I'd love to be able to delete a whole album of clips at one time. If that's not possible, being able to delete multiple clips at once would be good too. Could this be possible?

We agree that this is one of the areas where we can improve. We're looking into a couple of different ways to provide this functionality.

AirStream Pictures

This has become MUCH worse with the new web site. Now, not only can't I delete more than one video at a time, but I have to put in my password for each video I delete. This is a HUGE step backwards.

Nexstar Broadcasting

Nexstar Broadcasting PRO

Agree. I don't want to have to put my password in on every delete. And I'm not paying $200 more to get 50GB of storage. There needs to be a much easier way to delete these videos.

Vimeo "looking into it" and all the came up with was password protect deleting. Very clever way to prevent PLUS users to go away from Vimeo. And of course password must be very complex to be safe. Entering password in public place for 100's time is very safe too.

That's a pretty subjective statement. How much "coding" something takes is pretty hard to determine. And yes, one of our priorities is to allow our creators to make money from their work.

Wow, so you are telling me there is no way to batch delete videos? That is crazy. I have been trying to use FTP to upload videos and apparently the internet on one or both ends is unstable and now I have 397 videos and not one is complete! You're telling me I need to go through that delete process nearly 400 times? This is crazy....I think I need to reconsider this service and probably ask for my money back, very disappointed!!!!!

agreed. At least with the old app, you could queue up a dozen videos to upload. Now 5 is the max. I just uploaded 50 videos for client review. It has become a real PIA to do this.

Any update on this Vimeo? I do prefer the Vimeo player and quality of playback compared to the competition however the media management options (especially since the new update) are terrible. Just completed a project with 24 video uploads which I now need to delete, requiring to dig through all the pages to get to the delete button of each video takes far too much time. Not to mention once you have deleted one it takes you back to the first page of my videos.

YouTube has massively improved over the last six months with its very good video manager, better stats and faster uploads. I'm starting to feel the Pro account really isnt worth it, only customisable thumbnails and being able to replace video files seem to be the only advantage of vimeo now. :( Please resort some hope. Thanks

How difficult would this function be to add? The Vimeo uploader is a joke, upload is ridiculously slow and crashes all the time, to make matters worse there is a 3 step delete process with password protection meaning when 5 videos fail to upload twice there is 30+ steps to delete these videos. Vimeo is going backwards, they were really good at one stage but are failing miserably. The uploader is a fail, the lack of ability to display uploaded videos at a chosen resolution is a fail, lack of quality communication with users is a fail - 'Sorry but we do not comment on ship date of active or future projects' a year has gone by since - 'We're looking into a couple of different ways to provide this functionality' (at least let us know if this will be in the next decade). There are many customers ready to jump ship and even Youtube is starting to look like a better alternative, if I was Vimeo I would be very worried about the direction they are going. Start listening to your users Vimeo.

Rex Dean

The Vimeo iphone app was suggested as a way to delete videos more easily. The suggested swipe-left doesn't appear to work any more, but you can go into a video and press Delete without having to enter your password. The app crashes after each deletion, however, so with the time it takes to restart, depending on the length of the password you're avoiding, it's not much of a time saver. I hate to see when good web services like Vimeo end up failing because of their technical hubris, lack of customer focus, and/or their managers' failure to hire great and responsive designers and developers. Without simple features -- like easy deletion -- that could be coded by any number of pre-teen developers in a weekend, Vimeo will soon have little reason for existing. It's quite likely I could take my annual Vimeo Plus fee and hire a programmer in India to implement the feature for Vimeo, so it's not even remotely a question of resources, just really bad decision-making.

Can we get specific on this? This has been an ongoing request for years now and there is all ways a concept of a solution, with out any deadlines or dates that we can expect to see this feature.

How is this still not been seen as an absolute priority by the vimeo team, this year! another year of selecting one video at a time, painfully putting in a password and deleting it.

Vimeo was such a bright star when we started using it a few years ago but really what has happened to it, you were leading the way there for a second but now it seems you have lost it.
It is slighty embarrasing to go through the forums and just see how many times this has been requested and palmed off.

There was a point that you used to say "we will not be adding this as a feature" Now its "we have a plan to work on it this year" I gues thats progress but its just not good enough

when can we start to see or hear tangible dates as to when we can see this feature?

Ok, so obviously there's some reason why we don't have the capability to batch delete videos. Being as it's been so long without any reply here I'm guessing Vimeo might be thinking more videos, more extra space paid for. But I would respectfully disagree. All of us here are deleting our videos, one at a time, putting in the password. With each click you get more and more annoyed, and you start researching options other than Vimeo. So perhaps management might think of it this way - improving the product and listening to customers creates loyalty. Just a thought....

Is the real reason that Vimeo WANT you to keep you videos on the site, even if you don't want them - so your forced (like me in a rush) to purchase extra space.

