What is Vimeo? - Definition from WhatIs.com
Part of the Internet applications glossary:

Vimeo is a video-sharing website that allows members to view, upload and share videos.

Members can choose between Vimeo's free service and a number of paid services aimed at helping organizations control how their videos appear on the Internet. Vimeo's free services allow members to employ a number of creative tools in order to enhance videos, add music tracks and pull from Creative Commons-licensed videos. Vimeo also provides users with a video school to improve their own video production for long-term personal or financial gain.

Paid services from Vimeo.com include Vimeo Plus, Vimeo PRO and Vimeo for Business. Vimeo for Business gives users better search engine visibility, removes third-party advertisements and allows for Dropbox integration.
