[CNET]Vimeo's 'Video School' now in session

post #1 of 7

Video-sharing site Vimeo has rolled the cameras on its Vimeo Video School, a freely accessible section of the site devoted to movie-making tutorials for beginners and more-advanced videographers alike.
Launched earlier this week, the Video School expands on and organizes user-generated how-to and tips-and-tricks videos.

It features a Video 101 section, made up of Vimeo-produced clips about the basics; a DSLR Basics section, also Vimeo-produced and devoted to shooting video with digital single lens reflex cameras; and a Featured Lessons section, in which Vimeo staffers offer up teachings on a variety of topics, from composition fundamentals to storyboarding basics to how to make a good holiday video.

Vimeo is vastly superior to Youtube in every aspect. I wish more people would use it.

Why is that? Because of the unnecessary software you have to install to watch videos, that on YouYube would be no hassle?

What are you talking about? Vimeo uses flash for videos, just like Youtube.

-Vimeo's videos are better quality wise, although Youtube is catching up and getting better in this aspect.
-Vimeo doesn't have those crappy embedded google ads.
-Better/more mature community
-Vids on Vimeo download WAY faster than Youtube. This is especially noticeable when watching HD videos. Youtube is just downright slow at times. You won't see any hourglass/rotating dot symbols while the video loads at Vimeo.
-Vimeo's encoding process is superior. Youtube's encoder is extremely picky about each video specification and has been known to butcher people's uploads.
-Vimeo's an overall better looking site with a simpler and more streamlined design.

9 times out of 10, any amateur or professional filmmaker who cares about quality is going to choose Vimeo. If they care about reaching a larger audience or being "net-famous" they're going to use Youtube.

Eh, I had never been there till I read his list of pro's. I loaded up a video, 1280x720 HD and it never got over 160KB/sec and buffered or stuttered through the whole thing almost. So it seems to have the same problems as youtube when it comes to bandwidth. The video quality was much better though, I will give them that. On a 16/3 connection btw, so wasn't that.

Edit: Tried a few others, some would go up to around 400K/sec, others as low as 100/ sec throughout the whole video, buffering every 5 seconds.
