31 Days, 31 Products: Vimeo

Day 21: Vimeo

This post is part of a larger series where for 31 days I’m posting a story about a particular product or service I’ve come to enjoy.

When it comes to professional video hosts, I choose Vimeo.

Vimeo

Vimeo is a video hosting site that empowers creators to have more control over how their content is displayed and distributed than other services like YouTube.

I like using Vimeo since I can pay for a Pro account which then let’s me upload HD content, have access to that content via an API and makes sure no ads are ever shown over my content. Vimeo is also much more reasonable about ownership right.

Right now we use Vimeo for Philly CocoaHeads content and I have a personal channel as well with some odd and ends. No doubt as I look to do more work for my upcomming project you’ll see a new channel open up soon.

Vimeo has a few tiers of membership with different options and you get started with a trial account.
