Round 1: Pricing

Vimeo ProVzaar
$17/month ($200/year) for 1024 GBFrom $20/ month for 100 GB Storage


Winner: Vimeo Pro!

Both Vimeo Pro and Vzaar offer a stripped back free version (though Vimeo cannot be used for commercial and business purposes). The storage offered by the basic Vzaar package is 100GB (with 250GB bandwidth, good if you have a few videos with a lot of traffic) but the advanced features are not available until you pay for the ‘professional’ package at $200/month. For low volumes of HQ video Vimeo Pro is better.

Winner: Vzaar

Vzaar wins here – but only from the $200/month package onwards. For the basic package, the feature list is almost equal although Vzaar has slightly more functionality. Vimeo Pro still has the best features relating to monetization through the Vimeo on Demand and Tip Jar service. Vimeo Pro has analytics features which are better than the basic package Vzaar analytics but worse than the business package.

Winner: Vzaar!

Vzaar wins again with a medium level of integration capability. WordPress, Youtube, and Hubspot are all supported internally. Vzaar only integrates with Hubspot rather than Salesforce but its MailChimp  app 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: Vzaar!

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
