What experiences have you had using Vimeo as an integrated Canvas tool?

We are considering purchasing Vimeo Pro to provide streaming video options.  Vimeo did not have information about how it functions within Canvas. So I'm asking all my awesome peers here if they have experiences to share!  Here are some of my questions:

1. Can faculty upload videos to Vimeo directly from inside Canvas?

2. Can students upload videos to Vimeo inside assignments or Canvas in some other manner?


The whole point of the purchase is to allow students access to videos that take to long to download.  With many students in rural settings and limited internet speed, downloading even short videos can time out for the student.  They may get lags while things load in streamed video but hopefully they will eventually see the content.  Does that sound like a reasonable expectation?
