Compare it with the quicktime - I guess I'm very biased because I sweat blood and tears to render, capture and compress this properly but IMHO the Flash conversion process really messed up the colors on this one, and the brightness is set waaaay down (my original video was too bright by 15-20% in the first place).

Is there some further preparation we can apply to videos before uploading them that would improve the output? I followed your HD guide to the letter though.

I'm reading this again and I feel almost picky - Vimeo rocks! I just want it to be perfect :)

Yes I've been experimenting with special processing for Vimeo and the web. It seems that anything from 85% black and up gets crushed to 100% black. Try taking the gamma down to .8 when you output. Compression programs usually hve it as an option. This will also help compensate for PC gammas and crappy-ass old tube monitors.
