborators access as well as restrict them to certain categories

- Ability to host it on my own domain, so my link is: videos[.]mydomainname[.]com

What do you dislike?

That I'm tied to Chrome...it can get a little buggy.

Would love a shortened link feature

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you don't use Chrome, you won't find this useful.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Training and explaining. I need to show my clients and collaborators various different things and Hippo Video helps me do that wonderfully.

"If i need to do a screenrecord or editing my media, i can definitely use Hippo Video"

What do you like best?

In this service you can record your screen with a extention (To Google Chrome for being more specific) and them also edit the final media that you have. I think its very interesting having in mind the expensive that could be a software to do the work that Hippo Video with a really good deal offers you the posibility to make it on your browser.

What do you dislike?

I don't have a negative perspective about this software, well it could be to have in mind the fact that its just to use it on Chrome, for some people that could be a problem. But the rest, its a nice service with a good interface and integration.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you don't want to donwload or just can't have the software that you need to edit with you everytime, you can use this services on your browser and definitely have real benefits in time and also quality. Recommended to make screenrecords and Video hosting for those who likes other servers to up.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can edit my shots and even record from my cam or my screen. Excelent features and integration with social networks and mail services. With a competitive price and with the benefit of do it from your browser with download just an extention and not a heavy software to install.

"Great for short instructional videos"

What do you like best?

The ability to really quickly create a very simple webcam and screen sharing video and then share it with a client within minutes of recording is really useful.

What do you dislike?

The browser interface and detection of hardware can be a bit temperamental, site and editor can be buggy and at times unresponsive. Upload of video tends to fail or just freezes. The editor is almost un-useable. I end up exporting all video so I can finish off. For example today's effort and using the "Professional Editor" resulted in only being able to hear audio, video was not rendered, and the tracks were named incorrectly. This was a desktop recording with recorded audio via Mic and the tracks were named Webcam and Desktop?

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This platform has so much promise but work needs to be done to make it faster and more stable. I have tried both Linux and Windows, use the Chrome or Chromium browser and each time have been disappointed that I could not complete the entire project and had to resort to exporting it and using my desktop software. I understand that Video editing and recording on a Web platform is full of challenges however this is what the product does so it should do it better. At this stage I will not be renewing my subscription next year and pretty much regret paying it this year.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can support and train my customers without having to make site visits all the time.

"If you like to do everything on your browser, this is your video edition software."

What do you like best?

I like about this website, the posibility to make videos in different ways. You can record with your own webcam, and also record your screen action with just download an extension for the browser. And thats not all, you can record and then edit with the nice editor from Hippo Video and get your audiovisual work done.

What do you dislike?

I have to say, im not a Chrome fan, because it takes too much from my RAM process. HippoVideo tools for screen recording works as a Chrome Extension and that makes the only browser to can use to manage this website features.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I like to record some screen actions from my work as designer, and maybe explain how it works a software or the process to edit some media. I think its very recommended, and you can have bonus for share to people to join to HippoVideo services.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Its very complete, i can record, edit and share from it. Can create a video from images and customize the complete media. Also have a friendly mode to work with referals and get a bigger gamma of tools to work on HippoVideo.

"Totally helpfull and with excelente features for cam recording and screen-recording."

What do you like best?

I like about this one, the full package that it haves. You can record, edit, and even create a video from images. I foud it very complete and actually its a natural way to share your work because you can put together different scenes from cam recording and screen recording, as create gifs from this scenes. With nice compatibilty about formats and conversion.

What do you dislike?

I don't think in Hippo Video as my principal work tool, not for a bad reason but talking about video editing we can obviusly find more in a Adobe tool, more customization or competitive filters. But why not as a resource to make an emergency edit or, just to explain yourself with a screen record with voice and thats all. You can get something really basic but with an excelent result.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're not an expert on video editing, don't you worry, try with the easy way, Hippo Video will works for you with excellent results, without being so exigent with your computer requirements

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I think in Hippo Video like an video record and edition, with a really low cost and very good features. You can refer your friends to use it and experiment and even recieve bonus for your own features on it. With minimum 5 GB of bandwidth to work initialy.

"create and share your videos with just a few clicks"

What do you like best?

hippo video is a very easy and fast way to create tutorials and record videos of interest.

The design in general is simple and intuitive and its use is quite simple, you just record or upload images and you're done. You can add some transition effects and some other things and you are ready to upload and share on youtube, facebook and other social networks.

It has the advantage of being able to count the views of your videos.

What do you dislike?

