I’ve heard about Vimeo occasionally (including seeing it in my Mac web design application named Sandvox), but I hadn’t tried to find out what it is. I look Vimeo up in the following quoted web page and learn this in short “Vimeo (/ˈvɪmioʊ/) is a video-sharing website in which users can upload, share and view videos. Vimeo was founded in November 2004 by Jake Lodwick and Zach Klein.” The source is here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vimeo.
“As of December 2013, Vimeo attracts over 100 million unique visitors per month and more than 22 million registered users. Fifteen percent of Vimeo’s traffic comes from mobile devices. As of February 2013, Vimeo accounted for 0.11% of all Internet bandwidth, following fellow video sharing sites YouTube and Facebook. The community of Vimeo includes indie filmmakers and their fans. The Vimeo community has adopted the name “Vimeans”, meaning a member of the Vimeo community, usually one who is active and engaged with fellow users on a regular basis. The White House posts high-definition versions of its broadcasts to Vimeo.”
Since August 2010, all videos are encoded into H.264 for HTML5 support. All videos uploaded before were re-encoded. Non-Plus users can upload up to 500 MB of videos per week, and up to one HD video per week (additional HD videos uploaded within the same week are encoded to SD).”
