vimeo

While I’m catching up on just about everything on a rainy PA Saturday morning, I find that my inbox is full of Tech Tools updates, BETA launches, and we are the winners.  In the case of Vimeo, we could quite literally be winners with $5 million up for grabs in a contest.  Read on.

Here’s what’s new on Vimeo:

New Features Coming!

  • In a few short weeks we’ll be launching our fancy new state-of-the-art Desktop Uploader. “What on Earth could that be?” you may ask. Well, it’s an easy way for you to upload videos right from your desktop! And if that’s not enough, you will be able to upload multiple files, pause and resume uploading, and edit titles and descriptions without even launching a web browser.
  • We are also still very hard at work on a robust new Stats feature that we’ve been building for almost a year . We can’t tell you too much more right now, but what we can say is that you’ll have so much information about your videos, you might just explode. Seriously. For a sneak peak, check out our blog. Everyone will get some of the goodness, but you should upgrade to Plus for the full impact.
