Hi Vimeo! I'm on a tour of the vlog sites, uploading where I can. So far, your site is the only one which does not accept Real Media (rm) files. I have very strong arguments in favor of the rm codec as being the most efficient (smallest file sizes for best single-rate quality).

DISCLAIMER: I am in no way a part of this company. In fact, I hate this company for the way they try to steal file associations, and hit you with a pop-up every time you close their player.

However, after 3 weeks of serious experiments, their codec is simply the best.

Hi Mike,

I've had trouble getting RM to work, and I agree with you that their policies for stealing file associaitions are annoying. In general, I'm just not a fan of RM, and haven't had any requests for compatability with them except from you!

I will consider using RM in the future, but at the moment, unfortunately the answer is no.