Obviously the amount of filters and effects is quite basic, which I think takes some points off this program, so too, sometimes the upload of the videos becomes very slow, which is somewhat annoying.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is a good way to start in the creation and massification of videos of interest, without a doubt it is a very easy program to use and with very good results.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has allowed me to make some tutorials about programs, which makes it easier to explain how it works and how to configure a certain program.

"Its really helpfull and effective, easy to use and with great results"

What do you like best?

I like about hippo video the feature about screenrecord, i can do all my youtube work with this very cool and with nice intregations software. You can also create a video from images and create a long piece with effects and transisions. Very recommended to manage video files and edit a little bit online.

What do you dislike?

Its not a classic video editing tool, you can't expect manage plugins and use a long list of fonts or effect. But its actually really effective about his function, and my favorite the easy way to record the screen and also the webcam to get a really cool video.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

You want to make some screen videos for youtube? better you try HippoVideo and do it easy, with nice features for productions and video edition and with a really cheap cost. Highly Recommended.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Im taking seriously with my students to make some tutorials about music production or quality lirycs, with this software i can explain from my particular pc screen what you have to do to learn create some samplers and basic music lyrics.

"Completely brandable video marketing and costumer support sollution"

What do you like best?

- Brand your shared videos with a top bar logo, a player logo, favicon, page titel and your own domain

- Clean Google Chrome extension to easily start recording within seconds

- Guest recording: Send a link to a customer, via which he can record himself a video (testimonial, query etc.)

- Fast and customer feedback driven development of new features

What do you dislike?

- At the moment they need typically 15 - 20 days to set up the custom DNS for you so that you can use your custom domain

- The shared video pages offer commenting and emoji reaction features. You can only disable both simultaneously. For lot clients commenting would be useful, but emoji would be too playful

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- Getting as personal with the customer as possible without the need of live communication -> Informing extensively about services and building trust about the promised outcome

- Gathering video feedback and testimonials without any hassle for the costumer to set up his tools properly

"Simple video & screen capture tool"

What do you like best?

The ease of use is great - it's so easy for me to click a couple of buttons to start recording. The interface is pretty intuitive and exporting is easy!

What do you dislike?

The compression of videos can take a little while. The playback quality when editing videos is also less than ideal (audio seems degraded, and the progress slider for the video seems to "lose track" when trying to skip to different parts of the video).

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It wouldn't hurt to try some of the other products out there to be able to compare Hippo to them. Some of the real benefits become really apparent when standing the products side-by-side.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm using the tool to create short instructional videos / job aids for work, and also creating presentation recordings to share.

"Great app for screen presentations"

What do you like best?

I love how easy it is to use and how intuitive all the menus and options are. It's great to use the Chrome extension and to be able to edit the video once it's been captured. Also, their support team is really helpful, efficient and responsive.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I would improve is the ability to choose how and where to show the webcam recording square. It would be great to be able to move it freely, choose the size and shape, etc. I believe it's not possible to do so yet, or if it is, it's not readily available.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Go for it. It's great!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm recording tons of videos for my school's Facebook page and for my students in order to teach them English.

"Great support video tool"

What do you like best?

The ability to create video tickets as a guest and also the possibility to create a video library for FAQ, categorize the videos, export them tu multiple channels like YouTube withing the platform and more.

What do you dislike?

They need to work on how to find the account information of the plan that we pay. It's not in one page. And to get auto subtitles you need to Pro Package.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are in the search for a great video hosting and video tickets, then this is the best tool for that. They integrate really great with WordPress.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Video support and guidance for clients. Recording bugs and reporting. Also as a private video library of things I'm fixing on websites, so I can know how to reproduce the steps after the fix on another website.

"Nice features, useful for client support & sales"

What do you like best?

A surprisingly full featured application, which integrates well into GSuite. Very simple and easy to use, simply click the record button and you are recording right away. Includes screen recording, webcam and voice, according to requirements. Although I haven;t used it, the Testimonials functionality is a great idea.

What do you dislike?

Their application and website user interface text is very light and hard to read. It's pretty painful on the eyes every time I use it.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

They have a free plan to try out first to see if it works for you.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it to quickly screen record how to do something on my own computer, then send it to a client. A lot easier than trying to describe technical solutions over the phone.

"Hippo size your Videos anyone?"

What do you like best?

What entice me to buy a subscription to Hippo video and become one of its StackSocial accounts is the potential to be a disruptor in the industry of video marketing. They have the Video Leads / Hosting / Editing / Screencording capabilities that I haven't seen in the industry yet.

