Features on the Android app
You can view your feed, like videos, comment on videos, and find and follow other members, just like on the desktop site. You can also play from your Watch Later list, Showcases, or Channels. In addition, you can edit video Settings, download a video for offline playback, and share videos via email and social networks.
For anything else (Groups, Portfolios, Team member access, etc.), you'll need to visit the desktop version of Vimeo.
Watching videos on the app
To watch videos you've saved to your Watch Later queue or purchased via On Demand, tap the bookmark-shaped icon at the top of the screen. There, you'll be able to select "Watch Later" or "Purchases."
Downloading videos for offline playback
When viewing videos, tap the ellipsis next to the video you want to download and tap “Make Available Offline.” Your video will begin downloading to your device, and you’ll see a progress bar appear. Once the download has completed, you can find it under the Offline section of your Library.
You can also download a video while in the player view by tapping the Download icon (ꜜ). Downloaded videos are only available for playback within the Vimeo app, and cannot be accessed by other apps.
To remove a downloaded video, go to the Offline section of your Library, tap the ellipsis, and then tap “Remove from Offline Playlist.” Videos can also be removed while in the Player view by tapping the Download icon.
💡 Tip: By default, a lower quality playback version will be saved for offline playback in the app. If you prefer to save a higher quality version of your video, go to your Profile in the app, tap on the Settings gear, and enable “Allow HD downloads.” We also recommend enabling the “Download only via WiFi” setting as HD files tend to be quite large.
Tap "Me" in the navigation bar, tap "Upload" in the lower right-hand corner, select a video from your device’s Camera Roll, and tap "Upload." That’s it! You can then add a title and a description and tweak your privacy settings, or you can chill and edit those settings later.
There are many variables that can affect the amount of time it takes to upload a video, including the duration of the video, the visual complexity of the video, and planetary alignment. But as long as you connect your device to Wi-Fi to get your video online as soon as possible, our mobile app will take care of the rest. Once your video is uploaded, it’ll take a few moments for us to finish up and make your video look its best.
When viewing a feed of videos, tap the ellipsis and then tap "Share." You can share a link to the video via Facebook, Twitter, Email, SMS/messaging, and any other platform you have set up to share on your device. If you’re watching a video and want to share it, tap the "Share" icon to bring up that same menu.
View video analytics
While playing your own videos, you can look at its analytics over the past 30 days. To do so, start playing any video of yours, and tap the Analytics tab below the player. In this view, you can see your video’s plays, likes, impressions, play rate, and plays by URL. Archived videos that were streamed live will also return analytics specific to the live event.
Each analytics panel will also report the percent change in analytics compared to the previous 30 days. For your full analytics report, visit vimeo.com/analytics in a web browser.
Cast a video to Chromecast
With your device connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your Chromecast, start playing a video and tap the Chromecast icon in the lower right-hand corner of the player. In mere moments, your selected video will begin playing on your TV. You can continue browsing Vimeo on your device while your video plays, and control playback on your TV using the Chromecast controls at the bottom of the app.
