Do you Vimeo? YouTube? ViddYou? What do you use?

Asked by sethmedia (80 points ) October 19th, 2008

I’m a big Vimeo fan for all of my web streaming now, but what other sites are out there that you love? I have tried some random ones like Veoh and such, but why do you love the one you use? Share it with all of us.

I second Vimeo. Once they allow HD embeding they’ll be turbo awesome.

Sadly, nothing beats YouTube for exposure.

This is something I’ve been wondering too. And most of them have points that attract many users. Personally I still see YouTube being the number one site but on the second level are Vimeo and Viddler. I personally love Viddler because it originally had the timed video/text comments on a video player and was the first to have a customizable player. But with the recent news of Vimeo’s pro plan, I’m not sure. I’ve heard that Vimeo does HD videos nicely and that their videos are generally closer (in quality) to their original format. I’m not sure if Viddler has HD capabilities but one nice thing that they do offer is that a user can upload as many videos as they like, as long as the file itself is below 500MB.

Sadly I guess it’s still a “just depends” type of question.

Vimeo is really sexy. Youtube is good for critical mass but I try and use Vimeo wherever I can.

Youtube, Vimeo, Viddler, Blip.tv, Metacafe, Revver are the ones I use for my video distribution. I agree Vimeo does a really nice job with keeping the quality close to the original format.
