Johnny RyanWe at the Irish Council for Civil Liberties rely on FV Player to let visitors to iccl.ie view ultra high quality video of our work on privacy without fear that they are being tracked by Big Tech.
Taco FleurThe FV Player Pro has played a significant role in being able to present private videos to our online students across the world. We looked into many other video hosting solutions which all turned out to be way too expensive for what we got in return. The FV Player Pro is easy to set up and maintain. I highly recommend this product to anyone that wants to host and display their own videos.
Patrick BuggyWe’ve been using FV Player from the beginning. The decision-making that led us directly to FV Player was that we knew we wanted it quickly, knowing it is rock-reliable, and half-way there for us to start serving video to people. Given that videos are the cardinal way people interact with us, it is significant that FV Player works reliably and well with our brand design. These are the two most important requirements which we can achieve thanks to FV Player.
Justin ReclaThank you! Best customer service I have ever received. This saved me a nightmare of time trying to figure this out on my own with my limited programming experience. Thank you again! I will reach out again with another custom support ticket if the occasion should occur.
Joseph WoodWhen I was first shopping around, I’ve e-mailed the Foliovision team and had a 2 or 3 day conversation about the FV Player. The team was very good at explaining everything. That was very comforting. We use FV Player with our Amazon CloudFront. Initially, just getting it set up with Amazon Cloud there was a small issue we had, but your director Alec Kinnear has helped us to solve it. Now, with FV Player our content is secured and under control. Thank you!
Matthew QuineI was searching for HTML5 players browsing through lots of forums and websites and trying to find something that would be able to show different storage solutions but has a consistent look. I’ve found FV Player’s integration with Vimeo and the back end system amazing. We still have some videos on a custom server based on S3 – FV Player was able to deal with AWS, YouTube, Vimeo, pretty much anything.
Michael CheichI didn’t come across FV Player immediately and when I saw the other video services I thought that maybe I couldn’t afford this. I love Vimeo and I can’t just go away from Vimeo and I embedding videos with other services often wasn’t easy nor was it necessarily WordPress friendly. I’m so glad that I’ve found the extremely well-priced FV Player! Once I’ve found it, I was like – this is my choice. I’ve been using FV Player now for two or three years.
Will DoggettI searched and searched for a good video plugin for video. FV Player has been the perfect solution. For the ability to save your viewing location, set pre-post roll and so many other solutions… It’s the most powerful video plugin I’ve found for WordPress. On top of that I needed help to integrate into my setup using Elementor and Advanced Custom Fields. I signed up for their Pro support option and within hours got an answer back and a custom solution. They went above and beyond to help me get up and running!
Rob SchwartzI was reading a bunch of articles comparing your player to different ones. I’ve tried two or three plugins before FV Player that but none of them really worked until I met you guys. I feel like I didn’t launch the company until we had Foliovision in place. The FV Player definitely helped financially, because once people were able not to steal the videos it obviously helped the bottom line. Without a doubt it was a game changer in terms of that. Without a doubt the ease of the interface and uploading videos with FV Player is the reason I’m now very reluctant to switch. When all comes down to it at the end of the day, the security features in your player work really well and have very consistent performance and I can use AWS or Vimeo which are the two solutions I prefer. That’s all that ultimately matters – that we can work around everything else. Giving the video in consistently and secure was important. You at Foliovision know how to do all that.

Using Flash Player on our old custom made website used to take up so much our time with people having problems with a video not working properly. After switching to WordPress, video has become such a central part of our business and with Foliovision it’s all taken care of. FV Player works. That is what gives us the time to focus on creating content now that the video player is just going to handle whatever we throw at it. To be honest, with Foliovision it has been so easy that the video player on our site isn’t something we need to think about anymore – that’s the greatest compliment that we could give it.
Blake RoyerOver the last month or so, both of us have scratched our heads figuring out how to move our blog from Typepad to WordPress, and in the process redesign the site. After a lot of research, tinkering, and a huge helping hand from a company called Foliovision who helped us with the transfer, we’re now safe in our new, WordPress-hosted home. Biggest thanks to Alec, Martin, and everyone over at Foliovision.
