Using VIMEO? Good? Or - Not GOOD

Gotta a Project that's calling for something more private than YT. Have you tried and liked VIMEO?

You can - if it's more private, limit who can see the video. For example, with "not listed" - which I usually do when I make a video available here - only those can see the video to whom you have given a link to it.

@walter-i. - I want to host 10 videos for 10 people and for all 10 to view ALL the videos. Is that possible?

I'm sorry, I'm not an expert on YouTube - I rarely put something up there. But should work with "Playlist".
Maybe there is another super trouper Fuzzy who is better at youtube than we are.

@Grazie

Hi,

I suggest that you sign up for the Basic Vimeo. You get a 5GB total limit at 500MB per week, so you can't upload long videos. Beyond that, you pay monthly. Look at the rates.

For privacy, for Basic, you can select: Anyone; Only me; People I follow; People I choose;

and you get more selections if you're paying, including: People with the password; People with the private link; Hide from Vimeo.

There's a lot more, so it's best to try it yourself. One good thing, you don't get all of the adverts like on YT.

@john-brown - That's excellent! Yes, I just read the PLANS, and you've kinda nailed it for me. Cheers 😉

Grazie, I've used Vimeo for years and have been very satisfied with the basic plan. Can designate domains for embed, can control basic information and a host of ways to share, private password, link. Quality is good. Basic statistics. Upload new versions without changing settings.

+1 for Vimeo. Been using the Plus plan for years now. An added advantage is that it's not so picky about the type of music that is being used. Plus, a real advantage in my view is the option to simply "replace" an uploaded file.

If you haven't already decided to jump over to vimeo, you can also make youtube playlists "unlisted"

Just put the videos you want to send to those 10 people into an unlisted playlist and send the playlist link to the people.

@wwaag @rraud I hope to his noodly goodness and back that YT *never* adds that feature. I wanted it once but think YT would become a 4Chan cesspool if people could replace videos. I'm mildly surprised that vimeo allows it but their demographic must include more true adults.

Besides being of far better quality, being able to allow other Vimeo members the ability to download the actual source material is the biggest advantage I can see.

I officially don't have access to Vimeo any further and must use VPN...

Grazie, this probably wouldn't work for a project, but if you ever have a client who needs to host a volume of videos, password protected, my company has used Brightcove with great success. Videos play instantly, high quality playback, pleasing video players, very satisfied. Monthly/Yearly fee.

Thanks for the Brightcove info. Filed away!

@Grazie Have both YouTube and Vimeo accounts and their security facilities are very similar. Both allow unlisted public videos that do not show in searches but are accessible via a link that's private until you share it. If you really want only 10 specific people to access the video, they need to have logins, in which case you can limit access by specific login. Vimeo also has other features for workgroups collaboration but I think you need a paid account for that. The big differences between Vimeo and YouTube are quality options and storage quotas. Vimeo has no vp9 but directly supports downloading (if you authorize it) in all the usual avc formats as well as the original format such as hevc. YouTube storage is unlimited for free accounts while Vimeo free accounts are limited to 500MB per week of upload space and up to 5GB total account storage. Other important differences to me are that unlike YouTube, Vimeo allows videos to be replaced w/o losing stats or the original link and the more advanced Vimeo storage plans cover copyright royalties while even the basic service does no advertising inserts. The big YouTube standout is its massive user base. Lately it's been my practice to double post public stuff to both with a link in the YouTube description to the downloadable Vimeo version. I tend to put stuff I share for syndication on Vimeo and distribute private links to facilitate downloading by stations. Do the same for artists that want to download their performances as an alternative to using a google cloud drive.

Lost count of the number of clips I shot and uploaded to YouTube in HD before they supported viewing in HD. Which they totally crushed. With no way to fix it. I ended up blasting more than half of my content on YouTube and have been slowly replicating it onto Vimeo.
