Missing video DRM 
protection in Vimeo?

Vimeo does not provide DRM protection with their hosting plans and only allows enabling DRM to enterprise Vimeo OTT sellers. Some users have also raised support tickets to confirm the same and here is a copy of the reply vimeo support provided.

DRM protection is a necessity nowadays due to increasing cases of illegal downloads and distribution of media and eLearning content. It obviously has a cost of setup, licensing and usage but when you acquire the technical acumen of setting up a large scale, error free and efficient architecture, it obviously turns out to be highly affordable. For example, in our comparison section below, we have listed VdoCipher’s multi-DRM video hosting on AWS infrastructure pricing and you can easily figure out at what cost you are missing DRM.

Comparing Top Alternative with better pricing

Although vimeo is a popular video platform, it lacks certain features and technological advancements. The recent increase in its pricing and change of the pricing model, which is now limited to the number of videos a user uploads, viewers are exploring vimeo alternatives.

One such alternative that offers complete video hosting and streaming infrastructure with Google Widevine + Apple FairPlay DRM Encryption at affordable pricing is VdoCipher. Trusted by over 3000 customers spread across 120+ countries, VdoCipher offers secure and streamlined video hosting services to major elearning and media businesses.

This makes it very clear that there are many features you are missing in vimeo and that is why it becomes more necessary to compare the best alternative with better pricing as discussed below. The least pricing plan a user can have from vimeo is $108/year and that from VdoCipher is just $99/year. This $99 spend is far better than vimeo’s $108 spend as the affordable one comes with far advanced features like DRM, dynamic watermarking, etc.
