Pros: Incredible website that lets you upload and store your videos without any advertisements being jammed down your throat every thirty seconds. I like that I can see who is watching my videos and how many times. I like that I can let people download my videos if I choose. Its streamlined, intuitive, and easy. I've also found lots of great content uploaded by other users that was recommended by the website.

Cons: I don't have any complaints. This is an alternative to things like youtube that I think everyone should be using instead.

Pros: So many pros to list here. My favorite features are the reviews page. Giving a private link and allowing clients to make notes at specific times in the video has been hugely helpful. The ability to replace the video while maintaining the same URL is also amazing, and very helpful when managing videos linked to all kinds of sites. All the privacy options makes it easy to manage a huge portfolio. The albums feature makes it easy to organize large video lists into sections. Being able to allow downloads makes this the best platform for working with clients from start to finish. Can't praise Vimeo enough. Vimeo > Youtube

Cons: Occasionally, the upload will fail and replacing the video will not work, making it necessary to start over with a fresh link.

Pros: it makes it really simple to have and organiza all your videos. It has the awesome ability to replace a video without altering the link to it, so we can always count on sending out a link of a video and updating the video anytime if needed.

Cons: it lacks a few things that make the platform more user friendly like youtube, and since its a more proffessional platform than YT videos and pages tend to be a little heavier for loading times.

Pros: very extensive options on organizing videos and how to share them. allows uploading several videos at a time with very reasonable caps (i typically upload 500+ videos on a weekly basis). gives you the option to cap what resolution the video is watched in and gives you the option to sell videos on their platform.

Cons: if using chrome, be careful on multitasking in the browser, sometimes my Vimeo tab will stop responding and my videos uploading are halted and I have to start over again, Vimeo does not resume where videos were left off. to mitigate this they should develop a standalone desktop application instead of relying on a browser.

Pros: What I like most is the privacy, You can hide the video from Vimeo and only allow embeds in a particular domain. Also, the ability to customize your embeds (remove or add title, profile picture, Vimeo logo, your own logo and customize colors). The multiple upload features are time saving, giving you the possibility to upload multiple videos at once and even via FTP.

Cons: I really like Vimeo Pro . Maybe what I like least is how expensive it can be if you have a lot of videos. Also, socially speaking, YouTube videos position better than Vimeo videos.

Overall: With Vimeo Pro I was able to setup a premium section with videos that can only be seen if you are a Member of the Premium Plan (not free). I setup the videos to not show on Vimeo and only be embedded in a particular domain. All of this without the need to host the videos myself so the videos load fast and with the privacy we need.

Pros: I really like that Vimeo enables you with a ton of options when uploading a video and choosing to share a video. If you only want one person to be able to view something for a week, and then a separate person to be able to view that same video for a month, you can allow that.
Other highlights include the ease of downloading videos.

Cons: This is not a true con but just an observation: I think of Vimeo as a more professional version of YouTube, and while I prefer YouTube for personal life, I always use Vimeo for work/school. You could get by with probably just using Vimeo's free version as well as YouTube as well.

Pros: We love that Vimeo hosts our videos and never places ads in our videos. We are able to use Vimeo to host our services for embedding on our website. That keeps our site uncluttered and high speed. I have never seen Vimeo have downtime and I have never had problems.

Cons: Vimeo Pro can get expensive if you need to upload a lot of video in any given week. If you only need to go over your limit occasionally, you will still need to upgrade your plan, and I would rather have a flexible plan.

Overall: We are able to host all the videos we need and embed them elsewhere for a reasonable price.

Pros: What I like best about Vimeo Pro are the strong control / privacy features and the video review features. Being able to control password protection, link expirations and video downloadability add so much relief when sharing and reviewing sensitive video content. The content is so secure and early versions of videos that aren't final yet don't have to be downloaded by people that shouldn't be given access to download them. I've worked in advertising and tech and I'd much rather share early rounds of video content via Vimeo Pro vs. WeTransfer or another video sending / sharing program since I can protect against their ability to download the file and accidentally use it later or confuse it for a final. So, quality control and version control are made easier simply by having the program be protected, filterable and secured. Version control is made even clearer via video review pages where you can compare video versions and detail differences among videos and even add timestamped notes right within these videos to detail these said differences. For working in video production, Vimeo Pro is top notch and really helps streamline, clarify and consolidate videos in development.

