How to Download Vimeo Videos [+Tools]

How to Download Vimeo Videos [+Tools]

Vimeo is a video sharing platform. It was launched in 2004, and it is perhaps the most famous rival to YouTube. Vimeo is known for its rather artistic content. Unlike YouTube, there is not much content, such as make-up videos or life coaching. That is why some of the Vimeo users wonder how to download Vimeo videos. The content in Vimeo can be very interesting if you love to see artistic images and music. 

Vimeo does not only differ from YouTube with its content. Its interface is quite different than YouTube. If you are not a Vimeo member, you cannot see popular videos on the first page, like YouTube. You need to search for a video from the search bar.

Luckily, there is a ‘Download’ option on some of the videos. This is up to the video uploader. It is very easy to use the Download option of Vimeo. If the uploader has given users the right to download their video, there must be a ‘Download’ option under the video. When you click on it, a pop-up appears. You can choose the quality of your download. 

You can download videos in 240p, 360p, 540p, 720p and 1080p qualities. The size and dimensions of these qualities are also stated in the pop-up, and there is a download button next to each one. Choose video quality and click on ‘Download,’ then the video will be downloaded to your computer.

However, it is not possible to download Vimeo videos from the mobile website or the application. You can only use Vimeo’s Download option on a desktop.

It is great that Vimeo lets its users download videos, but uploaders let it. What if you want to download a video, but it cannot download because the uploader does not let you? This is where third-party apps come in.

The Third-Party Apps

Third-Party Apps

There are many video converter websites. Let’s take a look at some of the video downloading websites that support Vimeo to download your favorite videos.


GetVideo is a video downloading website. It is possible to download videos from various platforms such as Vimeo. They support platforms including YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vevo, Vimeo, IMDB, Myspace, VK, OK, Rutube, and many others. You can also download Dailymotion videos with this site.

It is very easy to use. Copy the link of the Vimeo video you want to download and paste it on the search bar. Click on the ‘Search’ button just like in a web browser, and GetVideo will provide you a download link for converting the video file to mp4 format. You can use GetVideo on mobile devices too.

KeepDownloading is another video converting website. Just like GetVideo, the steps are similar. Copy the video URL and paste it into the search bar. Once you click on ‘Download,’ it directs you to another page. Like Vimeo, you can choose the quality of the video on this page.
