Introducing a Free and Unlimited plan, Enhanced Paid plans, Unique Real-Time Stats for all platforms, and more.
Today we’re announcing a major update to SublimeVideo:
New, Free and Unlimited SublimeVideo HTML5 Video Player
We’re thrilled to introduce a new, free and unlimited version of SublimeVideo.
After the commercial launch of SublimeVideo earlier this year, and alongside today’s introduction of great, cloud-powered new features, we’re ready to shift gear and introduce something radical that we’ve wanted to do for a while: Give anyone a free, traffic unlimited, no-compromise version of SublimeVideo Player.
Contributing to the web’s transition to HTML5 Video
We started SublimeVideo last year because we wanted to turn the promises of HTML5 Video into a reality – to make web video simpler and more enjoyable for everybody.
Adobe’s recent decision to stop development of Mobile Flash and fully embrace HTML5 is a clear signal that HTML5 is now mandatory for all sites.
SublimeVideo already provides any website with a fast, reliable and pain-free way to migrate from Flash to HTML5 Video. The new, free plan now makes it accessible to anyone. We’re really happy to be able to do this; we see it as our contribution to a better and more modern Web.
Enhanced Paid Plans
In addition to our new free plan, we’re also introducing enhanced paid plans with amazing new Real-Time Stats (more details below) and far larger monthly viewing allowances!
Not only do we now give you many more views, but we’ve also switched the metric used to measure your player views from Video Pageviews (counted every time the page containing your video loads) to Video Plays (counted only when playback of your video starts).
The new Plus plan is available for $9.90 per site/month and $99 per site/year, and replaces the Comet plan. The new Premium plan is available for $49.90 per site/month and $499 per site/year, and replaces the Planet, Star and Galaxy Plans.
Existing customers: Don’t worry! Your plans have automatically been upgraded to our new, enhanced offerings. Visit this page for more details on how you’ve been updated.
Universal, Real-Time Stats
Today, we’re also introducing a great new feature to our paid plans: Universal, Real-Time Statistics for any platform!
We think our new stats platform is quite unique: As far as we know it’s the world’s first to offer a truly comprehensive, real-time picture of your site’s video traffic, whether generated from mobile or desktop, HTML5 or Flash.
Our Real-Time Statistics platform leverages the power of SublimeVideo’s cloud-based technology and lays the foundations for even more great new features to come. Please let us know what you think and what you’d like to see next in our new Community Forum.
Users of our new, free plan also have access to stats for the past 24 hours, and can easily upgrade to our paid plans offering real-time stats and longer data retention (with yearly or unlimited stats storage).
HD Switching, Video Embeds and Community Forum
We’ve also added two important features to our player, which we ensured work perfectly in HTML5: HD Switching and Video Embeds.
You can now switch SD-HD video sources with a single click using the HD switch built straight into the player’s UI. To the end user it may just look like an ordinary HD switch, but we took great care to implement it properly so that it fully complies with the HTML5 standard.
The addition of our free plan and larger monthly viewing allowances to our paid plans means that we can now offer SublimeVideo embeds, allowing your audience to easily embed your videos into their own sites or around the web.

Last but not least, we’re launching a new Community Forum on GetSatisfaction which you can use to report bugs, share your ideas and ask us questions. Sign up for SublimeVideo to join the community today and let us know what you’d like to see next!
We hope you’ll enjoy the new SublimeVideo as much as we do! A big thank you to our customers for their continued support …and welcome to our new users!
