Believe it or not we release new features and little feature improvements on a weekly basis. Sometimes they are really big, sometimes they are small. But each and every one helps improve the site and give you (hopefully) better options for your videos. So today I'm bringing to your attention two cool little improvements to the settings pages.
Granular Global Video Settings
A little while ago we released Global Settings, a feature that let's you easily change settings on ALL of your videos, including future videos you upload, at once. This feature allowed you to change the privacy, appearance, quality and licenses settings, without having to go to each video and do it manually. The thing was, you couldn't change the settings to each option individually, you could only update all the different settings options to all the videos. By our own account, it wasn't the best implementation and it caused confusion.
But we fixed it! As of today, each Global Setting can be updated individually. Yay! Want to update your privacy setting on all your videos? Go for it. Maybe you're a Plus Member and you want to make all your videos default to HD when embedded. Do it! Life on Vimeo just got a little easier for all you settings and preference junkies. Go to your Global Settings page and check it out!
New Comment Privacy
Vimeo is a huge community now. Over 6.7 million beautiful registered users! And boy do you guys love to talk! Yesterday we had a near record-breaking day with over 6500 comments. Of course, we also respect your privacy and we know sometimes you want to share a video without opening it up to public discourse. Previously, the only comment privacy was 'Contacts Only', but today we've gone one step further and now allow people to disable comments entirely. It's a small improvement, but given the wide range of people using the site, we understand this option is important. You can find the new settings on any video settings page or in Global Settings page.
As always, if you experience any issues or have any comments about the new features, please let us know in our Help Forum.+ More from the Staff Blog Archive
