Download Vimeo Videos, Save HD video from Vimeo

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.

How to Download Vimeo Videos

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.

How to download HD video from Vimeo

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.

Video Tutorial for downloading Vimeo free

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.

Record Vimeo videos with Screen Recorder

The above two modes could nearly achieve capturing any vimeo videos, but quite a few original users  or uploaders on 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.

How to Convert Vimeo Videos

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.

More about Vimeo

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.

    What should I do when the screen says “Sorry, this video site is currently not supported by URL Download”?

    John January 13th, 2012

    Just Open Video Recorder in the program, it will detect the video files you are playing and start to download.

    I have a page with 30 embedded Vimeo videos I want to download.
    I don’t want to click thru each one, or copy its address.
    DownThemAll won’t download Vimeo videos.
    Will this tool let me download all Vimeo videos in a page with a few clicks?

    John January 13th, 2012

    I am sorry but currently We don’t support download all vimeo videos at a time, this will take to much CPU and cause system crash, also not good to vimeo video site.
    We have program like YouTube Downloader, can download all YouTube videos at a time by searching related YouTube videos.

    Does it work for big videos like 200 MB ? I was trying to download it via DAP but after 40% or 45% is asks for password, and nothing works after that and it fails.

    John November 25th, 2012

    Hello, VDC works with all vimeo videos, all video size can be easily downloaded.

    Will this allow me to download videos that are password protected?


    Alice November 22nd, 2013

    If the video is protected and cannot be viewed, it is impossible to download it.
    But, you can try to login the site and check the video again.
    Video Download Capture may capture videos when it starts to play.
