  • KAYHAN LANNES OZMEN plus 3 years ago
    i've been having the same problems with my uploads.....did you guys get any reply back from vimeo?!
  • Mary Jane Williams 3 years ago
    Mine stuck at the 20% mark. Does Vimeo ever reply to this problem?
  • ItsaKMLproduction 3 years ago
    Yeah, mine won't even upload for some reason. Any ideas y?

  • Pasquale D'Silva plus 4 years ago
    tags would be so much nicer in the flickr system where you juts slap in spaces. For multi word items you can single or double quote the suckers
  • dunno plus 4 years ago
    Really? I find the commas to be way easier than the quotes. I like it as is.
  • Pasquale D'Silva plus 4 years ago
    Well to me it feels more natural to type keywords with spaces between then ( I guess it's because I'm used to flickr and a bunch of others which use that format)

    Either way, the tags are still neat :)
  • Ben Millett 4 years ago
    So, are you going to change your upload email so that you don't get some random videos uploaded?

    Nice tutorial. The upload page was daunting at first, but I like it now.
  • Blake Whitman staff 4 years ago
    i'm looking forward to them.
  • okaysamurai 4 years ago
    The new uploader is really nicely done. Vimeo has always been great about never leaving the user waiting around and guessing what to do. Great work!

  • FeelgoodDJ 3 years ago
    I had uploaded a video 15 hours ago and i can't see it. Vimeo tell me that in 1 or 2 minutes it will be finished but i see these message 14 hours ago. Is that normal? how many hours we need to wait to see the video in the site? Thanks. (is my first video uploaded).
  • Ayoriuz 3 years ago
    I know this has nothing to do with the video but I always wanted to know how you can capture what you are doing in your computer as you work, like this tutorial.
  • dalas verdugo staff 3 years ago
    A program called iShowU.
  • Ayoriuz 3 years ago
  • Bram Boterham plus 3 years ago
    Yeah, well i have a question about 16:9 video's. When I upload my 16:9 video it's squeezed together...
  • dalas verdugo staff 3 years ago
    That means your pixel dimensions were not a 16:9 ratio.
  • Golgota 3 years ago
    hi dalas verdugo, nice vimeo, i'm very impressed with the HD view system, btw, does Vimeo:

    1. support FLV format?
    2. produce high quality sound (STEREO) if i upload my video (still Picture with Audio [MP3 format 320kbps 44100] )?

    Thanks in advance dalas.
  • dalas verdugo staff 3 years ago
    1. No, it causes problems.
    2. Please use an audio service for that. Vimeo is for videos.
  • Jay Shropshire plus 3 years ago
    if you don't upload anthing for one week do you get 1000 mb the next week?
  • dalas verdugo staff 3 years ago
    No, you only get 500 MB per week, whether you use it or not.
  • Jay Shropshire plus 3 years ago
    what is the best settings to compress a 720 hd video that is 10 minutes long and not loose any resolution on the computer screen.. I am having serious trouble trying to get files to 500mb can you help
  • Jefferson Fox 3 years ago
    How long should it take to upload a 100mb video? been at it for hours. I'm broadband. And how do you know if it's really doing it's thing anyway?
  • Julia Olivares 3 years ago
    Hi, I just uploaded my new video and doesn't run at all, It says that It has been an error and now I cant try again because I just have 5 MB left, what should I do about it?
    Please reply me back soon as possible, I have been trying to upload the video since last week and when I finally did, doesn't work.
    Thanks a lot
  • Andrei Sebastian 3 years ago
    for a few days now Vimeo just doesn't wnat to upload naything from me, ...and yes, please try not to be condescending and give non-sensical reasons like update your flash player (i'm a pc geek)...

    It goes like this, it reaches 100% at which point Vimeo gives the text "Success! we're converting the vidoe right now." And then it's stuck for the rest of his life, bye bye.

    This is quite annoyng as i tryed every god damned encoder possible (yes, i did try the recommended h264 - as i said, stop it whit the silly resolves).
  • GunzLT 3 years ago
    Im using mp4 format and 1st it stucked on 16% the on 14% now on 8% just stucks !
  • Steve Denny 3 years ago

  • I wonder if my low speed to upload a File is connected with my internet provider service or with the vimeo upload speed, I am going at 10 kB/s and this require several hours for a 200 MB files, any info about vimeo upload maximum speed, thanks.
  • Aaron 3 years ago

  • jaci terheggen 3 years ago
    I just joined and uploaded a video from iMovie. There is no sound from what I imported from iTunes, but there is sound from a few video clips. Any suggestions?
  • Nicholas Whitaker plus 3 years ago
    When i try to upload a video that is close to the 500mb limit, it hangs at 99% complete and never goes beyond that.
    I'm uploading in HD following the format criteria, the file size is 486mb.
  • Johan Tenggren 3 years ago
    Probbs with the uploading. Stucks between 34% and 36% every time I try.
  • Steve Denny 3 years ago
    I have no videos up, yet only 10 mb???
  • Andre M. 3 years ago
    Mine also stops at 99%"Almost Done" and nothing happens.

    What gives??
  • Blake Freeman 3 years ago
    Mine is hanging at 99% too. A 450MB HD video. Vimeo is great, but it seems like this same issue is really a pain for many of us. Please comment.
  • nameless 3 years ago

  • Guimo LOPEZ 3 years ago
    Hey i'm new on vimeo. I uploaded a video of 224Mo. My internet is very slow and i had to wait 3 hours before it stucked at 98%. Just i think i lost a short moment my connection. So i kept my page of the upload at 98% and i wanted to know if there is a way to reconnect the upload to finish the 2 last per cent.
  • CrAzY MarK 3 years ago

  • Tim REYNAUD 3 years ago
    comment fait on pour supprimer une video?
  • Steve McDonald plus 3 years ago
    Quel dommage, Tim, mais il n'est pas possible. Toutes les vidéos restent ici pour l'éternité.
  • how can i upload a hi-def video file that's larger than 500 mb?
  • Trey Vollmer 3 years ago
    Yes, Vimeo is cool, but it would be a whole lot cooler if it would actually upload my video.

    I have 500 mb of free space and my file is 480 mb. I've trired to upload it twice now to no avail. The first time it froze at 2% upload. The second time it froze at 60% upload. My computer is not freezing, only the Vimeo upload.

    Do you have any idea what might be preventing me from participating in this community?


  • Roman 3 years ago
