Edpuzzle is aimed at teachers. Via Edpuzzle you can add interactions and voice-over to existing YouTube videos or you can upload your own video. The interaction list is minimal. Only two types of questions and notes are on the list of interactions you can add. In the notes, there is the possibility to add a hyperlink.

The interactions are added to the timeline and will show up in a sidebar when the video arrives at that particular timestamp. The teacher can send the finalized video to their students and view the results.  You can, however, upload a video or use a video from another teacher.

Edpuzzles interactivity is minimal yet effective. If you, however, need more interactivity in your video then hihaho might be the better option for you.

H5P is part of Joubel, a Norwegian company which offers a spectrum of features to enrich learning content. Interactive video is one of many possibilities. H5P interactions include several question types to drag-and-drop text. In addition, you can make your questions adaptive for when you want people that answered incorrectly to rewatch certain information.

The software is developed open-source and and offered with freemium business model. That means you may download it for free from h5p.org and install it on your own server. You can also purchase H5P via h5p.com as a SaaS solution. In that case you don't have to install the software on your own server. The open-source business model enables organizations to make content interactive with a small budget. That's why H5P is excellent for people in education who are technically savvy.

We can conclude that H5P has a wider range of offerings to make content interactive. H5P is great for handmade e-learning content in a broad sense. When it comes to interactive video, the possibilities with hihaho are much greater. The hihaho platform has more features and is much more advanced. Integration options of hihaho are more advanced as it is fully API based. It is also possible to automate interactive video production with hihaho. Therefore we suggest that hihaho is better suited for i.e. public education and corporate learning.

Luma1 is an interactive video platform for producing, managing, and delivering modern content for learning, selling, and marketing. The Luma1 platform brings video interactivity and data together with video to drive results for business. Luma1 and hihaho are platforms that both have many technical features and are free to try out. One distinction between the two platforms is that hihaho has advanced layering technology and, in our opinion, is easier to use. In addition, hihaho allows you to pay per video. To publish an interactive video at Luma1 you need to purchase a yearly subscription.

Mindstamp is an all-around tool to add interactions to a video. It especially has many fun question types that are suitable for sales and marketing. You can have someone set a date in the video for example or have your own video recorded as an answer to a question. Mindstamp has fewer publishing options than hihaho and does not work based on a timeline like hihaho, but has a list of interactions to the right of your video and markers in the player bar to show where the interactions are.

Nearpod is a platform with real-time insights into student understanding through interactive lessons, interactive videos, gamified learning, formative assessment, and activities.

Nearpod is focused on creating online lessons for elementary and secondary schools based on (interactive) slides. Slides can also be videos.

You can upload your own videos or existing videos from YouTube or BBC Worldwide. You can also use Nearpod's template lessons and upload your own mp4s. Interactions are limited to open and multi-per-choice questions that you add to the timeline of the video.

The strengths of Nearpod are the possibility to make interactive lessons. Interactive videos can be included in the slides of an interactive lesson or be used as a stand-alone test/exam. If you are focussed on only interactive video Nearpod is very limited in its use.

Playfilm is a Spanish-language interactive video platform. The focus of the platform is marketing and lead creation. Playfilm facilitates the creation of interactive video ads for use on social media. They use your social media stories, for example, to post a link to the interactive video.

From the examples on their webpage, it seems that they mostly use question interactions with background video footage. They have a platform where you can create your own interactive video, but for now, it's only open to a selection of companies. We haven't been able to test it ourselves.

PlayPosit offers an online learning environment with an interactive video tool in which teachers can make videos interactive with time-embedded activities. You can add images, equations, audio, and more.

While you can add multiple interactive features they do not layer over the video itself, but open up in a sidebar. The interactive features will by default pause the video. It is, however, possible to turn that option off in the advanced setting of chosen interaction.

Playposit has an extended free version. The paid version has extra features such as templates. With a paid subscription it is possible, for example, to work on projects with multiple people and to connect the Playposit videos to an LMS. This makes Playposit excellent for educational purposes.

Since August 16th 2022,  Playposit has been acquired by WeVideo. To this date, 17-05-2023, it's still possible to go to Playposits own website and log into the platform there.

Interactive video company Rapt Media, that is a part of Kaltura, offers a cloud-based platform to create interactive videos for which you can just drag and drop the content into the video. With this interactive video software, you can also track which paths your viewers take within your video.

Since its acquisition by Kaltura in 2018, Rapt Media's website has remained unchanged. It seems that Rapt Media's interactive video technology is fully integrated into Kaltura and no longer developed independently. If you want to work with Rapt Media, you have to work with Kaltura. Therefore, not much value should be attached to the number of employees on LinkedIn.

