    Our nonprofit organization teaches public speaking. We seek a video forum where students and the instructor can upload lectures, speeches and presentations. We want the ability to “comment at certain points” in the videos for instructional purposes. Is anyone aware of a forum that would suit our purposes or where to find the technology to allow us to do this online?

    Hi MJ, Thank you for your comment,

    Most if not all video sharing platforms allow for sharing and comments.

    For posting on “comments at certain points” of the video, you can do this on YouTube. This is called annotations

    If anyone knows of any other video sharing platform with annotation ability please leave your comments below.

    I work for an Education company and YouTube is not the best hosting service as many schools have it blocked. I am looking for a video service that wouldn’t be blocked inside of schools. Any ideas?

      We often recommend Vimeo and that the school’s network administrator puts this in the exception list to unblock it. To make it even more secure, pay for premium service that allows you to only stream the videos from the school’s domain or your blog. This lets you share your videos only from the domain you specify. With Vimeo, premium or standard, there are no adverts or distractions and keeping the video streams available only from your own domain makes it that bit more focused and ‘clean’.

    Your article is great but I love free unlimited video hosting sites without ads or spam.
