I started using Vimeo but then they became more restrictive then YouTube on music copyright. 

Same here.  I even paid for my membership because they let me use any music that I wanted.  They still did point out that if the copyright owners of said music kicked up a stink then they would remove it - but I accepted that.  Then they went all 'net nanny' on me and wouldn't let me use third party music.  So I said F... you and cancelled my membership.  Using third party music for youtube/vimeo vids benefits the artist - in my opinion.  I have heard many tracks on videos that I've gone out of my way to then find and buy.  It's good advertising - providing the music is properly credited on the video and it's a not a commercial video.  Copyright law, however, does not agree with me.

Third Party Music? That's a a new one, never heard of that. Does that mean if it does not come from Vimeo's sound track selection it gets kicked out? I can imagine users will be leaving by the droves if they do that. Still reckon you should pay for the music you use. My gripe with Vimeo is the megabyte limit so I go where is no limit and it's free -- YouTube, and don't start with all the /$/:&;$(&/:;,$&:$.&:$( about compression as it is an unacceptaby poor compromise.

Doesn't anyone else find vimeo only plays exactly 11 seconds and then spends 30 seconds buffering? Regardless of what machine/internet you're on?

I strike that occasionally with Vimeo although not the 11 seconds bit.  I wasn't able to watch Joel's latest vid all the way through on the first few tries - it kept getting to 1:20 or thereabouts and the buffering seemed to freeze so I just downloaded it (which I would have done anyway).   Vimeo is definitely a little weird sometimes.

      Things you find on youtube. (well found it through science alert actually) here is my new favourite playlist.
      Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has just uploaded a ton of recently declassified nuclear test films.
      DOE has already put a lot of footage from the late 40's through to the more recent tests. however this LLNL dump is a great resource.