Its bad business practice,
Its bad for the customer who now does have a choice to move to YouTube
And bad for the environment, all your servers whirring away storing videos no one is every going to see.

At the very least remove the password option until you can build a bulk editor.

Hi there,

As we've mentioned many times:

1) We're working on this 2) We don't comment on ship dates 3) Just because a thread has been around for awhile doesn't mean we're actively working on that feature

This is coming, and we really appreciate your patience. If you have further concerns feel free to PM me, but please do not use the forums to antagonize the Vimeo staff. Constructive and helpful feedback is welcome, but starting fights will not be tolerated.

Creative Foundry

Creative Foundry Plus

I think you are taking my pure frustration, as aggression! It couldn't be further from the truth. What could be said constructively about this monumental lapse by your company?

I just can't comprehend how you have the audacity to say that, just because a thread is 2 years old does not mean we are working on it. You are in a position that many of us would dream of, your userbase is telling you exactly what can be done to dramatically increase their experience, and it "appears" as though you're dragging your feet (you are working on it but with very little urgency or resources)

Were not even asking for you to have the foresight about what we will require in the future, were talking about hindsight, looking back and clearly seeing how Neanderthal it is for a video hosting company to not have a sufficient interface to delete videos, quickly and easily.

I don't want to fight you, I want you to fight to keep your faithful users by listening to them (before the 2 year mark)

Matt Schwarz

Matt Schwarz Staff

Again, just because a feature request thread exists does not mean Vimeo is actively working on a feature. However, as we've mentioned, we are in fact working on this and agree it will be useful to our user base.

All we can say for now is that it's in the works and we appreciate yours and everyone else's patience.

AirStream Pictures

It should have been being worked on. The fact that you tell us it has not been tells us that Vimeo is not listening to its customers.

So… We've seen no progress on this for a couple of years now. Yet we've seen a user code a solution in an afternoon using the existing API. If you believe that people's actions are a truer indication of their intent than their words (and I do) what conclusions would you draw?

Well, I think that the most logical conclusion is that Vimeo really wants to discourage the kind of use that requires dozens of files to be uploaded and then deleted. That is to say, they want their site filled with the end products of film making, but not the material that is the process of film making. In other words, "We'd love to have you host your film here, but keep your damn casting video and rough cuts off our site!"

Have I got that about right? If not, what am I missing?

"iIt takes time to make things." Nice... Here's a suggestion: stop taking time making lame handshake videos (vimeo.com/mattschwarz/hi) and get back to work providing us with basic functions. This is like a selling us a car with no engine and telling us to be patient because at least it rolls.

with 7600+ videos and counting, I agree this is definitely functionality that should be a high priority, right along with providing better search functionality when searching my own videos, such as allowing string/phrase search when the query string is contained by quotes, and allowing me to search my uploaded videos by tag.

Would it be possible just to make the need to enter your password every time you delete a video an option instead of a requirement? That would seem to be an easy win, and would massively speed up the occasional spring-cleaning.

Hi Lawrence,

The age of this thread is not related to how long we've been working on this feature, but that said it is coming.

Also, I'll ask that you keep a civil tone on Vimeo. Harsh and hurtful language may result in action against your account. As it says below the comment box, "Be cool and play nice."

Lawrence Nimrichter

Lawrence Nimrichter

My tone invokes a level of frustration from waiting years for this feature. And that frustration is visible from many users in the above comments. While the age of the thread may not indicate how long Vimeo has been working on it, it does show how long its been a necessary gap in the service we pay for. If Vimeo has only recently begun working on the feature, that is a different customer service issue unto itself. While over all I do like the service I pay for, there are definitely places it can be improved. I look forward to finally seeing this feature.

Matt Schwarz

Matt Schwarz Staff

Hi Lawrence,

We definitely want to give you the best service possible, but the need for a feature cannot solely be judged on the existence of a Feature Request thread. We know this thread's been around for awhile – we took notice, and agreed to work on this feature.

While we appreciate everyone's passionate requests, please understand that we don't always agree with them and it may take time for a feature request to become relevant to our product or the needs of our community.

Been disappointed this hasn't been implemented, as well as a few upload problems over the last view weeks am beginning to feel our PRO account isn't very good value for money. Also having searched for batch delete their are various threads where this has been promised by staff from 3 years ago.

As a Plus member you get 5GB a week of upload space – at the end of the year this is actually more space than a PRO member gets. We're not forcing anyone to buy more space, users naturally fall into an account-type based on the amount of space they need.

vimeo.com/forums/topic:26977#comment_10069443

Which is more or less the same thread, but asking about batch editing vs. simply batch delete.

