Greetings my fellow Vimeans,
I have awesome news to share. The Vimeo developers have been hard at work, making it possible for anyone who owns a smartphone to easily watch, like, and comment on your videos!
Plus users who own an iPhone, iPod Touch, Android, or Palm Pre can now go to our mobile site, vimeo.com/m and make mobile versions of their videos. After logging in, click "My Videos" then the "Generate Mobile Videos" button! (Please allow some time for your videos to bake in the transcoder ovens.)
For Plus users who don't have a smartphone, no worries! You can make mobile versions of your videos by going to any of your video's setting page and clicking the "Videos" tab. Then check the "Generate mobile versions of all my videos" box.
Once you choose to make mobile versions of your videos every new video you upload will get a mobile version and all of your existing videos will be queued up to be converted. For the next few days there will undoubtedly be a lot of demand to mobilize videos, so please allow for up to a day for everything to convert.
We are really excited to offer mobile support and hope everyone enjoys watching Vimeo videos on all these fun new devices. We will be adding even more mobile features in the coming months so stay tuned!
By the way, if you happen to run into a snag or need help with your mobile videos, please post to our Mobile Help thread in the Help Center.+ More from the Staff Blog Archive
