Re: Vimeo now has a 'live' streaming service

Sorry for my limited description. Too much post work today. Brain fried. Vimeo, according to Vimeo, doesn't provide any player that will play multiple videos in one player. Not sure why other than my suspicion that Vimeo is limiting their bandwidth to reduce the load on their servers. But that's just me being a glass half empty guy.

One video at a time tends to work well.

Re: Vimeo now has a 'live' streaming service

We upgraded (downgraded?) our Vimeo Business account to Vimeo Live (turns out we didn't need the Business limits). The reason we went with Vimeo for Live is because our apps for Roku (100,000 subscribers) and Apple TV are both already powered by the Vimeo API. It's more efficient to use Vimeo to stream to our site, then it's immediately available to all our viewers on our branded platforms as well. We plan to incorporate Vimeo Live into our TV apps as well, once they make the API available (which they say is coming.)

We simulcast the stream to both Vimeo Live and YouTube Live. (Screw FB and their TOS.)

I do agree, the Live hours they allocated aren't enough for the money, though for our current-use they are fine. We picked it up specifically for a half-hour talk show format that won't come near the 5 hours they provide.

Re: Vimeo now has a 'live' streaming service

I used Vimeo for a stream last week via Wirecast. It was really user friendly and strightforward. A little light on the features but it did everything I needed it to do.

Re: Vimeo now has a 'live' streaming service

Is Vimeo Live going to give the same ambient music rubbish that FB and YT are giving Nate??

Re: Vimeo now has a 'live' streaming service

FWIW: Our quality control viewer watched both the YouTube and Vimeo streams from within our office and it turns out they both had the same 5-second delay from action to viewing. (Pretty darn good, imho.)

If you are using You Tube Live do they physically stop the stream if they detect any music or do they do much the same as an uploaded video clip?
Youtube re-encodes as you stream. You'll be instantly hit with a strike and your stream will be geographically restricted instantly. Just don't do it, it's not worth risking your account.
