Convert and Upload DVD to Vimeo Recommended Video Formats
Most people are aware that YouTube is the leading video sharing giant on the web today, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it has everything. In fact, a lot of people prefer another popular video sharing service over YouTube, called Vimeo.
Vimeo is a video sharing platform that was launched in 2004 by a group of filmmakers. Since then, the platform has grown to over 14 million members – most of them artists in film, animation, music and other works of art – who’ve been able to use Vimeo as a way to share and promote their work.
It differs largely from YouTube because of its “artsy” distinctiveness. That’s not to say that there aren’t any great artists promoting their work on YouTube – because they’re definitely there as well – but YouTube is so huge that it encompasses everything you could point a camera at. Vimeo, on the other hand, is very much known specifically for creative artistry.
However, when you are trying to upload DVD to Vimeo, you may get into trouble since Vimeo website doesn't support DVD uploading.
According to Vimeo Help Center, H.264 video with AAC audio in MOV or MP4 format is preferred format for Vimeo uploading. To share DVD on Vimeo, you will need to rip DVD movies to Vimeo friendly H.264 MP4 or MOV first. With the assistance of Brorsoft DVD Ripper, all becomes easy.

1. The Vimeo Plus/PRO Upgrade:
Although the 500MB storage limit and 720p HD video are more than enough for most Vimeo users, the site offers an upgrade with even more features and space. If you shot your video in full HD, or 1920 x 1080, there's a good chance that you want to play it back online that way, too.
Vimeo offers two different upgrades – Plus and PRO – that feature advanced options for showcasing your video at its best.
Vimeo Plus features 5GB per week of video storage, which is large enough to upload virtually any short video or clip in HD. This storage limit restarts every week so you can upload a new project or clip every 7 days if you run out of space. With a free Vimeo account you can upload 1 HD video per week, but the Plus upgrade lets you upload unlimited HD video as well as allowing for HD embedding on other websites and blogs. This makes Vimeo Plus a great option for hosting video for your portfolio, project, or personal website.
The Vimeo Plus upgrade is one of the most affordable video hosting options you'll find online.
If you're a creative professional and need even more storage capacity for your endeavors, Vimeo also offers the PRO upgrade which features 50GB or storage, unlimited video plays, and HD 1080p video. Perhaps the most important part of the PRO upgrade is that it lets you add your own brand to your videos and site, and removes the Vimeo logo. In addition to having full creative control of your site, you'll also enjoy advanced controls for video playback and the video player itself.
