Getting Started


As of version 3.0, you must have a Vimeo plan that includes third-party player support (Pro or higher). If this is not feasible for your project, previous versions are still available for download, albeit with no long-term support.

Create an API key at with the video_files permission, and paste it into the module configuration form.

Before ingesting items into Omeka, upload your subtitles via Vimeo dashboard > Manage videos > Distribution > Subtitles. You should also set your custom video thumbnail at this time, if desired.


No additional setup necessary, just start importing!


This module is compatible with CSVImport, but only for Vimeo configurations.

In order to use this module in conjunction with AmazonS3, you must setup a CORS policy on your buckets.
