Vimeo Plus Members can Upload 5 GB Per File
Vimeo is definitely a giant provider of online video hosting service as it managed to survive against YouTube. By now Vimeo has attracted many budding filmmakers and more of artistic crowd. And to add more charm to the service Vimeo Plus users are now allowed uploading up to 5 GB file at once. This is sure to attract the filmmakers that want to upload longer files for experiment purpose. Vimeo says this feature was long requested and brought up on demand.
Blake Whitman from Vimeo announced –
A frequent request from Vimeo Plus members has been the ability to use your full 5 GB weekly quota for one video. Previously, terribly boring and uncool technical issues have prevented us from achieving this,
Now, we’re proud to say that we’ve made a big breakthrough, and 5 GB uploads per file are here! This update is great for many reasons: it means filmmakers can upload full-feature films in HD, parents can upload an entire soccer game, and your Aunt Martha can upload 2.5 hours of HD video of her cat taking a nap!, he added
This feature is in beta for now and will work only with new Ajax uploader, not with flash-based or any desktop uploader. Till now, Vimeo Plus account holders had the same 5 GB weekly storage quota, but with upload files no larger than 2 GB. Regular users have the same 500 MB per week limit. YouTube does not have a hard file size limit and also videos cannot cross the quota of 15 minutes length.
