Most people might think that Vimeo is just a common video-centric social networking site like YouTube or Dailymotion, but do you know why artist like Kenya West or government like White House would like to use Vimeo service to post its video content on the internet? Generally, it is because this streaming video site has gained a reputation for its high quality and high definition videos. Is the website vimeo good enough as I describe, just see and prove it for yourself.
Vimeo is a respectful community of creative people who are passionate about sharing the videos they make. We provide the best tools and highest quality video in the universe.
If you finally find how good Vimeo is, you probably like to download videos from Vimeo as your personal high quality video collection. Because I usually do so. And my choice is the most easy-to-try way, which I’d like to introduce it to you below.
Step 1: Install and launch the handy tool Vimeo Video Downloader.
Step 2: Copy Vimeo video page address and paste, then click “Add to Download” to start downloading.
Tips: You can convert vimeo video you download to any format with this program, and transfer to iTunes directly.
Providing that you want to save video in 1:1 quality, another suggested and notable way is to utilize the Video Recorder function, you just have three steps to go:
1. Simply click “Record” icon and enable the Video Recorder
2. Customize the destination folder and make some necessary settings
3. Watch the vimeo video with IE browser and then switch to HD Mode
The vimeo video will be auto detected and downloaded as the “Record” tab displays “On”. You will record HD Vimeo video and send them to your digital players like iPhone 4s, iPad2 or android devices. That’s done, it’s as easy as pie.
If you want to have more intuitive understanding about how to save HD vimeo videos, it’s a good idea to see some demonstration videos from YouTube, you will be told what and how to do it easily and efficiently. Get started now.
The above two modes could nearly achieve capturing any vimeo videos, but quite a few original users or uploaders on vimeo.com encrypted the videos and do not allow downloading for personal use or random distribution. So you will find a part of vimeo videos could not be downloaded.
Based on these situations, another suggestion is to use “Record Screen” feature of Video Download Capture. Tap the button, set output directory and enable your desired hotkeys on the keyboard. Please remember that you should not leave your web page until the recording is finished. Furthermore, screen capture software applies to live video stream as well.
Surely Vimeo is much better than other video sharing sites, with its high quality content and high resolution pictures. Since you’ve got Vimeo downloaded in your computer, it’s just one step away from Vimeo video playback on your iPod, iPhone, PSP or any digital devices.
With the built-in “video converter” from Video Download Capture, it’s easy to convert Vimeo videos to any common video formats such as MP4, 3GP, AVI to proper playback on different players.
Alternatively, such free online file conversion service like Zamzar helps a lot but in low quality.
Like most other video sharing sites, Vimeo supports embedding, sharing, video storage, and allows user-commenting on each video page. But it does not allow commercial videos, gaming videos, pornography, or anything not created by the user to be hosted on the site. And Vimeo supports for High Definition playback in 1280×720 (720p) since 2007, as the first video sharing site to support consumer HD.
