Choose a video platform that is
cost effective at scale

As you keep adding new users to your short video app, your usage increases significantly in no time. With most vendors, that means your costs increase as you scale.

Not with us. There's no platform fee and you pay for what you use. With volume discounts, your costs decrease when the volume increases.

Add watermark to your videos

The best way to build your audience base? Making your videos go viral on other platforms. Let your users share videos with your watermarked logo on each video. The watermark can be added automatically.

You can add additional branding within your short-form app by adding your logo to the video player, or using a domain of your choice.
