One thing you may have noticed until recently on the blog was the absence of the usual “click through to YouTube if you can’t see this”….. so we have a confession to make, it has taken us a long time to get around to YouTube but we are there now.

We initially found working with YouTube a frustrating and confusing struggle, we ended up with three different accounts because Mum has a Google account, Dash has a Google account and after spending a lot of time cross-eyed trying to work out why YouTube wanted us to have more accounts we nearly gave up. I am sure there is a technical information but, we made it in the end! …

Vimeo vs. YouTube – A Confession

We have found one an alternative, one where we also host the videos for our blog, it suits us, and would like to introduce you to Vimeo. It has free and paid options and after using it for a while – here’s what we think.

Advantages to Vimeo:-

  • Easy to use
  • Basic Vimeo is free (500mb a week)
  • Video school helps you improve your videos
  • Options for free and modestly priced music tracks
  • Web site is easy to navigate
  • We feel happy there.

Diadvantages to Vimeo:-

  • Only one. Unless you are on a paid rate, your video joins the queue of eager beavers all wanting to upload – this can take a while.

Youtube is a heap of fun for looking, listening, and finding How-To’s, but we are finding that for easy access and storing our blog videos Vimeo works really well.

    We joined the other day and Have to totally agree on Vimeo over You Tube. You Tube wanted us to have a Google+ acct and no way are we going to do that unless we are forced to by Gmail.

    Thats interesting as we have never had the slightest problem with YouTube. I wonder if it has to do with where you live and the ISP’s.
    We will check it out

    I’ve known for a long time that Vimeo is superior to YouTube – but I didn’t know they had a Video School! I will have to send my human over to check that out.

    we have also used Vimeo…and will now work on using it even more. You Tube is soooooooooooooo complicated, restrictive with rotten music options and we know Vimeo is better with just have to listen for a while to find stuff you like/want. Pawsome review

    Yeah there’s also one other drawback to vimeo – the buffer time. Often you have to let the entire video play through first and then rewind and watch so it doesn’t stutter. Other than that, yes we agree – supeior!
