Streamio provides different streaming plans in order to cater to different audiences. All our pricing is based on the amounts of videos stored on the platform combined with the amount of content, either through video, audio, or live streams, that is sent out, sometimes called viewing hours. We don’t charge for hard-to-understand-and-predict metrics such as to request. We don’t charge extra for encoding of movies on the platform (or re-encoding when needs change). And we do provide support if you are stuck. For developers, we have free APIs if you want to integrate our functionality into other platforms.
Stream to the world!
Another thing that differs between many providers is that we have a true worldwide CDN, which means that we can distribute videos all over the world. Quite often our competitors limit their streaming plans (no presence in Africa or South America is quite common) or by pricing different regions differently. Or, even worse, they don’t use a CDN – relying on distribution from their servers only.
Our Test accounts differ from the other accounts in a few ways: It’s free to use, it adds the Streamio logo as a watermark to videos distributed and it requires monthly renewal (don’t fear, we will remind you!) – you can at any time upgrade to our paid plans to lift the watermark and renewal requirement. Of course will your content and settings still be in Streamio when you choose to upgrade your account.
If you are new to our service: Start a test account now and try it out! Even the API is available for developers wanting to develop video integrations! If it does what you need, either stay here or upgrade to our paid plans! We will remind you when you need to renew.
Paid plans are priced after a commitment of usage. Our prices are low. In fact, they are really low if you take into account the transfer and storage included, free encoding of videos, and worldwide distribution! If you use more transfers that you have committed to you will have to pay an overage fee. You will get a mail as soon as you hit this mark (and you can keep an eye on the usage yourself on the Streamio Dashboard). Over usage (overage) is more expensive than monthly commit – so if you expect the traffic level to continue at this level you should consider upgrading your account to get more transfers.
Standard, Premium, Enterprise and Pro accounts
The difference between these streaming plans is the capacity of your video storage and your included traffic packages. All our streaming plans have full access to Streamios wonderful features and are all full-blown Online Video Platforms.
Start with our free test account that offers a healthy 5 GB of storage and 25 GB of traffic each month. With the test account you can familiaries yourself with our plattform as a new customer. For our existing customers who want to experiment we also recommend to use a test account.
The standard and premium packages with 250/250 GB and 500/500 GB storage and transfer respectively work fine for the vast majority of users.
Our Enterprise package is for larger organizations who need more storage and traffic, but especially could use the benefit of 3 seperate accounts within the one package. This is most often used to have a dedicated account for internal video storage and management, secured through IP-access. And the other two accounts are often used for marketing purposes.
The largest Streamio package, PRO, is designed for professional video producers who work with several clients and manages all of their video content. It includes a generous 5 TB of storage and traffic as well as 10 streamio accounts and 3 Rackfish Live accounts. Rackfish is the company behind the video plattform Streamio, and are experts in hosting and advanced video delivery. With a Rackfish Live account you can stream large events towards a global audience, like concerts with low latency.
Custom streaming plans
For users or events that require extra capabilities or need to be heavily supported by our technical team, it’s good to know that our parent company, Rackfish, has over 25 years of experience in hosting and over 15 years of experience with video delivery. If non of the Streamio packages are the right one for you we can tailor a solution for your special needs. Some clients use huge amounts of storage for a video archive, but not much bandwidth for example. In that case, we can provide a solution that fits perfectly.
Check out our streaming packages! You can also find streaming under Account Settings – Subscription plan when logged into Streamio.
