Vimeo is a platform for sharing videos in the same way as YouTube and other video-sharing sites, in the form of individuals uploading videos, and is a video-sharing site for so-called creators. Therefore, every video uploaded here is an original video.
Unlike other video-sharing sites, you can upload 1280x700 HD videos, which is the biggest feature of Vimeo. Also, after uploading, Vimeo will automatically transcode the uploaded video to HD. Generally speaking, the uploaded video is divided into two files, one is 1280×720 (pixels) HD quality and the other is normal quality, and when users switch to the HD version, they can see the more detailed video, which is incomparable to normal video sites.
In addition, Vimeo has the following advantages:
and other advantages. That's also a big reason why Vimeo is so popular with many users as well as creators all over the world.
While users can upload their creative videos to Vimeo, they can also freely download the source videos. However, there are often cases when downloading is not possible, especially if you want to download and save a video that can only be viewed on Vimeo, or if you add the video to "watch later" and then the contributor deletes the video and you can no longer play it. Is there really no way to download a video from Vimeo?
Now, this article will introduce you to four ways to download Vimeo videos. I hope you will find them helpful.
Step 01. Go to the Vimeo website and log in.
Step 02. Search for the video you want to download.
Step03. Click the [Download] button, and then choose the quality you want to download.
If you are using Chrome, you can use the chrome extension called "Vimeo video downloader" to easily download embedded videos with just one click.
Step 01. Install the "Vimeo video downloader" from the chrome web store.
Step 02. Search for the video you want to download.
Step 03. Click the "Download" button at the bottom of the screen to download the video.
(1) You will see a "Download" button on the Vimeo video itself. Select the desired resolution to download.
If you don't see the down arrow, play the video and you will see the "Download" button.
(2) Click the pop-up of the extension and download the video you want to download from the called list.
It is the most convenient way to download videos directly from Vimeo, but if the videos are not allowed to be downloaded due to privacy settings or other reasons, you can use a professional video downloader to download the videos. The one I would like to recommend here is StreamFab YouTube Downloader. The reason for the recommendation is that it not only supports Vimeo, but also supports more than 1000 sites like YouTube, Facebook, etc.
First, download StreamFab YouTube Downloader from the website.
Here is the official website:https://streamfab.com/youtube-video-downloader.htm
It can support Windows version and MAC version, but here I will introduce the MAC version as an example.
StreamFab YouTube Downloader is divided into three versions: Free Version, Standard Version and Pro Version.
For those who usually use YouTube, the free version is already enough, but if you also use Facebook and Vimeo at the same time, if you buy the standard and pro versions, you will not only get the "download" function but also other and a few other benefits.
The first is that it can support over 1000 popular video sites. You only need to buy one site, and you can download videos from over 1000 sites, that's a great deal!
Secondly, the videos downloaded from StreamFab YouTube Downloader will be downloaded in the form of mp4/mp3. Secondly, the videos you download from StreamFab YouTube Downloader will be downloaded in mp4/mp3 format, so you can transfer them to your friends with lighter file sizes, or carry the mp4/mp3 files around with you while enjoying them.
Thirdly, as I mentioned earlier, the best feature of Vimeo is its high quality, and if the downloaded video quality is poor, then it's not a win-win situation. The StreamFab YouTube Downloader can deliver up to 8k quality and 320kbps sound quality, so you can get a more detailed picture and sound quality close to the original.
Fourth, you can download at super high speed, so you don't have to wait for a long time to enjoy your music and videos.
Here's how to use StreamFab YouTube Downloader.
Download the downloader from the website and launch the software. Select "Vimeo" from the popular sites.
Find the video you want to download and play it.
Copy the URL of the video you want to download and paste the URL by clicking "+Paste URL" in the upper left corner of the downloader.
Click the "Download" button to check the progress of the downloaded video. The downloaded video will be saved in "Local Files".
If you can't download due to chrome limitations or other reasons, one way to save the video is to record it. There is a lot of recording software on the market, but I'll use "videosolo screen recording" as an example here.
First, open the playback screen of the video you want to download. Then, launch the "videosolo screen recording" software you have installed.
Select "Video Recorder" from the interface.
After setting the recording range, system sound, and microphone sound, click the red button "rec" on the right side.
When you see a screen like this, it means the recording has started. If you want to stop recording, just press the stop button and click "Save Recording".
That's all, we have introduced four ways to download videos from Vimeo. You can choose the most suitable method according to your own taste and needs and try it.
