Thanks for the post Teknik!
I changed it to an idea so it will be easier for the team to track.
I'm curious what you like about Vimeo.

This feature is a make or break feature for me. I haven't bought CamTasia yet but if it doesn't offer the direct upload to Vimeo, I will consider another option.

Thanks for the request Jim.  What is it about Vimeo that makes it a must have for you?

Vimeo is a community of artists that critique each other's work. As an online educator, it is where I am going to upload my videos and get advice on how to improve them. I also like the Creative Commons search licensing feature for Vimeo.

I love Vimeo.  I upload a copy of every YouTube video I make, to Vimeo.  When I embed any video in my blog, I always choose the Vimeo embed over the YouTube version.  

However, I upload to both services from my browser, when logged into my Vimeo or YouTube account.  I'm just more comfortable with the process and I feel like I have more control over what information is entered in which field.  Just because there isn't an direct upload, doesn't mean you can't easily upload to Vimeo. 

Just my 2 cents.

True. But it would at least be nice with an output profile that matches Vimeo in a way that it doesn't complain about nitrate quality etc

shouldn't it be possible to upload to any website? why not to provide option to simply enter (s)ftp credentials, upload directory and that's it!

That's true, but uploading to an FTP site is trivial (drag, drop using FileZilla) compared to say uploading to youtube/vimeo (logging into website, add new video, etc. etc. finally upload, and wait, and wait).

It's a good point though. I think I'll just have to write my own application that will look in a folder every hour or so and upload to vimeo directly to save the effort.

Mike,

I'd also love to see Vimeo added as a video hosting provider that we can upload directly from. I like the ability that Vimeo provides to be able to lock down who can view my videos (i.e. to be able to only allow certain domains to be able host a video).

Don't see why YouTube deserves a place as a pre-packaged distribution alternative and not Vimeo. What is there to discuss?

I agree with this idea as well--Vimeo is an excellent platform for professional publishing. We use it because of the ability to white-label and embed videos securely, while blocking them from public play (we keep instructional content behind passwords). Vimeo gives you the ability to restrict access and limit to specific domains.

PS: You might also consider direct publishing to Brightcove as well, for the same reasons.

If screencast offered security comparable to Vimeo or Brightcove there would be no need. Screencast lost our business and most likely Camtasia as well.

No? Nothing more about Vimeo?  I get bitrate errors when I upload my Camtasia8 productions to Vimeo.  Pretty disappointing since YouTube is burning bridges left and right with their idiotic Google+ comments.  I predict a mass EXODUS of content providers out of YouTube and I'm at the head of the pack.

Another recommendation might be a similar prepackaged upload for UStream!

my company uses vimeo because we can create a password-protected private corporate training and instructional video site.  this is why vimeo is a "must have", because we use camtasia to make the tutorials,

"What is it about Vimeo that makes it a must have for you?"

Answer: I embed my videos into a Learning Management System (LMS) of a college where I'm an adjunct. I retain the rights to the videos and the college pays me to use them.

With Vimeo, I can restrict embed rights to specific domains. If the college doesn't renew, I delete its LMS domain and they no longer have access to my videos.

I also embed videos on my web pages in a password-protected directory. Each client has a username and password, and when their access time is up, I delete their login information.

In both cases, my videos are protected.

If Screencast offered the option of domain-restricted embedding, I'd consider switching.

Yes Please add direct publishing to Vimeo for all the reasons above. Make it just as easy as it's publishing to YouTube. Thanks1

Wondering why this seemingly simple request has languished for years without action? YouTube is a total non-starter for us for so many reasons. I can upload an MP4 created by Camtasia 8, but Vimeo complains about the bitrate. It plays OK,, but it would be nice to not have the extra step.

THANK you! Come on, TechSmith. Please take this seriously. Video has gained amazing traction in the market for very good reason. Please add this to your supported platforms for direct publishing!!

Three years is way too long to let this issue go without some resolution. You want to know why else we like Vimeo? FAR fewer trolls, and Google doesn't own it.

I would also like to see a direct upload to Vimeo. Any ideas TechSmith if this is something that might be in an upgrade or new version ? I upload manually if I do upload a video. Yes Vimeo does complain about the bit rate and it would be nice to see this issue worked in too if possible.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Direct Upload to Vimeo.

Would be great to add ability to upload direct to Vimeo in a future release! I'd like to suggest that for future. Since you have YouTube and Screencast, and Vimeo is now pretty big, just a suggestion.

I'd really appreciate this feature. Our company generates tutorial videos with Camtasia, but are concerned about corporate parks blocking YouTube, which means additional distractions every time I make a video.

