    Hi all,

    I'm new to this forum. Would like to download videos posted by my kids' school but their IT guy seems to be very good at embedding videos recently.

    I've been using the "inspect" function to find a link then download it with Videoproc AI software and it usually works except this time.

    I would be very grateful if anyone can help me out here. Below link is what I found using "inspect" function but Videoproc cannot analyze this link:

    https://player.vimeo.com/video/911759740?autoplay=1&h=77dc4a7929


    or below is what's given by school:
    link: https://vimeo.com/911759740?share=copy

    Thank you very much for your help in advance!

    I was able to extract 2 mp4 files from the developer console, one for video and one for audio. I merged them using ffmpeg

  4. With developer tools open, filter for "master.json". Copy that link and change it to "master.mpd". Now, you can use that link with basically any downloader and get up to 4k:

    Code:
    ❯ yt-dlp -F "https://92vod-adaptive.akamaized.net/exp=1707990411~acl=%2Faeebd0aa-e553-430a-8436-dde83a234e23%2F%2A~hmac=e71b3f602e3064e3ec4c4fe6eda0e49607364fea1ddfb364cb35bfd2facfcdc7/aeebd0aa-e553-430a-8436-dde83a234e23/sep/video/2c7bcfc9,30cf162b,4be09b14,8ab431fa,90ae82a1,cf200685,dd785cc2/audio/52ec0ad3,ac07bba5,c4ad1e80/master.mpd?base64_init=1&query_string_ranges=1"

    Hi all again,

    I still cannot figure out an easy way to download my kid's educational video. Would be very grateful if someone can shed some light to a mom who's not very techno savvy.

    My kid's school uploads a bunch of videos to vimeo with a link and password. I used to be able to generate another link by adding the video to "watch later" and then use that link and download the video using VideoProc or By Click Downloader.

    Few months ago, I had to right click the video then press "inspect" and look up another link by finding keyword "secure". However, none of these methods work anymore.

    Can anyone please help me out by teaching me how to do it as I need to continuously download videos on a monthly basis.

    One example of the video link I got from "water later" of Vimeo:

    https://vimeo.com/922367202/28a39ea699

    Then by using "inspect", I found another link: https://player.vimeo.com/video/922367202?autoplay=1&h=28a39ea699

    Neither of them is downloadable using Videoproc or By Click Downloader.

    Thanks a lot in advance!

  7. yt-dlp makes this very easy. In your command line just run:

    Code:
    yt-dlp https://vimeo.com/922367202/28a39ea699

    Hi, thank you for replying!

    Sorry if I'm being dumb. I tried to run yt-dlp and then a black box came up. I tried to paste the vimeo link there but the box disappeared....

    Don't double click on yt-dlp. Open your command prompt first (the black box), then drag and drop yt-dlp in it: this will generate the absolute path to yt-dlp. After the absolute path just paste your video link and hit enter.

    Hi White Snake,

    I think I found those files now but they're broken into one m4a and one mp4 file.

    Is there a way to just download one complete video with highest resolution?

    Thanks a lot!

    For me they were automatically muxed (merged) into one file. From the previous screenshot it looks like you have some problems with ffmpeg (you likely have an old version), which is what handles the muxing. Replace it with one from here: https://github.com/yt-dlp/FFmpeg-Builds/releases (ffmpeg-master-latest-win64-gpl.zip is probably the one you need). If you don't know exactly how to replace it, simply unpacking ffmpeg.exe in the same folder as yt-dlp should do the job.

    Btw the command automatically grabs the highest resolution for you (which isn't very high in this case).

    Hi White Snake,

    Thanks for your advice. I re-installed the newest ffmpeg (after 2 attempts) and I got it!

    Thank you so much again! You're such a life safer.

    Do you know if I need to update the newest ffmpeg and yt-dlp to my command prompt every now and then? I'm not sure if I can figure it out again as this is way beyond my IT knowledge, LOL

    I also searched thru youtube last night and added "Fetch V" as a Chrome extention. It seems to work also but need to play the video first then start to run the video and it will eventually download. However it takes longer in case of long videos.

    I have to say the school seems to have a very strong IT team LOL

    With the newest ffmpeg you are probably fine for a looong time.
    As for yt-dlp, depends what (which sites) you use it for, but you are also fine unless something specific changes in the site you are downloading from and perhaps the devs of yt-dlp needs to update yt-dlp to make it work again for your site...

    Well done, you're welcome.

    Like vegeta said, if you'll ever need to update ffmpeg, that will be in a long time. Sites often change the way they work though, so yt-dlp will need updates every now and then to update its extractor for vimeo. You can update yt-dlp with this command:

    Code:
    yt-dlp -U
