Besides, the video download feature also works to download online audio files to your computer or mobile device. For example, you can download music from SoundCloud to your device for offline listening.

Method 2. How to Save Vimeo Videos to iPhone with Online Video Downloader

Apart from desktop programs, online video downloaders enable you to download videos from Vimeo. However, such tools are generally compatible with desktop browsers. Thus, you need to download Vimeo videos to your computer first and then transfer videos from your computer to your iPhone.

Online video downloaders are pretty easy and convenient to use. But some potential issues may occur. For example, you may be interrupted by unexpected ads or redirections. Given that, you should be careful while choosing such a tool to apply.

Here I'd like to take one of them as an example.

To download videos from Vimeo to iPhone:

Step 1. Go to and play the video you want to download.

Step 2. Copy the video address from the address bar and visit the online video downloader.

Step 3. Paste the video address in the address box and tap "Download".

Step 4. Then you will see different download options that show different video quality.

Step 5. Choose one of the options and you will go to a video playing page. Click "More" > "Download" to save the Vimeo video to your computer. 

Step 6. When it has done, go to the "Downloads" folder to check the item and then transfer the video from computer to iPhone.

Method 3. How to Download Videos from Vimeo to iPhone with Browser Extension

Another equally easy way to get videos from Vimeo onto your iPhone is to use a video downloader extension. Unlike using a desktop or online video downloader, using a browser extension frees you from copying the video URL and enables you to download the video directly by clicking the "Download" button shown over or near the video.

To download a Vimeo video to iPhone via Chrome:

Step 1. Go to the Chrome web store and search for Vimeo video downloader.

Step 2. Add the one you like best to your browser and restart your browser if required.

Step 3. Go to Vimeo and play the video you want to downloader to your iPhone.

Step 4. Click the "Download" button over/near the video to save it to your computer. If you don't see the download button, you can click the video downloader icon shown on the browser to check for download options.

Step 5. Go to the "Downloads" folder on your computer to check the video and then transfer the video to your iPhone following the guide given in Method 2.

Method 4. How to Save a Vimeo Video on iPhone via Mobile App

If you prefer to download a video from Vimeo to your iPhone directly, you need the help of mobile apps. According to Vimeo, using the seller's app, you can download videos to your iPhone or iPad.

However, unlike using the methods above that help to download Vimeo videos to your iPhone permanently, if you use the mobile app to save Vimeo videos to your iPhone, the time the video remains available for offline watching on your iPhone is limited for some videos, and you can only watch the video within the app. Thus, if you want to save video files to your iPhone or iPad permanently, use one of the three methods above instead.

The Bottom Line

Whether you want to download Vimeo videos to your iPhone or your computer, you can find the solution from the methods above. For you to make a better choice:

  • EaseUS MobiMover allows you to save a Vimeo video to your iPhone or computer and also supports man other sites.
  • An online video downloader helps to download a video from Vimeo without installing a program or extension.
  • A browser extension enables you to download videos from Vimeo to your iPhone without copying the URL but only works with Vimeo.
  • A mobile app works well without a computer but it can't keep some videos permanently.

Carry out the way best suited to your needs to download Vimeo videos to your iPhone with ease.
