Orowa – Storage for Private Videos

Video hosting platforms like YouTube serve as great tools for people looking to share videos publicly, however the privacy options on these web-based platforms leave a lot to be desired. Orowa is a video hosting service that fills the niche left by more public options, providing users with a confidential way to post their videos the web.

Upload your videos to Orowa just like you would any other cloud-based video-hosting platform. The difference with Orowa isn’t how you upload content, it’s what happens to that content once it’s in the cloud. Control who has access to your videos by making certain files more or less confidential than others. In addition to controlling who can view the videos you’ve uploaded, you can also control who can contribute videos to your company’s Orowa account. Only people who have specifically invited will be able to access the videos you post.

Orowa videos are viewable across all devices, including desktops, smartphones, and tablets. The web-based platform is an ideal solution for companies looking for better ways to post confidential videos—like training videos, onboarding videos, and company updates—for internal use. Orowa’s platform works quickly and supports high quality videos.

Practical Uses:

  • Privately share videos with clients
  • Upload training videos online
  • Share company updates with employees through video
  • Create libraries of company training videos

Insider Tips:
