Do we have to worry about Wistia videos being blocked like videos from other hosting services?

Other providers like YouTube and Vimeo can be blocked by offices, schools, etc because the videos hosted on those platforms includes “entertainment” content. Our customer’s focus is on business/marketing video, and because of this Wistia is rarely blocklisted.

In situations where all video content is blocked, regardless of source, allowlisting the following domains will ensure your Wistia content comes through:

  • *.wistia.com
  • fast.wistia.net
  • embed-fastly.wistia.com
  • embedwistia-a.akamaihd.net
Note
You can use Domain Restrictions to prevent a viewer from copying your video embed codes and pasting them on their domain. When domain restriction is set up, the videos in your account will only display on the domains you specify. Click Here to learn how to add Domain Restrictions to your account!
