Now Creators Take Charge Using Bunny Stream with Patreon

Posted by:

With over 8 million monthly active members and $3.5 billion paid out to content creators since 2013, it's safe to say Patreon is doing something right to support the creative community.

Now, if you're unfamiliar with Patreon, it is a virtual space content creators use to connect intimately with their subscribers by offering exclusive content, behind-the-scenes insights, and personalized tutorials not possible with legacy solutions today.

Creators love Patreon for its customizable platform equipped with specialized tools that facilitate audience engagement and monetization through various subscription models. Subscribers love the opportunity to interact directly with creators and access exclusive content unavailable elsewhere.

Putting an end to “video unavailable” and licensing problems

Patreon offers flexibility when it comes to uploading content from different sources, including direct video uploads via URL, from YouTube, or uploads from Vimeo for Premium or Pro creators. And, because most creators on Patreon focus on just creating the best exclusive content for their subs and not the technicalities of building their own video hosting platform, they opt to use YouTube or Vimeo, which sounds like a no-brainer.

But hold your carrots, and let's talk about the fine print, including the dreaded "video unavailable" message. We know how frustrating it is to get this message after working hard for several weeks or even months because you got an audio license violation.

YouTube, for example, comes with its own set of inconveniences. Sure, it's a massive platform with the most amount of eyeballs, but if not done correctly you can get intrusive ads disrupting your user’s quality of experience. And, not to mention their ever-changing content policies, which seem to become stricter and stricter every time you turn around. Then there's Vimeo, with its storage limitations and premium feature paywalls.

Until now, content creators on Patreon have lacked good video hosting service options to control their content. This turns into platform dependency, putting the creator's valuable business at risk. One wrong move and their content could vanish into a rabbit hole.

Luckily, we’ve found the solution.

Introducing Bunny Stream integration with Patreon!

With Bunny Stream, you're in the driver's seat, so you can fully own your content and say goodbye to the hassle of using the traditional video hosting platforms Vimeo or YouTube. This was possible thanks to our integration support for Player.js and because we also became an official embed.ly provider.

The best part: Bunny Stream is easy to use! You upload your masterpiece, and we process your video, including free and customizable adaptive bitrate transcoding up to 4K, along with transcription, translation, watermark, content tagging, and much, much more. On top of all that, our pre-integrated embed player facilitates integration, eliminating the need for technical expertise when looking to expand to other web platforms and services.

How do you actually upload the video in Patreon? You copy and paste your Direct Play URL, located in your Bunny Stream dashboard after we process your videos, into Patreon via the Embed video URL option, and voilà — you're good to go!

Now, let's talk about the other benefits of Bunny Stream:
