Youtube still has 10min time limit.
Since you mentioned Vimeo - I think the best advantage of Vimeo is the community and the quality of material. I've seen many really great films on Vimeo, very few on Youtube - if they are there, they're burried in garbage.

Good to hear you're getting good playback again on YouTube.

The thing about Vimeo, although I love the community that's not significant to the people I show my uploaded video to. I'm not targeting the Vimeo community, I'm targeting clients, potential clients, showing work of artistic merit to people outside the Vimeo community.

After hearing those people respond with "It looks jittery, is it the way you shot it?" That's NOT what I want to present to the outside world. Not only does YouTube play back in the native frame rate of the uploaded file, it now plays at 1280x720 frame size.

People complain about the comments on YouTube but you can put any video comment area on moderate or completely off.

I do like the fact that Vimeo has password protection as some people I shoot for want to have control over who sees it. I also like the ability to download the source since, in some cases, I want the video to be available as a source for others. And yes, I like the fact that you can upload more than 10 minutes.

So for those features I'll put a specific video up an Vimeo as long as it's no more than 1 HD video a week. Everything else can go on YouTube.

Certainly if I want peer response I can put something on Vimeo but it becomes a very closed community if that's the primary purpose. If I need to show good 720p30 video to the public, YouTube seems better.

Keep in mind ExposureRoom doesn't have a 10 minute limit and also has password protection and there's no GB per week limit either. Who knows what their business model is though.
