A fantastic alternative to YouTube is Vimeo. Unlike YouTube, Vimeo’s website isn’t block by Websense on most networks and its HD quality videos look beautiful on all screens, including the iPad. In addition to its search function, the Vimeo iPad app allows users to shoot, edit and upload their own videos.
I’ve used HD videos from Vimeo when creating interactive textbooks for the iPad. This time lapse video of the Canadian Rockies is a great example of the quality of clips available on the site.
