This sounds like the Office 365 Home subscription that I have for 79.99/year which gives all the software for up to 5 PCs/Macs, 5 tablets and 5 phones plus up to 1TB storage each for up to five users. It's a great deal for family use.

Noa sorry I don't have an answer to that question as I've never had the need to embed anything. I mostly work for TV or the corporate world. For corporate clients I just upload and their web people download and do the embedding into their own sites.

Re: Vimeo alternatives

For the record, I live in Indonesia and you cannot even access Vimeo here unless you use a VPN. So really, for me to post on Vimeo here means a majority of people I know here are blocked from seeing posted videos on Vimeo. Moral to the story...things could be worse.

Re: Vimeo alternatives

When I started doing video commercially about ten years ago I discovered Smugmug who are predominantly a site for hosting still photos but were then the only site where you could host 1080p video & then embed them on your own website. We used Smugmug to host our videos for several years before switching to Vimeo basically because the player can be nicely customised & uploading & management of videos was easier. There was nothing wrong with Smugmug just that Vimeo was a bit nicer.

Smugmug still offers video hosting along with still photo galleries but has never expanded the video option much & hosting is limited to 3GB or 20 minutes (whichever is larger).

Smugmug might be worth a look for those suffering Vimeo & YouTube problems. They offer a 14-day free trial. & the Basic plan is under $50/year.

Re: Vimeo alternatives

I don't thing Smugmug hosts their own videos anymore? I just checked and the only embedded videos I could find on their website where all from YouTube?

Smugmug originally hosted quite basic photo galleries but for a few years now have been offering very customisable websites as part of the photo hosting package so you can create your own photo oriented web site using their tools & can even sell your photos through your site.

You can still host video & photos on Smugmug & embed individual images or videos or whole photo galleries on your own site but you are also able to embed YouTube & Vimeo videos on your Smugmug website.

Yeah, I got a notice for a video I used where some kid was dancing. The music was live from the DJ, but it didn't matter. Ironically, I doubt they go after the guests who post the same.

An important question would be, did you use that dancing kid footage with live played music in one of your videos that is posted online to promote your business? Using music that is played in the background is just the same as using unlicensed commercial music in your video even if you bought the song online for personal use, I could record that music right from the DJ's mixer and have it sound as clear as the original song, from the moment I put it in one of my videos it becomes a form of advertisement.

When a guest posts it on vimeo they don't make any money from it but also there the owner of the song has to decide if they will allow it.

Re: Vimeo alternatives

I would also like to come to Noa's defense regarding Vimeo. I dropped my subscription for the same reasons. Playback issues, buffering, stuttering. Clients complained and I had the problem too. My download speed is 300 and my upload speed is 28. My bandwidth is great by American standards.

Re: Vimeo alternatives

I have been embedding one of my weddingvideos on my website from YouTube to test for a while, I just played that film from my website and it looked like 360P but if I clicked on the YouTube logo which took me the YouTube page it was HD quality.
Maybe it was a wrong setting again, don't know but the fact that the YouTube logo was so prominent on my mobile Phone I"m not looking into that direction anymore so still seachring and testing out other options.
