- developer_message: “You have been banned. Contact vimeo support for more information.”
- An x-banned-ip header with the exact IP address banned in our system
- A W4A0F6 error for users whose IP addresses are temporarily blocked.
If this happens to you, please contact us, let us know the exact request you’re making to the API, and provide the exact IP address returned in the response’s x-banned-ip header.
