Vimeo markets itself as a premium video hosting service, but just last year, seeing the huge success that streaming sites like Twitch has enjoyed, it ventures into the field of video streaming with the launch of Vimeo Live. To put it simply, Vimeo Live is basically Vimeo, only live and as such, you can also expect a variety of tools which will allow you to interact with your audience while streaming.
What to Buy
Quality videos are the cornerstone of Vimeo and you can expect nothing less of its relatively brand-new venture, Vimeo Live. You’ll be able to broadcast your events live up to 1080p with no ads whatsoever. This quality assurance is also pretty much guaranteed across platforms, even on devices with limited bandwidth, via cloud transcoding.
As everything’s live, you can interact with your audience through the live audience chat feature. You can even stream directly to social media. Once the event ends, you can replace your streams with video files of up to 4k resolution – an option that is sorely lacking in YouTube, their closest competitor.
Of course, being Vimeo, you’ll be able to access a range of advanced privacy tools as well as customization options, such as adding custom logos and colors or “call to action” buttons to your videos. You’ll also have up to 7TB-worth of hosting space/archiving storage, access to powerful analytics and feedback collection tools, and you can even sell your videos directly from Vimeo.
Vimeo Live is not free however. For all of these amazing tools and absolutely no ads, you’ll just need to pay $75 per month.
Aside from the usual highlights that all Vimeo services offer, I’d like to point out that the ability to reupload your streamed videos with proper video recordings is a feature that is pretty much unheard of, at least among the video hosting and streaming circles. This is definitely something worth taking note.
Is It Time to Buy?
If video streaming and hosting is something you need, you can only choose between Vimeo Live and YouTube Live since Twitch doesn’t let you keep the recordings of your streams permanently, and as mentioned, Vimeo has the advantage over YouTube in this case, mainly because you are allowed to replace your streamed video with a proper recording of up to 4k Ultra HD. In exchange for that, plus other features and no ads, you’ll need to pay a monthly subscription fee.
