Ashtech Software is offering Vimeo Player over at the Windows Phone Marketplace. Vimeo Player, as you would expect, is a Windows Phone client for the video website Vimeo.
Vimeo Player gives you access to the entire Vimeo catalog of videos and lays everything out nicely on a multi-page hub. The app is laid out in a very simple, easy to use fashion. From the main pages you have:
Start Page: Here's where you can search videos by keyword, search the various vimeo channels and contact the developer.
Featured Page: Your featured video of the day from Vimeo.
Staff Picks Page: This page highlights Vimeo's staff video picks.
All in all, it's a very nice starting point for a Vimeo client. It is a work in progress with future updates to include MyInbox support and personalization options. Personally, I'm not a big fan of the scripted text but it represents the Vimeo site well.
Videos playback supports high definition playback and the videos loaded smoothly. You also have integration with your Zune player that adds previously viewed videos to your History Page.
There are two versions of Vimeo Player available, a free ad-supported version and a paid version that will cost you $1.99. You can find Vimeo Player free here (opens Zune) and the paid version of Vimeo Player here at the Marketplace.
Footnote: We'd like to extend a BIG thanks to Sebastiaan, one of our readers, who created the video lead that you will now see in our product videos.
