To watch a Vimeo in VLC, we need to capture the actual video URL. Firstly, hover the mouse over the video window until the sharing options appear. Then copy the embed code.


The Siege 1998 from Dr-Hany Ali on Vimeo.

Copy the actual video URL.

https://player.vimeo.com/video/145562942

Then paste this into the Open Network Stream option.

After a short wait the video will open in VLC. This is how easy it is to play Vimeo without leaving a browser open. A very nice trick indeed.
