Can't Access Vimeo - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Having Problems with Accessing
Elaine Darlington Brown · 27 March 2014 - 03:10

Vimeo has been down for me since yesterday

Ron Dormer · 26 March 2014 - 13:46

No videos will play after accessing them, video I uploaded yesterday is not there anymore. VIMEO WHERE ARE YOU... PHONE HOME!!!

Anders Henrysson · 26 March 2014 - 13:44

Cannot access, it started yesterday, made a reset of the router, cleared cache, tried different browsers, changed DNS, but nothing helps. Youtube and other sites works perfectly. Please solve this.

AmeriCares Nonprofit · 26 March 2014 - 06:09

Vimeo down - none of our videos playable - what's up?

Dasa Raimanova · 26 March 2014 - 02:03

Cannot access vimeo for 2 days (since yesterday)

Simone Micheli · 25 March 2014 - 06:32

Cannot play any videos...

Kellie Frazier · 12 March 2014 - 04:26

My training videos are not uploading as usual and I have customers waiting for this product. What takes 5 minutes has taken 5 hours and still not working, even on different computers. Where is customer service for vimeo??

Bob Grant · 10 March 2014 - 21:26

None of my vimeo videos are playing on any of my websites. Can't get a hold of them. This is horrible. Customers freaking out. Not good Vimeo, not good.

Kooj Chuhan · 5 March 2014 - 04:10

Vimeo "problem loading page" a few times now - all other website fine...

Matthew Villani · 10 February 2014 - 05:40

The HTML seems to have crashed and it looks like one of those crappy Tripod or Angelfire websites from the 90's. And none of the links really work.

Bryan Culbertson · 2 February 2014 - 19:26

this is far to common with vimeo, day after day they lose credibility

Adriano De Vita · 2 February 2014 - 07:16

Still down in Venice (Italy). The images load but no way to play them.

Peter Little · 1 February 2014 - 14:07

Vimeo is down. For while earlier today I got some work done. Then it got eccentric, and now it is dead. Boston.

Federico Morandini · 1 February 2014 - 12:49

"we've experienced some player instability due to a DDos attack." that's the message i read at the top of my page.

Jordan Matthew · 1 February 2014 - 12:41

My circle ci tests are failing because the chromedriver hangs waiting for our homepage to load which is not finishing due to vimeo.

Julian Mather · 1 February 2014 - 12:22

Australian members of my membership site can only see a grey box with a sad emoticon

Shaul Bar-Lev · 1 February 2014 - 11:55

Site is reachable, but any video form (even embeds) is not playable. :(

Rachel Jones · 1 February 2014 - 11:52

While the site is accessible, the ability to play Vimeo videos is down due to DDoS attacks. I hope it gets back up quickly!

Susan Liddy · 1 February 2014 - 11:41

my vimeo videos are not playing on a video training series I have running...

Bobby James · 1 February 2014 - 11:26

Down in Vancouver too... yes clients are looking to review our work right now too. Some info posted on there site would be apreiciated

Terry Tex Turner · 1 February 2014 - 11:12

Page loads, but can't get any playback of any videos -- mine or others -- on laptop, Roku or phone. · 31 January 2014 - 13:50

Thanks for the responses. It shows it up but still is not accessible to me ;-(

Jon K. Williams · 31 January 2014 - 13:46

Austin calling - no here - Bad Gateway for at least the last hour.

Sylvia Toy St Louis · 31 January 2014 - 13:25

I have been on Vimeo since August 2010. A similar blockage happened once before about a year ago. This is resolving quite a lot faster than before.

Kevin Ames · 31 January 2014 - 13:19

This is the first time I have experienced this kind of outage from Vimeo. This website says it's up. I cannot connect here in Atlanta. Gateway error continues. Vimeo Pro seems to be serving videos with no problems.

Russell Challenger · 31 January 2014 - 13:19

Not a common occurrence, but it would never happen on YouTube. I feel like an idiot for signing up for Vimeo Pro now. · 31 January 2014 - 13:15

as a first time user and paying pro can I ask the group if this is a common occurrence?

Peter Little · 31 January 2014 - 12:56

502 bad gateway error. This site is not stable. I still cant connect. Boston area.

Thomas Hughes · 31 January 2014 - 12:48

Vimeo is not opening for me. I'm getting some unusual page that opens and says Amazon on it?

Robert Lawson · 31 January 2014 - 12:33

Okay, I'm back up in Seattle. Seem to be able to access all of my videos, settings, etc.

