Likelihood to Recommend
I'm pretty much going to be mentioning the same thing, but I'll paraphrase. For those looking for an editor that can as well save audio files (mainly .mp3 files), I would suggest EaseUS Video Editor. Make sure you have enough room in your hard drive to download this software program. I'm not saying that it'll take up a lot of room, but it's not a small software program either. With as much video editing and as many video files as I save, you'll definitely need the room. One thing I forgot to state, and I must, is that renaming the files is an added plus. You'll get to saving so many files, and the next thing you know you'll ask yourself questions such as, "What did I save this file for?" Another question that comes to mind is, "Why didn't I have use the automatic timer?" I don't think I had the opportunity to check and see if I could set the timer myself or not. If that's not a feature, it would be an excellent one.

If you're a small company with one or two employees, I'm sure that Vimeo is great. When it comes to larger organizations and teams, they clearly are treating such customers stepmotherly. You need a basic account in order to be an admin on a Pro-plan team, but you only get basic support (3 days wait). The teams function is riddled with bugs and affects the whole experience. In this case, I would not recommend Vimeo at all.
Read full review Pros Saving what I record as an .mp3 audio file. Simple video editing. Simple exporting to the type of file I need and the size. Read full review User-friendly interface for administrators of the account and external viewers. Being able to easily navigate a new platform or software is ideal for anyone. Seamless sharing and embedding across many platforms. Vimeo is well-recognized so it makes it easy for other platforms to recognize Vimeo. The compatibility is outstanding. As an administrator of the account, being able to select viewing privileges may seem like a basic function, but it's so necessary right now with how heavy our organization is utilizing the platform. We can mass upload content early and only release it for the public over time by simply changing it to a public video. Read full review Cons Have the capability to have some features online. Automatic saving of back up files in case the program crashes. Longer countdown, 5 instead of 3. Read full review Price - For the full featureset of Vimeo, you will be paying $900 a year as of 2020, and this is expected to only go up over time. Thankfully, Vimeo offers lower tiers with less functionality, and most people will not need the unlimited streaming viewers or whopping 7 TB of storage that you get for the highest level of membership. But it is still a premium price for a premium service. "Suggested" Algorithm - The equivalent of YouTube's suggested videos feature is the Vimeo Staff Picks, which recommends curated content from their team of editors. While this content generally has a high level of production, it is not especially relevant to the video you are watching, or to your watch history as a user. I rarely watch suggested videos in Vimeo. Search - The Vimeo search page is beautiful, having huge thumbnails of videos with a clean, visually-appealing layout. However, the results themselves leave much to be desired. When I search for "jung" to try to find videos on Swiss psychologist C. G. Jung, of the first 18 results, not a single result is actually about C. G. Jung. On Youtube, the first 14 results are all about Jung. When I search for "c. g. jung" on Vimeo I find a number of relevant results, so it's not that the videos are not available in Vimeo. Rather, the search algorithm is not returning relevant results. Read full review Usability
The customization options are vast and very easy to utilize. While there can be a slight learning curve for some advanced features, it is not so steep that it takes a long time to figure out. Support is great at guiding you through anything that might be confusing to you as well

Terrible support. When I subscribed to Premium we were guaranteed support. However, after the first e-mail I received from them, I never heard from them again. I sent several emails over the course of a couple of weeks acknowledging that due to covid, I did not expect a miracle overnight and that I was keen to work on the issue with them. I have not heard from customer service at all. This is very disappointing. We lost customers due to the poor quality of the livestreams and were left to sort the issue out without their help.

As I've previously stated, EaseuS Video Editor can also be used to as an alternative for Zoom. The only thing is that not everyone has this software program because Zoom presented itself more as the video recording software of choice. Zoom was as well the one the majority of us in the public was more aware of. One main advantage EaseUs Video Editor has over Zoom is, and I'll state this repeatedly, editing. I can with any videos with EaseUs edit more with easily and effortlessly. Overall, I've had to after converting any Zoom meetings edit and make them a better quality with EaseUS.

YouTube was the platform we primarily used previously, after having restrictions and having locked out of a couple of accounts we needed a better platform. We also lost some of our videos. We also have an internal app to track client videos and Vimeo supported it better. With the increased storage and the number of videos we create, we decided Vimeo would be better.
Read full review Return on Investment Doesn't automatically save a backup in case the software crashes. Ability to do easy editing. Ability to extract audio from a video file. Read full review It allows clients to serve a massive amount of video content within an LMS without eating up disk space or sacrificing bandwidth. The overall cost is very low compared to other tools and there is no 'pay per view' style unstable pricing. The tool has allowed students in other countries to access content faster. NEGATIVE - the upload limits per week, especially on the basic/pro accounts are too restrictive. Read full review ScreenShots EaseUS Video Editor Screenshots
