How To Download Vimeo Videos:

by andrew n. Manager

Vimeo is an online video sharing platform which permits the user to watch, share, discover, create and sell videos. It comprises different kinds of video formats such as AVI, HD and SD, MP4, MPEG 1 and 2, MP4, FLV, and MOV. The users who fall under Plus, PRO, Business, and Premium memberships are entitled to download Vimeo videos.  There are many extensions and online applications such as EaseUS MobiMover, available for downloading videos from Vimeo. When the basic membership user upgrades their account, the option for enabling downloads will be automatically turned on. A download can be done by clicking the "Download" button that appears below the video player for most of the videos. A small pop menu will be displayed depending on what the video's creator has designated. Users can see links for several different versions of the video, including a mobile, SD, and/or HD file, from which they can select their desired and suitable version. Some videos are protected by the creator through subscription tier where Plus, Pro, or Business member will have a possibility to toggle on the download option. However, if a member has disabled downloading, the user will not able to view the "Download" button on the video page.

Storage And Download Of Source Files:

The Original, untranscoded source files can be stored on Vimeo by Plus, PRO, and Business members as long as they maintain the paid subscription. They can also make the original file downloadable to other members. Basic plan members can also download the source files prepared available by Plus, PRO, and Business members, but they do not have the ability to share or store their own source files on Vimeo. If the source file is permanently deleted, then it is not possible to recover the deleted source files by changing the account settings or upgrading the account. Same is applicable for Videos uploaded via basic membership, Videos uploaded via API pull applications like Dropbox, Google Drive, One Drive, custom apps, etc prior to September 2016 and Plus, PRO, and Business members who haven’t enabled source file storage in their account settings. Users can download Vimeo videos in Windows by right-clicking on the link and need to select “Save as” or “Save target as” option. Mac users need to press the Control key on the keyboard and then click on the link to choose “Save link as” or “Download linked file" option.

Setting Permissions For Download Vimeo:

Now the option of download vimeo videos can be done only if the user permits. If the user wants to set privacy for the videos to avoid others downloading it, they can visit Video Settings page, then by clicking the Privacy tab and need to uncheck the box present next to “Download the video” and save. This will help in preventing other members from downloading the respective video. But the video owner will have access to the download button on the video page. Privacy access can be changed at any time to protect the video uploaded and also download can be enabled anytime.