Cons: This isn't necessarily something I dislike but just a truth to share after videos are final my teams and I have always moved our videos to YouTube and social media vs. hosting them on Vimeo since YouTube is more universally used. My teams have known you can link Vimeo videos to YouTube, etc. and even initiate paid advertising through the Vimeo portal but for videos on YouTube and other channels but that always seemed like too much work / not worth it when you can go handle business with YouTube directly.

Pros: Vimeo has very good quality video uploading and strong compatibility. Becuase of this we use it for internal video and sharing proofs of videos being edited.

Cons: Vimeo doesn't do a great job of discovery compared to YouTube so we don't usually use the platform to publish public videos.

Pros: Super easy to upload and keep copies of your videos in one place on the cloud. The analytics offered are also a great add on.

Cons: Not so much an issue but hosting videos on Vimeo is not anywhere near as popular as hosting videos on YouTube where people know to find videos so the promotion tools aren't all that useful.

Pros: The software does its base functions well. Posting videos and showing full video portfolios is done well and with relative ease.

Cons: I have had issues with uploading things and having some of the sharing permissions applied incorrectly. The base functions are done well but it seems Vimeo is having a hard time evolving with the industry. For free users Vimeo is great but with paid users, it is often hard to justify the cost. The uploading process seems a little more complicated than it should be and never seems to get the settings quite right.

Overall: It is good for showing off your work.

Pros: I like how easy to use the software interface is and how easy it is to share in various things like our website, our app, and easily sent in the emails and share it on social media. It's also great for close captioning and has some great tools in services to add close captioning to your files.

Cons: What's the worst part of using Vimeo pro is the customer service, venues customer service is not good and I've had very poor interactions with them with little to no help.

Pros: There's no other way to go than Vimeo. It's high quality, has a clean & user-friendly design, affordable, gives you great analytics, several great & easy options for hosting your videos on your website, and even allows you to replace the video file if you've made an edit after you've already published. Vimeo Pro has been a huge catalyst in launching my own film business and allows me to distribute and host films easily & beautifully.

Cons: There aren't any standout cons for me. The only hardship is that while the value for the annual fee is great, it is a bit costly for a freelancer on a budget.

Pros: Vimeo exceeded all expectations. When uploading videos, Vimeo would fork the file into multiple deliverables to have options to provide each user with the optimum file for their device/bandwidth. The security features were excellent. You can define passwords for videos or set specific sites that videos can be played on, but blocked from all others. There were other Intro and Outtro features that can be set with the tool (we didn't use this, but were aware of the capability). The analytics dashboard provided key details on video consumption. This allowed us to gather key information on what videos were successful and what made videos successful.

Cons: The one thing I would love to see offered by Vimeo is the ability to create a playlist of videos into a coordinated sequence or set of videos around a topic.

Overall: I had to move a video library of 120+ videos from an FTP server to a video hosting platform. We selected Vimeo, and couldn't be more thrilled. It was very secure and parsed uploaded files into multiple deliverables so customers would get the video sized right for the device they were using to access the video.

The biggest testament to how much we believed in Vimeo is that our video library moved from just over 120 when we moved onto Vimeo to close to 700 videos in 1.5 years. We had thousands of customers accessing custom content, but never had a security breach (we could see the failed attempts from some hacking centers across the world).

Pros: I love how much space I'm allotted on a weekly basis with my pro membership. It is incredibly worth it and has changed the way I work with clients.

Cons: It's difficult to try and identify cons. I feel like what I get for the annual fee is great, but admittedly, as an independent filmmaker I find it a little pricey. But even that feels like a bit of a stretch with what I've gotten out of using Vimeo Pro.

Overall: I mean it when I say Vimeo Pro has changed my life as a filmmaker. I particularly love the access I get to Vimeo On Demand. I was able to self-distribute my film in a way that just a few years ago would be impossible.

Used to organize hundreds of videos on a private membership site.

Pros: The best bit of the PRO version is the ability to send a review link to your clients. They can then (without having to sign up to Vimeo) play the video and then click and write a comment which is tracked to that timecode. I can then review the video and make all the changes the client has requested. I also use this feature for creating a video and then letting the client mark where they would like text to appear and what they would like to say. I've not yet found another system which does this so professionally that I pay the yearly price just for this feature, the rest is just a bonus (don't tell them that though, they might put the price up)

Pros: The quality, look, and feel of using Vimeo has been amazing for our website. We have been using it to host all our videos for many years. The biggest pro is that we can swap out videos and not break any existing links or embeds. This is great when updating a demo reel, and don't want to lose view counts and statistics, as well as go into the website and update the video link path. Vimeo also just has a really slick interface, which is prefered over YouTube and other competitors we have tried.

