VIMEO

What is VIMEO?

Vimeo is video sharing resource that gives internet users another place to search for and post their videos. Anyone can browse the videos added to Vimeo. The website encourages creative contributions and gives users an easy way to share their work with others. Individuals can also use Vimeo to share personal videos with family and friends.

WHO IS IT FOR?
Vimeo.com is a great tool for anyone who would like to share videos online. The application is one of the few that can accommodate both casual users and professionals who need an easy, inexpensive way to share their video work or product demonstrations. The site doesn’t have as much content as YouTube, but the technical quality of the site is outstanding.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
  • Each video is presented with recommended videos, a summary, the author’s name, how long ago it was added and sharing tools.
  • Users can also “like” a video, embed videos in other websites and blogs and save videos for viewing later.

  • A couch mode button is also included on each video page which causes the video to enlarge and take up almost all of the browser (so it looks more like a television show than an internet video).
  • A chart with video-related statistics is also visible and shows how many times the video was played, liked and commented on during the past few days (along with totals for each count).

  • Vimeo users can leave comments on videos or respond to comments posted under their videos.
