Vimeo’s latest advancements come in the form of an optimization of what already exists: their mobile website and On Demand platforms. Boasting that over 1/3 of their monthly traffic can be accredited to their mobile site, the new redesign aims to make it easier for users to find and view content, as well as connect with the community. By the same token, they have also updated the interface for the Vimeo On Demand homepage, making it look and feel a little bit more like platforms we’re used to. Click through to see the new improvements. More »

As promised, the team behind VHX is steadily working to change the independent film distribution landscape. Veteran experience in populist collaboration and the building of Vimeo means VHX understands web video, audience interaction, and tracking social trends. Can it really work? The likes of NPR and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl (as director) think so, joining the ranks of non-fiction VHX-powered releases like Indie Game: The Movie. VHX has also empowered documentary filmmakers spotlighting the ‘hacker’ community Anonymous, and the creators of the controversial BitTorrent tracker The Pirate Bay — even with the latter doc’s simultaneous free release through YouTube and BitTorrent.

The internet is mostly an uncensored place, and this can either be a blessing or a curse depending on the person, situation, and content. If you’ve been noticing a little “Not Yet Rated” or “All Audiences” next to the name on videos you’ve been watching on Vimeo, you might be feeling a bit out of the loop. Vimeo is extremely lenient on the type of content allowed on the site, and for good reason: art is very subjective. That doesn’t mean, however, that all art is appropriate for all audiences at all times of the day, and as a way to help you identify the type of content you’re about to watch, Vimeo is introducing Content Ratings for its videos.

Content creators have a few ways they can choose to monetize their media. And while some manner of high profile and hype are needed to make a true self-distribution success story (the major caveat inherent to self-distro), the possibility is there for any of us. After about 20,000 years, Vimeo is finally putting the power to get paid into the hands of Plus/Pro subscribers (just kidding Vimeo, we love you), though it isn’t entirely clear whether their upcoming Direct-to-Audience system will be available for Vimeo Pro users only. This is a likelihood, because it adds considerable incentive to opt for Pro’s $200 annual plan over Plus’s $60/year subscription. Until recently, we were under the impression we would have to wait for the “early 2013″ release of their native services to sell/rent on Vimeo — as it turns out, the ability to monetize content beyond discretionary donations (tip-jar) is not only available to us at this very moment, but actually has been for several months. It’s called Cleeng PLAY and the details are below. More »

More than a few of you have probably heard of Vimeo, the video sharing site that caters to artists and creatives (and also runs a film festival). For the most part, it’s the anti-YouTube, with minimal advertising (none if you’re a Plus user). YouTube doesn’t always play nice with video files, and I’ve found that videos uploaded to Vimeo tend to look better. Unfortunately, actually uploading a video can be hit or miss at times (again, even if you’re a Plus member), so Vimeo is introducing a few new features — like Dropbox integration — to make getting your videos online easier and more reliable. You can watch their video introducing the features below. More »

Filmmaker-friendly video sharing service Vimeo just launched Vimeo PRO, a service designed for small businesses looking for high-quality, branding-free video hosting. Vimeo PRO runs $199/year for 50GB of storage and includes up to 250,000 plays; another $199 will expand the offering by an additional 100,000 plays or 50GB of storage. While this new offering will work well for many small businesses — especially in a portfolio context — I have a number of questions about it, and I think there’s something missing from Vimeo’s slate of offerings.
