Vimeo - It's like YouTube, but better!
Vimeo allows the UI to provide faculty and staff with an interface that's similar to YouTube, but with much higher quality files.
- Video Codec: MP4 H.264, 1000-3000 kbps
- Audio Codec: AAC, 320 kbps, 44.1 kHz
- Resolution: 853x480
- More info: See Vimeo’s Video Compression Guidelines
Keep in mind that if you want to allow students to download the video, 3000 kbps will potentially produce a VERY large file. Vimeo recompresses everything into their flash format for online playback, but the downloadable version of the lecture is posted as the original file. So, the smaller you make it, the more manageable it’ll be for you to upload, and for students to deal with on their ipod/iphone/etc.
An easy way to make your video file size smaller, while still having a good looking video, is to reduce the frame rate. In most low motion video you can’t tell the difference between 30fps and 15fps, and if you go with 15fps you’ll cut the file size in half.
Another method of reducing file size is to lower the data rate to something closer to 1000kbps.
Distance and Extended Education (DEE) is unable to assist with the online delivery of copyrighted audio and video media. We do not have the legal expertise nor the staff available to review files and screen for issues. Fair Use and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act are both complicated pieces of legislation, and by most accounts subjective. We encourage individuals to secure written permission whenever possible and to weigh these Fair Use factors:
- The purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes
- The nature of the copyrighted work
- The amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole
- The effect of the use upon the potential market for, or value of, the copyrighted work
U.S. Copyright office states "The distinction between fair use and infringement may be unclear and not easily defined. There is no specific number of words, lines, or notes that may safely be taken without permission."
The DEE asks that individuals use one of many online hosted services such as YouTube, Vimeo and TeacherTube to deliver video clips, adhering carefully to the hosted site’s policies.
