Video hosting is a business in and of itself.
Quenza is not for video hosting, but can be used for distribution of videos and engaging clients with video content.
Video hosting platforms
You can host your videos using a dedicated video hosting platform, such as one of the following
- Vimeo: https://vimeo.com
- YouTube: https://youtube.com
- Wista: https://wistia.com
- Loom: https://loom.com
There are lots of other alternatives out there, but these are the ones we support within Quenza, have used ourselves and can genuinely recommend.
There are advantages and disadvantages to use each of these.
With YouTube, it may be hard to get rid of the logo and player controls, but it’s free.
For our videos that we want to be publicly accessible, we use our YouTube channel.
Vimeo and Wistia
Vimeo and Wistia are paid, but allow you to completely customize the player controls and even to add your own logo to the videos.
For our own videos that we don’t want to be publicly available, we are on the Vimeo Pro plan. (at 16 EUR per month)
Loom is suitable for quickly recording video messages for clients or screen sharing videos.
You can also use your Loom recordings inside of Quenza.
How to use videos with Quenza
As soon as you’ve found a place to host your videos, you can start using them in Quenza activities.
Simple drag the ‘video’ item from the items on the right-hand side into the activity builder.
You can now copy and paste the URL of one of your videos into the activity item.
For this example, I have copied and pasted the Youtube URL of an Alan Watts video into the video URL field.
This is what that looks like:
As you can see, Quenza automatically nicely embeds the video. No need to use an embed code.
This is what the activity with just one video will look like for clients:
