What do you like best?
If you´re looking for a reliable video hosting provider, look no further, Vimeo is the right tool for you. I love to bits the fact that Vimeo doesn´t impose advertisements on my videos. Furthermore, I´m so happy that Vimeo enables me to use a great arsenal of advanced options: I can protect my videos privacy, so that they´re only seen on the domains I choose; I can disable Vimeo´s logo, so that the video player looks like a white label tool! I can also add the function for increasing or decreasing the speed of my videos, and I can choose to place any thumbnail as the beginning and end for my videos. I love you Vimeo!!!
What do you dislike?
I know that Vimeo is the greatest video tool I´ve ever found. Nevertheless, there´s a thing I don´t really like about Vimeo: when I´m on the control panel to enable or disable options such as adding the wide screen widget or adding the widgets for the video title and user name over the video, I have to enable them one by one, and save the changes one by one. It would be great if I could first choose all the widgets I want to enable or disable, and then just confirm these changes once at the end.
Recommendations to others considering the product
I love Vimeo because It´s a great video hosting service at the right price. Nonetheless, I have a suggestion for you: it´s really annoying that, every time that I want to enable a function (like adding the complete screen option, enabling my username on the screen, disabling Vimeo´s logo, etc.) I have to confirm that I want to enable or disable that option. It would be better if I could select all of the options that I want to enable or disable, and then I just click the CONFIRM button only once.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Serious workers (either freelance workers or enterprises) need their own video hosting that makes them look professional when they share their videos with current and prospect clients. If they share videos that are stored on YouTube, they don´t look really professional because all of their videos will have YouTube´s logo; however, if they share their videos on a player that doesn´t show a third party logo (like YouTube), then they´ll look really professional. This is a serious business problem that Vimeo solves!
