Vimeo Joins YouTube, And Adopts The HTML5 Video Player

We just talked about YouTube and their brand new shiny HTML5 video player. It seems that Vimeo is the quick brown fox that jumps over the lazy dog and adopts the HTML5 player as well, which is  an alternative to the current Flash player that looks and works almost exactly the same way. What are the benefits?

  • The player loads right away — no more spinning butterfly thingy
  • You can jump anywhere in the video, without having to wait for it to buffer
  • Smoother, less jumpy playback (we hope)

Let the good times roll…
