It’s that simple. The download feature is built directly into Vimeo, no paid subscriptions required.
There is one problem that might arise though. Vimeo does offer paid subscriptions for content creators, which provide them more control over their video content on the platform. A video creator with a paid Vimeo subscription can choose to turn the downloading options off on their video content.
That’s where the third-party downloader websites come in.
Unofficial Vimeo downloader websites
Sometimes you’ll need to go the “unauthorized” route to save your favorite Vimeo videos on your computer for offline viewing.
Just search “download Vimeo” on Google and you’ll be presented with a few options. The most popular are SaveTheVideo and Vimeo Downloader.

All of these websites work pretty much the same way: Copy the link to the Vimeo video you’d like to download. Paste that link into the input field on the downloader’s website and click Submit. The user will be presented with different video quality and resolution options. Hover over the version you want to download, right click and hit “Save link as.”
Please note that because these types of video downloader websites are free-to-use, they can often be riddled with advertisements, adware, or other nefarious downloads.

Also, be a good person on the internet and don’t rehost a video you downloaded to watch offline.
