YouTube vs. Vimeo

12 YouTubeVimeo.jpgWhen it comes to uploading videos online, YouTube and Vimeo are the two most popular around. YouTube is quantity over quality. If you upload the same video to both YouTube and Vimeo at the same resolution, the Vimeo video looks better because of the higher bitrate. The Vimeo audio sounds better with 320 Kbps. Vimeo’s business model is quite different than YouTube. After verifying your YouTube account, you can upload videos with up to 12 hours of playback or 128GB file size. Vimeo has 4 levels from single user 5GB/week, 250GB every year to unlimited live viewers with 7TB total storage. YouTube is Google owned, with a community of over 1 billion users and the world’s second most widely used search engine. Vimeo offers more privacy options and you can replace your video with a newer version without having to change the video URL or stats. YouTube allows you to add links, annotations, captions, and subtitles to your videos and offers live streaming. Vimeo offers “Vimeo on Demand”. A platform where you can sell videos directly to viewers. #YouTube and #Vimeo are both excellent platforms for your WordPress videos. Depending on what you are trying to do with your videos, one platform could be better for you than the other. #Showbride and