Kevin Ames · 31 January 2014 - 12:15

Yes, I just got kicked off of my account too. It wouldn't be so bad if they would communicate what's happening and a possible fix time...

Simon Payne · 31 January 2014 - 12:08

Yeah its down in the UK too. Like others here, I'm currently applying for jobs and my online portfolio is inaccessible at the worst possible moment!!! grrrrr

Jacob Fisher · 31 January 2014 - 11:55

This sucks applying for a job and all of my online portfolio links dont work!! Hopefully the employer understands cause they use vimeo too. But still as a student who gives vimeo part of my very limited budget every month I am a little bummed out.

Peter Little · 31 January 2014 - 11:55

Vimeo is down in Boston too. I just gave them money too. Not surprised there is no fail over admitting a problem. Ever tried their tech support? Love, Vimeo.

Kevin Ames · 31 January 2014 - 11:53

Vimeo is down in Atlanta, GA. Will you give us a status update on facebook please?

Wolfgang Webb · 31 January 2014 - 11:52

Down in Toronto too. I have a client waiting to review a cut. I think compensation is in order for those of us who who pay for the service.

Jeffrey Perkins · 31 January 2014 - 11:26

Down in Philadelphia. It's be intermittently available for the past 3 hours or so. 504 Gateway Time-out / nginx error.

Ty McGee · 31 January 2014 - 11:18

vimeo is down is southern california as well. really a terrible inconvenience!

Aaron Bannasch · 31 January 2014 - 10:59

David Bremner · 31 January 2014 - 10:53

It is strange. seems to be down, yet the videos that I have embedded on my site seem to work. So I guess that Vimeo is only "mostly dead".

Donnie G. Reynolds · 31 January 2014 - 10:51

Ugh, how can they have no fail over? Some of us who PAY for the Pro service kinda expect it to be admin'd like a PRO service. Certainly makes us look bad to our clients.

Not even a simple, competent redirect to a splash page that says "It's not you, it's us" so everyone knows "Ah, at least they know and are working on it." Does anyone outside of vimeo offices/firewall know the entire site has crashed?

Aaron Bannasch · 31 January 2014 - 10:49

Vimeo returns 504 Gateway Time-out when accessing from local IP in Grand Rapids, MI but works fine on Sprint LTE, both mobile site on phone and on desktop via tethering.

Josh Hall · 31 January 2014 - 10:09

Vimeo is down here in VA. First time the site has been down for me in the years I use it, and what I am able to do with vimeo makes it worth the 70 bucks or so I pay for the plus version. I just hope it comes back ASAP, as I have clients waiting to approve some content, that is up on vimeo.

Min Reid-Richards · 31 January 2014 - 10:05

Yup... down... any idea when it's back up?? Clients are waiting for their edit :/

Autumn Litchfield · 31 January 2014 - 09:55

I think they are upgrading some of the website because the uploader changed last week and works better now.

Alvin Leveriza · 31 January 2014 - 09:24

Still down, seeing a "Welcome to nginx on the Amazon Linux AMI!" page.

Douglas Charles Robertson · 31 January 2014 - 09:14

I just got the nginx welcome page - I think they're rolling out new servers

Gene Avakyan · 31 January 2014 - 09:08

Vimeo is a great service even though its down at the moment - I even pay good money for it. This is the first time I've seen it down in a couple of years and I certainly won't be leaving anytime soon. Google was down last week - it happens - even 99.999% promised uptime is still not 100%.

Dave Keen · 31 January 2014 - 08:50

wow, do they suck this badly all the time? i just joined recently, maybe this is a bad site... gonna unjoin. oh no i can't cuz i can't get in---

Clair Marslen · 31 January 2014 - 00:10

I can't login and havent been able to for over an hour, what is happening? anyone else found this? vimeo kicked me out when I was working on videos saying "We'll be right back. Logins are temporarily disabled"

Steve Thompson · 29 January 2014 - 02:15

Received many emails response from the company that they have reset my password and I should try clearing my cache, etc. Did all that - THEN I see all these postings! So, it looks like there have been previous issues FOR A WHILE. Would have been good to have known this as I have funeral clients waiting to see picture collage to be used at a funeral in a few days - but also the waste of valuable time!

Zane Adams · 27 January 2014 - 06:40

I found and embedded video that was not working, clicked the link to the site and the site would not load completely either.

Carlos Martins · 26 January 2014 - 21:19

Embedded videos from vimeo are not working, went to the site and videos are not playing. Is someone having the same prob?

