Vimeo Aggregated Reviews
That’s nice. AV1 currently takes forever to encode, we are talking seconds per a video frame, but it’s royality-free and has amazing compression to quality ratio. I’m glad to see Vimeo supporting it
We’ve given the vimeo review thing a try and while it’s OK, it lacks back end features like versioning and folder organisation which is a no go for us since some projects we have 22 edits of things, which then once you get onto version 2 or 3 starts to get really messy on Vimeo.
I am on a massively fast connection and Vimeo still sucks balls. It has sucked balls in every country I have ever used it. It is a cancer of bad video streaming.
I fucking love Vimeo as a professional. It’s easy to upload and share cuts, it’s easy for clients to download cuts, you can customize embedding so it fits the style of my portfolio and just has a cleaner UI and look overall. If you want to showcase your work it just has a better level of polish. If you want your video to catch on in any way however then you need to use Youtube. Vimeo = Presentation YT = Social and Sharing
Vimeo is higher quality hence the buffering issues.
I think it should come down to your objectives. If you are looking for higher quality, and a more professional environment, Vimeo. But here are some differences between Vimeo vs Youtube:
If you’re looking for the reach, Youtube is the second largest search engine after Google and it’s owned by Google so chances are if you optimize well and have a good video, it could rank on Google searches for relevant keywords.
Youtube is free and Vimeo you have to pay
Vimeo has no ads! Youtube’s videos are littered with them
Vimeo is more a tool and service. It’s great for rough cuts, delivery, embeds, and has some neat pay per view and subscription video services. It’s ad free so nothing to distract your clients or interrupt them but you do have to pay for it.
Long story short, YouTube if you want to make money with videos you’re making; Vimeo if you already get paid to make videos and need somewhere to host them for whatever reason; and you don’t care for organic views.
Depends on use. There’s no harm in using both. Vimeo appears more professional and people often say it has better (less) compression than YouTube. Whereas the obvious benefit of YouTube is the wider potential reach.
Personally I tend to use only Vimeo for my professional work, but I’ll put personal projects (short films, etc) on both

As a web agency we never could and never will be able to escape the urge of building things.
Among million other things we played with an idea of text-based games and the last piece that was missing was the story itself. So via in-house outreach platform we found two established writers that believed in the project and agreed to participate.
Shout out to Richard Abbott who wrote Fraud on Thetis and Eva Pohler who sent us a huge draft we are still reading through.
At some point we realised that list building, fetching contact details & outreach tech work just as well for b2b lead generation
Once, we fell in love with ecommerce, because of short feedback cycles on marketing & development efforts.
Today we ship into production inhouse SaaS project - AVOKADO - the web app for learning languages with flash cards.
The year after we built it we realised how long is the road map ahead & what resources we'd need to promote it and decided to put it on hold.
One day as we ship GRIN tech v3.0 into production we'll distrupt the language learning market with Avokado.
