  1. Vimeo also has full 1280×720 quality on their site.

  2. Thanks! This is a great resource. I was going to do this myself but I’m glad someone is on it already.

    I don’t understand why people put up with youtube. And as along as they keep using it, youtube has no reason to improve their quality. Hopefully information like this can make the masses aware of the options and what they are missing out.

    Please keep up the good work.

  3. I’ll make Revver next on the list!

  4. Can you add Revver to this datasheet? I’m trying to decide where to host my camcorder videos. Thanks.
