Cinesend is a MUCH slicker platform. It integrates well with our website, and provides a much better branded experience. It costs slightly less, and provides much better access to information and user control.

If you have a reasonable level of website knowledge in your company, and gross over $50,000 per year, [I feel] it is a no-brainer to go with CineSend (or almost any other competitor) over Vimeo.

Youtube does not have the ability to livestream from anything other than your computer unless you have more than 1,000 subscribers. Vimeo on the other hand allow you to livestream from mobile, camera etc, you just have to subscribe.

Wistia does not have livestream capability.

We are currently looking at Dacast as an alternative option to Vimeo for many obvious reasons. However, we have not tried Dacast yet, we will be doing a free trial next week. While they offer a lower storage that Vimeo, and cost about 400 more per year than Vimeo, they offer 24/7 live support, which to us, is paramount. So, we are willing to pay for their great customer support alone. They also have more sophisticated online tools than Vimeo. Once we have tried them, personally, I can update this section of my review.

Vimeo leaves ClickMeeting in the dust when comparing compatibility on social media and other platforms. Vimeo has also been proven to be much more customizable. In ClickMeeting for example, video formatting may be changed if a certain font is not recognized by ClickMeeting. It will find the closest font style to that in your document (unless you use a PDF). That issue has not presented itself in Vimeo. While ClickMeeting is much more tech-savvy, Vimeo is true to the services it provides without any hiccups.

We publish our films to Vimeo and YouTube, but our films come first to Vimeo by way of Frame.io, which is our client editing platform. The videos move over from Frame.io to Vimeo effortlessly, with longer films moving slowly and shorter films moving quickly. After the films are in Vimeo, the tags added, the description added etc... we then share to YouTube. Compared to YouTube, Vimeo is AMAZING! YouTube is super cumbersome to use and not intuitive. Vimeo is the opposite in the best way, Vimeo is easy to use and easy to set up.

For our business applications, the primary competitor to Vimeo is YouTube, although Dailymotion is arguably a competitor for some of our business applications, though not others. The most complete full-featured competitor for our business use cases is YouTube, and I think Vimeo stacks up very favorably against YouTube. Vimeo has much better UI and design, and overall a much higher production quality of videos. YouTube became notorious for having a low quality of user comments, although their filtering has gotten much better in recent years. Still, Vimeo gives the appearance of being a luxury, premium, boutique video delivery service. Whether it is for screencasting, product demos, instructional videos, or other content related to our business, Vimeo is preferred every time for its sleek elegance and above-average UI design.

However, there are some areas where Vimeo fails. One is search, and another is discovery. For consumer-facing videos aimed at garnering a wide audience, YouTube may be the better choice, as there are more chances for people to find your videos on there. Vimeo simply does not have good search and recommendation features for connecting videos to each other.

We also use Youtube to host our videos, but rely principally on Vimeo for hosting them to our site and sharing them with others. Vimeo has a great feature where it allows you to update a video if you ever make changes to it. While the video file changes, the URL and all embeds created from that video remain the same. It works like magic, and is something that YouTube has never had.

Vimeo is best suited for internal video sharing and proofing as well as video storage for creatives, such as video editors and marketers. I think most organizations who need a simple, lightweight access-controlled video sharing platform should use Vimeo since it is easy enough to learn and implement.

We've tried YouTube in the past, and it's just not as good as Vimeo. Vimeo is a software that's built for professionals. And while it doesn't have the "marketability" of Youtube, it looks and FEELS better than a traditional YouTube setting, which is quickly becoming a platform that's phased out of our industry.

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.

The only competitor we've used to Vimeo is YouTube. Both offer embedded players, basic view counts, etc... but Vimeo has (in my opinion) easier customization for embed options, security features, and thumbnail selection. Youtube has a better recommendation system and the ability for videos to be randomly seen. In our experience, Vimeo is great for an internal tool for storage and embedding and internal sharing, and YouTube is great for a social media platform.

In higher ed we have a couple of options that integrate directly with our LMS (Blackboard/Canvas) that are comparable. Kaltura is outstanding but it's very expensive whereas I've found Viddler(and YouTube) to be much more simplistic. I've worked with other tools that want to charge based on the number of views or how much bandwidth you demand but I have always found that to be erratic. For budgeting purposes, I prefer to you just a sent annual fee like Vimeo.

  • Zoom
We use Zoom for a lot of recordings (webinars, videos, etc.) but it doesn't stack up to Vimeo Pro in terms of features and functionality. So we just use Zoom for recording purposes now.

In my opinion, Vimeo Pro beats these competing products hands down because it has customizable features and just for video. The other services treat your videos only as files (indistinguishable from other file types except by their extension and preview). The ability to offer passwords, control playback speed’s, get review comments, and share quickly between these platforms (when necessary), makes Vimeo Pro my favorite.

Wistia's pricing is so weird. They charge you monthly, and by how many videos you host.

Vimeo has a flat fee, with an upload limit (which I was close to hitting once in 4 years).

Wistia has better tracking and organization, and it's cleaner. But Wistia's embed is pretty heavy on a site.
Vimeo's embed was highly customizable, and I (the developer) was able to make my own version of the video player with it's own sets of features.

Vimeo by far surpasses Dropbox. There aren't many options with Dropbox, and essentially it's used to store your videos. Although they just rolled out a new feature to allow timecoded edits, which is something Vimeo is lacking.
Frame.io is the best software to use for sending clients videos to comment on. You can write and draw on a still from the video and get immediate timecoded edits-- this is something Vimeo doesn't offer. But I can't use Frame.io as a good showcase of my work, it's simply to just get feedback. Vimeo is best for really showing everything you have in a clean way.

For the reasons previously mentioned, both tools are useful ways for companies to get their message out to the public via video, but Vimeo Pro has a more professional approach with higher quality video, which is why we use it to display our internal and external videos. It's the best way to look like a professional to your audience.

Vimeo is more of a pure video streaming service, but G-suite and Dropbox have better pure file sharing capabilities. Vimeo is a superior player, though and also does provide a easy platform for storing and sharing professional quality videos. The Pro option also gives ample storage for those in need of sharing a large volume or higher quality videos.