SPITFIRE 944 · 24 January 2014 - 22:55

Can't log in. It says it has sent me a link to reset the password, but nothing has shown up in the past three hours. I have tried multiple times.

Patrick Stephenson · 11 January 2014 - 22:45

Yeah, I'm getting the same issue. Was just uploading a video, it was almost done, and now I can't even log in to see if it finished... Typical Vimeo, unfortunately.

Adam Schomer · 4 January 2014 - 23:53

Vimeo right now is utterly slow and failing. Dissapointing for us Pro users.

Rachel Pierce · 11 December 2013 - 18:15

Getting persistent DNS errors. Time out errors when attempting to upload directly from Final Cut.

Scott Thomas · 14 November 2013 - 13:53

Vimeo seems unreachable from Australia at the moment. All the embedded links are not working either

Sebastian Kaupert · 19 October 2013 - 06:52

Vimeo is down. Can't reach it through either TimeWarner or Verizon. No trouble with google, my banking site, facebook, other sites. Oh, and twitter is down as well.

Pamela Aveni · 13 September 2013 - 11:39

I cannot send links from my vimeo. today as I tried several times. What is up?

Patri O'Connor · 26 June 2013 - 09:29

it's been down for a while now... why isn't it resolved? might have to move to youtube. :-(

JoAnna Mendl Shaw · 14 June 2013 - 06:34

Have lost access my Vimeo account. Also cannot watch ANY Vimeo videos on line. Click on video and it shuts my Firefox down

Reggae Flims · 29 April 2013 - 01:40

vimeo search is not working, tried different browsers too, no results for any searches! weird...

Amanda Kubik · 19 March 2013 - 08:49

I have tried clearing my cache, cookies, and the DNS flush, and still cannot access Vimeo. I get the log-in screen and then it loads for a long time, only to show a bulleted list of links that don't ever load anything. Something is clearly not working on the Vimeo site.

Frie Ndlyjoe · 26 February 2013 - 13:28

No videos converting in Vimeo. And no notice to users that they're having tech difficulties. I had to find out on Twitter. Thanks for letting me waste a bunch of time re-compressing and re-uploading, jerks. WIll be researching a new solution.

Tim Seward · 13 February 2013 - 14:26

vimeo video are not playing site wide.. Vimeo staff says they are experience hicups on the site with the player for the past hour??? WTF.. I need to get back to work Vimeo I am paying you good money for your service.. now render it as agreed!!!

John Thomas · 8 February 2013 - 11:57

None of my videos have a play bar. The images load but no way to play them.

Pea Wormsworth · 19 January 2013 - 01:06

hi christina. i just wanted to report that it is working from Canada. It has been working for 2 days now and the video and forum feeds seem to be updating now.

Pea Wormsworth · 17 January 2013 - 13:28

I think the site is still "down". In that no updates are occurring. If you search the videos you will not see anything more recent then 2 days ago. Also, there are no posts in the forum more recent then 2 days ago. I think they are running on a backup and not a live system with updates. I think they are still having problems.

Scott Thomas · 16 January 2013 - 15:24

come on people! it's the first time I can remember it being down in 3 years, cut them some slack. There service is above excellent

Timo Albert · 16 January 2013 - 14:56

i pay 200$+ for a year fot this service and now when i need it, its down.

Zoltán Varró-Bodoczi · 16 January 2013 - 14:54

From vimeo twitter: "Vimeo is a big site and attacks happen, but this is by far the most aggressive we've seen in 7 years. We truly thank you for your patience." "Very sorry guys, we're dealing with a DDoS attack that's been causing instability all day."

Richard Knight · 16 January 2013 - 13:56

Visioncut Madrid · 16 January 2013 - 13:33

I just purchased a pro suscription yesterday, and I see is down, I can not upload new videos from FCPX... Does any one have an idea when this will be solved?

Will Love · 16 January 2013 - 13:11

My embeds play that good, but I still need to upload some videos dose anyone have pro account and if so is it working?

Adrian Fulle · 16 January 2013 - 13:00

Hey Vimeo, we got clients waiting for links. So do a gazillion other people. At least get a message out explaining something... You don't have to know everything, but maybe an ETA on when the site will be back up?

Pea Wormsworth · 16 January 2013 - 12:59

I am able to access the API for video info and thumbnail images are being returned. But their video player is not functioning at all.

Al Gardner · 16 January 2013 - 12:51

I have a Vimeo plus account as well. This does suck but you know shit happens.