What do you dislike?

What I least liked about Hippo video is their not so sexy video landing page for your hosted videos with them. Also the LIMITED videos that you can SCREEN RECORD is really a DEALBRAKER for most since you can have SO MANY MISTAKES while recording and they count each recording as 1!

Hippo video developers, hear me out on this. There is a new competition in town and their name is LOOM. Currently it is free but soon will be offering a PRO paid version. If you want to sell more, you have to fast track the roadmap of this software. It is currently lagging in terms of the features that people want. Maybe have your users suggest features. Your email newsletter design is very basic, by the way.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For those businesses considering an ALL in ONE solution for video hosting, editing, screen recording and more, do consider HIPPO VIDEO. It is still a young platform but could very well be valuable in the future of your video marketing needs for your business.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Problems of business owners is how to gain more leads for their potential customers and Hippo Video promises to address that.

"Quick to learn and easy to use. Does exactly what I need. "

What do you like best?

Allows me to create short videos to add to our platform and knowledge base. The recording tool is super easy to set up and use. The editing capabilities are great and seem to work well, although I haven't yet done anything too complex with the editor. I like the ability to upload the videos directly to YouTube.

What do you dislike?

If you have separately recorded visual and audio, splicing them together is a bit of an ordeal as you need to download each separately and then re-upload them to Hippo Video. I find the drawing/spotlight tool difficult to use when in the middle of a recording, although this could easily be a result of my lack of coordination with speaking and drawing at the same time.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Stakeholder buy-in and informing and educating customers.

The flexibility, you can customise everything (depending on plan you're on). The analytics are great for tracking down everything about the videos you put out. Another great thing about Hippo Video is the ease of setup, gmail addon and chrome extensions. Also, they just announced zapier integration, I'm thinking CRM :)

What do you dislike?

The UI is a little old looking, I think a simple revamp of the UI design will excel Hippo Video to the next level. This will bring my rating to 9 or 10 :) I'm from a visual background.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I'd highly recommend this as a tool to reach out personally to your customers or to record personalised videos / walk-through of your product. On top of that, the campaign feature looks great for mass emailing, but haven't had a lot of experience with this feature just yet.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It allows the personal touch, either one by one with a simple video message or even a screen recorded walk-though specific to your customer or a mass email campaign with a "personalised to your audience" video message. Personal marketing is the way forward, Hippo Video are running in front.

"Video Host + Video Call to Action = Video Marketing Revolution"

What do you like best?

What made me buy this sotware was the unique value proposition I see in the product. Aside from the generous 200GB bandwidth that I have every month for my hosted videos, I get to have a screen recorder and professional video editor all in one. That does not yet include the integrations, and all the rest of the features in this awesome software as a service. I also like the fact that Hippo will have its own stock library and I would be able to access it using the same service. I can also create video slideshows of images that I uploaded to the site. Also love the subtitle generation, although this is an add-on for my plan.

What do you dislike?

Maybe the most disliked feature is the limitation on the number of uploads, screen records I can do in a month. Also the branded channel can be more appealing or more customizations on the front end of the channel.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

More well known video hosting with CTA capabilities are pretty much expensive which small and medium businesses would not be able to afford. This is the primary reason Hippo video makes it more affordable and accessible to all market segments.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Businesses have been using Youtube very exhaustively, but why be in a public domain when you can privately have your own custom branded domain and channel in a dedicated, more reliable solution? Hippo video solves this problem and the video marketing revolution will still continue to dominate the market.

"The Most Feature-full Video Hosting & Editing App "

What do you like best?

I have really immersed with it video editing capability in the cloud. It's the very responsive almost same experience as desktop editing. On top of its comprehensive sharing and tracking capability. The feature that really amazed me is to capture video testimonials by sending them a link.

I have been using Hippo Video Hosting and Editing Service for some time, I have found it a very handy tool. Especially very easy editing tool without leaving the cloud. This has solved my problem of maintaining of different video tools and hosting services.

The support team is awesome, they are very responsive and accommodating.

What do you dislike?

I bought this app through stacksocial, later I became to know that customer domain is not covered. This was a bit disappointing, but when I contacted the developer they listened and accommodated.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

They should enable custom domain with all type of plans, this will enhance the usability of their platform and will develop customer loyalty. Else its always easy switch away.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have always struggled with video editing, it's always very cumbersome, editing and then uploading. Here i can do everything in the cloud

"HippoVideo is solution to all our video needs."

What do you like best?

