Vimeo Ready to Play Full-Length Movies

Vimeo wants your full-length movies. The video sharing site has announced that Vimeo Plus members may now upload up to 5GB of content in a single file, enough to contain up to 2.5 hours of HD video content. Previously, member uploads were limited to 2GB.

Vimeo says heavy file compression means the 5GB uploads won't suffer any compromise in quality. An annual Vimeo Plus subscription is $59.95.

The Hong Kong-based company Megavideo, another online video community, offers its Premium members unlimited file size at an annual cost of €59.99, but the site is known for hosting pirated content. YouTube's hosting of feature-length films is currently limited to its studio partners.

"Since we launched our Vimeo Plus service two years ago, we have continually added to and rounded out its offerings," said Dae Mellencamp, Vimeo’s General Manager. "We continually strive to provide our subscriber base with the best and most robust features available."

    YouTube's hosting of feature film is not limited to studio partners as our film is on their site with 8000 plus views free of charge to us. We also set the rental price so we decide if our film will be rented or per view to the viewers. I recommend YouTube as more economical choice for indie filmmakers with the chance to earn $ :)
