Which do you prefer and why?

 

It seems like I see almost all HD stuff on Vimeo.

 

I prefer YouTube, just because it works well with the integration of all the other Google products I use and a single sign on.

If I were to use videos as a major part of my marketing, I would use both. YouTube certainly is the best for exposure, but Vimeo is well liked and even preferred by some over YouTube

I would opt for YouTube because Vimeo videos take forever to load on my computer, and I know there are people with far worse connections than me! And most people don't even know about Vimeo... they may have come across it once or twice, but I don't think as many people head over to Vimeo to search for something.

I go with YouTube, both for uploading and viewing. I think it's more popular so has more videos to see and gets more views when I put my stuff there. I do hate some of the restrictions, though, so occasionally I have to go to Vimeo to see videos.

Vimeo is so much better, atleast for me.Uploading videos is so much easier. You are able to watch it upload, rather than just getting the never-ending YouTube loading page. You can also edit the information about the video while it is uploading.

On YouTube you can do both of these things.

I prefer YouTube to Vimeo simply because of its popularity and the variety. The community behind YouTube is what makes it the most appealing, as Talk Tech News said. The only thing I seriously dislike about YouTube is its heavy censorship of videos containing any copyrighted material, although Vimeo is quite guilty of this as well.

My vote goes with Youtube as well. It's the 3rd most popular site on the internet so it makes sense to use it in your marketing efforts. But when I use video marketing, I publish my videos on top video sites to get maximum exposure and traffic. I use tubeMogul to publish my videos on multiple sites.

I've uploaded some videos from my travels in NYC last yaer and chose Youtube for this. I do like watching videos on Vimeo too, but I don't have an account there and haven't tried to upload anything just yet. My Youtube account is anyway connected to all my other google services, so it was easy to work with. not to mention my camcorder software 'knows' how to automatically upload what I want to my Youtube account, so less work for me :)