Though there so many feature but most we like is it's video editing and testimonial capture ability/feature as it's totally cloud based means free from download, installation and regular updates. Plus it has some many essential call to action options and custom watermarking feature too. Plus their on time support is also an added advantage.

What do you dislike?

There's no feature we dislike as such, just sometimes it works little slow, particularly in rendering. We're looking for more designs and player screens.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

We highly recommed HippoVideo to others.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's helping us in taking video testimonials and putting it on our website. We can also create the on-boarding video with the help of HippoVideos.

"Outstanding Online Video Effectiveness Monitoring Application""

What do you like best?

What hippo video is able to do very best is all about monitoring your video advertisements overall performance, it may carry out some simple video enhancing online with no need of further software program installation. The hosting platform offered by them permitted me to talk and interact with my audiences.

What do you dislike?

Overall Hippo video made my experience a perfect one but the user interface of the application is just old.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Hippo video is a super online application for recording the screen, you can easily make any type of tutorial video with the help of this application. The support is also very good for this application by the team.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am making use of this application to create the best online community. It is having the feature of recording the everythig you need to record.

"Great Web Based Video Creator!"

What do you like best?

Hippo has been cost efficient and convenient. The video quality is good for my needs which is primarily working within the higher education realm. The ease of navigation and the wonderful support that is given to novices like me has made it easier to be creative in how I present content.

What do you dislike?

Some of the add-ons do have a cost...though not prohibitive. I wish that was a bit clearer at the outset.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Very reasonable in price with good quality video. Great support as well.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using this to create and contribute to the creation of an effective online community. Since my class is totally online, I am using Hippo to create presence with my students and vice versa.

"Tried most of the competition, Hippo video is currently leading the way"

What do you like best?

The videos render very quickly in browser, and there are useful tools such as drawing tools (even for while recording) ... and Full HD! The roadmap is very strong (blurring tools for personal details obscuring), and support has been very friendly (everything worked - user error lol).

What do you dislike?

The only issues we have had, is that in full screen playback, skipping backwards / ahead with the bar can be a bit fiddly. Also, I had some "user errors" but I think that the setup for picture in picture webcam settings could be clearer. Although, it might be me ;)

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Saves time and money from the moment you start using it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Client communication / client support / cross team communication / quick tutorials.

"Great platform - A Loom alternative"

What do you like best?

Ease of use and integration to my account, and the platform, as described, is usable right away, unlike other startup applications I've used.

What do you dislike?

Quality of the guest video options - I don't know if this is just based on the camera video when users test it or it's within the platform. Plus, they kind of look elongated rather than optimized to scale with one of my tests before - But I know they're on the right track to improve it!

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Hippo Video's team is certainly on the right track. I was considering Loom before but this one takes the cake - especially with the custom domains that can be enabled with your plan, to give you that company look and feel for your URLs and Videos.

The analytics also are great, to know your customer sentiments for your videos. I wouldn't switch right now that this one is a great deal.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Customer testimonials and reviews - This might not be Hippo Video's main use-case, but they do offer guest video uploads - And we use that for customer reviews.

Sentiments and analytics also come inside each video - to know how users would react to the video based on the timeline presented in the video.

"Great program for a value!"

What do you like best?

I like the ease in which I can upload, edit and share videos. I also appreciate that I can link to Hippo Video from my website and not slow down my system with videos.

What do you dislike?

The lag of upload/download sometimes can be lengthy but I have learned that is a good time to get a drink or work on another project while it is running on another screen.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Give it a try! It doesn't hurt to test it out. Support is great with questions and I appreciate them taking the time to assist me.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can press record on a webinar and forget about it. My videos download and then I can quickly get into Hippo Video and get moving.

The program allows for ease and I recommend it for your company.

"The All-in-One tool for Sales, Support and Marketing!"

What do you like best?

This tool is damn simple and easy to use whereas the editor equally has all the essential editing features in it. The best thing is it's cloud-based, so you need not to install and download large files. All we need is some more themes and video player skins as available with other similar tools.

Secondly, with HippoVideo we can also add custom audio and voice-overs to our videos.

What do you dislike?

Nothing as such but wish if we could render the videos little fast. The android app will be the best thing for the video testimonial.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I humbly recommend HippoVideo to other Digital Media and SaaS-based Startups for content creation and video hosting.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's helping us in creating and hosting videos with CTA. We are also using it in creating videos for on-boarding and explaining the process of availing RTIwala Services.

"really simple way to have some awesome results on your media. "

What do you like best?

Im becoming very familiar with his use and having always better results, i can take screen videos and make the best video tutorials about using a software or playing a game.