Cons: 20GB a week feels small, because when we work on our website we often have downtime and are doing it all in one week. I wish it was more like 100GB a month instead, give us more flexibility

Pros: Vimeo's paid offerings make it easy to upload, share, and manage large video libraries at the highest quality. It's the de-facto standard for digital screener sharing in the independent film and television sector.

The admin and features are very easy to understand - and we've had no trouble training non-technical staff to set up even complicated videos with unusual combinations of security permissions.
They have robust support for privacy control, embedding, subtitling and other accessibility features.

As a major platform, most major encoders come pre-set with optimized profiles, and (in most cases) automatic upload functions available.

Cons: The paid offerings can sometimes be a difficult sell for very small companies/individuals as there are few services that Vimeo offers that can't be replicated by completely free alternatives (mostly via YouTube) - but the high quality and ad-free experience is often worth it.

Pros: I love that there are no ads on our videos and the upload is quick! I also enjoy getting to customize the embed code and the way it is presented on other websites.

Cons: I don't like the limit to how much you can upload in a given amount of time, but we have not run into any issues after purchasing the pro account.

Vimeo Pro is a capable platform for sharing high-quality videos from your portfolio

Pros: Vimeo Pro is, in my experience, the lowest compression video streaming service for professional use (other than just sending files directly to clients). Vimeo is a great place to hold reels, demos, and featurettes to showcase your work, as it definitely carries a quality edge over the competition. Videos look less compressed, and resolution/codec support is quite robust.

Vimeo Pro is also a really neat way to meet other artists and view their work. Because Vimeo is tailored to creative uses, sifting through content is much easier than on YouTube, where there are buckets of non-artistic videos being published every second.

Cons: Vimeo is expensive for the service provided. Yes, Vimeo provides low compression video streaming, which matters when trying to make your best impression with clients or partners, but the price seems high when the chief competitors are free.

Also, Vimeo's mobile website and apps are consistently buggy. Performance is slow, the site often crashes (tested on various mobile devices), and sometimes videos scale incorrectly when in fullscreen.

Lastly, Vimeo has not innovated as much as competitors. Though the site is generally more attractive, and the UI is easy to use, things have not changed much in the time since I began using it. This might mean the developers are not seeking for long-term growth.

Overall: Vimeo is a great, low-compression digital venue to showcase artistic work that matters.

Pros: I love how easy it is to create videos as there are a bunch of pre-made selections to choose from. The functions are easy to figure out but if you have trouble, the customer support line is incredibly capable of walking you through step by step in order to get the program up and running in order to get your video created and syndicated through to multiple platforms including Facebook and other social media sources.

Cons: I dislike the inability to create presentations. if it were more creative-friendly and you were able to add animations to create presentations, I believe this would be a great all-in-one tool to utilize.

Having greater upload capacity is a must for us.

Pros: Not having a 500gb cap on weekly uploads is such a great feature. 500gb really limits how much sharing of videos you can do.

Cons: It would be great if there was no 500gb cap to begin with, but I guess then they couldn't charge for something.

Overall: Having a professional-looking space to host our videos is great for audience and client viewership.

Simple to use and effective. Not as many things to dislike as some other outlets available.

Pros: I love that it doesn't involve adverts. The videos are most simple to upload, in any standard format. Its an intuitive tool - and doesn't require much effort. I can then share the videos very simply anywhere -social media, website...etc.

Overall: Upload many movies on the same day in a very simple manner! No adverts - so my viewers don't have to be exposed to competitors or unrelated content after the video has finished running.
It's not as widely used - but that doesn't really effect my decision to use it or not...I will still use the tool.

Pros: I love how easy it is to upload my videos and keep them organized. I work with a variety of freelancers, so it's helpful to be able to give them all access to upload their footage.

Cons: There isn't much flexibility on how the videos look and how playlists function - I've found the Wistia is much better for that.

Comments: Vimeo gives both high-quality videos as well as high-quality content. It's clearly a cut above YouTube with its content and could be seen as a more professional option. Carefully consider going PRO before you do so as you might not get that much out of if you are just starting to use Vimeo. There are a few worthwhile features you do get, like better analytics, tools to sell you videos and unlimited HD streaming to name a few. Vimeo PRO is great but carefully weigh your options before you consider jumping right in.

Comments: Generally, the product is overly complicated. Lots of features, but difficult to learn. Support materials kinda geared to video-heads. Early on, I found a number of quirks (bugs) that only service could address, but their service attitude is consumer minded, not especially business minded. Frustration every single time I log in.
