"Fake HD" on Vimeo

This might be common knowledge, but I just figured it out on my own so...

If you export your video clip using the HD specs (1280x720) and upload it to Vimeo you will get a much larger view than if you use the SD widescreen suggestion. Of course, Vimeo thinks it is HD and labels it as such and it won't look quite as good as a real HD clip, but I think the larger size makes for a nicer presentation. What do you all think?

You be the judge. I've uploaded two versions of the same video, standard SD widescreen...

I have to agree. The larger looks great! Good find.

Ditto here, Michael - bigger is better, with improved resolution (assuming the user's PC and bandwidth can keep up).

Thanks for the tip!

Regards, Michael
