What is Vimeo?

Vimeo is a video sharing platform that was launched in 2004 by a group of filmmakers. It differs largely from YouTube because Vimeo is mainly “artsy” distinctive meaning it caters to mostly artists in film, animation, music and other works of art who use the platform to share and promote their work.

YouTube encompasses everything you could point a camera at where Vimeo, on the other hand, is very much known specifically for creative works.
