Frequently asked questions.

How can I create my own meme video?

Forget using a meme generator online and use Vimeo Create instead. Vimeo helps you design your next viral meme in minutes with multiple tools, premade templates, and a full stock library of images and video clips to engage your audience with.

What is a meme video?

A meme video uses a quick video clip rather than an image as the meme’s visual. Video memes typically have a small amount of text that goes along with the video to create something funny, heartwarming, or witty. Video memes have the power to capture attention even quicker than image-based memes.

How do you make a meme go viral?

Crafting a meme that resonates with your audience is the most important factor in whether it goes viral. Tailor your meme to your ideal audience by using emotion, humor, or whatever it is that draws them in. Keep your text short and clear to get the best response.