    Interactions are neatly designed and easy to add. Like being able to give a button on hover a different status. In addition, you can build templates and copy layers from one video to another.

You can also work out your script in the software and they also have a tool to convert your branched video into interactive YouTube content.

          Vidversity offers several tools. On the one hand, an authoring tool that allows you to create video learning. These are actually video slides interspersed with questions, etc. The interaction is not really in the video but more as separate slides. They also offer a tool called Benchmark that allows instructors to have students create video within an LMS. For example, to demonstrate mastery of a particular skill. Here students can add their own text interactions. Just like hihaho, you can also outsource the production to Vidversity.

          Wirewax (part of Vimeo since 2021) is an interactive video platform that is driven by artificial intelligence technology that recognizes people and objects, which you can then tag and make a (clickable) hotspot for your viewers. You can also add more if needed, both moving and static. These hotspots can display further information, add an item to the viewer’s wishlist, and more via their interactive video player. To be honest, Wirewax is a wonderful platform for creating interactive video.

          However, the pricing of Wirewax is very high compared to hihaho. For many purposes, you can create similar interactive videos with Hihaho while our prices are much lower.

          We weren't able to get a trial account, but their sample videos give us the impression that Vudoo's focus is on shoppable videos. You can open beautiful popups within a video and then highlight a product and add a link to a website. We couldn't find the options to create menus or ask questions in the example videos. Vudoo has not provided pricing details yet.

          Main industry: Business

          With the interactive video platform Wootag, you can let your viewers shop within your interactive video. You can have your viewers fill out a form for their contact information, vital feedback or reviews, and even user polls. In addition, they can buy the products directly from the video.

          This all happens in a tag Wootag creates for your video. There are different tags that you can add to the video. You are not limited to adding just one tag, it can be multiple. However, that is also the only thing Wootag does.

          Wootag focuses on adding interactive tags to your timeline. Every tag activates an interactive element, but this also means it doesn't give you the full reigns. It's limited to only your timeline and you can only choose tags that are available to you at that moment.

          EDpuzzle

          Founded: 2013

          Edpuzzle is aimed at teachers. Via Edpuzzle you can add interactions and voice-over to existing YouTube videos or you can upload your own video. The interaction list is minimal. Only two types of questions and notes are on the list of interactions you can add. In the notes, there is the possibility to add a hyperlink.

          The interactions are added to the timeline and will show up in a sidebar when the video arrives at that particular timestamp. The teacher can send the finalized video to their students and view the results.  You can, however, upload a video or use a video from another teacher.

          Edpuzzles interactivity is minimal yet effective. If you, however, need more interactivity in your video then hihaho might be the better option for you.

          H5P

          Founded: 2013

          H5P is part of Joubel, a Norwegian company which offers a spectrum of features to enrich learning content. Interactive video is one of many possibilities. H5P interactions include several question types to drag-and-drop text. In addition, you can make your questions adaptive for when you want people that answered incorrectly to rewatch certain information.

          The software is developed open-source and and offered with freemium business model. That means you may download it for free from h5p.org and install it on your own server. You can also purchase H5P via h5p.com as a SaaS solution. In that case you don't have to install the software on your own server. The open-source business model enables organizations to make content interactive with a small budget. That's why H5P is excellent for people in education who are technically savvy.

          We can conclude that H5P has a wider range of offerings to make content interactive. H5P is great for handmade e-learning content in a broad sense. When it comes to interactive video, the possibilities with hihaho are much greater. The hihaho platform has more features and is much more advanced. Integration options of hihaho are more advanced as it is fully API based. It is also possible to automate interactive video production with hihaho. Therefore we suggest that hihaho is better suited for i.e. public education and corporate learning.

          Luma1

          Founded: 2017

          Luma1 is an interactive video platform for producing, managing, and delivering modern content for learning, selling, and marketing. The Luma1 platform brings video interactivity and data together with video to drive results for business. Luma1 and hihaho are platforms that both have many technical features and are free to try out. One distinction between the two platforms is that hihaho has advanced layering technology and, in our opinion, is easier to use. In addition, hihaho allows you to pay per video. To publish an interactive video at Luma1 you need to purchase a yearly subscription.

          Mindstamp is an all-around tool to add interactions to a video. It especially has many fun question types that are suitable for sales and marketing. You can have someone set a date in the video for example or have your own video recorded as an answer to a question. Mindstamp has fewer publishing options than hihaho and does not work based on a timeline like hihaho, but has a list of interactions to the right of your video and markers in the player bar to show where the interactions are.

          Founded: 2012

          Nearpod is a platform with real-time insights into student understanding through interactive lessons, interactive videos, gamified learning, formative assessment, and activities.

          Nearpod is focused on creating online lessons for elementary and secondary schools based on (interactive) slides. Slides can also be videos.

