I know I’m probably pretty late to this bandwagon, but I never realised just how much amazing content there is on Vimeo. YouTube may be the king of video quantity, but sometimes (often? all the time?) I want to see original videos on interesting topics, in HD.
The artist community on Vimeo is really strong, as are the corporate entities (such as The White House) that publish on that site. About an hour into exploring, I’ve watched a half-dozen mini-documentaries and some really great visual stories. The one below is my favourite today.
Uploading Puerto Rico
As far as uploading, I’ve read that the video quality/colour/sound is much better for free Vimeo accounts than YouTube, even in 480p. Judge for yourself, I put up a hastily edited video from my Puerto Rico trip on YouTube, as well as Vimeo. Take a look, we had a pretty sweet vacation.
