The new year is a perfect time for fresh starts, and we’re starting 2023 with the freshest of the fresh. We’re excited to debut a new monthly series that serves up a quick overview of all that’s new in Wistia. From new features to product updates, it’s the perfect way to stay informed and ensure you never miss a thing. Let’s dive in and explore the latest updates together, shall we?

Wistia + Zoom Integration

It’s never been easier to bring your Zoom cloud recordings into Wistia. With the new Zoom integration, you can automatically (or manually) import recordings right into Wistia. Once they’re in your Wistia account, it’s easy to edit your videos, add chapters, passwords, CTAs, and more!

A New Way to Browse Your Media

We’ve been tidying up the way content is organized in Wistia. From the content library, you’ll notice that you can browse your Favorites, Projects, Channels, or see all of your Media. This lets you browse everything, regardless of the channel or project it might be associated with.

Add Tags to Keep Things Organized

Add tags to your videos to keep things neat and tidy. Search and filter by tags to quickly find what you’re looking for later.

Archive What You’re Not Using

In case you missed it, you can now archive media you’re not using. This is a great way to keep things organized and free up some space in your account. Archived media won’t count toward your media limit since it can’t be embedded or shared.

A New View in Projects

If you’re poking around in Projects, you might have noticed a new view. The new grid view offers larger thumbnails and lets you explore the contents of each video as you hover over them. It’s a great way to quickly find what you’re looking for — especially if your project has a ton of videos.

See Where Your Video is Embedded Before You Delete It

Ready to delete a video but can’t remember if it’s still embedded somewhere? Don’t worry, we’ve got your back. We’ll let you know if a video is still embedded somewhere and actively getting views before you delete it.

Stitch Videos Together in Wistia

With the latest updates to video editing in Wistia, you can now stitch together multiple clips in your timeline. Easily add a branded bumper to the end of your webinar recording or a personalized intro to kick off what would otherwise be a canned demo video.

Brand Your Videos With a Custom Watermark

Now you can add a watermark to your videos with custom branding. Choose a logo, or whatever you’d like! It will appear in the corner of your video as it plays. You can even hyperlink your logo to drive your audience to a desired page.

Preview Your Media Page

Easily preview your media page to see how it’ll appear to everyone you share it with. Just hit the new Preview Media Page button above your media and see how it appears for your audience.

That’s a wrap for January product updates!

And that’s a wrap! We hope this month’s updates have left you feeling like a kid in a candy store, ready to dive back into your Wistia account and create some sweet, sweet videos. Don’t worry, we’ll be back next month with even more updates to keep the good times rolling. Happy video making!