I've noticed a few things reading these threads,

1. Vimeo really doesn't give a shit about it's users. Basically all of the responses are "trust us we are working on it, but we can't tell you when it will come out, when we started working on it, if we are working on it, or if we even give a shit about it as a feature, just because over 400 paying users in these two threads have expressed frustration about it doesn't mean our user base actually cares."

2. Vimeo seems to be attacking people who mostly loved the product and are just frustrated that every few months they literally waste 2 hours of their time doing things that should be programmatically simple to fix.

james roe

james roe

Here are some basics of customer support, give your customers what they want, don't make them wait more than 3 years for it, and don't respond to frustrated customers by accusing them of being angry.

They are angry, but they still love your product, and all they are really asking from you is that you attempt to meet basic goals. If you responded with transparency and some movement on these actions you wouldn't need to paint YOUR customers as rude uncouth assholes who aren't capable of a positive conversation.

Hi James,

I feel we've been pretty clear in this thread. We are working on this, we don't comment on ship dates, and we're sorry that some folks are upset but we cannot guarantee when/if a feature will be made.

Honestly I think we provide more information to users regarding our intended direction than most sites, and we try to be honest if we're not into an idea.

That said, if you're unhappy with Vimeo please contact us via email and we'll see what we can do to make your experience better, but please leave the forums as a place for constructive criticism regarding the feature the thread pertains to.

Any updates, guys? I have a feeling it would quell people's frustrations over this seemingly incredibly simple feature if you would post an explanation of why it's taking so long. Two years is an obscene amount of time for something like this, would show a lot of respect for those of who pay for the services if you would just explain what's up, instead of these blatant go-f-yourself-it's-coming-soon replies you keep posting.

It's important to remember that we haven't been building this for 2 years, it's a pretty recent development. The age of a feature request thread doesn't dictate how long a feature has been worked on.

It is a priority, and has been a plan for around a year. But we have a small team and have spent significant time working on other features that PRO members currently enjoy like Vimeo On Demand, new PRO, and some yet to come.

The fact that Vimeo has not provided this a long time ago is ridiculous.

Our solution will be incorporated into our site seamlessly and make it easy to take bulk actions without leaving Vimeo.com. This kind of development takes time and unfortunately got pushed back due to some other priorities. It is now however, a solid todo list item.

Sean P. Phillips

Sean P. Phillips Plus

Matt,

As an operator of a small business myself, I also understand and appreciate the challenges involved in prioritizing limited resources… Which is why I would like to further impress upon you and your team that a Batch Delete feature/function is absolutely ESSENTIAL for those of us who produce video content professionally, and use Vimeo to share raw footage with clients/producers, etc. remotely.

For example, a typical day of shooting for me yields anywhere from 80-150 individual clips that I transcode to low-res with burned timecode for the reporters/producers to write to. A typical story or project is often 3-5 shoot days. Currently, it is a multi-step process to delete each clip individually, which, I'm sure you understand, takes me SEVERAL hours.

I understand that you and your team feel that it is a priority to develop features that enable users to MAKE money, but I would argue that features that SAVE money affects our bottom line equally.

Sean P. Phillips

Sean P. Phillips Plus

I would just add that your team really needs to understand that a Batch Delete function is not simply a convenience, but rather, it translates into real dollars (and it adds up significantly faster than the "tip jar" could ever collect). I know this function is "unsexy" and probably doesn't please your marketing folks, but if you want to really please the (real) "Pro" community, your development team needs to consider how we use Vimeo. Or, if you want to be more like Apple and just keep your focus on the skateboarding-teenager-filmmakers-with-GoPros community, then I suppose we will find other ways to fill our needs (as we always do).

Matt Schwarz

Matt Schwarz Staff

Hi Sean,

This feature is in active development, so it's just a matter of time :)

Sean P. Phillips

Sean P. Phillips Plus

I truly appreciate that you took a moment to personally respond to me and others here in assuring us that this feature is forthcoming… But you have to admit, scrolling up and down this 2 year old thread, these assurances ring hollow. Sometime in the near future, whether I like it or not, I will arrive at a point where managing the videos in my account will become untenable, and as a matter of practical necessity (as opposed to standing on principle) I will have to look elsewhere. My preference is clearly for that not to happen.

Creative Foundry

Creative Foundry Plus

Well it finally happened.........we have started to use a service that I have to say is incredible.

wipster.io/

I thought a year or so ago that we would never pay for another video service again, but this complete let down by Vimeo (all be it pipeline issues or complete disregard) and the ongoing support from wipster has made this a relatively painless decision.

