No gaming videos in Vimeo

Posted on: July 24, 2008

Video hosting site vimeo has announced that they no longer allow game videos on the site. Videos such as "game walk-throughs, game strategy videos, depictions of player vs player battles, raids, fraps, or any other video gaming videos that simply depict individuals playing a video game." will be subjected to deletion from September 1.

According to them such videos don’t meet the standard of "creative expression" that the site is trying to uphold. Gaming videos sometimes expose Vimeo to liability from the game creator(s). Gaming videos are by nature significantly larger and longer than any other genre on Vimeo thus slowing down transcoding times for the other content.

Apparently an interesting debate has started in the comments section as users wonder why such a popular genre is being deleted but there are some who are relieved that such content are deleted.
