Vimeo have launched a new service, Vimeo Pro. Do you use Vimeo for posting commercial videos? If so then this might be just be worth looking at to avoid the potential black box problem on your website.

There are only two real choices for hosting your videos online, YouTube or Vimeo. YouTube has always been seen as the low quality host full of dogs doing tricks or Rebecca Black videos. Vimeo has been seen as the filmmakers host, more craft, 5D's and film flares than Star Wars kid or a baby biting another kids finger.

There is one big difference between the two, Vimeo under its terms and conditions doesn't allow the posting of commercial videos. We know of at least one website owner who woke up one day to find his site littered with black rectangles, his Vimeo videos and account were deleted.

We think Vimeo have recognised the need for users to be able to post commercial videos online, Vimeo Pro has no restriction on commercial usage. It's also got some pretty cool new features too.
