How to download or embed a vimeo video

When we created the God to the rescue curriculum. We put the God to the rescue weekly videos on vimeo because we thought it would be the best way to get the videos out to people and preserve the quality. I have had a few people ask about how to download or embed a vimeo video so I thought I would put together a quick tutorial.

You have two options.

1. Copy the embed code, located to the right of the video (this is great for putting on a blog or website.)

2. The download link for the video you wish to download is located on the the right hand side below “about this video” banner and above the statistics.

Taking a closer look the download link should look like this.

To download a video from vimeo you must log in if you have an account or create an account if you haven’t yet. You can do that at the log in section at the top of the page.

Once you have created an account or logged in the download link should look like this.

Click on the “download this video” link. It will download to your desktop as a .mov file. You should be able to place it in a power point presentation or place it in your video projection software like Propresentor.

6 ways I overcome writers block.

The irony of this post is I am writing about writers block because I have writers block. I usually have no problem knowing what I am going to write for about two weeks at a time.

I also have a magazine article due at the end of next week. This is not a good time for writers block.

How do I personally get writers block

1. Stress
2. Sickness
3. Lots of creative demand (been doing lots of creative work lately)
4. Lack of sleep
5. Overwhelmed by projects and deadlines
6. Having to write something

How do I overcome writers block

1. Read more.
2. Talk to creative people
3. Change my environment. Get up and walk around.
4. Go to New York City – Most creative place I know.
5. Drink Coffee
6. Take a 15 min nap

That’s what I do what do you do?

I love baseball.

It’s a family heirloom.
History is more valuable in baseball. In most sports it’s what have you done for me lately.
It’s the only game where the defense has the ball
It’s the only game that spans the seasons (Well the seasons I happen to like)
It’s the only game that has no clock it’s played till it’s over
I can’t wait to bring my boys to the diamond and explain the game over hot dogs I paid way to much for.
I love the tradition the history and the strategy.
I love sitting in the stands turning my phone off and going back in time. There are very few things in life anymore that you can do that.

Baseball is reassuring.  It makes me feel as if the world is not going to blow up.  ~Sharon Olds

Sweet Lord I love baseball.

YouTube Friday: God to the Rescue

I have been so blown away by the response to God to the Rescue curriculum Gina, Jonathan, Dan and I did. Thank so much for all your kind words and support so blessed to be a part of the Kidmin community. We offered the download earlier in the week we didn’t have the finishing touches done yet. Dan and his team did a great job writing and producing them. There is a title video for the series and an intro and outro skit video for each week.

You can download everything by filling out the form at the bottom of a previous post. If you have already filled out this form and have the content but need the slides and video I have your email and will be sending you a link.

Here is the title video Dan and his team made for the series.
