Regarding the bandwidth “2TB” when live streaming on vimeo

about-vimeo-monthly-bandwidth-threshold-of-2tb

Vimeo allows you to stream live (live events).

Regarding “2TB” when live streaming using vimeo,

Some of you may be interested.

Although YouTube allows live streaming for free,

If you are looking into live streaming on vimeo, you probably

“I would like to use some kind of billing system to perform live streaming only for users who have paid.”

It is thought that

I think that’s why you’re considering Vimeo.

If you use Vimeo, your account has a bandwidth limit of 2TB per month .

“Bandwidth” is similar to “data transfer amount” or “communication amount.”

When signing up for a SIM card for your smartphone,

There are such things as a “3GB plan” and a “5GB plan.”

“3GB” and “5GB” refer to the “monthly data amount” included in the plan.

When you use your smartphone to watch videos on YouTube or browse the internet, this amount of data is consumed.

Vimeo’s “bandwidth of up to 2TB per month” has the same concept.

Well then,

In reality, the key question is, “How many users and how many live streams do we need to watch without exceeding 2TB?”

Regarding this point, the official website of Vimeo states the following:



Please note that the majority of Vimeo users (over 99%) do not reach their monthly bandwidth limit, so you should not be pressured into paying for additional bandwidth.

In other words,

“In your case, I’m sure you won’t fall under the 1%, so it’s okay!”

That’s what I’m saying.

I would like an explanation that includes a case study, but this is too abstract.

Please contact Vimeo customer support in English.

“How many users and how much live streaming do we need to watch without exceeding 2TB?”

Even if you ask them, they won’t give you any specifics.

At Jepista, we have developed video distribution membership services, including live streaming , for many customers.

And some of our customers were using vimeo,

Some people suddenly say, “I received a notification from Vimeo” one day.

“Notification from Vimeo” is a notification sent from Vimeo when the 2TB limit is exceeded.

In this area, when we say “sudden notification from Vimeo”,

It may be something that goes without saying.

In any case,

Jepista receives a lot of information about things like “I received a notification from Vimeo!”.

Return the story.

“How large should a live broadcast be without exceeding 2TB?”

It’s about things like that.

A good rule of thumb for this is to “livestream once a week with no more than 200 viewers.”

As a point to note,

Since there are many variables, the above guideline may vary significantly depending on the situation.

For example, “variables” are as follows.

  1. How many users will watch the live broadcast in full?
    → Some people will leave midway through or join midway through.
  2. The viewing resolution differs depending on the user
    – some watch at 1080p, others at 720p or 480p. Some people watch it on smartphones, while others watch it on tablets and PCs.

  3. The amount of bandwidth consumed varies depending on the physical distance between each user and the server. For example, if one user is watching from the US and another is from Japan, the bandwidth consumption will naturally differ.
  4. Capacity of the content itself to be distributed live
    →For example, the content capacity will naturally differ between distributing “live music” and distributing “live chat”.

In other words, although I have told you this as a guideline,


Bandwidth consumption varies depending on the type of live broadcast, the type of audience, and their viewing behavior .

If you are considering live streaming on vimeo,

1. “The bandwidth limit will be reached relatively quickly” and

2. Regarding the point that “the amount charged is not disclosed and is unclear” ,

You have to be careful.

By using live streaming,

Due to exceeding the bandwidth limit,

“One day, I suddenly received a charge of 2 million yen from Vimeo!”

This is often a hot topic among Vimeo users.

Isn’t this a “hoax”? There are also comments on the internet such as,

This is true.

Although,

I have never heard of someone claiming 2 million yen to be automatically debited.

I think it’s okay in that respect.

Jepista’s service to develop “membership service for video distribution” ,

Unlike vimeo,

You can conduct live streaming with a number of simultaneous connections such as “10,000” or “100,000”.

Also, with vimeo, there is a “bandwidth limit”,

There are no “bandwidth limitations” when performing “live distribution” with Jepista’s development service.

Furthermore, in vimeo, if the “bandwidth exceeds 2TB”,

A sudden bill arises,

The amount charged may range from several hundred thousand yen to several million yen .

I have no idea what it’s based on

They will charge you an unclear market price,

When performing “live distribution” with Jepista’s development service,

In order to “calculate the cost per viewing user”,

It’s a very easy calculation.

Jepista’s development service “Jepista Prime”

Also, at Jepista, you can create a live streaming service,

It can also be used as an “iOS app” or “Android app”, so

I can recommend it with confidence.
