Remember to switch to private mode!

Using public video services as part of a media production process is an attractive option. It’s cheap or even free. The user interface might already be familiar to many and the basic features works well.

Even big companies are still using Youtube, Vimeo or other public video service for managing content.

Using public video services as part of a media production process is an attractive option. It’s cheap or even free. The user interface might already be familiar to many and the basic features works well.

The more complex a company’s video production process is becoming – the more videos are produced and published – the more collaboration features company will need.

When using public video services one person would have to set the videos private and keep record of which link is tied to which content. In the worst case uploading a draft video with public settings to Vimeo can cause a big blow to a company’s image. Vimeo has 100 million users and the draft of welcome to Staff Christmas Party video can spread instantly from one continent to another. Or updating the summer sale campaign video to the correct version can cause extreme stress to be sure you fixed the right version.

An unfinished video uploaded to public access may also contain parts of material that has not yet been licensed and this can lead to a copyright infringement. Content may look very rough and unfinished or it could reveal trade secrets about product development too early. Or maybe the video has just not been approved by all the necessary parties and this creates major headaches in larger companies.

And – according to our research, companies are still using Dropbox, Vimeo and Google drive as their main platforms to manage media assets.

So, remember to switch to private. Or what if you just keep your videos and other media behind a password? Safe and secured.
