  2. Find a ‘Download’ button under the video.
  3. Choose the resolution/file size you need for your video.
  4. Open the downloaded file to check and use it.

We believe that video can explain this better than text so we made a video tutorial for you.

You can do all these steps in just 15 seconds. That’s it!

You may now enjoy your video and use it wherever you want.

You can download videos from Vimeo with an unlimited number of times and with any resolution/file size you need.


If you struggle to find the Download button, it means the owner of the video doesn’t allow video downloads or simply can’t enable this function because of the type of their account on Vimeo.

If you don’t find the Download button with the link we provided just let us know. We enable downloadable videos in just seconds.

Unfortunately, it’s not possible to download a video from Vimeo on mobile. You have to use a desktop to download video files.
