1. This is becoming more and more common – Vimeo removed almost 300 of my videos as well. Spike.com (formerly iFilm), Blip.TV and several others have done this in the past as well.

    You have to realize that NONE of these companies (including YouTube) is making money! NONE. They’re all scrambling around trying to figure out how to monetize these sites, but none have come up with a model that actually works. There has even been talk of shutting YouTube down as it is a financial drain on Google.

    Your best bet for not getting booted is use a site designed specifically FOR real estate, like WellcomeMat or Zipvo.

    BUT, you also need to understand that THEY could disappear (as opposed to your videos) at any time. Logic says that these sites NEED to make money. Bandwidth COSTS money. Until they come up with a model that allows them to monetize these sites, they are ALL at risk of disappearing! Nothing is free in this world, and to assume these will be around offering everything for free to everyone is ridiculous.

    Upload at your own risk. Everywhere.

  2. THX M8 Yea Vimeo sucks !!! My Account was deleted with
    this Reason :
    Dear nico underdog: Your account has been removed by Vimeo staff. Reason: Game play is not allowed on vimeo. Regards,Vimeo

    My Mixes my Trax. But my Account is history

    Youre right man Vimeo sucks !!!
    never vimeo again. thx for this site !!!

  3. I completely agree. We need to organize something against Vimeo and Dalas Verdugo. This guy has deleted my account TWICE now. The first time, he thought I had 2 accounts, when 1 belonged to my business partner. Just yesterday, he deleted my entire account of 30 videos. Some of them had upwards of 30k views! Wanna know why? Because I went in the Vimeo Forums and complained that it took 4 days to get a response from the HELP section. He said that by complaining, it was designed to harm Vimeo’s reputation, and therefore he completely deleted me off Vimeo without a warning.. for someone who’s trying to run a community, isn’t that kinda… FASCIST?

    “Fascist governments permanently forbid and suppress all criticism and opposition to the government and the fascist movement.[10] Fascist movements oppose any ideology or political system that gives direct political power to people as individuals rather than as a collective through the state (liberalism, democracy, individualism); that is deemed detrimental to national identity and unity (class conflict, communism, internationalism, laissez-faire capitalism); that protects and enhances the power of weak people rather than promoting strong people (egalitarianism); that may oppose major changes to government and other institutions that it proposes (conservatism) and that undermine the military strength and military ambitions of the nation”

    Yup. What can we do here guys?

  4. For me the policies of Vimeo aren’t the issue, its the delivery of the video. I’ve pretty much come to the stage where if I see a Vimeo video on a web page I dont watch it, because the download always takes forever, or stops and starts all the time. Really the worst download delivery of all providers. And its not my net speed or connections, as I do speed tests and try many other video providers. I think that Vimeo has got big fast, not making any money, and can’t maintain their server network to delivery content properly.
