Our /vimeo/store Robot

Export files to Vimeo

🤖/vimeo/store exports encoding results to vimeo.

Note: This Robot only accepts videos.

Warning: Vimeo's API limits the number of concurrent uploads per minute based on your Vimeo account plan. To see how many videos can be uploaded at once based on your plan, click the following link.


Since Vimeo works with OAuth, you will need to generate Template Credentials to use this Robot.

To change the title or description per video, we recommend to inject variables into your Template.

Usage example

Export an uploaded video to Vimeo and set its title and description:

  "steps": {
    "exported": {
      "robot": "/vimeo/store",
      "use": ":original",
      "credentials": "YOUR_VIMEO_CREDENTIALS",
      "title": "Transloadit: Video Example",
      "description": "Some nice description"


  • use

    String / Array of Strings / Object required

    Specifies which Step(s) to use as input.

    • You can pick any names for Steps except ":original" (reserved for user uploads handled by Transloadit)

    • You can provide several Steps as input with arrays:

      "use": [

    💡 That’s likely all you need to know about use, but you can view Advanced use cases.

  • credentials


    The authentication Template Credentials used for your Vimeo account. You can generate them on the Template Credentials page. You will be redirected to a Vimeo verification page. Accept the presented permissions and you will be good to go.

  • title


    The title of the video to be displayed on Vimeo.

  • description


    The description of the video to be displayed on Vimeo.

  • acl

    String ⋅ default: "anybody"

    Controls access permissions for the video. Here are the valid values:

    • "anybody" — anyone can access the video.
    • "contacts" — only those who follow the owner on Vimeo can access the video.
    • "disable" — the video is embeddable, but it's hidden on Vimeo and can't be played.
    • "nobody" — no one except the owner can access the video.
    • "password" — only those with the password can access the video.
    • "unlisted" — only those with the private link can access the video.
    • "users" — only Vimeo members can access the video.
  • password


    The password to access the video if acl is "password".

  • showcases

    Array of Strings ⋅ default: []

    An array of string IDs of showcases that you want to add the video to. The IDs can be found when browsing Vimeo. For example https://vimeo.com/manage/showcases/[SHOWCASE_ID]/info.

  • downloadable

    Boolean ⋅ default: false

    Whether or not the video can be downloaded from the Vimeo website.

    Only set this to true if you have unlocked this feature in your Vimeo accounting by upgrading to their "Pro" plan. If you use it while on their Freemium plan, the Vimeo API will return an "Invalid parameter supplied" error.

  • folder_id

    String ⋅ default: null

    The ID of the folder to which the video is uploaded.

    When visiting one of your folders, the URL is similar to https://vimeo.com/manage/folders/xxxxxxxx. The folder_id would be "xxxxxxxx".

Note: The URLs in the result JSON already point to the file on your target storage platform, so you can just save that URL in your database.
