VidCaster is an online video platform — but unlike complicated “player only” platforms, VidCaster gives non-technical users the power to very easily create complete video websites. In the same way that companies use platforms like WordPress and Tumblr to power their blogs, companies like AirbnbZendesk, and Turnstone Furniture are using VidCaster to power their own branded video websites.
