What’s an album and how do I make one?

Albums allow you to organize videos into sets. You can create albums and add your videos, or other relevant videos you come across on Vimeo. If you've uploaded a lot of videos of your lovable cats, you can create an album labeled “Cats” and add all your cat videos. Then you can share your new album with all your cat-loving friends.

To create an album, hover your mouse over your profile image in the top navigation bar and click Collections. From there, you'll click Create new album. ​

Alternately, you can head to one of your video pages and click the collections button that appears in the video player. Click the + icon next to “Albums”, enter the album title, and click “add" to create the album.

Can I create a private Album?

Absolutely! Click Settings on your Album page and head to the Privacy tab. Check the box next to "Password protect this Album," choose a password, and click Save Changes. All videos within this Album can now be shared securely with your friends and family.

Please note that private Albums will not display a thumbnail cover to ensure the security of the videos within.

What happens when I add a private video to an Album?

That depends on the privacy settings of your Album!

Putting a private video in a public album does not make the video public. Only you (and anyone else with access to the video) will be able to see the video within the Album.

If you add a private video to a password-protected Album, anyone with the password to the Album will be able to watch any private videos within it, without having to enter any additional passwords. This method is great if you want to share groups of private videos with your friends and family.

Can I arrange the order of videos in my Album?

Yes! Go to your Album and click Settings. From there, choose the Videos tab and select the way you'd like to arrange your videos in the drop down menu next to “Always arrange by.” If you choose to arrange your videos manually, you can drag and drop up to 100 videos in the order you'd like. As always, don't forget to save your changes!

How do I change the thumbnail cover of my Album?

You can choose a thumbnail from any video in the Album, or keep the default thumbnail, which is the last video added to the Album. Private Albums will not display a thumbnail image to ensure the security of the videos within.

Can I publish an Album as a playlist?

You can use any of your Albums as a playlist by making it into a widget and embedding it on your site.

To create a playlist widget, head to this page: https://vimeo.com/tools/widget

You’ll want to click Create a Hubnut. Select “My Albums” from the top drop down menu next to “Choose a video stream,” and in the next drop down menu, select your Album. Once you've customized your Hubnut to your liking, grab the embed code and embed it on your site for the whole world to enjoy!

What happens when I remove a video from an Album and add it back in?

If a video that was previously removed is added back to an Album, the video will return to its original spot in the Album.

For example, if your Album is sorted by Most Recent, the video’s placement will be based on the time it was originally added, not the time you re-added it.