Alec is one of the most creative people I have ever met.
He is an expert in on-line marketing. Alec’s unparelled knowledge of the web has had a direct impact on my firms profitability. Alec is also very trustworthy and reliable and he and his firm deliver top line results.
Foliovision is really a client oriented company. For everyday stuff, the communication works very well. If I’m really stuck on something you really help me right away. Your instructions are always easy to follow. Any time I ask for a change or find a small problem, I just mention it and it is immediately fixed.
Alec and Peter were able to take our specifications and blend them with a responsive communication system, meeting the needs of our timeline. Foliovision is definitely one of the top level companies in the internet technology environment today and is a pleasure to work with.

I was looking for help with transferring my site from Typepad to Wordpress. During my search I found a Foliovision blog post about how to move from Typepad to Wordpress and contacted them about some help moving my site. The whole design process came along after that and it was absolutely wonderful. I love the work that you guys did.
You did everything what we needed to be done and provided extra support when we needed it. That was great. I would especially like to mention Martin, he was amazing. Always fast and always responded to me within 24 hours or less.
Even as a freelancer, your Typepad to Wordpress service is definitely worth the investment. For people who have a business, it is a clear choice. I spent a lot of time debating whether I will pay for help with the move. Typepad doesn’t make it easy to move everything over, and your service was flawless so it was a worthy choice!
I recommend you to colleagues regularly. I had a great experience. Overall I am pleased with everything. This is very good when you are dealing with an online company and you guys should be really proud.
When Network Solutions destroyed my weblog (1.5 million words, years of work), were it not for a backup at Foliovision, I would have lost the whole thing. Foliovision quickly put my site back together. Foliovision has earned my undying gratitude. Highly recommended for anyone thinking of making the transition from TypePad to WordPress.
I owe a HUGE THANK YOU to the folks at Foliovision. Alec Kinnear and his team were unbelievably fabulous from the very start. They were always responsive, incredibly patient with all of my questions, and did a great job of soothing my fears…The process couldn’t have happened more smoothly and I couldn’t be more happy with their work. They even sent me a shirt as a thank you! I still can’t believe they did what they did for the price that they charged me.
Last summer I transitioned CafeHayek.com from Typepad to WordPress with the help of a great little company called Foliovision. Their service turns the otherwise difficult process of leaving SixApart’s Typepad into a relatively painless one.
When I have tech issues with the blog or changes/enhancements I get immediate service. That was never the case with TP and the only thing ever resolved was when the blog was down hard or messed up in other ways. No suggested improvements ever got implemented. Now I can just have my own improvements done the way I want them when I want them.
I can say without hesitation that on balance, Alec & Martin are among the best professionals I have ever worked with.
We contacted Foliovision because you had very specific knowledge of the conversion process from Typepad to Wordpress, and I didn’t want to do it myself. Our goal was to move our platform from Typepad to Wordpress, getting that data moved without much hassle and the work done by Foliovision certainly contributed to doing that in a timely manner. It definitely saved time, as far as the time it would have required me to do it, therefore allowing us to get to Wordpress sooner.
I contacted Foliovision because the article you guys had about how to move a site from Typepad to Wordpress was really well done. It was clear you know what you’re doing. The migration work went smoothly, the recommendation about hosting was good and the site design turned out fantastic. The visitors like it, the site looks much better and our traffic went way up after we made the change.
I was looking for a service to move my very own blog Andertoons from Typepad to Wordpress when I found Foliovision. Every bit of work done by Alec, Martin and the others was fantastic. I couldn’t be satisfied more; the conversion process was very easy with them and also very professional. After I made the changes, my search engine results were far better and the traffic went up considerably.
Having worked with Foliovision on numerous projects, I can honestly say it is great to collaborate with them. I really enjoy working with the owner, Alec – he has a good mind for site architecture and maintains a very honest and straightforward approach that I appreciate. I have worked closely with Viktor and Martin as well and appreciate their skill set and attention to detail. With difficult challenges, Foliovision come up with a choice of good alternative approaches instead of saying it’s not possible.
