Company planning on creating dedicated iPhone app

Vimeo on Wednesday announced plans to extend its movie service onto the iPhone and Android platforms, according to CNET News. All of the site's content from the staff picks and HD video showcase have already been converted to formats optimized for mobile handsets.

"We've been working on it for the last few weeks. This is sort of the prelude of offering Plus members iPhone support; and in the future, an app," said Vimeo director Blake Whitman.

The initial conversions will be limited to videos picked by the company. In the coming weeks, however, Plus members will have the option to transcode their videos into smartphone resolutions.

The iPhone and Android content is now available through a mobile section of the site, however Whitman warns some of the videos may be problematic on Android at first.
