5 Reasons to Choose Vimeo Instead of YouTube

Mashable- YouTube's clearly the big dog. At 800 million unique visitors per month, with roughly 72 hours of content being uploaded each minute, it's by far the most used video-sharing platform on the web. (It doesn't hurt that it's owned by Google, either.) (Services, Vimeo, Web, YouTube)

I still love Youtube

I do too...
... but ONLY with adblock+.

I had pretty much completely left Youtube until I found out I could finally get rid of all those annoying adds using the Chrome plug-in/extension.

Youtube Options by spoi (yes, from their site) is the absolute best I have ever used. It even has direct download links to the mp4, webm, 3D option for those, and flv along with different quality options. The only thing it doesn't have is youtube thumbnail ratings, which has it's own extension

I never saw a Youtube ad in my life. I always used Adblock. :)

Vimeo is cool. But YouTube is simply... YouTube.

LOL @ #2's GIF.

The biggest problem is that Vimeo buffers way too often even on very fast connections.

Youtube has more content because it's more popular but the quality of image of Vimeo it's like 10 times higher. Gaming websites should use Vimeo better when making comparisons.

when its all professionals it becomes bland and souless sometimes, yea the occasional 4x hd nature documentary on vimeo are cool but they just dont have the same creative minded community that youtube has.

once payed subscriptions kill youtube maybe it will have a chance to rise.

I'd like to try other video streaming sites but most of channels i like is on YT. Sadly, I'd really like to switch now seeing as YT has been wonky for me recently. Sounds dont play at the start of some videos, and when fully downloaded, the video plays up to the point where the video freezes :L

It's all about content... and Youtube has more of it.

Quality>Quantity

Youtube may have more content but most of it is garbage that nobody wants to see.

You can literally find anything you want on youtube....I've never once considered the possibility of an alternate to youtube. Youtube isn't a fad. It will probably be around forever. Literally.
