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.

YouTube Friday: Best Political Speech Ever

A few weeks ago I had a video of a southern politician who made a very funny video and had an equally funny website. This week it’s us Yankees who are at the receiving end of a crazy political video. If you want to be a more effective public speaker as you watch this make sure you have a fresh pad of paper and a pen because he has a Masters in CommuniCATION.

This guy is a Yankee and straight up nuts. Enjoy.

YouTube Friday: Why the North won the war

One of the things I find funny is how serious the south still takes the civil war. I remember hearing people from the south on a few occasions say that they can’t believe that the north won the war, after someone from the north does something stupid (we definitely have our share of ding-dongs up here.) I started to think maybe the south should have won, they are more polite, they have sonic, chick-fil-a and sweet tea. Then I discovered this video and the corresponding website and I was reminded afresh why the North won the war.

Here is his incredibly nuts website. Caution! Ducktape your head first so it doesn’t explode as you read.

My latest wedding: Licia and Nick

Many of you may not know but I do wedding video’s on the side. My website is Samueljonathanfilms.com. Nick and Licia were great got to see a few other friends from previous weddings we have done that is always a treat. Licia and Nick were a great couple who were very gracious. I can’t wait to put their video together. Here are a few pictures I took with my iPhone.
