Video sharing sites have been known to remove videos without warning. More than 250,000 videos are removed on most days. Many are accidents. A website with a dead embedded video looks unprofessional. Confidence in the site or the business drops. Sales are lost. To solve this problem that many webmasters face, a service that monitors the videos and displays only those that are live and working is the only solution.
In many cases YouTube or Vimeo can remove, suspend or block your video. Entire YouTube channels and Vimeo channels have been known to have been shut for no particular reason. This places your business at risk. A dead embedded video on a website looks unprofessional. Confidence in the site or the business drops. Sales are lost. To solve this problem that many webmasters face, a service that monitors the videos and displays only those that are live and working is the only solution.
BeUpon monitors your online videos 24/7. If your embedded video is removed from YouTube, suspended, the entire channel is shut down or YouTube account is terminated, BeUpon will alert you about it and immediately replace the embedded video on your app / website with your pre-selected backup video. You can get 100% video uptime at your websites, applications and facebook pages.
BeUpon monitors embedded videos from YouTube and Vimeo for now. We are working on including more platforms in the nearest future.
Note: If both the primary and backup videos are blocked, BeUpon shows an “Under maintenance” message in the video window, giving you time to adjust and making you look good.
