Winner:  Wistia!

Wistia has a fuller feature set and a lower price to activate them all. Wistia is especially strong in analytics and customer engagement metrics. Viddler lets users directly pay for content and profit from advertising. Viddler don’t publicize all their feature plans however, so we may be missing some out.

Winner: Wistia!

Wistia is the clear winner here and plays nicely across a range of platforms. Viddler integrates with HTML5 – they also don’t publicize their integration very well so we could be missing some vital info!
