RokuGuide Quick Look: Vimeo is a video sharing site founded by a group of filmmakers who wanted to share their creative work. On the Vimeo website, you can watch Staff Picks, purchase On Demand videos, browse by Categories and Channels, and join groups. On Roku, your options are more limited. If you haven't linked the Vimeo Roku channel to your Vimeo account, you'll only be able to browse Staff Picks, although you do have the ability to search and to watch the videos that are returned.
Once you link to your Vimeo account, you will also have direct access to videos you've uploaded, videos in your Vimeo inbox, and videos you've marked as "Like" and "Watch Later". Accounts are free, although you can purchase upgraded accounts if you plan to upload your own videos and need more space than the free account provides. Vimeo on Roku also allows users to "like" videos directly from Roku, and you're given the options to watch all videos by the producer of the video you're currently watching.
