Today Epoxy is excited to announce that we have surpassed five billion monthly YouTube views! This massive amount of YouTube views flowing through Epoxy results from the thousands of individual creators and over 60 multi-channel networks (MCNs) using the software-as-a-service (SaaS) to operate their multi-platform video businesses. Epoxy’s all-in-one toolkit allows video creators to quickly and easily edit and distribute the right short-form video assets and engage influential fans across platforms like YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vine and beyond.
“Since coming out of beta in 2014 we’ve grown rapidly and reached a scale where Epoxy is really feeling the pulse of the online video market,” said Epoxy CEO Juan Bruce. “Video publishing has become a dynamic multi-platform business. The last year has demonstrated that while YouTube is still a dominant force, we are increasingly seeing video creators, networks need to operate across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vine and emerging OTT and VOD platforms.”
With our launch in May 2014, Epoxy became the first company to help video creators manage their content and presence across YouTube and social media. Since then, the company has gained wide adoption by the largest and most innovative MCNs. Epoxy, which leverages proprietary cloud editing, distribution, engagement and analytics technology across YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, Vine and Facebook, is also used by some of the biggest social stars and content creators of short-form video in the world — such as Dude Perfect, Peter Hollens and thousands more.
“As new platforms emerge and fragmentation grows in the online video ecosystem the challenge becomes finding a technical solution that allows publishers to quickly and easily deliver content that performs to each destination” said Epoxy CPO Jason Ahmad. “As the online video world grows and encompasses more platforms and devices, we are dedicated to making Epoxy the industry standard for cross-platform publishing and operations.”
YouTubers, Viners and video creators of all types love Epoxy because they live a multi-platform life where social media is intertwined with video publishing. Favorite features driving Epoxy’s growth include:
