From Youtube to Vimeo Pro!

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: I used to get paid by YouTube back in 2015 but I had signed up for Vimeo Pro for free. I do personally like the platform on Vimeo better than YouTube and Vimeo feels more hip and young. It is for those who are into high resolution graphics and videomaking. It is not like YouTube where the videos are created from smartphone tools. It is for professional videomakers, animators, and motion graphics artists. It is the main reason why I joined Vimeo Pro, but now, it is turning into a career.

Pros:

My company is focused on creating graphic designs and motion graphics to promote my artistic products, and Vimeo Pro is the perfect way to make my products promoted online. During the pandemic, I was furloughed from my employer so I decided to use my time to promote my online business. I had it established in 2015 but I was working for my employer for the last four years and did not have time to make proper sales. Instead of just sales, Vimeo Pro has helped me create an online community for those interested in my brand. It has been a lot of fun and the features on Vimeo Pro always excite me.

Cons:

My least favorite feature is the high costs involved in maintaining my online presence on Vimeo Pro. MY favorite feature is the videomaking tool which I do have to pay a monthly subscription for, but there are so many costs involved. It was like starting my own channel by paying Vimeo to keep maintaining my videos. It has been an expensive journey for me as a member of Vimeo Pro.

Easy to distribute my videos to my clients and managing team folders

5.0 last month New

Comments: Quality videos and marketing strategies creating a more connected and productive team in the long run.

Pros:

I can easily engage several teams on the platform and I have the freedom to switch between them. No worries of background disturbances, videos can be mute to avoid them. Also, it brings stability in performance and our overall goal. Creates beautiful presentations which came be customized to make them more appealing. In the case where files in question are too large or contain parts which are not relevant, trimming is possible. This improves efficiency in the final results. It is generally a very easy to use tool.

Cons:

Well, no cons experienced so far. Work is always done to expectations.

Quality screening but need more options

4.0 4 months ago

Comments: I have been using Vimeo for a while but not able to continue to pay monthly fee. So I lost some video when I stop playing monthly fee and I don't get to choose which video that I can keep. If a platform that support artists, please offering something that artists can afford and the options that they can choose.
I love the idea that showcasing some great video works and maybe the platform and artists can both monetize the art works.

Pros:

1. the quality of the images are higher than Youtube 2. More options for sharing the video 3. You can replace the video with the same sharing link, easy for update 4. It becomes a more reliable platform for professionals. It works towards helping filmmakers to find jobs and career development. 5. No annoying commercials all over the place.

Cons:

1. Monthly fee is high, it becomes a financial burden. 2. No option for choosing the video on your account if you decide not to paying the monthly fee. 3. Not enough audiences and pay if you want to sale your video on the platform.

Complete solution to create and manage your streaming platform or VOD site

4.0 last month New

Comments: Vimeo stands in to solve the rapidly evolving threats and attack in the video streaming platforms. The experience is definitely the best.

Pros:

It is easy to add live streams on the platform. It gives the full freedom to customize the dashboard and allow viewers to navigate within the platform without closing the video. Adding content for watching later is possible bringing flexibility and efficiency. Scalability is a key feature in Vimeo, it is capable of supporting multiple users without glitches. Security and reliability is also present in their services making it the best tool to work with.

Cons:

With huge protection against unauthorized access and user friendliness, Vimeo deserves five star rating. It has shown the best features and operation.
