I set up an account on vimeo about a year ago, but haven't uploaded anything to vimeo for about six months. Part of the reason was the 20 MB per week limitation. The other reason was that I got hooked on Revver, which sticks an ad to the end of the videos, potentially generating money if clicked. That works out to about a $1 a day for me, but most of that revenue comes from my 1 or 2 (out of 100) videos that are vaguely popular. Now I think that a great number of my videos are better off ad-free -- I'd like to embed my videos in my website ad-free.
Anyway, after searching around for a video host, I've come back to Vimeo. It seems to be ad-free, with good video quality, and not sleazy.
I wonder, then, how does Vimeo make its money? It seems like nothing that is ad-free on the internet is free.
Thanks for any response.
