Stornaway.io is uniquely flexible and open, so you can publish your interactive videos to Stornaway’s amazing player, to the Web and Social Media, to LMS and CMS platforms, to YouTube and to other compatible platforms as they become available.

The Web and Social Media
For a  fully-featured and custom-designed experience, you can publish to your own site and to social media using our powerful Stornaway player and streaming platform.

LMS (Learning Management Systems) 
Stornaway.io projects can be embedded on LMS pages, and thus included in the SCORM packages that LMS systems and eLearning authoring tools use to exchange data and track learners’ outcomes. We are working on further integrations with LMS standards – please get in touch if you’d like to know more.

YouTube
We have created the first game engine for YouTube. Craft and test your interactive video stories in Stornaway.io and publish them direct to YouTube with interactive links, to reach their huge global audience of 2 billion monthly users.

We’re working on a Unity publishing tool that will let you take your projects into Unity and Unreal for publishing to any of the platforms they use – get in touch to find out more.

Compatible VOD platforms
Stornaway.io was designed as a universal authoring tool, and we’re working towards integrations with major VOD platforms. If you’re a producer looking to publish to a 3rd party platform, we can solve your storytelling and delivery problems – contact us for more details.

What's the difference between Stornaway and other tools?

Interactive video is much more than just a video with a button on it. It’s a whole new way of thinking about video, by joining up multiple clips into viewer journeys and experiences. From feature films and immersive theatre to demos and tours, from recruitment and training to challenges and behaviour change campaigns – the uses of interactive media stories are exploding (seemingly by the day!)

We built Stornaway.io as an interactive filmmaking platform, and it’s grown to be a creative-focused production tool for all kinds of interactive video stories and journeys in every sector. We’re proud to be a part of a rich ecosystem of tools.

There are lots of platforms to choose from – and each has a slightly different offering. So for 2022, we’ve took a dive into 22 top options – along with information on their key features, who they’re best for and (where possible) pricing – and compiled our findings in an article: 22 interactive video tools for 2022.

We hope that whatever you’re trying to do, you give Stornaway.io a test drive – do let us know how you get on. Have a look at some of our examples and case studies via the links below to see what’s possible.

How much does it cost?

Stornaway.io’s Personal plan is free for you to use, to write and play interactive video experiences.

Our plans for publishing and sharing start at $10 per month for the Plus plan.
