Hey guys,

We made a Facebook app! It's been a good time coming, but it's finally done. And we're pretty proud of how it turned out.

The main benefit to you is adding a Vimeo box on your Facebook profile to showcase up to date streams of videos you upload, like, and appear in. This allows your Facebook friends to see the videos you put on Vimeo.

The other piece of the app, the Vimeo canvas page, serves as an entry level version of Vimeo for new fans of Vimeo. They can start commenting, liking videos, and uploading all from Facebook.

The app was developed by Kevin and myself, with support from Sox, Blake, and Andrew!

Hopefully we'll get your videos out to as many people as you want seeing them, and adopt some new friends to the Vimeo community.

You can add the app here.

Thanks!

UPDATE: If you run into a problem where Facebook prompts you to login repeatedly, try going here. We're aware of this problem, and will fix it soon.

I'm prompted for a password when I try to add it, and it doesn't accept my Facebook password or my Vimeo password.

Am I doing something wrong?

Same for me...it won't work.

This is so awesome! Maybe I'll actually do stuff on facebook now. You guys did a great job.

I too can not add it as it repeatedly tells me that my password is wrong.

That works. Thanks Pat

Finally!! Great!

One little thing though. All of those crappy apps have invite friends function, which is mostly forced upon us! Even though I hate that, I would love a "invite your friends" option to Vimeo app.

Wouldn't it be nice?

Patrick Moberg

Patrick Moberg PRO

Agreed. We'll see if we can work this functionality in gracefully. Thanks!

Works like a charm, but how do I use this app to send Vampire bites to my Facebook friends?

This app is amazing - super, super awesome job guys. :)

thanks for the app - i don't have to rely on the Notes RSS function of FaceBook anymore - yay! go vimeo!

YES! Very nice!

I would love to have more control over which videos are shown on my profile, but I'm sure the features will come with time, yes?

Same. Or at least an option to have the videos arranged randomly versus chronologically. Some of the videos I like most show up last because they're older, etc and I would rather only have a few favorites up.

Our goal was to keep it as simple and automated as possible. But I think you guys are right. We'll take another look at this. Thanks.

Either way its still completely awesome, so thanks!

I love it!! The integration works so well. Just one request--when it's in the narrow column, can we have a list of our videos instead of the icon? That would make it a bit clearer for my friends. Otherwise, well worth the wait!! :)

What a coincidence... I just signed up to Facebook last Wednesday.

woo, I just started using Vimeo. Perfect timing :)

This will probably be the first app i'd want to share, so, once that's available I'm all over sharing the Vimeo love.

Great work! Rarely visit facebook myself, but at least now I can have some decent quality video on there with a nice player instead of their own rubbish player and inferior video.

Love it! Good job guys. :)

I'm not looking to start some drawn out political argument, but I don't really see what Vimeo has to do with your concerns about Facebook. Those people, like you, who think Facebook's risks or dangers outweigh its benefits simply won't use it. I don't really get the implication that Vimeo has some sort of subversive ulterior motive for creating an app.

Holden Kim

it's really good! but it would be better if you could add one more option on drop down menu under "see videos 'user' 1. appears in 2. uploaded 3. likes", which lets the user pick one specific video of his/hers. Because i have only one video window and I want to show everybody what i think is my best work right there and then and hopefully encourage them to go check out other videos as well. Thanks for listening! you guys are amazing!

I love the app, but facebook will delete those videos that use commercial music because of the "copiright" and facbook's policies and procedures, so good luck!!

They took off some of mine, including the one of the red trees and the one of when I was locked out of my house :(

Why use facebook to get to vimeo when I have vimeo right in front of me? seems backwards.

I hate social networking sites.

Ted Avery

This is great, but totally useless on my profile when put in the small left column, which is exactly where I wanted to put it :( Nothing shows up, no thumbnails, no nothing

Patrick Moberg

Patrick Moberg PRO

Hey Ted. We're going to rethink this functionality. You're totally right, it should show some thumbnails. Check back soooon.

I can't add the app...the "Log in to Vimeo" page appears over and over again. The apps.facebook.com/vimeoapp/your_videos page mentioned above does show up, but doesn't have me logged in, and gives me a "#302" error when I try to log in. I hope it is fixed soon, I've been waiting for this!

Working good, guys.

Oops. I accidently linked my Vimeo account to my girlfriend's Facebook account (not realizing she was still logged in). Now I can't link it to MY Facebook account because it says it's already linked to hers. Is there a way to unlink the accounts? Please help!

jthx1138

jthx1138

Chris, I'm having a similar problem. Did you ever figure out how to resolve this?

Patrick Moberg

Patrick Moberg PRO

There's a link in the right hand column of the Facebook app to unlink the two accounts. Message me if you have any trouble finding it.

Jeff Hardin

Jeff Hardin

Awesome app - thanks, y'all!!! :)

Question: is there a way to export specific channels to FB, rather than the whole lot of videos?

Also, can you export specific channels to FB groups you administer?

Thanks!

Julie Gibbons

ooh ooh ooh - I love this app :o) I've just started using Vimeo - and this has me completely converted. Way to go Vimeo. You really do rock.

Is there a way to tag friends that appear in your videos? Facebook's native video app does that, but it isn't very good.

Jack Railton

I second that! Can you allow the app to be used on Pages (facebook app by facebook) Please!

Danny Carter

I don't know if its something to do with my browsers (Safari and Opera) but this app just will not work. Refuses to play videos.

Thanks

I would really like to use this app on my Greenpeace Pages. Are you planning to develop this function?

Thanks
