Round 1: Pricing

Vimeo ProSproutvideo
$17/month ($200/year) for 1024 GBFrom $25/ month for 100 GB Storage


Winner: Vimeo Pro!

Vimeo Pro offers a stripped back free version (though it cannot be used for commercial and business purposes) and while the paid Sproutvideo packages start at $25 a month, you have to get the $50 a month package to unlock all the features. For $25 a month, you get 100GB of storage (though only 50GB of bandwith) so for low video volumes Vimeo Pro could suit your business better.

Winner: Sproutvideo wins again, although neither have very strong integration stats.

Sproutvideo only integrates with Infusionsoft rather than Salesforce but its MailChimp support makes it a good bet for email marketing. Vimeo Pro, while it supports HTML5 does not have great integration support officially. The API is open for developers to make their own additions.

The battle score

Overall Winner: Sproutvideo!

But you might prefer Vimeo Pro if:

  • You have a smaller budget
  • You want to use the Vimeo on Demand and Tip Jar monetization features
  • You are a design or creative professional – Vimeo has the highest video quality
  • You need 20GB of video per week, or less
