If you've ever considered using Amazon's Simple Storage Service (S3) for hosting your video content, then you'll probably want to read my review of commercial video player options.
Ever since I started this blog I've been trying to get video to work on it. Not consistently... but about once a month I'd go try another so-called solution to getting video to work here. It was one of the outstanding issues with the blog that annoyed me since others were so easily able to do what was proving difficult on this site.
A week ago I finally caved in and bought a commercial video player, hoping that would solve my issues here and finally let me put my films and documentaries online.
I'd given up searching through the WordPress site trying ever available option... everyone says their free player is "The Answer", and yet none of them would work on this site.
The crappy part is that, since the products are free, customer service isn't exactly at an all-time high.
While my decision was ultimately based on the features that I required out of a video player, what caused me to write my review of commercial video players is Customer Service. While I have no doubt the customer service from all of the big-name commercial players is good, my personal experience with one of them proved to me that Customer Service is NOT dead, and I'll tell you exactly where it's not only alive... but thriving.
