Bring VIMEO back as a share option!

Vimeo is an industry standard with video. I can't imagine why you'd remove it as a share option with the 2018 "upgrade." 

This is a step backwards.

Hi Wayne,
Snagit:Mac has never explicit supported sharing to Vimeo. However, Snagit:Mac does support Apple's NSSharingService and Vimeo is a default sharing service provided by Apple...   

But...  you can turn it OFF in system preferences. That is my best guess for what happened. 

Go here (see picture below) and make sure Vimeo is still turned ON.

My Mac is OS 10.13.1 and my Snagit is 2018.0.1 (90411)

I still see Vimeo in the Share dropdown menu, but selecting it does nothing. When I go to Snagit > Prefs > Output, Vimeo is not an option to add back. 




Yes, @Doug Troxell, my Vimeo is on.

Do you think you can record a quick video of what's going on?
(You can record Snagit by unchecking "Hide Snagit when capturing" in Snagit's capture preferences)

Thank you, that video helps a lot! I tried this on macOS 10.12 and it all seems to work well, but on 10.13 I got no progress on the upload. It did eventually upload, but it took a while and never showed progress.

I'm fairly certain this is Apple's bug, but one thing you can try is to right click the video in Snagit and "Reveal in Finder". Then right click the video in Finder and share to Vimeo and see if it behaves any differently.

Hi,

We did not remove the vimeo extension, it's one that's provided to all apps by Apple. Make sure that you are signed into your video account in System Preferences under Internet Accounts and that the account is enabled.

I've never used share with SnagIt. I've always save to Hard Drive and inserted the PNG files as needed

In a chat with a TechSmith associate yesterday, I was told Snagit 2018 no longer had Vimeo support in sharing. They then suggested I post my "suggestion" in this forum. Prior to the 2018 version, I could share/upload to Vimeo without a hitch. If the Vimeo extension works with all apps, as you say, I'd love to know how to make it work here. You might also let your chat techs know too. Thanks.

Hi,

pjonesCET is correct, we used to use the Vimeo extension provided by macOS, but unfortunately Apple removed that (and a number of other extensions) in macOS Mojave.

If there is enough interest, we can look into writing our own Vimeo plugin, however I would first request that Vimeo add a share extension to their macOS app. That would have the added benefit of being available system-wide instead of just in Snagit.

I'm using the Windows version. I figure if we have a Vimeo extension in Camtasia, there should be one in SnagIt.

I gone to Vimeo website and can find no help or support link  to ask about it. Perhaps someone at techsmith can find proper place at vimeo to ask about  the extension.
