Founded by Jake Lodwick and Zach Klein in November of 2004, Vimeo is a video sharing platform where people can share their own videos online as well as view those of others. The platform is free of off-putting advertisements, allowing viewers to focus on their chosen video. It’s a great place for artists and film makers looking to make it big. The platform has grown to over 14 million members. Today we will show you how to upload DVD contenes to Vimeo with ease.
Part 1: About Vimeo
The website supports HD video and, from August 2010 on, encodes all uploaded videos into H.264 format for HTML5 compatibility. Standard users, aka non-Plus users, are allowed to upload 500 MB of standard definition and one HD video per week. Plus users, who pay a $60 premium each year, are allowed to upload a total of 5 GB of videos per week, including an unlimited number of HD videos. A PRO membership is also available, allowing a total of 50 GB of video uploads a week.
In case you are wondering, it differs largely from YouTube because of its “artsy” distinctiveness. That’s not to say that there aren’t any great artists promoting their work on YouTube – because they’re definitely there as well – but YouTube is so huge that it encompasses everything you could point a camera at. Vimeo, on the other hand, is very much known specifically for creative artistry. The site also supports many formats to make a user’s video sharing experience very much worth it.
