If it's not just the same as playing back in 1080p - which it appears not to be - then what does it do and when should I use it?

Yes - it upgrades it to 1080p instead of 720p

Thanks Mark. And I already know it's not working at all in New Vimeo, but I was trying to correct it in Old Vimeo temporarily.

So that begs two questions:

1. I presume it's only feasible/applies if the source file I upload is already in 1080p?

2. And if Upgrade just does 1080p playback, why is there a separate checkbox for "1080p version"/"Play video in 1080p"?

Hi,

  1. Yes. The source file must be 1080p

  2. This is because if unless otherwise specified (via the 1080p check box), all HD videos are shown in 720p.

I have tried to check the 1080p box but nothing happens. How can I get 1080p to my videos?

Many thanks,

This is broken right now - we're working on it, sorry for the inconvenience!

thanks dude, just saw that in the forum last night. Have returned to the old vimeo as I really like the 1080p playback. Anyway, the new Vimeo looks and feels awesome so I look forward to when its fully set with all the bells and whistles. Thanks for the info pal.
