Worried about Vimeo’s latest? Don’t worry, there’s Wipster


Worried about Vimeo’s latest news? Don’t worry, there’s Wipster...

The filmmaking world was shaken today by Vimeo’s announcement of their new ‘Copyright Match’ policy. Vimeo are now scanning all video uploaded to their site for copyright material, such as music, and if any uncopyrighted material is found, the video-sharing site will instantly remove the video.

Why such big news? Video makers use Vimeo’s private video feature to share their work-in-progress edits with clients and colleagues. These rough edits often use music that isn’t owned by the client to give a sense of mood and style, but now, the videos will be taken down and the client won’t see a thing.

The good news for film makers is that Wipster doesn’t do this – it provides a secure, purpose-built platform to share videos with clients.

Wipster CEO Rollo Wenlock says film makers need to choose the best software to work with clients professionally.

“There’s no reason not to use good, efficient and professional software when sharing work with clients. The feedback process is complex and film makers need to be able to communicate and understand their client’s feedback seamlessly. Wipster is designed for just this – you won’t find any video material mysteriously deleted when you’re working with Wipster.”


Wipster is a New Zealand-based platform that streamlines the video review-and-approval process. Its thousands of clients from around the world include Xero, Evernote and Vice. Join the revolution at
