How to Upload SD/HD Videos to Vimeo on Mac

This tutorial is about how to upload SD/HD Videos to Vimeo by converting them to a format that is accepted by Vimeo site with top quality.

For video shooting videos, a wide variety of devices are used like: camcorders, digital cameras, webcams, cell phones, and more, but most of them save video in non-standard formats. And this may lead to problems, for example when you want to upload SD/HD Videos to Vimeo and the service doesn't support your video's format.

Upload SD/HD Videos to Vimeo

Vimeo is a popular video sharing platform on which users can upload, view and share videos. It has more than 14 million members including music and film artists who use Vimeo to promote and share their work. However, Vimeo only supports such video formats like MP4, WMV, AVI, FLV, MOV, etc. officially. As a Vimeo enthusiast owning a flood of SD/HD Videos, uploading video to Vimeo site is quite a common thing.

And when I find my videos are not supported by Vimeo, I usually use Pavtube Video Converter for Mac to accomplish Video to Vimeo conversion task at first.