My web designer picked Foliovision for Blogspot conversion to Wordpress, as well as the recipe design and optimization, for my site, www.FineCooks.com. I was very pleased with the professional services they provided. Their team significantly improved my website’s overall function and form, as well as immediately brought in additional traffic.
Foliovision did a fantastic job moving my site beyondvc.com from Typepad to Wordpress. The new graphics and layout were just what I wanted and most importantly they preserved all of my old links and my Google rankings. Foliovision were professional and worked quickly. My visitors love the updated site; it is cleaner, simpler and looks modern.
I was working on a blog redesign for a client. After researching how to transfer a TypePad blog to Wordpress, I found that it was far more complicated than I imagined. After a quick Google search, I found Foliovision, who had perfected the Type-to-Wordpress process. Using their service, I was able to sit back and focus on the design aspects of the blog while Foliovision transferred the content.
It was our luckiest chance to connect with Foliovision. Our site now looks fantastic, our customers find it very easy to navigate. Finally we have the website which we are proud of! I really can’t say enough good things about working with Foliovision.
Alec is just fantastic, Zdenka is just incredible, I just could not have been happier with my experience! Alec did everything to stick to the original timetable and Foliovision completed the project within budget
Heather HaddenOur team took over the maintainance of Heather’s brand-new website and allowed her to focus more on her growing real-estate business.
I was frustrated with moving my blog BrandingBlog.com from Typepad to Wordpress, so I did a Google search and found Foliovision’s service. It would be very time consuming and difficult if I was going to do it myself, but Foliovision moved my website to a platform I had more control over without me having to figure it out.
I decided to contact Foliovision when a colleague recommended them after I had a security problem in the United States and I didn’t want a company from the US to help me with the transfer to Wordpress. The Cooperation was definitely good and Foliovision did a great job with my site.
We have been working with Foliovision for years now and we like Foliovision. They deliver smart service working on the internet. They understand the internet. The work done by them is excellent!
Foliovision was recommended to us by Toronto Realtor Julie Kinnear because we were looking for someone to revamp our website and build a new inventory management system, which would make our work easier. The old inventory system was horrible and didn’t help us at all. With Foliovision, we got a great new website and a new, very good custom inventory system.
Jeff UtechtAfter some research and knowing that Alec had helped a couple of other educational bloggers design their blogs, I decided to go with Foliovision to design my blog. The goal was to have a custom theme that would fit my needs and the needs of the viewers of my blog and work with specialists to make the site as good as it can be, fast and clean. Foliovision was the right choice, I had a very good experience with the company because they know what they are doing, especially in WordPress. What I liked the most about my experience with Foliovision is how responsive and fast they have been, and the online system they use for communication. The work done was very good, I even started a second project with Foliovision based on the cooperation on the first one.
When I first started blogging back in ’05 I was a bit confused by WordPress, so I opted for TypePad. TypePad has been easy to use, but I’ve enviously watched WordPress evolve into a far superior platform. My anxiety level increased as its parent company, Six Apart, was sold to a new owner. The thought that some new owner of TypePad might one day shut it down was frightening. But so was the idea that in moving to WordPress, I might jeopardize my content and traffic. Fortunately I found Foliovision – and here’s three reasons why I can highly recommend their work:
When we needed help converting our legacy Typepad blogs over to Wordpress, I contacted Alec at Foliovision. These conversions have a reputation for being difficult, but Foliovision was able to handle each one without issue. Even though there was a significant time difference between Europe and LA, Alec’s team made themselves available.
One of the compelling factors in selecting Foliovision versus other providers was, when I contacted some of the other providers, their response was not as professional, they acted more like maybe single individuals that were trying to do some business on the side or something, so, they said some of the right things, but they didn’t have a process in place, and I’m very process-oriented. Also looking through the references on the Foliovision site, I recognized a few websites that I have known and respect and follow like Andertoons.
I was looking to migrate from Typepad to Wordpress, because I think Wordpress has got much better support, much better plugins, and it’s better to work with. So I was looking for people who had experience in doing the migration when an internet search came up with Foliovision offering their service.
