Given compatibility, there are more tools available for Windows than for Mac that allow you to download videos from Vimeo. Luckily, that doesn't mean you can't download videos from Vimeo on Mac. For you to save Vimeo videos on Mac successfully, there is a collection of proven ways that will help you get videos you like.

How to Download Vimeo Videos on Mac Quickly

No matter which operating system your computer carries, either Windows or macOS, you can apply the video downloader for PC and Mac - EaseUS Video Downloader to download videos from Vimeo. It works to download a specific video or download Vimeo videos in bulk. Even if you want to extract audio from Vimeo videos, you can download these videos to your computer first and then use the video to MP3 feature to get the audio files you need.

Other than Vimeo, EaseUS Video Downloader supports many other video/audio sites and social networking sites, including YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, SoundCloud, Instagram, and more. If you also need to download videos from YouTube, there are more advanced features for you. For example, you can choose the video/audio format and quality, and convert YouTube videos to MP3 directly.

To download Vimeo videos on Mac:

Step 1. Copy the URL of the video you want to convert in the address box and click "Search."

Download YouTube video - 1

Step 2. Check the video and click "Download."

Step 3. Choose MP4 as the target format, select a quality you prefer to download, and then click "Download."

How to Download Vimeo Videos on Mac Online

Using a desktop-based Vimeo video downloader is the best choice in general but not the only choice. Online video downloaders have growing popularity due to their convenience. There is no exception when it comes to Vimeo video download. With an online downloader, you can free yourself from downloading and installing a program on your computer. However, you should know that you are highly likely to encounter ads and redirections while using such a website. If you don't mind, follow the steps below to have a try.

Step 1. Copy the URL of the Vimeo video you want to download.

Step 2. Go to the online Vimeo video downloader using a browser on your Mac.

Step 3. Paste the video address into the box and click "Submit."

Step 4. Now you can see various download options.

Step 5. To download the Vimeo video, you can either right-click the "DOWNLOAD VIDEO" button and choose "SAVE LINK AS" or click an option you like below and then click "More" > "Download" to save the video to your Mac.

How to Download Vimeo Videos on Mac via Vimeo Plus or Higher

Just like YouTube provides YouTube Premium for its users, Vimeo also offers different subscription plans for you to enjoy advanced features. For you who have subscribed to Vimeo Plus or higher, you will be able to download videos from Vimeo to your Mac on the site directly. If you are a member of Vimeo Plus or higher, you will see a "Download" button available under the video you play with which you can save the video for offline viewing. 

For detailed steps, you can go to the official guide from Vimeo for reference.

The Bottom Line

All of the ways above are also applicable to downloading Vimeo videos on Windows. While if you want to download Vimeo videos to your mobile device, you can use a desktop app like EaseUS Video Downloader to download Vimeo videos to your computer first and then transfer videos to the computer to your mobile device. Or you can use the advanced features in the membership to save Vimeo videos to your phone or tablet.
