    Its not necessarily YouTube. Its the various associations of Music Ownerships that do it. Eventually, they will get around to Vimeo.

    You keep asking how the others are allowed to be there. The answer has been given... They filed a Fair Use claim and it was accepted. It did seem like a bit of work to me as well, so I chose to go Vimeo. But if you insist on YouTube, then you are going to have to go that route.

    Even the YouTube "fair use" dispute is hit or miss. I uploaded the same EXACT WIW 2009 sequence that was rejected last year and once again, it was automatically taken down by their filters. I again filed another "fair use" claim using the EXACT wording (I save it in a text file the previous year) as before, and this time it was approved.

    Go figure...

    I gave up last year trying to post on YouTube. Switched over to Vimeo and it has been great.

    I even subscribed since I post a lot of HD videos. Really top notch service.

    As Dirknerkle says... they really like MPEG4 files. Never have had an issue.

    I apologize for the thread necro, but this is the only thread I can find on this subject in the forums.

    I recently had a video of mine blocked worldwide by NBC Universal and I just filed a copyright claim dispute at YouTube. I will update later with the results...

    I agree, Youtube gets to be a pain. They kept taking down my videos and I would file dispute over and over for videos and I finally gave up.
    I would use Vimeo, but I can't seem to get any videos to play with Firefox (running V9.0.1), so I have to use Internet Explorer for this.
    Has anyone else had this issue?

    I don't use Firefox, so I can't comment on that specifically. I can only say that I have never had a problem with Chrome.

    I feel like even though it is less "patrolled" than Youtube, it is only a matter of time before Vimeo falls in line with the other video hosting sites and begins operating like YouTube.

    Edit: I haven't heard anything about my copyright dispute yet, but immediately after I filed the claim my video was again available globally.

    Technically i guess they could start getting grumpy at people who use music on their actual displays. Not just videos of the displays.. We'll be stuck to having to use royalty free music.

    My understanding is that royalties are only demanded when there is commerce involved (sing "Happy Birthday" on a street corner? OK. Sing it in a restaurant? Pay the man, who happens to be the media conglomerate Time-Warner.).

    But then I'm not a lawyer and do not even play one on TV, so I could be wrong.
