“How can I upload .VOB format files to vimeo.com? I’ve tried Quickplayer and Windows movie maker and neither have worked.”
Vimeo gives users around the world a good place to upload, store, and share their videos over the worldwide web. Depending on your type of account, there are many file formats that Vimeo supports. Vimeo recommends videos that use the H.264 codec. MOV and MP4 files are two of the most common files uploaded over at the site. AVI and MKV are supported as well. However, VOB is not included in the list. In order to share your VOB files on Vimeo, you may have to encode/re-encode VOB to Vimeo friendly format first. Here’s how:
Step 1: Download and install Brorsoft Video Converter, a powerful video converter, player and editor.
PS: The app can help you convert VOB to Vimeo highly compatible H.264 MOV or MP4 without losing much quality. Its built-in video editor can change the VOB files according to your taste, you can add watermarks, trim the video length, change video visual effects and more. If you’re a Mac user, please turn to Video Converter for Mac.
Step 2: Launch the converter and drag your VOB files to the program. You can also add MKV, AVI, MPG, etc. files.
Step 3: As has been stated above, Vimeo supports MP4, etc video files. So you can just select “Common Video” > “H.264 Video(*.mp4)” as the output video format.
Step 4: Trim/Edit VOB files – Since Vimeo has limitations about the uploading video size and length, please pay attention to the video size when converting VOB movies for Vimeo. Here we should highlight the trim function on this software. Just click “Edit” to trim the VOB videos to get the very part you want. Besides trimming, cropping, adding watermark, adjusting special effect, are well supported as well.
Step 5: When all these settings are ready, you can click the “Convert” button to begin the VOB to Vimeo conversion. When the encoding task is done, you can click on “Open” button to locate the ripped videos.
How to Load Video on Vimeo and the Video Formats it Support
To upload videos on Vimeo, you must first be a member of the website. There are two membership options to choose from, paid and free. Logging in through Facebook is also possible. Once you’ve successfully set up your account, you should be ready to upload. Here’s how:
- Step 1. Make sure that the video file you own falls under the Vimeo file supported formats. If it doesn’t, you’ll have to convert them first.
- Step 2. While logged into your account, go to the My Videos Tab and upload videos from there. Or look for where it says Upload in order to add videos directly. Click on ‘Choose a Video to Upload’ button and browse through the video file on your hard drive. Vimeo also supports mobile uploads, uploads using the desktop app, or uploads via Dropbox.
- Step 3. Wait for the file to be completely transferred into Vimeo’s server. Check the status bar on your screen. Once it is done, you can check on the My Videos tab again to see if the video you just added shows up there. That indicates that the upload was successful.
