    I was googling on how to download videos from wayback machine with a similar question to OP in this thread.

    I found the following quote and this post in particular.
    Originally Posted by jagabo View Post

    With thanks to Jagabo, using his method I was able to download several videos where usual youtube-type download websites/services don't work. For example, I can now download videos here by finding the appropriate links using developer tools: http://abc.net.au/news/programs/the-business/. I had tried many ways to do that previously but did not find anything that worked other than screen-recording.

    With this new way of downloading videos, I have one more question if anyone can assist:

    Is there any way to download videos at lower quality?

    For example I'm currently downloading this: https://player.vimeo.com/video/512763473

    But it's 8gb (I presume I'm downloading the 1080p version). The original website and embedded player here (might update within 24 hours) has options to change quality between 240p-1080p.

    For example, when selecting 720p I can see this reflected in developer tools here:

    I'm wondering if there is a way I can download that particular lower-quality stream (to save bandwidth, download time and post-processing time)?

    try youtube-dl -F https://player.vimeo.com/video/512763473
    to list the available formats

  3. Yes, the -F switch will get you a list of available streams like this:

    Then you pick the streams you want and specify them by name (the string at the left) with the -f switch. So to get the hls-akfire_interconnect_quic_sep-276 video and hls-fastly_skyfire_sep-audio-high-audio audio:

    Code:
    youtube-dl -f hls-akfire_interconnect_quic_sep-276+hls-fastly_skyfire_sep-audio-high-audio "https://player.vimeo.com/video/512763473"
