Create Cinematic Experiences

We’ve built features that give you interactive entry points into your story,
guiding viewers through your content.

Generate Revenue

Our Pay Per Story and Subscription features allow users to securely pay for streamed video without ever leaving the Player, no matter where it's shared on the Web. You can feature merchandise from third-party retailers like Amazon and iTunes in a portable storefront within the Player, so every new share is a new point of sale.

Drive Distribution

The MediaStorm Platform empowers your audience to distribute your work. Using trackable embeds, you can see where your content is embedded and even disable an embed if necessary. Each embed keeps its full set of features, functionality, and content.

Know Your Audience

Detailed metadata makes your content easy to find online. The Player lets you attach a wealth of metadata to your videos, including project descriptions, related links, and a customizable menu to inform and engage your audience. Analytics makes it easy to track who is watching your content including completion rates and granular usage details.

Go Global

We’ve developed an easy solution to the tedious process of subtitling. Subtitles are stored independent of your video file, allowing you to update, enable, and disable them in real time and add multiple languages.

Control Your Assets

Other distribution platforms offer to host your work on their servers by marking up the cost or in exchange for a profit-share. The MediaStorm Platform gives you full command of your media to become truly independent.

Promote Your Brand

Brand the Player with easy-to-customize settings. Add your logo, choose your colors, add an optional video bumper anywhere in the playlist.

Include Ads & Sponsorship

Third-party advertising integration lets you play targeted ads according to metadata. If you have a sponsor, it's easy to promote them in your player.
