Someone at vimeo made a bad decision to remove the feed we all love as the default landing lage, so im staring a petition to get it back. Im a big time vimeo activist. Lol
This is a true statement. I was confused by this thread because my personal Vimeo account has remained unchanged but when I logged into the company Vimeo account today, I noticed the change. The only difference is that I am on a regular Vimeo account and the company is on a Plus account.
I hate the new admin landing page SO MUCH. That is all.
YES! pretty sure Trump is behind this.
I heard its only if you have a pro account. Also its still the feed on mobile.
I've still got the feed on the home page? Or am I in an area where it's not changed yet?
I thought I was the only one who was bugged by this, since the feed is still available. I loved having the feed and the quick look at stats on the sidebar. It was a great way to start the day, checking out fresh work and any basic activity on my work. I'm not sure why they are pushing the "Projects" on the landing page, and the way it displays your own videos doesn't provide you any insight. It's all a bizarre step backwards. Vimeo's simplicity was one of its main attractions.
Vimeo also changed the "notifications" to alerts of uploads by people you are following, which is completely useless because that's what the feed is effectively for. By over-complicating everything, I definitely spend less time on vimeo than I used to.
Beyond the url workaround, it seems like a big step in the dismantling of the core community of users, and I imagine lowers the numbers across the board of people casually stopping by to see what people are uploading/liking. I used to do this at least once a day, and now maybe only once a week.
That's fair. Don't get me wrong. I was totally pissed when they first started doing it, but now I don't really notice it anymore.
My whole issue with it is them ignoring loyal users. Its less about finding a hack and more about letting them know so maybe they dont ruin anything else. Its also funny to make a petition about a video site.
Yeah. I mean it's not a global solution for Vimeo's platform issues, but it works well on an individual level. aka - It's no longer an issue for me, or anyone else who personalizes their browser.
Or I could bookmark https://www.instagram.com/accounts/edit/ to make instagram feel more like vimeo
I never use it for anything else but hosting our videos.
I just navigate to the feed, then set that as one of your bookmarks in the top bar of the browser so whenever I click on it, it goes straight to the feed. Problem solved. Works the same way as it used to.
I’ve considered cancelling my paid account because I rarely visit vimeo.com anymore.
The one thing that keeps me there is that they don’t flag commercial projects I upload for copyright infringement (be it music or otherwise).
On that topic, anyone use an alternative service?
gotta love capitalism
