I have not seen any one mention this here yet but Vimeo, starting August 1, is putting a cap on how long our original files are stored on their site. They are planning on giving "free" users only one week to keep their original video files (in the format you saved it) and then they will delete them. What they plan on doing instead is re-converting our footage to a lower resolution .MP4 file for others to download. Nothing changes for Plus users by the way. You can read about this here:
I'm not sure I like this because the file they will be using is the same low res file that is being played in their browser. I understand their need to save server space and be competetive but honestly, if the quality on their site were to be the same as it was over a year ago then I wouldn't mind so much. So, really, what this means is our best bet is to upload the highest possible data rate file so that when we take that hit...it won't be as bad. But still....we will take a hit.
