It's okay, but not the greatest.

Vimeo is okay, not great; but okay.

The interface wasn't so bad; but the CYA factor for the site itself was a bit aggravating.

If I'm making a tribute type of video, using Bob Dylan's music, and I'm not charging money or allowing downloading of same; why am I restricted as long as I give credit to the artist?

I also find that many websites will only accept YouTube embedding code. What the hell?
If there are other sites, why limit yourself (and your users) to using one website's embedding code?

It's okay, but don't get your hopes up.

Better site, in my opinion, is 4Shared.Com ye can share documents, images, music, and video.

I was going to embed a video here, but Lunch.Com's "Embed Media" link doesn't seem to be functioning.

I think Vimeo is superior to YouTube, the interface is much more pleasant to look at, and the uploading process is streamline.

Vimeo was one of the first places I found to host HD quality video. I like the interface better than YouTube
