If you want to share large videos via a link, the common approach is to host videos on another site like YouTube or Vimeo. But hosting platforms tend to dampen the viewer’s watching experience by bombarding them with irrelevant ads and surveys. Even if you upload a video to YouTube Unlisted, it requires you to create a YouTube channel which isn’t the most convenient.
VEED makes your video sharing experience easier and faster by allowing you to create and share a link for your video in just a few seconds. Your viewers can enjoy the video right from their browser without any interruptions.
Why share videos using just a link with VEED:
- It’s a great way to share large videos in different formats on different platforms.
- It helps you go around size limitations so you can easily send videos on email, SMS, social media apps, etc.
- Viewers can easily watch videos online — no need to download large video files to view them.
- VEED makes it easier to collaborate by allowing viewers to comment on the video.
