API woes? We can help.
When it comes to questions, there's no rate limit.
The API, FYI
API-related things that we’ve probably already explained elsewhere.
Policies and Mysteries
Vimeo policies, bugs, or anything that requires the exchange of secret tokens and passwords.
The Vimeo Developer community is pretty darn cool — and active. So if you have a question about our API, there’s likely someone just a token’s throw away who can help. Vimeo and Stack Exchange worked together to build a place where you can run free and find the answers you need.
Some things to keep in mind
Before you journey down the rabbit hole, take a moment to familiarize yourself with our API-specific forum decorum.
Make sure you search through existing threads before starting your own. It’s possible that someone has already asked the same question — and gotten an answer!
It’s important to accurately tag your topic or question:
- Vimeo API: For items related to the Simple or Advanced API.
- Player API: Anything about the Player API.
- Vimeo: Not sure what the tag should be? This is your guy.
Sometimes, even the most determined developers get stumped. Keep an eye out for the friendly faces of these Vimeo staff members, who will be chiming in from time to time with their professional opinions.
