What is Vimeo?

Vimeo is a cloud-based video management solution designed to help brands, publishers, and organizations of all sizes upload, host, stream, and share video content across multiple channels. The platform is a white-label solution, which enables users to personalize videos using a custom logo, colors, themes, thumbnails, and playback speed.

Vimeo offers collaboration features, which allow administrators to invite team members, freelancers, or clients to private projects, and configure content access using role-based permissions. The solution offers a host of features including password protection, email capture, custom end-screens, file sharing, private uploading, adaptive streaming, and more. The embedding functionality enables businesses to add videos to websites, blogs or other online platforms. Vimeo also includes various live engagement tools such as Q&As, polls, audience chat, and custom calls-to-action.

Vimeo lets users publish content across Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and other social media networks. It includes a centralized dashboard, which allows businesses to gain insight into content engagement, conversions, and more via analytics. Plus, it integrates with various third-party systems such as Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro X, Slack, Dropbox, and Google Drive.

Video platform for high quality videos

The interface is clean and logical. There is no unnecessary chatter to confuse the user. I liked that the platform is used mainly by people who know how to make content, so you can find quality content with good quality right here. The feeling itself is about the business environment. I use some of the materials out there that can't be found anywhere else and have crystal quality.

This Vimeo Pro platform is valuable, it does good things!

We wrote a whole website around it at one point, we are in the video production business and we wanted our videos "play everywhere" with hassle or bandwidth limits. We even had a Christmas video go viral. Vimeo handled our swelling viewership like a champ with no extra fees or charges of any kind. We got tens of thousands of views.

Tech support non existent

My experience has been poor. I’ve lost my temper with tech support many times. They just don’t get it, how it should work.

Vimeo 5 out of 5

Vimeo provides our clients and users with ultra clear and crips video's, it even offers 4k capability. We have only recieved praise from recipients of our videos.

I liked that the platform is used mainly by people who know how to make content, so you can find quality content with good quality right here. The feeling itself is about the business environment. I use some of the materials out there that can't be found anywhere else and have crystal quality.

Pros

I like that it doesn't spoil the quality when uploading. The concept of the product is clear and specific. The content is usually quality. There are no annoying ads to tear up the videos. The platform provides options for customizing the account. It allows you to present yourself professionally and stand out in the best way, without imposing additional things around you. Users can see videos that are not present anywhere else.

Cons

Multiple videos cannot be uploaded at once. Loading the gallery from the phone is a bit slow. For unpaid users, space is limited, which is not the case in other video sharing platforms. There are significantly fewer users, but those who are there definitely know why they are there.

We even had a Christmas video go viral. Vimeo handled our swelling viewership like a champ with no extra fees or charges of any kind. We got tens of thousands of views.

Pros

This video platform is valuable, it does good things. At first, I was a little put off and I asked myself why can't I just host these video on Youtube for free? Why should I pay for this service every month. Vimeo does some pretty great things, first and foremost, Vimeo is discreet, it doesn't add commercials before OR after your videos. You videos get full attention and you control what the end user sees. This is perfect for hosting videos on a corporate website or small Wordpress site. You can even customize how the player looks and where the videos are allowed to play. Other paid sites cost much more for the same features.

Cons

The internal user interface can be clunky at times, you can sometimes get lost in there. But in general, it works well and allows you to save presets on some things that make consistency easier. i.e every video has the same qualities.

My experience has been poor. I’ve lost my temper with tech support many times. They just don’t get it, how it should work.

Pros

Ability to make folders with passwords.

Cons

Poor tech support, slow response to customer needs, crappy app and even after you remove it from a mobile device you get prompted every time you go to play a video to download the crappy app. Inability to navigate and do all the things you do on a full browser on mobile. Slow, slow results of large showcases or folders. Needs a way to load these first as a list instead of a million images that take forever to load if you have many showcases. I could go on. I pay for many accounts that we’ve had for years and I’m tired of paying money for lack of support.

Pros

We use Vimeo for Training material mostly. Vimeo is extremely simple to use and comes with all the bells and whistles you would expect from a video service. The quality that Vimeo produces on its encoding is next to nothing.

Cons

Depending on the amount of users and videos the pricing might scare off people, but for our relatively small organisation it works at the moment. This might change should we expand in the future,

Pros

Vimeo's main competitors like Wistia cost so much more and for small businesses, most can't afford Wistia. Vimeo has been a fine option for video hosting, good value for money.

Cons

We have clients from all over the world and we found out later on that some clients couldn't view the video's hosted on Vimeo. We found out that Vimeo is banned in some countries, while that's not really their fault per se, but it is a pain in the butt as we didn't really have alternative options for video hosting for those countries.
