If the idea of adding video to your site seems hopelessly complicated, take a look at just-launched EZWebPlayer. It promises to have you streaming video in just a few steps
The site actually soft-launched a little over a month ago to work out any bugs, but made its official launch announcement yesterday.
EZWebPlayer is a hosted service, and offers 10GB of storage for your videos. It also provides performance analytics and technical support. The biggest differentiator is price: service costs $14.99 per month, and the first month is free.
Videos are free of host branding, and offer sharing tools for viewers. There’s also an opt-in advertising system.
“This software satisfies demand from site owners and administrators who need simplified integrated video within a secure environment—free of third party branding and ads,” says Clint Pollock, the Chicago-based company’s founder. “Yes, it is simple to use, but we also answer the phone and provide impeccable customer support.”
Update 12/5/11: EZWebPlayer now offers unlimited storage, bandwidth, and transcoding for $14.99 per month.
