Description: is a unique and widely popular video-sharing site. The site maintains a usual clean "web 2.0" CSS layout and is very simple looking from a U.I. standpoint. Vimeo was created by Connected Ventures, LLC based in Manhattan and Portland for the personal enjoyment and entertainment of the users. Vimeo came into existence in November 2004. Visitors can upload video to share with people and friends via a contact's list.

One of the better features of Vimeo is that it makes most videos easily accessible. All videos are converted to Quicktime, making them easy to view. Vimeo supports embedding and video downloads, and allows user-commenting on each video page. Comments on videos are kept very clean and orderly. Users are required to register before uploading the contents. Registered users may also create a profile and upload small pictures. (Source:
