Google Video (old) and Vimeo (new)

Google Video has announced that it will soon stop accepting new video uploads. This is a sad thing for this website because we have been using Google Video pretty exclusively and it has worked very well. I understand, however, that they will suspend this free offering, so we will have to switch.

After reviewing many video upload services we have decided to go with Vimeo. while not quite as fast in the uploading department and while it does not offer as many full-screen options, it seems to be a good substitute.

Vimeo seems to convert everything into a Flash video so that when it plays it does so smoothly and with high quality even in a lower bandwidth situation.

Let us know if you have any problems with the new Vimeo videos.