I had a friend who recommended Foliovision to me, because I wanted to migrate my site elizabethesther.com from Typepad to Wordpress. It would have been just too much work for me to do it on my own, so I went with Foliovision and the cooperation turned out to be great! Foliovision worked really fast and kept me regularly updated with the progress of the works. That was great, I just loved knowing how far along we were. I think it was great all around and that it’s a fantastic service that Foliovision offers.
Jamie SarnerI contacted Foliovision after researching real estate websites that you were working on and I liked the results I have been seeing. I think that Foliovision is innovative and helpful in explaining the way things work. I think that Alec is very knowledgeable and I value his opinion. I think the team is very good to work with; everyone has been very good to work with. Foliovision does the best to make every aspect of the experience as good as it can be while adding value and quality. Foliovision’s services improved my online presence and are helping my business. I can recommend Foliovision, and I already have, because everything I have asked you to do is happening. It’s a good service.
Shauna ReidShauna’s diet site has been a strong inspiration for her visitors. Moving to WordPress helped to extend her reach and start a new chapter of blogging.
I needed to move Informed Comment to a hosting service that would be able to handle my bandwidth so Foliovision set me up and the move was accomplished with minimum disruption. There were big demands on the server from my site and Foliovision made sure that there were no outages. They have also done a re-design of the basic outlook of the site which people like; it has a nice, clean look to it. I would recommend Foliovision without a doubt; they really have helped the site to fulfill more of its potential.
Foliovision brought a level of professionalism to the look and functionality of my sites that had exceeded anything that preceded it. Working with Foliovision has been a pleasure–they are totally professional, competent, imaginative, efficient and attentive. Foliovision seems like a 24/7 operation. Alec and Martin in particular are fantastic. I couldn’t be happier. I would recommend you highly for absolutely anybody.
Sara MacLennanI was looking for a way to move from Typepad to Wordpress when I came across Foliovision’s blog. When I realized how much time and effort it would require to make the move on my own, I decided to move it with Foliovision. The transition was smooth and the result was fantastic! The service was definitely worth the money, so I have already recommended Foliovision and will continue to do so.
As I transitioned my blog from Wordpress.com to Wordpress.org, my webdesigner OMSH recommended Foliovision. OMSH and Foliovision worked together seamlessly to upgrade my site; they made it run faster and created a more user-friendly environment for my readers. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Foliovision; they’ve responded quickly to my concerns and their prices are reasonable.
I was petrified to make the move from Typepad to Wordpress. I had over 1,000 blog posts and over 10,000 comments. Not to mention the back links. I couldn’t afford for anything to go wrong or get lost.
So I put it off for months. But when I heard about Foliovision and saw the size of some of the blogs they’d already converted, I was ready to take the risk.
Chris FraserAfter inheriting a horribly organized Joomla sports club site and struggling to operate it for two months, I concluded that it was time to junk the whole site and start over. As I looked online for discussions of Joomla vs other choices, I came across Alec’s blog post, which was by far the clearest and most incisive. Looking through Foliovision’s large portfolio of page designs and testimonials convinced me that they would do a good job. The project went extremely well. The new site is much more viewer-friendly on the front side and user-friendly on the back end. Even though we’re a club site with a roughly steady audience, traffic has definitely gone up, since the site is much more functional and attractive now. In working with Foliovision, I particularly liked our communication. We had lots of interaction in the process of settling on the design and functions and in carrying through the tech work, the bulk of which was done by Zdenka. As for the design process, Alec and Michala worked from principles specifically appropriate for a club site, which is different from a commercial site or a blog. The level of service we received earned our confidence and loyalty. I would definitely recommend Foliovision to anyone who values competence, professionalism, and honest opinions.
Reading Alec’s blog post about moving from Typepad to WordPress was my first encounter with Foliovision. Since I wanted true experts to work on my website, I decided to contact the company and the result was a welcome surprise.
Anne Marie Nichols
Everything Foliovision produced was top quality, everything was unique, very clean and beautiful.
The whole process of converting my Typepad to Wordpress was quick and accurate, the team team was very organized and I liked that they had everything set up as a checklist from beginning to end.
