A video platform like no-other

Reviewed on 2019/05/29

The team at Buto are great at listening to users and understanding how they are using video. The platform is built and works for the user. The periodic breakfast/lunch catch ups are a great way of keeping up to date with the latest video trends, platform updates, and a unique space for users to share ideas. The team are responsive and always on hand to assist with queries.

Pros

Buto integrates with our marketing automation tech-stack and also has a great API to help us report internally to stakeholders without the need for manual hours spent pulling reports. We set periodic reporting for our video performance to share amongst team members which help us measure impact and engagement. The platform is easy to use and it's upload and encode time is fast - meaning less time is spent waiting for content to be published.

Cons

When we initially on-boarded with Buto, the platform had limited Podcast functionality. In the beginning, it meant we had to change internal processes. However, by consulting with it's users and listening to their needs, Buto have put in place a release timeline with changes that helped us achieve what was required in relation to Podcast functionality.

Powerful & easy to use

Reviewed on 2019/06/14

Buto provides a mid range video platform that sits between the likes of Vimeo and enterprise level products such as Brightcove and Qumu. But it offers all the features that most businesses really need; analytics, integrations, captions, easy to use players and interaction.

Buto provides the platform to actively manage your video content marketing.

Pros

Easy to use players - embed, add slides, captions, auto publish to Youtube.
Integrations - key marketing automation platforms, CaptionHub. Plus an API to pull content.
Interaction - building calls to action and resources on top of the player.
Analytics - solid analytics for reporting and an API.

Cons

The admin area has recently been redesigned which has helped - still some minor enhancements could be done.
Work in progress on more robust tagging of videos - supports standard tagging but some of our clients have very structured taxonomy.

It just works and it is secure

Reviewed on 2019/05/30

It was really easy to get all our existing content uploaded and transcoded into the Buto system and the team were incredibly helpful in making it all happen quickly and effortlessly.

Pros

As a company with security and information control at the centre of what we do, Buto makes it very easy to upload, manage and distribute video content to the people we want and to ensure it is safe. It is able to play video files as well as audio (podcast) files which means it is versatile while still very simple to use within our team.

Cons

The only thing we would change is the ability to update the screen position of the subtitles on videos

Buto - User experience

Reviewed on 2019/05/31

Overall I've had a very positive experience of Buto. I find the interface very easy to user and the customer support has been there when I've encountered any issues. Keep up the good work!

Pros

I think there's plenty of perks to Buto. One that I find most beneficial is the ability to replace video without having to change the shareable link/URL.

Cons

I think it would be great to have the ability to 'tag' users to a video project. By doing this you could review the videos associated to that user. At the moment I struggle to locate videos when searching by user.

Competition for YouTube

Reviewed on 2019/05/31

Very happy with the application. We use it at work more than YouTube. Would recommend it to others.

Pros

Lovely interface, really easy to use, . You can tell a lot of effort has gone into the design and usability of the site. Uploading, embedding, adding subtitles is all very easy.

Cons

Users can not comment on a video. Not sure you can put restrictions on a video either. Not adaptive for mobile devices.
