  1. hi , i very like your vimeo downloader , your apps can download Allowed to download video , it`s very cool , could you write API to the Apps , please .

    1. The extension extract the video resource, the mp4 video, and opens it up in the browser tab. You can then then save that video with Ctrl + S (Cmd + S) to get the mp4 video.

      1. Hi. When I try to save the video, it merely saves an .html file, which doesn’t play a video locally, when opened.

        Please advise what format the video is supposed to save in, and where one would find it after the saving process is finished.

        PS: I am using Google Chrome on a MacBook Pro.

        Thanks, Sean

      1. Yes. Not working for that video. I will check later if anything can be done and let you know. Thanks for pointing that out.

  2. Hi, I really love your Vimeo downloader plug-in for Chrome, however it doesn’t seem to work now with Vimeo’s new look. Do you have plans of updating your plug-in too? It says it can’t fetch the XML anymore from the HTML5 video players.

    1. Thanks for you good words.
      I am already working on making the extension compatible for new Vimeo interface. The new version will be available soon.
      For now, first you should logout from Vimeo and then try downloading the video.

  3. Hi there,

    I still get that

    “Couldn’t fetch XML. Error !”

    message when trying to save this video:

    Other videos seem to be work fine. Any ideas or hints that I could try in order to overcome this issue?!

    Thanks for this great extension, though – it worked fine for several other videos & keep the good work up! :-)

    Cheers, R.B.

    1. Sorry Frank. I am not being able to keep up with the changes Vimeo made to their system. I am busy with other stuffs.

  4. can not download: Codehunters….

    I am not logged into vimeo as suggested above. I get this error:
    Couldn’t Fetch XML error
    If you fix this, could you send me a note.
    Thank you

    1. Sorry Paul.

      Vimeo made some changes to their system and I have not been able to keep up with it. I do not have enough time to work on that. Sorry.

  5. Hi, the plugin is awesome and has helped me a lot! But now it’s not working for HD downloads :( (I’m trying to download this video https://vimeo.com/43385747). I suppose it’s because the HD download has not been updated for the “new” vimeo yet. Have you got plans of doing so? Thank you very much! Regards

    1. I have fixed the issue. Please update the plugin to get version 2.2. HD video download should be working fine now.

      1. Great – works for me now, too!!!

        Many thanks for the quick fix (though I know from your last post you’re very busy with other stuff)…

        Thanks again & Cheers, Frank

  6. I’m missing something. I open the page with the video on it on the Vimeo site, whereabouts should i be looking for the download links? Can’t see them anywhere… <:/

    1. The extension runs a background script to know if the active tab is vimeo tab or not. So the extension needs to monitor all tabs.

    1. Google took down the extension without mentioning any reason. I am trying to resolve this issue.

      I have updated the post and included instruction on how to install it manually. You can please refer to that. If you need any help, write me back.

    1. Thank you :)

      If HD is available, ‘Get HD’ button will appear and it will fetch the highest quality video available to the public.
