Vimeo is an online video website allowing its millions of users to watch and share videos. Vimeo resembles YouTube in many respects but at the same time differs from it. Other than a regular video website, it also serves as a tool for video makers. Video downloading is one of these tools. However, the Download option is available only for paid users with the permission of the uploader. On the one hand, this mode encourages video makers to produce attractive and quality videos. On the other hand, it somehow blocks video lovers from downloading and learning useful knowledge, say, how to swim, from the videos. Luckily, there are some tools available for you to download these videos and convert them to MP3 so that you can listen to them offline. This article introduces 3 ways on how to download and convert videos on Vimeo to MP3.
