Vimeo is a free service that allows you to upload and share video content. It is especially good for longer, high-definition videos.
Their platform uses HTML5 which enables them to host your video content at the highest quality with the fastest loading times available. This means that you can display your videos anywhere and they will perform at their best regardless of where they are viewed from.
They offer a completely free package as part of their service. However, a premium package offers support, upgraded storage and a vast array of customisation and interaction tools to take your videos to the next level, without any advertisements interfering with your audience’s experience, making it the choice alternative to YouTube for professional videographers.
