Vimeo remote: control the cool kids’ cool vids

Vimeo remote

Let’s just get it out in the open: Vimeo is pretty cool. Our Vimeo remote might not be quite as cool, but we love it anyways. It lets us show off the cool videos we found and control Vimeo without having to crowd around a laptop.

To get this remote for yourself, just install the Apptui desktop application and grab the mobile app from the App Store or Google Play. It’s free, but there’s more: not only are you able to control Vimeo, you get remotes for over 40 other sites and apps. But there’s even more: Apptui is the only remote out there that switches controls on the fly.  So after you’re done watching something on Vimeo, you can jump over to YouTube to watch something a little less sophisticated perhaps, or even visit 8tracks and put on a playlist.

Switching remotes

See, it switches automatically!

Now if you have the remote but need something to watch, here are some quick recommendations:

  1. Chris Bryan Films Phantom Reel – super slowmo wave clips… and some crazy people riding them on pieces of wood.
  2. Bokehxplosions – beautiful fireworks through a different lens.
  3. EMERGENCE – I Can’t Believe It’s Not CG!

We hope you like the remote. If you have any comments/questions, or if you have other sites that you’d like a remote for, drop us a line at or message us on Twitter.
