Vimeo video player expanded

Vimeo video player offers improved uploads

Video sharing website Vimeo has unveiled its new redesign, the centrepiece of which is a new 2x larger full-width player.

The company says it has also developed new ‘smart browsing’ capabilities, which include a pull-down video discovery bar on the video page that enables users to explore their feed, recently viewed videos, watch later queue and Vimeo’s new ‘Related Videos,’ which suggests videos based on similar videos that other people have ‘liked’.

New search filters allow users to narrow results by length, credits, copyright, relevancy and more, as well as search for videos with Creative Commons licenses.

New privacy options include the ability to keep your video stats and ‘your activity’ feed private, as well as block other users.

Visit the Vimeo website for a full list of the new features.

The redesign will be tested by a set number of registered users before going live. If you would like to sign up to participate, visit the Vimeo blog for more details.
