"To This Day"

A beautiful animated short film paired with powerful spoken word poetry. I haven’t been this deeply moved in a long time. The film touches on the topic of bullying in a poignant, impactful way. Powerful, powerful stuff, people. If you have 8 minutes. Watch this. Now. And share it with your friends. Can’t stress this enough. Here’s a synopsis below:

To This Day Project is a project based on a spoken word poem written by Shane Koyczan (shanekoyczan.com) called “To This Day”, to further explore the profound and lasting impact that bullying can have on an individual.

Schools and families are in desperate need of proper tools to confront this problem. We can give them a starting point… A message that will have a far reaching and long lasting effect in confronting bullying.

Animators and motion artists brought their unique styles to 20 second segments that will thread into one fluid voice.

This collaborative volunteer effort will demonstrate what a community of caring individuals are capable of when they come together.

Vimeo now has movies.
This is a pretty big step for Independent/Amateur film-makers and a path for easy distribution to target audiences. Cool beans.
vimeo:

Today we’re releasing six full-length movies as a preview of our new pay-to-view service coming in early 2013.You can purchase these movies right here on Vimeo and watch them on any compatible device: smartphones, tablets, game consoles, connected TVs, and other alien technologies. These films — hand-picked by us and thereby deemed certifiably awesome — are exemplars of a new age of creative sustainability, one in which creators can sell their own work directly to their fans on their own terms.

Vimeo, Reloaded.
I love Vimeo. I’ve always seen them as the Chili’s of video hosting sites, while YouTube is McDonald’s. This is great, can’t wait to try out all the new features. I’ll be interested to see if anything will change with embeds or player functionality. It’s probably just a web/user experience overhaul, but one can hope.


vimeo:
Today is a big day - one of the biggest in the short-ish history of our small-ish company. For the past year (37 years in Internet time), we’ve been working nonstop on a project that we’ve desperately wanted to tell you about. Because, frankly, it’s all about you. Our willpower muscles are pretty much at the breaking point right now, and so we are doubly ecstatic to finally let the tiger out of the satchel and make this officially official announcement: We built you a new Vimeo.
To learn more about these new big things in more detail, head over to vimeo.com/new. It’s also the place where members can sign up to try the new Vimeo as we roll it out over the next few weeks. Go ahead - you know you want to check it out!

We’ve all been there— in that sweaty, editing-induced fervor, down to the deadline with nothing left to do but add a soundtrack. Scrambling to find music for your project shouldn’t be painful, it should be fun! With this in mind, we created the handy Vimeo Music Store, a convenient new resource for finding, downloading and licensing high quality music for your videos.

What makes Music Store so great? Take a look at the video above for a detailed tutorial!

For the full lesson, head over to The Vimeo Video School.

LOVE THIS SO MUCH!!!

Whoa. When the %#^! did this happen!? YES.

Tumblr Vimeo Embeds

matthewb:

In August I revised my jQuery code for restoring customisation to Flash-based Vimeo embeds on Tumblr, with a version that supports Vimeo’s new universal syntax. The new script found every instance of Flash-based embed code and replaced it with universal <iframe> code (including customisations for colour and metadata visibility), making it useful for legacy content.

Over the past week Tumblr has changed its approach, and now converts all legacy Vimeo code to universal, preserving customisations where they were previously set. This renders the previous version of the script largely redundant, so I’ve extended it to override the default customisations, for users who were previously relying on my script to perform these en masse.

The script now has a new permanent home via Tumblr’s static page support. Please let me know if you encounter any problems.

Good to know. I’ll roll this script into my blog redesign. (Oh yea, forgot to tell you guys that’s happening…again. haha)

Better HTML5 Vimeo embeds on Tumblr

Matthew Buchanan just updated his Vimeo remix script in accordance with Vimeo’s HTML5 updated embed script. Totally gonna update this on my blog later today. for a better frame of reference as to what I’m referring to, here’s the link to his old script and what it does. Keep in mind it is the old version, you should replace it with what’s below.

matthewb:

Today Vimeo released its long-awaited “universal” embed code which utilises an <iframe> in place of the previous <object> tag. This new approach enables Vimeo to detect the type of device requesting playback, and to serve the appropriate format and resolution for the device, rather than failing if the Flash player was missing (as the old code did).

Along with the new default embed code, Vimeo provides an “Embedinator” script that, when included on any site, replaces occurrences of the old embed code with the new format. I’ve rewritten this script as a jQuery function with the added benefit that it reduces clutter by hiding the avatar, title and user of the clip from displaying in the playback frame. As with my previous script, you can also set a custom colour for selected parts of the interface.

Here’s a version bundled with jQuery that you can copy directly into the <head> of your theme template. The function is included below and should replace any previous version you’re using:

$(function() {
    var color = "55cc55";
    $("object[data^='http://vimeo.com']").each(function() {
        var $obj = $(this);
        var data = $obj.attr("data");
        var temp = data.split("clip_id=")[1];
        var id = temp.split("&")[0];
        var server = temp.split("&")[1];
        var w = $obj.attr("width");
        var h = $obj.attr("height");
        $obj.replaceWith(
            "<iframe src='http://player.vimeo.com/video/"+id+
            "?"+server+"&title=0&byline=0&portrait=0&color="+color+"' "+
            "width='"+w+"' height='"+h+"' frameborder='0'></iframe>"
        );
    });
});

I’ll roll this into my premium themes in the next week or two.

Vimeo Releases Embeddable HTML5 Video Player

readwriteweb.com

That certainly is a game changer.

cameronmoll:

Adrianne Jeffries, writing for ReadWriteWeb:

Vimeo is releasing a ‘universal player’ today that allows user to watch embedded Vimeo videos on mobile devices including the iPhone and iPad using the video playback capability built into the new HTML5 standard.

Vimeo will deliver the optimal player — Flash, HMTL5 or native — based on a user’s browser, as well as the appropriate video definition (HD, SD, mobile) and compression standard (H.264 or WebM, an open format developed for use with HTML5).

Also announced is an Instapaper-style feature:

Vimeo also announced a ‘watch later’ button today that will cue videos up in a playlist for users to catch up on when they get home from work. The ‘watch later’ feature is also cued up to be added to Vimeo’s Application Programming Interface, or API.
