YouTube Leanback isn’t the only interface that’s suitable for coach potatoes as Vimeo has also released what it calls “couch mode“. The interface allows users to get a full-screen video player, complete with large buttons and straightforward navigation to various video playlists, making it suitable for your Google TV or HTPC. Couch mode includes features such as Vimeo’s HD playlist, staff picks, various videos from subscribed channels and more. A “watch later” feature is also available, allowing users to bookmark videos without adding them to their favorites list. If you plan on giving it a test drive, Vimeo mentions that you’ll need to be running Chrome or Safari.
