A while ago I tested how much data Youtube use.  I also tested how much data Vimeo videos use as well.

Once again, I use NetLimiter to measure my test.  Again I use a one minute video to test. The Vimeo video I used is One Minute Wonder – Kiah Victoria Wonders on Vimeo. Unlike Youtube, which has various quality settings, Vimeo only has two: Normal and HQ. Here are the results:

Vimeo Video Quality
Data used per minute
Normal
5.89 MB
HQ
45.76 MB

Noticed that HQ quality is about 9 times more than Normal.