Vimeo can be and is blocked in some locations.
It does not have the features & capability of Screencast.com
Best to stick with Screencast.com
All features work here.
Have never had any remote country block Screencast.com

For those posting about desiring Vimeo output from within Camtasia Studio, I was wondering if you could give me a bit more information?

1. What kind of videos would you typically post to Vimeo from within CS? Instructional, art, storytelling, etc.

2. Do you have a free Vimeo account or paid? If paid, what level?

3. Do you want to put screen recording style videos up on Vimeo?  Like software training videos?

4. Would you want to use high motion, real world camera video in your CS projects to be uploaded to Vimeo?

5. Does the Vimeo size / HD quota impact the type of videos and how often you want to upload to Vimeo?

6.  Anything else you want to tell us about your need for Vimeo output?

We would appreciate you taking the time to let us know how you would want to use Camtasia Studio in conjunction with a Vimeo output option.

Thanks so much!

1. Instructional
2. Vimeo Pro
3. Yes
4. Maybe
5. No
6. I don't understand why YouTube is a 'first class citizen' with Camtasia (it's a toy, though popular) and Vimeo isn't even acknowledged, though it's more suited for enterprise applications.

1. What kind of videos would you typically post to Vimeo from within CS? Instructional, art, storytelling, etc.

-Instructional, for business purposes.

2. Do you have a free Vimeo account or paid? If paid, what level?

-Free: We'd go paid if it were necessary, but the main restriction on accounts seems to be per-week volume, and the quota is generous.

3. Do you want to put screen recording style videos up on Vimeo?  Like software training videos?

-Yep, that's what we do with it.

4. Would you want to use high motion, real world camera video in your CS projects to be uploaded to Vimeo?

-That we don't do.

5. Does the Vimeo size / HD quota impact the type of videos and how often you want to upload to Vimeo?

-I'm unaware of exactly what this entails, so I guess it doesn't! Vimeo always warns me that the bitrate of Camtasia videos is low with maximum production settings, but they look fine.

6.  Anything else you want to tell us about your need for Vimeo output?

-Nope, nothing strange comes to mind.

Hi, Kelly,

Similar to above, we would use Vimeo across a number of different clients for different purposes:

1. What kind of videos would you typically post to Vimeo from within CS? Instructional, art, storytelling, etc.
Instructional, broadcast archive, storytelling, art

2. Do you have a free Vimeo account or paid? If paid, what level?
Paid/Pro

3. Do you want to put screen recording style videos up on Vimeo?  Like software training videos?
Happy to, in my *copious* spare time. ;-)

4. Would you want to use high motion, real world camera video in your CS projects to be uploaded to Vimeo?
Yes, that would be great, and quite likely something we would use, as a number of our live broadcasts also include high motion live cameras.

5. Does the Vimeo size / HD quota impact the type of videos and how often you want to upload to Vimeo?
Yes--most of the broadcast archives are 3 hours or more long, and are at least weekly; may be more often in the future.

6.  Anything else you want to tell us about your need for Vimeo output?
We love Vimeo because of its ability to white label and customize presentations, segregating content by client and project; domain restrictions rock, custom URLs rock. We would love to be able to use it for live feeds as well in the future, if that would ever be possible. Our only real beef with it is the complaint it always generates about video resolution when we upload from Livestream archives or CS.

Thanks so much, Kelly!

Our responses to your questions:

1. Educational, Communications, Business.

2. Paid. Vimeo Pro. 

3. No.

4. No.

5. No.

6.  We like using vimeo over YouTube since it doesn't have as many limitations. It's more professional people say as well. We have gotten around the vimeo resolution warning that it generates when we upload from CS, but I imagine a lot of other people might have been scared away by that and used another software that doesn't provoke that warning. If we could directly publish there, as you offer on youtube, that would be fabulous.

I would just add that I too would much appreciate a direct method to upload to Vimeo.  I am planning to make a series of instructional videos on Psychology and psychotherapy topics.  It would be great if Camstasia would make this project a priority.

I was having no trouble uploading to Vimeo until a few days ago, when Camtasia crashed during a Vimeo upload and (despite restarts, etc) now it crashes every time it uploads directly to Vimeo, right at the start, no  matter what file size.

Any suggestions?

Hello,
I'm sorry you are having trouble!

I would suggest you close down all running programs. Then, run the Camtasia installer again, choosing the option to do a Repair.

Then, restart your computer, open Camtasia, and see if the issue is fixed.

If it is not fixed, please go here to see how contact our technical support team:
