In addition to tight YouTube and Brightcove video support, CommonSpot includes options to host video on your local or cloud-based network. This is a good choice if you're just getting started with video on your website or if you have a small number of videos that you want to keep under direct control.

With CommonSpot you can manage your video assets—hosted locally or on dedicated external servers—the same way you manage all your other content. Browse and preview multimedia and players through a common library. Local video displays just like any other file type when searching in CommonSpot for easy insertion into pages—no technical skill required. Create channels for your local video and assign metadata, security, and more through a simple point-and-click interface. Publish and reuse local video just like any other content object.

CommonSpot ships with a built-in set of local video players for the most common formats and includes full support for HTML5 for local or remote playback.
