Subject: Tech: You Tube or Vimeo
From: Tootler
Date: 09 Jul 10 - 07:35 PM

I am looking for ways to share photos/videos of my granddaughter with members of my family who are somewhat scattered round the UK and in some cases further afield (My brother lives in South Africa).

However I do it, I want to use a site with decent privacy controls.

Flickr seems to meet the bill, allowing you to share photos with Family and/or Friends or Everyone, so I have signed up for Flickr, uploaded a few photos and set them as viewable by family only and I'll see how that goes.

I am already signed up to You Tube and have a few music videos there. Family videos are a different matter, though and I am not entirely happy with You Tube's system of privacy controls. I was looking at Vimeo earlier today (thanks to Will Fly - enjoyed your videos btw) and I had a look round the site and they seemed to have a better set of privacy controls, more like Flickr.

I wondered how others felt how Vimeo and You Tube compared.

I think Picasa might work for this.

I thought the point of Vimeo was mainly to handle bigger, higher-quality stuff than YouTube?

Here's the page for a video demonstrating the Vimeo privacy settings. I think it will do what you require.

Vimeo was indeed set up to cater for the needs of the more professional film video maker - they were offering 1Gb of server space per video long before YouTube, who have now followed suit. If you pay a subscription to Video, you get a large amount of server space and little limit on video size, and some of the stuff on Vimeo is very high quality and sophisticated.

I like it because the sound and picture qualities are superior to YouTube. YouTube gets the publicity and the viewing figures, so I think it's a necessary evil - and I could do without their constant meddling with the interface. I use both as and when it suits.

Thanks Will. The Vimeo privacy settings look similar to Flickr and would suit me better than You Tube.

When I looked earlier, I didn't think you could upload videos to Picasa. It seems you can, but the information is not exactly clear. In fact their basic information is poor generally. Too much "Look how wonderful we are" and not enough hard information. It also looks as if the video uploads end up on You Tube (both Picasa and You Tube being owned by Google), and as I said at the beginning I am not exactly happy with You Tubes style of privacy settings.

I did eventually find how Picasa's privacy settings worked after a bit of a hunt round and they are virtually the same as You Tube.

you can post info/data to "my space" and send it to private parties
with no public access...I use this feature to share videos of practice
songs with band members...songs that are not ready for public viewing.

also jsut attaching fotos to e-mail
and sending to a group in your e-mail address book

or a yahoo group which is only for members can work for this too.

good luck.
