Long ago, when people wanted to capture the ephemeral television broadcasts of their favorite program, they had to use a blank tape and a VCR to record It. Today, the process is a little easier. If you want to download and archive a Vimeo video for personal use, you can do it with online converters or downloadable software. If you want to download YouTube videos, we have a guide to that too.
But before you continue, please. Keep in mind that laws pertaining to the copying and distribution of copyrighted material vary by location. Copyright holders may also have their own policy as to whether they are good for people making copies of their work. If you are going to make a copy of a video on Vimeo, you were aware of the creator's attitude.
Step 1: Select a download service online
The easiest way to download videos from Vimeo is to use an online converter. You need to be careful with which one you choose, as there is no guarantee of the quality of the downloads, and some types of these services may have strenuous ads. Our favorite is ClipConverter.cc because it has a straight, clean and concise interface.
Step 2: Copy and paste Vimeo video URL
To get started find the Vimeo video you want to download and copy its URL from the address bar of your browser. When you are ready in the clipboard, get ready to go back to ClipConverter.cc and paste into the black Video URL to download and then select Continue . Give the service a few seconds to check the URL and then select your desired quality under Detected Media . If desired, you can also enter a custom file name.
Step 3: Start the download for your converted video
Next, select your desired file type under Conversion Format. We recommend MP4 as it is the most common media type, but alternatives like MOV are also an option. Also, make sure to select all check boxes for Auto Mode and Convert From. When it's ready, click the black Start button to download your video. You have to wait a bit for the conversion to be completed, but your waiting times depend on how long the video is.
Even if you use an online file converter is the best method for downloading Vimeo videos, there are several options. Vimeo can have a download button above the description so you can download a copy from the site, but it is usually up to the original uploader.
If that button is not available, try using software such as 4K Video Downloader. To get started, download and install the program first to your computer or Mac. Copy the video address you want to download, open the app and click the Paste Link button in the upper left corner. Then follow the instructions on the screen. Don't be fooled by the name, you can download the video in resolutions other than 4K, even if it supports the UHD resolution as well.