Firstly this doesn't mean we will be cancelling our subscription, and we will use Vimeo for final delivery. I just wanted to point out a few issues that has allowed another company to take a slice of the pie. All this is In the hope that vimeo can take a look at its own processes and customer feedback, and be aware of what can happen when you stop developing "real world" functions for professional content producers. (as in features that are not selling points but essential in the eyes of your current users)

Creative Foundry

Creative Foundry Plus

Besides the obvious function related to this topic - press the bin icon on any video and it is deleted - as simple as that

There is 2 features which I have to say are so simple and navigate around so many issues its a wonder why vimeo hasn’t thought of it. Both of which save so much time

Firstly - Versions
You can drag as many versions of a video you are working on and upload them in the same window, the client can then select which version to watch and comment on. The newest version is shown first and all other versions stay behind that one incase you need to go back and review earlier edits, graphics etc.

Vimeo however lets you upload 20 of the same video were you label them draft 1, draft 2 etc all adding to a messy channel that is seen by your clients.

Creative Foundry

Creative Foundry Plus

Secondly - Privacy / Clean online profile
The videos are automatically private until you assign people to review them. I know a lot of users use Vimeo for draft review and even roughs from a days shooting. Again no function on Vimeo to password protect all videos before they are uploaded (as youtube has had for years now) but instead have the tedious task of manually select each video to make private or password protect.

Now before this is flagged as some sort of off topic, marketing ploy. You need to understand that this has come about purely through your lack of foresight. Initially there was a thirst from Vimeo to produce something great (maybe that is achieved as a platform for finished products) however that does seem to have run dry in recent years.

Creative Foundry

Creative Foundry Plus

We have used wipster now for around 3 months, in that time they has sent out multiple questionnaires about what features we would like to see. Within a month those feature have been implemented. I am literally talking about seeing it change month by month with big features added.

It is a sadness, as there is no reason why Vimeo can’t cater for all of the above but it seems to be focused on a different path that is not clear to its users. The inconstant fluff and reassurance throughout this thread clearly shows exactly what i am on about.

As a customer who feels completely let down, I just wanted to share our solutions with others who may not be aware.

Vigilante HD

culture fomented within your servers.

Video

Come on Vimeo. Is this just a scam to get users to keep paying for gigabytes of more space? Atleast give us a page where we can remove 10 videos at a time. I too use this service with my Dropbox account and auto-upload a lot of files for work. I have 100's of videos up there that my clients have asked me to remove. What do I say to them? Give me 3 months, I'll slowly pull them down. If I was a competitor right now, I know I'd be targeting Vimeo's PRO users and getting them over with a slicker video management platform.

If you're wondering why it's taking so long for us to develop, think of it like trying to order pizza for millions of people.

Hi Vimeo,

I too would like this feature implemented. I agree with some that maybe it's a Plus and Pro feature - another reason to upgrade.

In case it's just a problem of figuring it out, here's a suggestion of how it could be implemented:

On the My Videos page, you could simply add a column that has a check box by each video. A user could use the existing search to display a 'filtered' set of videos, click the 'Select/unselect ALL' button above the new select column, may be check or uncheck a couple of videos, then click a DELETE button, up pops the password confirmation window and then all the tagged videos are deleted. Having to type a password on delete is a good way to be sure the user definitely wants to trash a whole bunch of videos.

NB, for this suggestion to work at its best, you would need to add an option to list ALL videos rather than just 10 or so at a time. This could be an additional display option of 'List View' (no thumbnails).
Hope that's useful,

J

It seems like Vimeo could benefit hugely by making modules/api tools easier to embed and pimp out our workflow as needed. Some people will want to do everything one step at a time.. others (like myself) would love to batch upload and with one swift motion, give them all the same privacy settings = time to start looking at the API... At the very least, it would be AMAZING to let us create a settings profile for all newly uploaded content + one for our overall videos. There are some features that I globally wanted to set = great and thanks for allowing that... however not having a 'template' for all new uploads = extremely frustrating.

Blake Hodges

Blake Hodges Plus

Adding my voice to the strong desire for the ability to delete multiple videos at once. I would also like to make it easier to delete individual videos. Right now, unless there is a method I am missing, it requires at least 4 clicks and a password entry to delete one video. One to enter the settings of a video from the "My Videos" list, another to click "Delete Video" at the bottom of the page (which must be scrolled to), another to click the "Delete Video" button on the 2nd page in, then after entering my password, a final click to officially "Delete" the video. Sheesh. Thank you for making it difficult to accidentally delete a video, but please, give the power back to the people. Thanks Vimeo team.

Vimeo's still non existent batch delete is the very definition of procrastination - and one guy fixed it with a little app available here http://bit.ly/HC03NI . My housekeeping in deleting preview files for a client on a completed project just became 1000% easier - no thanks to Vimeo on a paid for service. I'm out - especially given the risk taken in running that external app and the nonsense about music rights policing - especially on UNPUBLISHED private videos. That new policy will be a dream to manage on my portfolio for OTHER bona fide licensed production companies going back 10 years... Kids may use unlicensed music on a smartphone video but professionals making an income from productions DO NOT. Or if they do they are very dumb indeed on a paid PRO traceable Vimeo account...
