New Vimeo hands-on
If you've used the video sharing site Vimeo before you'll know that compared to the inifinite sprawl of content that is YouTube, Vimeo is considerably smaller – but makes up for it with character and plenty of user generated video content.
New Vimeo – site redesign
Vimeo CEO Dae Mellencamp gave us a sneak peek at the new site before it goes into closed beta and we played around with some of the new features and design tweaks.
First up, Vimeo has pushed the menu and video discovery tools (Me, Videos, Explore, Tools, Help and Upload) into the background with the new muted colour scheme so that your eyes don't get distracted from the video content.
Vimeo search now includes optional fields like SD/HD and video length if you choose the advanced view. There's no change to ads – they stay at one ad per page for basic users with no pesky pre-rolls.
