KEY QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
ABOUT POSTING VIDEOS ON YOUR CHURCH WEBSITE
“WHY SHOULD WE SHARE VIDEOS on our Church Website?”
Every church has the potential to reach a much, much broader audience by spreading the Word of God using today’s universal venue – online video.
Videos on your church web page make it come alive and e-x-t-e-n-d the reach of your message. Posting new videos regularly keeps visitors returning to see what’s new.
Posting videos helps build connection and fellowship among your congregation. Those unable to attend church can still be connected and part of the group. And easy online access to your church videos helps VISITORS AND NEW MEMBERS get involved.
EXAMPLE: This screen shot of a real client’s web page using EZWebPlayer was taken right after the State of Washington enacted restrictions during the Corona virus crises. Livestreaming became an even more integral part of this church’s membership during this time.
“WHAT VIDEOS can be Viewed on our Web Site?”
Post your live services and then archive them quickly for viewing. Shoot your own sermons, choir, church events, youth groups, special services, more.
These days, with video technology in easy reach, do-it-yourself videos are not rocket science. Many churches – big and small – are shooting their own videos and posting them on their websites. Virtually all public services are now being presented via livestream. Surely there’s someone in your congregation who’d like nothing better than to shoot videos and manage your church’s video programming.

“WHY NOT Post our Church Videos on Facebook?”
Facebook exists to make money for online companies. It’s NOT set up to serve faith organizations. Here’s why…
If you post your church videos to Facebook, folks go to your website to watch your videos. They click one of your videos and are routed to the Facebook platform where they’re REQUIRED to login. Once logged in on Facebook, it’s easy for them to be distracted by friends’ posts…and it’s HARD for them to get back to your website. Facebook makes it easy to be distracted.
“WHAT’S WRONG with Posting our Church Videos to YouTube?”
YouTube has a dark side. It gives you no control of your videos and can lead your viewers into very dark territory.
YouTube hosts videos of anything and everything, uploaded by anyone, anywhere. Many videos contain very disturbing, uncensored images and content. Your congregation can search for your video but, after it plays, you have no control over what plays next. Once on the YouTube platform, they’ve left your website and are now on the YouTube platform where they can easily get lost among thousands of videos with unknown content. Or possibly worse are all of the distracting religious videos that are off topic but still somehow “religious”. This can cast a bad light on your church’s reputation.
“OK, THEN, WHAT IS EZWebPlayer?”
Think of EZWebPlayer as your church’s own private, online TV channel. It’s the simple, affordable, and professional way for faith organizations to play and manage video on their websites. EZWebPlayer is your dedicated online video platform and player. It hosts your videos, catalogs and archives them, and plays them back with A+ fidelity and ease. It’s easy to manage, even for those new to online video. It’s easy for your viewers to watch your videos on any device – iOS, Android, and multiple browser environments, Google, Safari, Explorer, Edge, more.
The videos that you can keep in your account are unlimited. Easy to keep track, easy to title and describe, easy to manage.
“SO, EZWebPlayer GIVES ME CONTROL Over my Video Programming?”
Yes, you’re in total control. It’s like having your own TV channel that shows only your programming – your videos, your livestreams and your promos. And your player (the on-screen rectangle your video appears in) even bears your “brand” – your church’s name.
“WHY IS EZWebPlayer DIFFERENT AND BETTER Than Social Media Video Players?”
Social media video players are designed to make money for the companies that developed them. EZWebPlayer is YOUR video player, designed to give you and your viewers excellent, seamless video hosting, sharing, and playback. EZWebPlayer serves you and your members and guests. No one else. And, your videos can be as public or as private as you wish.
So, use Facebook and YouTube the smart way, making use of their huge audiences—post short teaser articles or even super short 10-30 second videos that link to your web site.
It’s just as easy as that.
“WHY IS EZWebPlayer DIFFERENT AND BETTER Than Other Quality Players?”
There are other excellent video players out there. Searches reveal EZWebPlayer ranks among the highest in terms of features and service. And it ranks LOWEST in price among best quality platforms.
And with a FREE TRIAL and SPECIAL OFFER for faith organizations, it is an excellent, no-risk choice.

“HOW MUCH does EZWebPlayer cost?”
EZWebPlayer is subscription-based. There are three service levels at different per-month costs. The service level most appropriate for many faith organizations is the White Label level which gives you live streaming and video-on-demand under your church branding. White Label is $55-$95 a month. The non-branded account level is Pro at $15 a month.
“DO YOU OFFER A SPECIAL RATE For Faith Organizations?”
Yes, we do. For a limited time, we are offering churches and other Faith Groups a free 30 days if they sign up for a year. But, you can cancel any month. Yes, this might sound counter productive, but what it does is help you get the best rate, the annual rate, which carries a 10% discount over the monthly price. So, if you stay with it, you are already plugged into the best pay plan, plus you get one month free. If you cancel, we refund the balance of your standard year, no questions asked, and we do it the same day you communicate to us the cancellation—no “administrative waiting period” like some.
