TV apps make it easy to watch, share, and participate in Vimeo from the comfort of your couch. (Plus, the apps listed on this page are in special partnership with Vimeo, so you know they’re good!) On the off chance you find a bug in one of our apps or you're having trouble using Vimeo on your Apple TV, send us a note with a detailed summary of the issue. We'll get back to you ASAP.
FYI, on all of Vimeo's connected device apps, you can view your own private videos under My Videos after you log in to your account.
To access Vimeo through Apple TV, go to the App Store and search for "Vimeo" to download the app onto your Apple TV 4th/5th generation device or newer. Please note: we no longer support Apple TV 2nd/3rd generation devices.
On Apple TV, you can also watch other private videos that you have access to. Simply add them to your Watch Later queue on your computer, then access Watch Later from the Vimeo app on your Apple TV.
If you’re having trouble finding the video you want to watch, it may be because you’re not logged in. When logged out of your Vimeo account on Apple TV, search results will display only videos that have been rated All Audiences. The search results will hide videos rated Mature or Not Yet Rated.
When logged in to your Vimeo account, you will be able to search for and find all content that you normally would on vimeo.com, in accordance with your Content Filter preferences. Go to vimeo.com/settings to edit your Content Filter preferences.
While viewing a collection (My Videos, Watch Later, a Channel), press the Play button on your remote to enable continuous play. When the selected video finishes, the next video in that feed will begin playing! After the last video in the feed finishes, you’ll return to the feed where you started.
Captions and subtitles
Videos with captions or subtitles will have a (CC) badge on the detailed video view. To turn on captions or subtitles, press-and-hold the center select button on your remote. Then, simply pick the language you want and hit the select button again.
Note: This will only display captions or subtitles for the current video. If you want to view captions whenever they're available, you'll need to turn them on globally for all apps on Apple TV: http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202772
At the moment, VOD purchases cannot be made within the Vimeo app for Apple TV. However, you can navigate to the "Library" section (found at the top of the screen) and then scroll down to "Purchases" to view any repurchased content.
To download and use the Vimeo app on your Roku, go to the Channel store from your Roku home screen. Vimeo will appear in multiple lists, but navigate to the Photos & Video row to find us for sure. Then, click the Vimeo icon to start downloading our app and follow the instructions on the screen.
If you haven’t connected your Roku device to your Vimeo account before, then you’ll receive an activation code made up of letters and numbers that you can use to connect your Roku to your Vimeo account. You can use the code by visiting vimeo.com/activate on your mobile device or computer. (You only have to do this once!)
Captions and subtitles
Unfortunately, it is not currently possible to view/enable subtitles or captions in the Vimeo app for Roku.
The newest version of Vimeo’s native apps are available on the devices listed here.
