YouTube vs Vimeo - Why is the video quality so much different between these two services? It's easy to see in this comparison video. YouTube only allows a maximum 3Mbps (for 720p) and 6Mbps (for 1080p), while Vimeo maxes out at 10Mbps (for 720p), and 20 Mbps (for 1080p).  Wow, greater than 3 times better quality using Vimeo, go figure!  For another comparison video see Vimeo ( https://vimeo.com/122223394 ) compared to YouTube ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E0uBuvm-FvA ) Another great Blog post: YouTube vs. Vimeo What's the Difference shows when to use which service (and why).  There are a few YouTube/Vimeo Video Galleries available such as Huzzaz ($9/month), or dropmark ($4/month).
