Vimeo is a video platform that is in direct competition with Google’s YouTube. Unlike YouTube’s free but rather low barrier of entry, Vimeo holds their creators to a higher level of quality and standards, and in return, provide them with advanced privacy options so they can control where their content is being shared, along with more in-depth reports and filters, and tougher security.
What to Buy
Vimeo provides its users unlimited bandwidth in the Vimeo player but it restricts the size of videos uploaded to the site on a weekly and a yearly basis. Free users on the site, for instance, are only allowed up to 500MB per week, and 5GB in total. Due to this, if you’re planning on setting up a dedicated channel there, you might want to opt for a Vimeo Plus subscription plan to drastically increase that weekly cap from 500MB to 5GB. The total cap is removed with a subscription but a new yearly cap (of up to 250GB a year for the Vimeo Plus) is imposed instead. Of course, depending on your needs, you might want to get either the Vimeo PRO or the Vimeo Business too.
The video platform is also renowned for its advanced privacy and security features, which honestly, best YouTube in many ways. For example, as long as you have a subscription, you can impose a domain-level privacy to prevent any random someone from embedding your videos on their site. Unlike YouTube, it is much harder for shady individuals from downloading your videos on Vimeo and reupload them on their own, brand-new channel.
The many video editing and reviewing tools you’ll have access to on Vimeo also help make a huge difference (in the end product) especially for professionals who do this for a living.
As mentioned, Vimeo is famous for its advanced privacy and security features, but what we have not mentioned yet is its thriving community. Much like Adobe’s community of creative professionals, if you like the idea of being able to discuss, share and learn from your peers in the film and video making as well as editing industry, then, you might want to opt for Vimeo.
Is It Time to Buy?
Although admittedly YouTube is the popular choice when video platform is considered, Vimeo has plenty of special features, including privacy and security features, to offer that professionals in the video industry might find alluring. The subscription plans aren’t exactly expensive either.
