Founded by Jake Lodwick and Zach Klein in November 2004, Vimeo is a website that allows users to upload and share videos with one another. As of December 2013, the website, Vimeo.com has over 100 million hits per month.
The website supports HD video and since August 2010, encodes all uploaded videos into the H.264 format for HTML5 compatibility. Standard users, called non-Plus users, are allowed to upload a total of 500 MB of standard definition and one HD video per week. Plus users, who pay a $60 premium each year, are allowed to upload a total of 5 GB of video per week, including an unlimited number of HD videos. A PRO membership is also available, allowing a total of 50 GB of video uploads a week.
