Best vimeo replacement

I must admit, I was initially skeptical about Gumlet. Over the years, I've tried numerous tools to streamline and optimize my video content, but always found myself reverting back to Vimeo. However, my experience with Gumlet has completely changed my perspective. The first thing that caught my eye was Gumlet's comprehensive suite of features. Unlike many other platforms I've previously used, Gumlet provides all the necessary tools that I've been searching for. It's the first service that has been able to successfully replace Vimeo for me. One of the standout features is the video player. The design is sleek, visually appealing, and most importantly, customizable, allowing me to tailor the look and feel of the player to suit my needs. This level of customization is something I've struggled to find elsewhere. Another huge plus is Gumlet's ability to bulk-process videos, a feature that, surprisingly, is still not available on Vimeo. This has significantly improved my workflow, saving me valuable time and effort. However, the main selling point for me has to be the speed at which videos load across all devices. I've found this to be a common issue amongst many video hosting platforms, but not with Gumlet. Regardless of the device, my videos load quickly and smoothly, greatly enhancing the user experience. In summary, my experience with Gumlet has been overwhelmingly positive. I've been incredibly satisfied with the all-round service provided and would highly recommend it to anyone in need of a robust, reliable, and efficient video hosting solution.

PROS

bulk edit your videos very fast streaming great looking player

CONS

bandwidth of 2TB is not that much. This could be higher for the growth plan.

Reasons for switching to Gumlet

too expensive bandwidth, if you need more than 2TB

Gumlet has now replaced our Vimeo hosting!

Absolutely phenomenal - This has been one of our best SAAS subscriptions for a long time. It's so easy to use, and we've had great feedback from our clients and members - we are now going to use this platform for *all* of our video hosting not just our training videos.

PROS

Gumlet is incredibly easy to use, has more than covered our Vimeo requirements that we previously had (Even better than we thought so now it's our only video hosting service), it's so clean and presents so well to the consumer. We have loved how easy this has been.

CONS

Nothing really found yet to complain about but if I *did* have to nitpick it could be that the community help can be a little hard to find some details in - but I'm stretching to complain about this because I still found what we needed in there, it just took me a little while longer than I thought it would.

Reasons for switching to Gumlet

Cost of Vimeo had become too exorbitant for our company and Gumlet's pricing was so much better - I honestly haven't noticed any missing features that we need.

Vendor Response

Hi Andrew, Thank you for the fantastic feedback! We're thrilled to hear that Gumlet has replaced your Vimeo hosting and exceeded your expectations. It's great to know you find it incredibly easy to use and that it covers all your requirements. Noted on the community help feedback; we'll work on improving the accessibility. Happy Streaming!

Fast video streaming with excellent customer support at a good price point

Overall it's been a pretty smooth and positive experience. As mentioned in the Pros and Cons, there were a few small hiccups but their fantastic customer support helped me navigate it pretty quickly. Their system is fast and straightforward and has a good feature set that checked all the boxes I was searching for in a video hosting system: fast, reasonable cost, good amounts of storage and great support if something goes wrong.

PROS

Uploading videos to and playing videos on Gumlet is fast. Other features really like are the auto-subtitles and how they measure your storage by minutes and not file size.However, while I very much like Gumlet's feature set and speed, the thing that has impressed me the most about Gumlet is the customer service. I had an issue where I couldn't upload a video because the system said my video length was too long. I hopped on their chat and they had it fixed in minutes. While I was on the chat they also answered other questions I had about the interface.

CONS

The video organization and editing features are a bit lacking. Specifically, once you upload a video, you can't change the collection you uploaded it to and you can't go back and add a feature like auto subtitles afterwards if you forgot to turn them on during the initial processing. I've had to go back and reupload a couple of files because of this, but luckily their upload speeds are pretty fast.

Reason for choosing Gumlet

Price and negative experiences with their customer service that some of my friends and colleagues have had with them.

Reasons for switching to Gumlet

Adilo has its positive points, but the interface was slow to navigate and it was a bit buggy. I also had issues with their embeddable player not working properly, especially on mobile devices.
