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, 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.

Excellent news. Now I can stop using episode. Will there be an option to select for mobile videos while uploading new vids? Or do we wait for them to upload first?

Your new uploads will also have mobile versions made after you initially select to have mobile versions made from your phone.



I'm already really enjoying it! Thank you berry much. The quality is so insanely better than YouTube!!
Alto I can't play the embedded movies I posted on my blog. Love to see that as well.

Vimeo, I think you're great but I think it would be reasonable if it was possible to get this feature for €5,- per video.

Hi! =) I'm still new to Vimeo esp to the Plus facilities. I tried to make my video available on mobile but on the VIDEO tab, it doesn't have the option of "Generate mobile versions of all my videos". Please help =( Thanks

I was having the same issue yesterday. I found out that the video I uploaded before I got the Plus account couldn't become mobile enabled until I uploaded another video. What you have to do is this: from your Vimeo account, go to your videos, click on one of your video files, go to "Settings" > "Video file" > check the "Mobile version" checkbox > click "Upgrade this Video"

THEN, you have to upload a new video and it will make that new video Mobile compatible - even iphones / ipads. It appears it also converted my other videos that I already uploaded.

Hope that helps!
