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. Now you can engage your viewers by adding interactive touchpoints to your videos that encourage viewers to engage more deeply with your content. 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.

Video platform for high quality videos

The interface is clean and logical. There is no unnecessary chatter to confuse the user. I liked that the platform is used mainly by people who know how to make content, so you can find quality content with good quality right here. The feeling itself is about the business environment. I use some of the materials out there that can't be found anywhere else and have crystal quality.

Pros

I like that it doesn't spoil the quality when uploading. The concept of the product is clear and specific. The content is usually quality. There are no annoying ads to tear up the videos. The platform provides options for customizing the account. It allows you to present yourself professionally and stand out in the best way, without imposing additional things around you. Users can see videos that are not present anywhere else.

Cons

Multiple videos cannot be uploaded at once. Loading the gallery from the phone is a bit slow. For unpaid users, space is limited, which is not the case in other video sharing platforms. There are significantly fewer users, but those who are there definitely know why they are there.

Decent video hosting with some minor caveats

Reviewed on 16/7/2019

Pros

Vimeo's main competitors like Wistia cost so much more and for small businesses, most can't afford Wistia. Vimeo has been a fine option for video hosting, good value for money.

Cons

We have clients from all over the world and we found out later on that some clients couldn't view the video's hosted on Vimeo. We found out that Vimeo is banned in some countries, while that's not really their fault per se, but it is a pain in the butt as we didn't really have alternative options for video hosting for those countries.

Alternatives Considered

Wistia

Reasons for Choosing Vimeo

We realised Amazon S3 wasn't optimized for delivering video content (yes, we could use their Elastic cloud front but we preferred going with a provider that specialised in video and handled all the video conversion elements which Amazon doesn't handle).

My experience has been poor. I’ve lost my temper with tech support many times. They just don’t get it, how it should work.

Pros

Ability to make folders with passwords.

Cons

Poor tech support, slow response to customer needs, crappy app and even after you remove it from a mobile device you get prompted every time you go to play a video to download the crappy app. Inability to navigate and do all the things you do on a full browser on mobile. Slow, slow results of large showcases or folders. Needs a way to load these first as a list instead of a million images that take forever to load if you have many showcases. I could go on. I pay for many accounts that we’ve had for years and I’m tired of paying money for lack of support.

Video hosting done right

Reviewed on 6/12/2022

Pros

I needed a way to restrict where my videos could be embedded. Vimeo is one of the few platforms that will actually do this by domain or hostname.

Cons

I wish livestreaming options were included at base levels. The livestream options make it too cost-ineffective compared to other platforms.

Alternatives Considered

YouTube

Reasons for Choosing Vimeo

As a teacher, I needed a way to restrict where my videos could be embedded. I only wanted them embedded in our LMS system. I did not want them publicly available for people to stumble upon on youtube or shared once they had the link. Vimeo allows for locking down distribution to my proprietary content to specific domains.
