  • Vimeo for beginners

    What do you like best?

    The simplicity of Vimeo is one of its best attributes. I don't pretend to be massively tech savvy. I can work my way round programmes but Vimeo didn't make me feel like an idiot. The ease of uploading videos and being able to ensure the settings were correct to ensure privacy was straightforward and clear. It just made sense what it was asking me to do and there were clear instructions throughout. Being able to acces the embed code to then display the video on our LMS is brilliant. It saves our users bandwidth as they don't have to download the vidoes themselves.

    What do you dislike?

    There is nothing that I really disliked regarding Vimeo. The time it took to prepare the videos once we had uploaded them was a bit long on occasions but loads better than another hosting site we have tried to use before, which insisted on approving videos we uploaded before they were made available. This could take up to a week. Some of the privacy settings on Vimeo weren't very clear on occassions but through trial and error I was able to work out what was the best settings for our videos.

    Recommendations to others considering the product

    Try it. It's user friendly, straightforward and really quick. It does exactly what you need to whilst still ensuring privacy, which is a big thing for us as an organisation.

    Always a Great Experience

    What do you like best?

    It's simple. Uploads, simple. Tagging, embedding, playback, statistics, emailing, sharing - all of it. It's just so simple. I love it for business, playback is clean and you can do anything you want with it. That said, I am a "pro" user not a free user.

    What do you dislike?

    No much, but if I have to pick on anything, when I go into the site, I would prefer a better "home page" experience. I always have to navigate to my videos and past what's in the general feed. By I'm more producer than consumer.

    Recommendations to others considering the product

    Try, you'll love it! You can start off with the free version, but if you want to get into power usage, do not be afraid to upgrades, it's totally worth it!

  • Vimeo (for iPad) sports an attractive, well-designed interface and lots of neat features (such as video editing), but bugs keep this app from reaching its true potential.

  • While Vimeo is in no way paying me to write this, I highly suggest utilizing Vimeo as your video hosting service of choice. The free account is great for low-use personal uploading, but for heavy video producers and businesses, a plus or pro account is necessary.

    Vimeo is to my mind one of the best video networks around because it has a high concentration of creative content providers. As Vimeo is a much smaller network, good quality content gets a better chance and that is what I like about it.
