Video Hosting similar to a site like Udemy

HI Alex, if you want to create a site like Udemy where users post videos and other users pay to watch these tutorials, what video player should you use? Would Wistia work? If I use Vimeo, will other users be able to copy the URL and have free access? In addition, should you use Amazon S3 for storing? Thank you in advance!

Hi Alex. I decided to go with Wistia. I have taken a look at their documentation and searched everywhere, but could not find info on how I can implement a feature where users can post their own videos. Could you provide me some guidance (instructions) please? I want users to post videos that could be 1 or up to 20 for instance like Udemy. Thank you in advance.

Sorry, I'm afraid I don't know enough to help you on this one. I recommend reaching out to Wistia's support team - they do a great job and are pretty responsive!

You should take a careful look at each, but you should be able to use either. I believe they should have settings to allow viewing through an embed link but not through a URL (Wistia does for sure). They'll also both handle video hosting for you as part of their paid service. Hope that helps.
