Vimeo is a video hosting and sharing site. Users can upload high-definition video that plays in a gorgeous wide-screen player with minimalist controls. One thing that sets it apart from other services is that it was one of the first sites to offer HD video. It also gives video creators the option to let registered Vimeo users download the original file to their hard drive for offline viewing.
Vimeo is also a social network, with a friends and subscription service, along with a way to both rate and share videos. This information goes into a new feed that you can monitor, helping you discover new and interesting videos that your Vimeo friends are enjoying.
In late 2008 Vimeo launched its long-awaited Plus service, which removes the site's advertisements, and jumps up the number of HD videos users can upload, along with their weekly upload cap.
