Vidnami has been my go-to video creation service for creating marketing videos and some purely informative videos for many years.
It was formerly, and perhaps better known as Content Samurai.
I used the service, literally, for years.
But now it’s gone.
The owners were bought out by GoDaddy earlier this year (2021).
You can see it from their perspective – it’s a huge payday for all the work they put in, and there were less than 10 people on the development team.
But it’s left their customers and affiliates high and dry.
Affiliates played, by Vidnami’s owners own admission, a huge role in building up their customer base.
And while affiliates did …
Vidnami is an online video creation app that makes creating videos quick and simple.
Video is a great way to get your message out, whether you’re providing general information to people, showcasing your business or promoting various offers as an affiliate marketer.
It’s what I use myself, and I created the video above in my own Vidnami account (and uploaded it to YouTube).
In the video, I talk about the newest feature in the tool – it’s Artificial Intelligence Engine – which makes creating videos even faster than before.
I also reference two videos I created with the new engine – a raw, unedited video and a final edited video.

Content Samurai is a very popular online video creation service.
It allows anyone to easily create professional-quality videos with copy & paste and point-and-click skills (i.e. those who are not technically minded).
These videos are perfect if you don’t want to appear on camera yourself, or you don’t want to use your own voice in videos.
There’s a full review of Content Samurai over on my sister website if you want to know the details.
Anyway, the developers of Content Samurai decided that their video creation service needed a new name because its current name doesn’t exactly even hint that it’s got anything to do with video.
I also wrote a long …
UPDATE: I’ve updated this comparison review to reflect changes in both Instant Video Wizard and Content Samurai since the post was first written. Both online video creation apps have dropped significantly in price since then and Instant Video Wizard has had a user interface re-design, now reflected in the screenshots below.
There’s a new video creation tool on the block called Instant Video Wizard which has just gone on sale today. Instant Video Wizard has now been available for a couple of years.
You may have seen a previous post I wrote about my favorite video creation tool – Content Samurai. I also have a more extensive review of Content …
Content Samurai is an online video maker that I regularly use now. It makes the process of creating videos very simple. It’s pretty much all point and click with a small bit of copy and paste.
I have a full review of Content Samurai here on one of my other sites.
A new feature has just been added to the tool – the ability to add motion video backgrounds into your videos. These appear behind your text and adding them into your productions is as simple as clicking a mouse.
Adding an animated video background, or several of them, into your videos has fantastic benefits:
Moving images attract the eye …
One of the tools I use regularly is called Content Samurai. It’s a video creation tool and, as we all know, video plays a huge part on online marketing.
There are a huge number of video creation tools out there such as:
…but I like Content Samurai because of its ease of use.
I create a script for the video, which could be the text copied from a post I’ve published on this or another site, and paste that into Content Samurai.
It then creates slides with that text and automatically adds background images to …

I haven’t had a chance to check this new video product out but if you’re into making videos, especially ones where you or some other person appears on screen, this might be of interest.
Green Screen Academy
This is a 3-in-1 suite of green-screen products. If you don’t know what green-screen is (where have you been?), it’s a solid green backdrop that you film yourself or your presenters in front of.
Then, using the magic of CGI (Computer Generated Imagery), that green backdrop gets replaced by some far more interesting background, so you can appear to be on a tropical island, in a high-tech studio or wherever you fancy.
You get everything …
Example of a Cinemagraph – a still image with a moving element
There’s been a lot of talk about cinemagraphs lately. Sure they’re cool but do you really need them?
Keeping things simple is really key if you want to succeed, especially when starting out.
There definitely is a place for cinemagraphs in video marketing.
They’re beautiful, they’re engaging and big brands have shown that they do get results.
Which is why I wanted to share with you a cool DIY way you can make a cinemagraph video yourself.
It’s a YouTube video I recently found that teaches you how by using photoshop:
That way you can see for yourself how they …
