Hi there. I've compressed files to upload, and obviously the less compression the higher quality, on my computer. Of course it also makes these files larger. I have no problem uploading them - Pro account, good internet service - but does the large size make it slower to download, or does Vimeo convert them to a standard streaming format so it makes no difference? At what point does it become irrelevant if I make my video high quality before I upload?

Thanks - Nigel

The larger the file, the longer it's going to take somebody to buffer and watch. If you follow our recommended compression settings, you'll find what to use the best balance.
