From there, you'll be able to change all sorts of settings, including basic stuff (like the video title and thumbnail image), privacy permissions, embed customizations and more. Don’t forget to save your changes!
You can delete your video by clicking on the “Settings” button below the player on the video page, navigating to the “Video File” tab, and clicking on the red “Delete this video” button. You’ll need to enter your account password to complete the deletion of your video.
You can delete any video (or multiple videos) at once by using our video Organizer.
Select the videos you’d like to remove from Vimeo, choose Delete from the menu on the left, then enter your password and confirm the action.
WARNING: Any videos you delete will be permanently removed from Vimeo. This action cannot be undone. Be careful out there!
To change your thumbnail, go to the video's individual page and click Settings beneath the video player. From there, scroll down to the Thumbnails section.
You've got three options for picking your perfect image:
- Clicking the “Choose” icon will allow you to scroll through the entirety of your video to select a specific frame. When you find the image you like, click it to select it and then click Use this frame.
- We'll generate eight thumbnails for you when you click the "Random" icon. If you don't see anything you like, just click See more options and we'll cook up eight new images for you to peruse. Once you find the frame you like, click Use this thumbnail.
- Want to upload your own thumbnail image? Go for it! Clicking the "Upload" icon will allow you to choose a JPG, GIF, or PNG file from your computer. We recommend uploading an image with the same resolution as your video for optimal awesomeness.

Plus, PRO and Business members can choose to store their source files on Vimeo. In your Account Settings, click the Videos tab. Scroll down to the “File Settings” section, then check the box that says, "Keep my source video files.” From that point on, we’ll keep the source files for any videos you upload.
Downloading source files: If you store your source files, you will be able to download them at any time. If you enable downloads on your videos, any of your viewers who are logged in to their Vimeo accounts will also be able to download your source file in addition to any Vimeo versions (HD, etc.). (Logged out members cannot access source files.)
It’s worth mentioning that bigger is not always better when it comes to video files. The Vimeo HD versions of your videos are often smaller than your source files, even though the quality is not noticeably different. Therefore, it’s usually better for viewers to download your Vimeo HD versions to minimize download time without sacrificing quality.
Lapsing membership: You must maintain your Plus, PRO, or Business membership to keep your source files. If your Plus, PRO, or Business membership lapses, your source files will be removed after 60 days.
From your video page, click Settings below the video player. From there, head to the Video File tab and click "Replace this video." This allows you to upload a new video file while keeping the video URL, comments, Stats, likes, tags, and all the other information associated with the video.
During the replacement process, the original video will remain viewable while the new one is uploaded. Once the replacement video finishes uploading and begins conversion, the original video will no longer be viewable, and will soon be replaced.
Go to your video page and click Settings beneath the video player. From there, select the Advanced tab and click Add a new photo. Paste the URLs for the Flickr or Instagram photos you'd like to add, separating URLs by commas, and then click Add.
Pro Tip: Make sure your photos are public before you add them here, or else they won't show up!
Check the box beside "Download this video" and save your changes. Your viewers will now see a Download button on the video page. How do ya like them straightforward apples?
You can change the privacy settings for certain videos only by paying a visit to our handy video Organizer. Select the videos you want to change, choose Privacy from the menu on the left, then enter your password and confirm the action.
You can also use the Organizer to add or remove videos to and from your collections.
If you’re looking to apply the same set of embed settings to a group of videos, learn more about using embed presets.
Caution: Anyone can view your videos through these URLs. If you add them to a third-party player outside of Vimeo, people may be able to find and share these links.