          You can upload your own videos or existing videos from YouTube or BBC Worldwide. You can also use Nearpod's template lessons and upload your own mp4s. Interactions are limited to open and multi-per-choice questions that you add to the timeline of the video.

          The strengths of Nearpod are the possibility to make interactive lessons. Interactive videos can be included in the slides of an interactive lesson or be used as a stand-alone test/exam. If you are focussed on only interactive video Nearpod is very limited in its use.

          PlayFilm

          Founded: 2014

          Playfilm is a Spanish-language interactive video platform. The focus of the platform is marketing and lead creation. Playfilm facilitates the creation of interactive video ads for use on social media. They use your social media stories, for example, to post a link to the interactive video.

          From the examples on their webpage, it seems that they mostly use question interactions with background video footage. They have a platform where you can create your own interactive video, but for now, it's only open to a selection of companies. We haven't been able to test it ourselves.

          Playposit

          Founded: 2012

          PlayPosit offers an online learning environment with an interactive video tool in which teachers can make videos interactive with time-embedded activities. You can add images, equations, audio, and more.

          While you can add multiple interactive features they do not layer over the video itself, but open up in a sidebar. The interactive features will by default pause the video. It is, however, possible to turn that option off in the advanced setting of chosen interaction.

          Playposit has an extended free version. The paid version has extra features such as templates. With a paid subscription it is possible, for example, to work on projects with multiple people and to connect the Playposit videos to an LMS. This makes Playposit excellent for educational purposes.

          Since August 16th 2022,  Playposit has been acquired by WeVideo. To this date, 17-05-2023, it's still possible to go to Playposits own website and log into the platform there.

          Rapt Media

          Founded: 2011

          Interactive video company Rapt Media, that is a part of Kaltura, offers a cloud-based platform to create interactive videos for which you can just drag and drop the content into the video. With this interactive video software, you can also track which paths your viewers take within your video.

          Since its acquisition by Kaltura in 2018, Rapt Media's website has remained unchanged. It seems that Rapt Media's interactive video technology is fully integrated into Kaltura and no longer developed independently. If you want to work with Rapt Media, you have to work with Kaltura. Therefore, not much value should be attached to the number of employees on LinkedIn.

            Interactions are neatly designed and easy to add. Like being able to give a button on hover a different status. In addition, you can build templates and copy layers from one video to another.

            Stornaway is a tool to make interactive branched videos yourself. Just like Rapt, this works on the basis of fragments and choices that you link together in a flowchart. The result is a video where the viewer chooses where they want to go in the story. Stornaway offers everything to make your branched scenarios as good and creative as possible. You can also work out your script in the software and they also have a tool to convert your branched video into interactive YouTube content.

                  With Vidversity’s interactive video tool, you can turn your lectures into interactive learning courses. You can add questions, resources, and also notes to the video. Record videos in the app or upload them yourself.

                  Vidversity offers several tools. On the one hand, an authoring tool that allows you to create video learning. These are actually video slides interspersed with questions, etc. The interaction is not really in the video but more as separate slides. They also offer a tool called Benchmark that allows instructors to have students create video within an LMS. For example, to demonstrate mastery of a particular skill. Here students can add their own text interactions. Just like hihaho, you can also outsource the production to Vidversity.

                  Founded: 2009

                  Wirewax (part of Vimeo since 2021) is an interactive video platform that is driven by artificial intelligence technology that recognizes people and objects, which you can then tag and make a (clickable) hotspot for your viewers. You can also add more if needed, both moving and static. These hotspots can display further information, add an item to the viewer’s wishlist, and more via their interactive video player. To be honest, Wirewax is a wonderful platform for creating interactive video.

                  However, the pricing of Wirewax is very high compared to hihaho. For many purposes, you can create similar interactive videos with Hihaho while our prices are much lower.

                  We weren't able to get a trial account, but their sample videos give us the impression that Vudoo's focus is on shoppable videos. You can open beautiful popups within a video and then highlight a product and add a link to a website. We couldn't find the options to create menus or ask questions in the example videos. Vudoo has not provided pricing details yet.

                  Wootag

                  Founded: 2014

                  With the interactive video platform Wootag, you can let your viewers shop within your interactive video. You can have your viewers fill out a form for their contact information, vital feedback or reviews, and even user polls. In addition, they can buy the products directly from the video.

                  This all happens in a tag Wootag creates for your video. There are different tags that you can add to the video. You are not limited to adding just one tag, it can be multiple. However, that is also the only thing Wootag does.

                  Wootag focuses on adding interactive tags to your timeline. Every tag activates an interactive element, but this also means it doesn't give you the full reigns. It's limited to only your timeline and you can only choose tags that are available to you at that moment.
