Vimeo's live streaming platform delivers a full HD viewing experience ad-free with custom branding and graphics straight from your browser. You can use chat, polls, and moderated Q&A to grab your viewers’ attention while simulcasting to social and apps or RTMP.

As the industry standard for online video hosting, Vimeo allows you to host, manage, and share your videos in HD, or even 4K HDR, all from the Vimeo website. No matter what type of plan you’re on, from Free to Enterprise, Vimeo never put ads before, during, or after your video. Period.

But Vimeo lets you go beyond just watching video with a new suite of interactive tools.

Choose from sticky hotspots or informational overlays to produce shoppable videos, training quizzes or brand marketing videos.

Vimeo lets users publish content across Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and other social media networks. It includes a centralized dashboard, which allows businesses to gain insight into content engagement, conversions, and more via analytics. Plus, it integrates with various many of the applications you use such as Asana, Dropbox, Figma, Google Drive, HubSpot, Marketo,, Adobe Premiere, and Slack.

Vimeo pro is more than a video hosting platform

I've used Vimeo for a few years now and it has greatly increased my business's professionalism on my videos and how clients and potential customers can view and interact with my videos.

Pros

Vimeo Pro is not cheap, but it gives you a lot of great features. You have 7TB of space to upload videos, you have great tools to control where your content can be viewed and saved, there are review tools for client videos , online video creation tools and a video capture plugin for your browser so you can make your own screen capture videos. There's also access to live stream studio, which is professional level streaming software.

Cons

It is expensive if you're not using all of the tools regularly. The cost comes out to $75/month which is much more expensive than 'free' which is what hosting videos on YouTube would cost.

Reasons for Switching to Vimeo

The main reason that made me use Vimeo Pro is that I needed a good live streaming tool for streaming events.

Professional and easy to understand

Overall, I think Vimeo enhances professionalism if you work with video for a living.

Pros

Vimeo's features are top notch. I love the download feature, personalized password for private videos, and screen capture options. Interface is professional and easy to understand.

Cons

The subscription is a little off-putting since you can still get by without the premium features, however they are very helpful options when video sharing (in my case, I use them for auditions to casting directors). Also heard the download option is not available on the app.

They provide false information and hope you don't churn

Reviewed on 16/11/2021

Pros

Easy to use and reliable. We haven't had any technical issues in years

Cons

It is really annoying that they refuse to send receipts via email, even though they say they will. This is a cheeky way to reduce their churn.

Video Sharing Platform-Great for Training Employees

Reviewed on 5/10/2022

Pros

We like that we can upload videos and password protect them for only our employees. It makes it very easy for us to upload training resources for our employees to watch where ever they are. The editing tools are also very user friendly.

Cons

The monthly cost is a little high for our uses but it is one of the lower price points in this arena.

Reasons for Switching to Vimeo

Restrictions and password protection was best on Vimeo for the price point.

Amazing software, it doesn't disappoint.

Amazing software, it doesn't disappoint.

Pros

Uploading the videos and having to host them easily and plug them in to other websites like wix and others is honestly the best features of a software you're ever going to get.

Cons

I don't like that my users cannot download the video easily on my site.
