How to download videos from Vimeo

Vimeo has a huge archive of some great videos and the good thing is that you can download these videos to your devices for offline use.

We will show you exactly how to save Vimeo videos on desktop and mobile devices.

What to know before downloading videos from Vimeo

Keep in mind that, at least on desktop (Windows, Mac, Linux, or Chromebook), you can’t download all the videos available on Vimeo. You can only download videos uploaded by paid Vimeo users. This means that if someone uploaded a video from their free Vimeo account, you can’t download it. Vimeo’s mobile app (iPhone, iPad or Android), however, will download any video from the site; it must not come from a paid Vimeo user.

Another difference is that if you download a video to a desktop, you get a video file. On the other hand, if you download a video to mobile, you don’t get a video file. Instead, your video is saved in the Vimeo app and you have to use the app to access the saved videos, similar to downloading music on Spotify.
