How to store USB files on the Cloud

There are many cloud storage services available.  Below are the 3 we would recommend, along with pros and cons for each.

1 - Vimeo

Pros - High quality video player with no ads.  Easy to share entire HD wedding as one password protected link with anyone, anywhere, anytime.  This link can play the scenes in sequence like a DVD player.

Cons - Most expensive, costs just over $100 per year.  If your paid service ends, you lose access to some of your videos. 

2 - Google Drive

Pros - Least expensive option.  Most people have a google account already so it is easy to set up Google Drive.

Cons - Not a very good media player.  Wedding has to be shared as individual links.  Entire wedding cannot be viewed in full, user needs to select each scene.  You lose media files if your paid service lapses. 

3 - Dropbox

Pros - Medium price range.  Built-in desktop software that enables easy use on your computer.  

Cons - Poor media player.  Wedding videos have to be shared as individual links, or a folder link with links inside.  Entire wedding cannot be viewed in full, user needs to select each scene. 

 

In the below tutorial, we demonstrate how to share your whole HD wedding as ONE link using Vimeo.
