How to Use Rev’s Vimeo Integration for Captions
At Rev, we understand that a lot goes into creating video content. Beyond production, it’s also important to consider how to caption video content and where to host it. Vimeo is a top-performing video hosting platform that focuses on delivering high-definition video to support businesses and content creators.
How can hosting on Vimeo support your video strategy?
First, Vimeo is free of ads and makes it possible to replace video content without losing your important stats and rankings. Vimeo also tends to attract a more supportive community of users who offer constructive feedback on videos.
Next, Vimeo easily supports adding closed captions to videos. Using closed captions is considered a best practice for many reasons. Most of all, captions improve accessibility and SEO ensuring that video content reaches a broader audience.
What’s the easiest way to caption Vimeo videos?
Captioning Vimeo videos yourself is easiest using Rev’s seamless integration with Vimeo.

Just choose the Vimeo option when ordering captions on rev.com, and all of your public videos will be available for captioning. You can pull them directly from your Vimeo account to Rev.
What are the benefits of using a Vimeo captions integration?
Not only are videos captioned by professionals, but those captions are uploaded directly to your video the second they are done, eliminating a lot of time-consuming admin work.
