Vimeo Plus

My Vimeo Plus membership is about to expire. For $59, I can't see myself renewing. Heck, at $29 I'm not sure I'd renew.

Like it or not, YouTube has won. It's free, has HD, embeds, and has just enough privacy controls (Vimeo lets you control on which sites your videos can be embedded, YouTube does not) that it's used instead of Vimeo.

What will I lose?

If you do not renew your membership, your account will revert to the feature set available to non-Plus Vimeo members. You will not lose any videos or channels/groups/albums that you created during your Plus membership, no need to worry. However, any videos you have set special embed options for will revert to the normal embed options for basic accounts. Your original source files will no longer be available for download 30 days after your Plus account expires.

Eh. Not worth it. $59's a lot of money. 😛

  1. I have no idea what the issue is, but I can't watch any Vimeo video through my internet connection at work. YouTube is no problem, but for Vimeo I just get the startup screen and nothing else. Kind of turned me off to them (even if it isn't their problem).

  2. The thing I like about vimeo over youtube (don't remember if it's a + feature or not) is that you can have >10 min videos. I've been doing videos of the presentations at one of the Phoenix developer groups and being able to upload it as one file is a huge plus. Other than that, youtube generally wins out.

  3. I'm sure you will be sorely missed in the vimeo community.

    Hardy har. Yeah, me and my three videos. 😉

    I just think Vimeo could use a plan perhaps between the two they have now - free or $59.
