Vimeo, share your HD content with the world

October 13, 2021

I just learned that Vimeo is now accepting user created content in HD resolution:

The resulting video quality is really quite amazing. Streaming is fast and extremely good looking.

Uploading files is really simple and the interactive interface provide really nice feedback for those large files you may want to upload.

Look at the following screen capture where you can see that my 192MB file is 33% uploaded and will take 21 more minute to upload:

If you have HD content you want to share this is one easy option.

Once your upload is done Vimeo will convert it before it can be viewed online. Due to the high volume my video was placed in a wait queue:

When the video get to the conversion engine you receive the following screen indicating of the actual conversion progress:

Once the conversion is completed your video can be viewed online by everyone or only by people you select. In my case I have selected to make it public so you can view the result here (540p) and here (720p).

About Vimeo (source wikipedia):

Vimeo is a video-sharing site (owned by Connected Ventures) which launched in November 2004. The site supports embedding and video downloads, and allows user-commenting on each video page. Users must register to upload content. Registered users may also create a profile and upload small user pictures as their avatars.

The main difference between the site and other competing sites such as YouTube is that Vimeo pertains to user-created videos, of a friend and family nature. No pornography, TV shows, music videos, movies or anything not created by the user can be uploaded.
