This feature requires a paid Vimeo membership.
Using custom URLs can help brand and organize your content. This guide will show you how to create a custom URL to share with your viewers. Please note that on mobile devices, shared custom URLs will open in a mobile web browser rather than the Vimeo app.
In this article:
Create a custom URL
- Select the video from your library.
Click on the link icon 🔗 on the top right side of the Video settings page.
In the field labeled Customize link, enter the desired custom URL for your video, consisting of only letters or numbers. You will need to add the custom portion after the username.
- Once the custom link is available, you will get a prompt on the settings page.
💡Tip: The format of custom video URLs is vimeo.com/username/thecustompart. For example, a video on our staff account about the Vimeo player has the custom URL: vimeo.com/staff/player.
Privacy settings for custom URLs
For custom URLs to work, your video must have one of the following privacy settings:
- Unlisted or Hide from Vimeo
- Share with Password
⚠️Note: If you are a Basic or Free user, you do not have access to create new custom URLs or to edit previously existing ones. Instead, you will be prompted to upgrade your account to access this feature.
