All New Vidhub 2.0 – Better, Faster, More Affordable. Coming Soon to You

In our last few blog posts, we talked about direct uploads to Vidhub, improved Dropbox integration, and having a better branded Vidhub experience for your team. Since that post, we’ve had the privilege of working with some of the world’s best studios, agencies, corporations, and educational institutions to get their candid feedback – what’s working right now, and what’s missing from Vidhub.

With that, I’m excited to tease our upcoming release of Vidhub 2.0 – our biggest update ever, crafted from feedback and fuelled by enthusiasm and support from great teams like yours.

What’s new in Vidhub 2.0

Review Private or Copyrighted Videos Easily with Direct Uploads to Vidhub

 

Simply drag and drop (or click to select) videos into our new Flow Uploader and we’ll take care of resizing, transcoding, etc. We recommend uploading H.264 MP4 files, but support over a dozen other file types. Upload files up to 8GB in size, and from 480p to 4K in resolution.

Better Branding & Client Experience with Custom Subdomains – orgname.vidhub.co

Every team on Vidhub will have their own subdomain to access the platform and share with their clients. This means your team will access vidhub at orgname.vidhub.co, making for a simpler and cleaner interface and no distractions for clients or coworkers.

Easily Review Videos from Dropbox with Vidhub’s New Dropbox Integration

 

Using the familiar Dropbox file picker, choose videos to easily import them to review and discuss in Vidhub. Videos imported from Dropbox are now uploaded directly to Vidhub for better compatibility and performance.

Clone Projects for Easier Segmented Reviewing

Duplicate a project and all the videos within with just one click – this makes it easier to review the same videos with separate teams without the need to re-add videos multiple times.

Simpler Interface and a Better Mobile Experience for Easier Reviewing (and Reviewing On-the-Go)

The new Vidhub is built as a progressive web application, which means it works great on Phones, Tablets, or Computers, Apple or Android, Windows, Mac, or Linux. Vidhub 2.0 features a familiar, but refreshing new look for the platform focused on friendliness and ease-of-use, no matter what device you, your team, or your clients are using. Stay tuned for further improvements on our mobile interface in the coming weeks as well.

The Fastest Way to Review Videos, Anywhere in the World

Pairing the latest and greatest technology with a distributed, global server infrastructure means you and your users have a fast, reliable experience from our home in Canada and the United States, all the way to our customers in 799 cities across the world (and counting!).

More Affordable Vidhub Plans

We always strive to deliver the best experience, and part of that includes making sure Vidhub is accessible and affordable for teams of all sizes. This is why we are excited to announce our new, more affordable plans! All of our plans across the board will be receiving more features and usage AND will be discounted in price at the same time! Anyone on a paid plan currently will be moved to the new plans and your old subscription will be prorated accordingly when you migrate (with a small discount going forward as our way of saying thanks). Our enterprise customers on a current plan will be contacted to refresh their plans as well.

When does Vidhub 2.0 launch?

Look for all these updates, and more, set to launch in late April, 2017 (that’s next month!) As always, we welcome any questions or feedback at any time – you can email me directly at shub@vidhub.co. Thank you once again for all of your support and feedback – we can’t wait to share this new update with you.

A Simpler Way to Review Videos With Collaborators

In our Vidhub February 2015 Roadmap, we talked about many features, including the ability to allow anyone to view and comment on a video without having to make an account. We have heard from video agencies and freelancers time and time again about the importance of making the video review process simple and streamlined for clients. Today we are excited to launch a way to review videos privately, without even creating an account on Vidhub.

Review videos with collaborators

Introducing shareable links, the easiest way to get feedback on your videos from clients, friends, and other collaborators using Vidhub. Simply send the link (whether it’s via email, Basecamp, Facebook, carrier pigeon, etc.) and clients just need to enter their name to review.

No passwords to forget, no emails to deal with, no confusion. Simple.

Simple video review for clients

We’re thrilled to be rolling out this feature free for all users starting today! If you have any questions or feedback, feel free to email us at blog@vidhub.co.

Introducing Organizations and Comment Exporting

In February, we rolled out projects and predictive search for invitations and laid out a roadmap for Vidhub.

Today we’re excited to announce that Organization Accounts and Comment Exporting are here!

Manage your team with an organization account

Vidhub enterprise video review tool

Adding members to an organization gives easy access for the entire team to add, manage, and share videos. It also provides centralized billing and shared video limits. Down the line, this will include the ability to set individual roles in your team and assign roles to comments, videos, and more.

Export your comments to PDF, SRT and TXT

Export feedback from videos to PDF, SRT, and TXT

Easily export feedback to a print-ready document (.pdf), a video subtitle file (.srt), and a plain text file (.txt). Whether you want to print feedback, have it on a second monitor as you edit, view a video full screen with feedback as captions, or have a version saved for archiving or sharing – it’s your feedback, and you should be able to use it however you want. Down the line, this will include support for XML Markers in Final Cut Pro X, Final Cut Pro 7, Sony Vegas, Avid Media Composer, and other formats. If you have any requests, feel free to drop us an email at blog@vidhub.co

Both Organization Accounts and Exporting Comments are available right now for our premium users. If you haven’t upgraded yet, head over to https://vidhub.co/upgrade to try them out free for 30 days!

Vidhub Roadmap: Feb 2015

To begin, thank you.

Whether you’ve been with us from the beginning or have recently joined Vidhub, we are ecstatic to have you on board as we make producing videos a better process.

We’ve grown, changed, and matured a lot since our inception, and today we are excited to share our plans for the future with you. We plan on having these posts from time to time to share our victories, reflect on our mistakes, and discuss the road ahead. There’s a lot of work to be done, but we are incredibly grateful for all the support and feedback we have received so far – and we’re extremely excited for what’s to come.

With that, let’s jump in to the future of Vidhub:

What we are releasing today

Organize your videos into projects

Videos can now be organized within projects, making it easier to get to the videos you need in one click. As we roll out organizations and teams, this will also make it easy to share multiple videos with groups.

A better way to invite your team and clientsScreenshot 2015-02-11 19.41.53

A shiny new predictive search box helps you easily add people you’ve worked with before by name or email, and later by role.

What’s in the pipeline

Export your comments

Whether you want to print a PDF and have it handy for a meeting, or export a marker file right in your editing program – exporting comments is just a few clicks away. This will start with the ability to export a printable PDF and later will include support for Final Cut Pro X, Final Cut Pro 7, Sony Vegas, Avid Media Composer, and various other formats. If you have any requests, feel free to drop us an email at blog@vidhub.co

Manage your team with one account

Soon you’ll be able to add team members and clients to organizations and teams, allowing you to easily share videos and projects with a group of people. Down the line, this will include the ability to set individual roles in your team and assign roles to comments, videos, and more.

Review a video – distraction free

Sometimes it’s great to have a distraction free workspace when reviewing a video. This is why we are making it easy to hide all comments with a single click. You can also filter comments by user, giving you granular control over what you see.

Down the Road

Integrate with your Dropbox account

Add a video from your Dropbox account to share it with clients. Vidhub will automatically create a new revision when the file is updated.

White Label: Powered by Vidhub

The same easy-to-use Vidhub interface and experience, but with your great logo, colour scheme, and custom URL path. Vidhub white label will soon be available on the Agency and Enterprise plans.

Public videos: Go ahead – tell the world

Allow anyone to view and comment on a video without having to make an account.

Upload videos directly to Vidhub

All paid plans will be able to upload videos directly to Vidhub instead of just YouTube or Vimeo for a more streamlined workflow.
