MediaZilla

MediaZilla’s system is very reliable but its outward appearance is a bit lacking. It’s not as brandable as I personally would like and I find the client-facing interface to lack a styled aesthetic, especially for my wedding clients. You can create chapters within a video and make custom jump points and thumbnails to those chapters, but after years on the market there’s still no “play all” button that allows viewers to watch all of the videos in a collection consecutively. At the end of each video, you return to the menu. The one thing I find lacking the most is an organizational system for individual videos and collections. To date there is still no folder organizational system available to group assets, however you can sort by title of a video or collection, or sort by upload date in ascending or descending order. MediaZilla puts limits on the amount of data you can use based on your membership plan but offers you the ability to expand that quota if necessary. If you’re a volume-based business and you upload a lot of data, one of their premium tiered plans would be a good fit. All things considered, MediaZilla is a great option for giving your clients an easy way to view their videos. It’s enhanced even more by the MediaZilla app for Apple TV, Roku, Smart TVs and other streaming services.