We can leave Vimeo, but we would probably come back for the same reason we chose Vimeo in the first place. I hear alot of people always threaten to leave, but the truth is there's no where to go for the price and performance ratio that Vimeo offers. If there was we'd all be gone. And if you think they are the only serve vulnerable to outages, think again.

Noah Pearson · 16 January 2013 - 12:50

I am leaving Vimeo, been with them as a pro user for nearly 5 years and have had a lot of issues lately. They used to have an absolutely fantastic service and will be a pain to move all the videos and links. Was on the fence earlier but probably worth it at this point unless they explain what has been going on and address my low expectations moving forward...

Len Dickter · 16 January 2013 - 12:49

Site is partially down for me. I can log in and perform basic tasks, but all film uploads are stuck in processing, and I can't upload any thumbnail images. It's taken my entire morning to get that far, so frustrating as I have people waiting for me to upload. Am accessing the site from LA.

Jennifer Lyne · 16 January 2013 - 12:47

Just pitched a potential client, and he's waiting. Filmmaker and producer here - I use it for big jobs and small, mainly for portfolio pieces. Hope it's up in the next hour or so.

Jason Vetterli · 16 January 2013 - 12:40

Clients waiting on a video. Marketing waiting on a URL for an urgent email. Let's go. Also, reading all the post here, it seems like the real users of Vimeo are not the "artist community" but business. Maybe time to re-tool the message?

Michael J. Nathanson · 16 January 2013 - 12:40

Out of simple courtesy for us clients, will someone at Vimeo please inform us as to the status?? We know you're reading this so what is going on and when do you project a resolution? Even Forrest Gump agrees we'd ALL like an answer.

Nostalgia Film · 16 January 2013 - 12:34

I wished they'd address the issue to their users... Our embedded videos are working, but am waiting to upload a new project and would be nice if they'd announce the issue and an ETA.

Vincent Dee · 16 January 2013 - 12:34

south bay area here, down still... can anyone confirm accessing vimeo from a mobile device (iphone/android) works? works on my phone, desktop (reg. wifi) doesnt.

Jennifer Brown · 16 January 2013 - 12:19

I just convinced my client that Vimeo was the way to go, and now they can't see their videos, not helping my case!

Brent Forrest · 16 January 2013 - 12:12

I just finished uploading a 500 meg movie - I think I crashed it with awesomeness.

Robert Lawson · 16 January 2013 - 12:11

I would definitely think that some kind of compensation - increased HD limit, free month, something - would be in order, at least for those of us who pay. I have a client waiting to review a video and I have limited time to make any changes. While this kind of reminds me of Louie CK, "Everything's Amazing and No One's Happy, " it still blows.

Guy Thomson · 16 January 2013 - 11:59

such a pain it was in the middle of encoding a video to hd when it went down for me. thought my upload had an error or crashed. no warning.

Pea Wormsworth · 16 January 2013 - 11:58

for those seeing a homepage and not much more, you are probably getting a cached page from your ISP not a page from vimeo.

Vincent Dee · 16 January 2013 - 11:41

This is weird, on my android phone its working.. well at least i can access from that device fine..

Michael J. Nathanson · 16 January 2013 - 11:35

I can't believe this! We just sent our vimeo link last night to about 10 parties who are reviewing our work. Has there been any reply from Vimeo on cerrent status and resolution??

Vincent Dee · 16 January 2013 - 11:34

still getting timeouts when i ping vimeo. my api calls are timingout as well..

Shawn Peters · 16 January 2013 - 11:33

This is ridiculous!! I need to make a video private and I can't log in.

Tommie S Hata · 16 January 2013 - 11:01

Access to the vimeo website is down but embedded videos are still playing.

Myles O'Reilly · 16 January 2013 - 10:54

Vimeo down.. and just when a vid is trending.. there should be compensation for this..

Keith Kobland · 16 January 2013 - 10:47

Very frustrating, and agree.. for those of us paying a couple hundred dollars for this service, unacceptable.

Rob Ainscough · 16 January 2013 - 10:44

Yes Vimeo is down for me... msn went down last night also. I think this Java 7 vulnerability was a bigger issue than most expected

Craig Hauger · 16 January 2013 - 10:43

Don't you hate it when you pay for a service and it goes offline.. humm very inconvenient :(

Zëk Stewart · 30 November 2012 - 10:10

Same thing that happened on the 5th. I'm unable to search, view linked videos or even read their terms of service agreement.