What do you dislike?

I think this software for his price and the service, we can use it as a tool, but its not the last you'll need to can get your work done. Actually have amazing features but the final picture about render could be better.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're trying to learn how to record your own screen live, or you just needing to edit some videos and get a final work, HippoVideo its not just a recording tool, even have a sharing and hosting features you'll be benefize.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Honestly HippoVideo can help you to manage some simple shots and get it better look, and focus on requirements this software its a elemental option to work with. You just have to check some tutorials and you will see how easy and effective could be this one.

"Best screen capturing platform for bug tracking"

What do you like best?

Hippo Video helps me record my screen and offers markup tools, using which I can quickly explain things while recording itself. It doesn’t require any bulk downloads. The usage is simple with one action to start and stop recording.

What do you dislike?

The free plan comes with their branding. Though their pricing is totally reasonable and worth every penny.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Hippo Video is a lot more than just a screen capturing platform. If you are looking to get the most out of videos, then you must check this platform.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This amazing video platform allowed me to quickly capture the technical bugs that I come across every day. I then share the video link provided with my team. Doing so my team and I are able to understand and fix the bugs immediately.

"All in one Video Marketing Platform"

What do you like best?

I really love the ability to screen record. You can add comment and collaborate with team mates and clients. Also you can have them do testimonials. Great overall. Very useful if you're a marketer or developer.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes in can be slow uploading. Also the video editing isn't that great. Slow and buggy at times but it does the basics. These are my main pet peeves.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My main problems are communicating with my team (since they're remote) and clients. It gives me the benefit of recording everything that I spoke with someone so I can go back and remember what they said. They also have basic annotation features which allows us to mark down things. Another benefit is that they also provide cloud hosting. You can create and host videos on here.

"Awesome tool"

What do you like best?

It's so fast and easy to use. I use to use Camtasia. It was such a pain because it required so many more steps to get a video to someone. With this you just click, record, and then send the link. EASY!

What do you dislike?

It doesn't have every editing feature in the world but that's not really what it's for. So that's ok.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's a fantastic tool. Simple to use. Inexpensive and great support.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It saves me absolutely loads of time and quite frankly makes me 100x more willing to record a video to show one of my team something that I would have been otherwise.

Overall very happy with the product. Small glitches but the team is working on this as we speak.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Great tool to have, everyone needs video testimonials!-

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easily capturing powerful video testimonials that would not be possible if the client was required to record and upload a video, making this as easy as clicking 2 buttons dramatically increases response.

"Makes my job easier!"

What do you like best?

I love that I can show our customers exactly where to point and click with the video. I can also verbalize what needs to be said.

What do you dislike?

Some of my customers are having trouble using the links they are getting errors and cannot use the link to record.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I do Customer Support for computer software so having customers explain in words vs showing us can be difficult at times. Makes it much easier to see the problem and exactly the steps the customers are taking.

"Extremely simple to use | a 5 star product"

What do you like best?

All the Marketing Tools one needs in a video especially the Lead Generation Form and the ability to share the video on various social media platform.

What do you dislike?

It does not have an Auto play function like other players have. Also during the embedding we could get an option to chose % instead of pixels.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Price points would be a huge factor.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Most importantly problem solved is it retains the visitors to my website. earlier I used to embed videos from youtube and many times my visitors to land up on youtube and never come back. I have stopped using YouTube to show the videos.

I feel it needs better administrative capabilities in terms of managing your account such as billing and licence fees.

"Awesome screen recorder for company trainings "

What do you like best?

The best feature that Hippo has is the ability to export the video to google drive without having to download it. It’s a huge time saver and hippo is super easy to use.

What do you dislike?

That the free version only lets you record for 5 minutes at a time. 10 minutes would be better.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The paid version of Hippo is helping me to save time when creating video walkthroughs for clients and coworkers.

"Worked well until it didn't"

What do you like best?

As a teacher the ability to record lesson videos my students could watch on day when there was a sub teacher in the classroom was amazing. The kids loved the videos and I loved that they still were getting a lesson in even with a sub.

What do you dislike?

Unfortunately I signed up for this services with the intentions of proving video links to students that they could individually visit. This blew my subscriptions bandwidth out of the water and locked the video up and my students could no longer watch. Even subscribing to a higher bandwidth didn't provide the service I needed to make my subscription worth the money.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Be aware of how much bandwidth you will need.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This is a great service if you want to make a video and have one person stream it or you have the finances to pay for more bandwidth.
