In this part, I will introduce a Chrome extension to download Vimeo video. It means you don't need to download a program. This extension can help you download Vimeo videos in different video quality for free.
But you need to notice that this free Vimeo downloader doesn't support high video quality like 4K and high audio quality like 320kbps. It means you cannot enjoy the original quality of the Vimeo video. But if you don't have high requirement on video/audio quality, this extension is one of your choice. This program doesn't support to choose video/audio format.
Here is the tutorial of using Video Downloader for Vimeo:
a. Add this Chrome extension to your browser.
b. Go to Vimeo and open the video you want to download.
c. Click the downloader icon on the top right and you can see a list that contains the videos on the page.
d. Scroll down the list and find the video you want to download. Tap on the blue download button to download Vimeo video.
Sometimes, the downloaded Vimeo video needs a special decoder to play back.
These two Vimeo video downloaders help a lot in downloading Vimeo video. They have their own advantages in performance. You can choose one according to your need. But if you have higher video/audio video quality, VideoSolo Inovideo performs better than the Chrome extension. It's also easier to use. What's more, Inovideo can download video from over 1000+ video websites. It's worth trying.
