    Hi all.
    As many of you, I am getting a headache from Youtube and thinking of signing up for Vimeo.
    My question is, is it OK to upload my Youtube videos to Vimeo?
    I am worried that if I do that, Youtube might delete my account as a retaliation.
    But my logic is, since I made those videos, I should be able to upload them to Youtube AND Vimeo at the same time if I want to.
    Still not sure how Youtube will react if I choose to do so.
    What do you think?

    I know that sounds paranoid but from my experience, Youtube is like a jealous ex-girlfriend hellbent for vengeance when it didn't get what it wanted.
    Logically, I should do whatever I want with my videos but I just don't trust Youtube and their employees for a second.

    What I do is upload video first to YouTube, then send out to as many video sharing sites as possible. Put a link back to your youtube video on each of the other video sites. This will help with backlinks as people who scrape youtube video descriptions (as they often do) will take your link, too.

    Vimeo and Dailymotion videos rarely get taken down, if they do, it won't change the status of the YouTube video. Just use an MD5 hashed if you're paranoid ;)

    What i do is use power director for free (Torrent A Free Version)

    Then add a watermark by making a PNG of your site text. Some colors of the text convert better, which colors? Up to you to find out;)

    Next clip like 2 seconds of the vid out from wherever.

    Easy way too fool youtube to think its a different vid. Remember their bots do scan your vid for duplicate content.

    Hope that helped. Anyone here, feel free to add me on skype:ericsebastion Ill be happy to lead you in the right direction.

    You're able to upload both the same video, I wouldn't recommend it for SEO reasons, instead as the person above said, modify the a single frame. (possible add a watermark)
