When an organization decides to switch its video hosting from Vimeo to Gumlet, a key consideration for us is ensuring that the transition is seamless and does not disrupt the existing structure and accessibility of the videos. The underlying concern here is to maintain a consistent and reliable reference system that links the old and new video hosting services.
To achieve this, during the migration process, Gumlet records and stores the Vimeo video IDs. These IDs are unique identifiers assigned to each video on Vimeo and serve as a critical reference point. The mapping process involves correlating each Vimeo video ID with its corresponding Gumlet video ID, which is the new unique identifier assigned to the video once it’s uploaded to Gumlet.
