Vimeo Upgrades Ya!

I just got an email from my favorite video hosting platform, that listed some pretty cool new features for filmmakers.

Most notably, Vimeo videos to now have the ability to play on mobile devices such as iPhones and iPads and Vimeo videos are now available on TV via a Roku black box.

Anyway, I'm too busy today to paraphase beyond that today so, here's their copy cut word for word...

New Vimeo Feature Updates:

Universal Player

Your videos should be seen in as many places as possible. That's why we've introduced a Universal Player that makes it possible to view embedded videos on iPhones, iPads, iPod Touches, and Android devices. The ability to convert your videos to mobile format is still a Plus feature, so if you haven't already, don't you think it's time you upgraded to Plus?!

Watch Later

But Vimeo is about more than just your work. In order to make it easier for you to see everything you want to see, we've created a new feature called "Watch Later." Simply click the new "Later" button on any Vimeo player, and the video will be added to a special album in your account. You may never watch TV again.

Vimeo on Roku

Ok, we lied; you will watch TV again, because we've made it possible to watch Vimeo on your TV with your Roku box. All you have to do is add the Vimeo channel to your Roku, and you can stream videos you made and everything else cool from Vimeo. You can even watch videos from your "Watch Later" queue for the ultimate couch potato experience. Fun stuff! If you don't know Roku, learn more about it.