The whole investment was totally worth the money and these guys are top of the list if such situation comes up again. And if I hear from somebody wanting to do the same, I’ll be sure to recommend them.
Diane HenklerWhenever I had a question, Foliovision staff answered it almost immediately. They are not a bunch of people who went to school, took a course and think they can design a website. They are true professionals who know exactly what they are doing. I am glad to say that my blog now runs smoothly and loads fast and my traffic has gone up substantially.
Benjamin BerzollaMy cooperation with Foliovision started when I decided to move my blog from Typepad to WordPress. That was a very complex task, but Foliovision staff impressed me with their knowledge and experience of how to make the whole process simple and easy-to-understand. They delivered clean, perfectly executed design, which helped me make some new partnership. My budget went up, but so did my traffic. Foliovision did an amazing job in terms of SEO and I wholeheartedly recommend them to all my colleagues and associates.
Connie VeilleuxI am really happy with the new design. It makes my head spin with how much I’ve learned! I know I would never want to do this by myself. Viktor’s training was phenomenal! The SEO help was very good. Google can now see my posts more easily. Alex and her team were phenomenal as well. Everybody was so polite and easy to work with. The team was always making sure that they understood my questions when I asked them, and always asked if I understood their explanations. The new site presents a much more professional image and is much more user-friendly for visitors. Thanks so much, Foliovision!
Rafael JimenezAfter eight years on the Typepad platform, we were exploring switching CMS platforms. Unfortunately, it’s not easy to switch without losing 8 years of links, images, content and Google rankings. After some extensive research we stumbled upon Foliovision who had performed a similar switch for The Hollywood Reporter site. So we said to ourselves, “if it’s good enough for the Hollywood Reporter, then it’s good enough for us.” So we reached out to Alec at Foliovision and after some extensive back and forth where he answered all of out questions and made some very good recommendations, we chose Foliovision to perform our Typepad to WordPress conversion on over 2500 posts without losing any of the relevant links. It was a pleasure working virtually with the Foliovision team. Everyone that I worked with was pretty thorough and took all of my design and programming ideas into consideration. Alec was simply fantastic. As the overall project manager he made sure that the project remained on track making sure that our vision for the site was executed just right. Post move, we’ve decided retain Foliovision for additional design and custom programming.
telelouangeThank you for your great support. I was a JW player enterprise customer and left them because i was not satisfied with their technical support.
Gregory KonczRandom seeking took 4-6 second even before, but now it’s just lightening fast 1-2 seconds!!! And it works on all browsers.
Amir EmamiThanks a lot Lucia for your complete answer. FV Player is the most perfect player in the world.
Devin ShawnFV Player and especially its AB Loop are amazing, it’s so easy to use and there are so many options to customize it.
Tommie McDonaldAbsolutely love the product. I never imagined a newbie like me could run a complicated web media business without any technical knowledge!
Mike AchillesThanks for all your help. I’m converting my clients off of Viddler and jwPlayer by pushing videos out to Amazon S3 and Cloudfront with FV Player. All in all they are happy to be saving lots of $$$.
Ron Valderrama, StreamNow CEOI love this product but have to say the support is even better. Thanks for being such an awesome company to work with.
Cory PetkovsekThanks to your help I was able to release our new product in time with my videos on cloudfront http and rtmp. I like that you went over the technical detail so I could understand the process.
Evélina SimonAlec, thank you so much for your help and for taking the time to test further! Where else can I find such support!
Nate BrownYour plugin has revolutionized my website and I can’t thank you enough for making it affordable for everyone.
Richard StoneThe team at FV provided excellent support in getting the player set up on the site and provided outstanding documentation to assist me. Couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome.
Laurent BertinBest plugin ever. Spent weeks looking for a great video player and yours is the best by FAR.
John W. Tuggle
The biggest advantages of the FV player from my perspective are the slow motion and the AB looping. Having these features available makes it a lot easier for someone to learn.
When we were rebuilding the site initially, we were using JW Player. We couldn’t get it to work in WP with the features we wanted, so we were searching for other video players and we came across the FV player and we loaded it right away. It was easy to load and easy to install.
