To receive the fastest support possible:
- Make sure you are logged in to your Vimeo account.
- Click Contact us at the top of the help center (or the blue chat box in the lower right corner).
- Once you type in your query, our system will first look for an answer to your question in our help center.
- If it’s unsuccessful, click Contact Support at the bottom of the window, then Submit a ticket to write to our team.
This method allows us to respond to you more quickly and gather more context about your account when we receive your message than we would with a direct email.
💡Tip: Include as much detailed information as you can in the form’s Description field so we can better investigate your issue from the beginning. Consider using Vimeo Record to demonstrate your issue and share the link with us.
Advanced, Premium, and Enterprise customers also have access to live chat support for livestreaming issues 24/7. The chat option can be found by clicking Support at the bottom of any of your live events' management pages.
Phone support is only available with an Enterprise account. If you have an Enterprise contract with us, you should have received your phone PIN and instructions for contacting Enterprise Support during the onboarding process via email. If you cannot locate your phone PIN, contact your account manager to have it sent to you.

Follow-up response rate
Follow-up response times may be longer than our first response time. Priority is assigned based on your plan as well as the nature of the issue.
Particularly complicated issues that require further investigation are often reassigned to an escalations specialist. Our specialists are trained to resolve issues as quickly as possible, but follow-up responses and resolutions can still take multiple days, especially if a given issue requires input from other teams, such as our developers.
