In a move sure to attract some great content Vimeo is now offering files up to 5 gigs. That’s about 2.5 hours of HD video. Vimeo staff writer Blake Whitman says the larger size has been a frequent request from users and the move means “filmmakers can upload full-feature films in HD” and “people who don’t want to waste time compressing videos before uploading them can finally skip that step if they wish and upload videos directly from the camera.

This is a great move for Vimeo and should result in some good indie film content.
