Some of the major differences between VideoCrypt and Vimeo are given below:


VideoCrypt provides LIVE to VOD to all its customers in which they can easily record live streaming and convert it to VOD. Here, AWS Elemental MediaPackage facilitates the extraction of clip(s) from live videos so a streaming business can playback it as Video on Demand (VOD).
It provides flexibility and convenience to the viewers as they can watch it anytime without being tied to a tight schedule. However, Vimeo, a popular online streaming platform, does not support LIVE recording of videos.

Live Streaming

VideoCrypt is famous among content creators as it provides a TV-like viewing experience through live streaming with no limitations, for both free and paid versions. This HTTPS live streaming occurs through a process by which a video is streamed over the internet. VideoCrypt supports zero buffering and videos in SD-480p or HD-720p quality.
Unlike VideoCrypt, Vimeo imposes certain limitations on live streaming, especially on basic plans. These plans don’t enable content creators to stream live videos without any interruptions on various social media platforms like YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, etc.

Video Transcoding

VideoCrypt transcodes videos of customers with 30% to 50% more efficiency. It helps to create broadcast-grade live streams and multi-screen content delivery. AWS Elemental MediaConvert combines audio and video capabilities with a web services interface.
With transcoding, a customer only requires to focus on creating and sharing compelling live videos and not on creating suitable infrastructure. But, Vimeo doesn’t transcode video-based files which reduces the cost and complexity to encode videos into multiple media formats.

Pay-as-you-go Pricing

VideoCrypt lets its customers easily adapt to dynamic business requirements, without breaking the bank (No overcommitting of budget). All customers can optimize the video consumption cost using the flexible Pay-as-you-go pricing model. According to this, a customer is required to pay only for the service used and for how long it was used.
It simplifies the pricing budget and lowers the pricing because a customer needs to pay up to 10X lower cost. Here, Vimeo comes with a drawback as it has a fixed billing–billed monthly.

24/7 Dedicated Tech Support

VideoCrypt offers around-the-clock available technical support to its customers. This support works dedicatedly to provide the necessary technical assistance to the customers. VideoCrypt’s cloud consultants are available via call, live chat, and email ID without any extra fee. It allows its customers to speak to its experts on-call by providing them assistance as and when required.
Vimeo also has technical support but no customer can get in touch with them via call. Only email and live chat option is available for the customers to get support from the official Vimeo team. Moreover, Vimeo fails to instantly resolve the queries, especially for the free tier.

Maximize Revenue with SSAI and ADS

VideoCrypt provides its customers with a special feature of letting them earn more revenue through SSAI and ADS. It seamlessly stitches together ads within a video stream before delivering them to the user’s device. It allows them to provide a high-quality viewing experience in SD and HD quality.
However, Vimeo doesn’t support dynamic ad insertion and only allows monetization through Video subscriptions, branded apps, and live events.


It is more than clear to choose the right streaming partner now and VideoCrypt stands out every time when it comes to secured video streaming. It allows every user to easily stream live videos with minimum latency with the power of AWS.
VideoCrypt also offers 24/7 on-call support, enabling users to get assistance. Efficiently store videos by transcoding them through AWS Elemental MediaConvert which Vimeo lacks.
