    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is asking about the underlying technology of a web application. – ale Apr 28 '17 at 15:07

It looks like it is built in house by Vimeo but the only way top be certain would be to contact them directly.

    Totally agree.. even if they started with something else.. I think now it's completely custom made..! – Lipis Feb 25 '11 at 12:58
  • @Lipis - Yep, my thoughts exactly. There is a bit of MooTools in there but it could literally be any sort of hybrid concoction – codingbadger Feb 25 '11 at 13:38
  • If they can serve millions of videos to millions of people without any issues... I'm pretty sure they can build their own forum with their very specific needs..! :) – Lipis Feb 25 '11 at 13:53

According to Daniel Hayek of Vimeo, they wrote it from scratch. So yeah, it's custom built, and not based any of the (then/now) existing forum applications.
