Vimeo uses digital rights management tools so that video extraction applications, like the one we will use, cannot extract paid content.

Instead, such attempts will give you the advance of the paid video, not the paid video itself. I tested this at an event on wXwNOW, a subscription service for a German wrestling promotion hosted by Vimeo.

Regarding the Vimeo Terms of Service

A little note about the process: since Vimeo doesn’t want you to download the clips, you’ll have to think twice before doing this too often.
