These are Frequently Asked Questions from our Contact page, facebook page and emails to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q. Whats the difference (advantage) of using Vidmeup vs. Vimeo? I feel like it might serve the same function?
A. At vidmeup we are big fans of vimeo - a community of people sharing their videos. However vidmeup is a different type of service that allows you to create your own video site with your own domain and even remove the branding. With vidmeup there are many special features including our large storage limits please see our packages page.
Q. What is the best resolution and format to host videos on your site? Is there a How To Document?
A. The best format in our opinion is .mp4 at 720px,
you may try larger resolution up to 1024px - if you want really HD quality.
also see our general format guide at http://www.vidmeup.com/pages/video-formats/29/
Q. Do you have an HTML5 video player for mobile? Can the player be branded?
A. vidmeup uses our unique html5 player for mobiles and with our plus package our branding is removed and you can upload your own logo to display in the player.
Q. I want to know if you have a suitable package i can use to create a dummy version of say business news channel
Can i use vidmeup with no branding and relevant layout and functionality as in examples above?
A. Yes this possible with our plus package and you can create a custom template to achieve the desired layout or choose from one already made - please see this page
Q. I am a novice & need more info before joining. My objective is to have family members from all over the world send short video greetings to me to one location for my parents' 60th anniv. Then I want to download all those videos to a DVD to play for my parents on their cruise. Will your site let me do this? Thank you
A. Yes this is possible with the vidmeup Premium package,
as for the dvd encoding you can search in google for free third party software for downloading and converting your videos.
Q. How do I resize the video embed code on my site or blog?
A. You need to adjust the src attribute as well as the width and hieght, for example;
before: <iframe src="http://www.vidmeup.com/vid/yourvideo/720x480/" width="720" height="480" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe>
after: <iframe src="http://www.vidmeup.com/vid/yourvideo/400x200/" width="400" height="200" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe>
