Nope. Unlike other platforms, Vimeo will never put an ad before, during, or after your videos. That means no banners, no overlays, no pre-roll, no post-roll, no California roll — nothing. No ads also means that your snowboard brand is never associated with, say, an arthritis medication.

Definitely. Vimeo lets you embed your videos absolutely anywhere (without ads!). Not to mention, every video you share has advanced privacy controls like password protection, so you can control exactly which judgment-free friends are able to see that 2am-karaoke video (and which employers, can’t).

Admittedly we’re a bit biased, but upgrading beyond Basic is one of the best decisions you’ll ever make (along with saving for retirement and ordering dessert).

You betcha. While other platforms offer limited customization, and often require development knowledge (gulp), Vimeo gives you easy ways to customize your player. This way, if you run a design firm, and you designed a custom logo, you can swap ours out.
