Vimeo Launches New Xbox 360 App for LIVE Gold MembersBy: Josh Wolford - December 18, 2012
Vimeo is now on your Xbox 360. The company has just announced an all new Vimeo app for Xbox LIVE that you can download and enjoy today, considering you have an Xbox LIVE Gold account.
The video screen on the new Vimeo for Xbox app included descriptions, credits, and related videos. Logged-in users can also like and share videos as well as follow users from inside the app.
Oh yeah, and Vimeo HD videos are in HD. Which is one of the main reason you would want a Vimeo app on your console – so good on you Vimeo.
Here are some of the other cool things about Vimeo’s new Xbox 360 app, according to Vimeo:
- Vimeo in HD on your giant TV: You know, the way you watch everything else.
- Continuous play: Turn on your feed, your Watch Later queue, or an Album of your favorites and then wonder where three hours went. Or create a party Album to play in the background during your next shindig.
- Voice and gesture controls with Kinect for Xbox 360: Just tell your Xbox what you want, like it’s your buddy. Maybe soon you’ll be able to control Vimeo with your MIND.*
- Connect your Xbox LIVE account to Vimeo: See your Xbox LIVE friends’ activity and stay logged into Vimeo whenever you’re on Xbox LIVE.
For Xbox users, their video streaming options are expanding rapidly. They now have Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, YouTube, Vimeo, and more at their fingertips.
Late last month, Vimeo launched an totally redesigned iPhone app that was faster as brought better navigation and background video uploading.
