A thin wrapper around requests for vimeo

Project description


A thin python wrapper for the vimeo API with upload-capabilities. It took me quite a while to get this figured out; the Vimeo
API is rather PHP-centric.


pip install git+


vimeo = Vimeo(access_token, access_token_secret, consumer_key, consumer_secret)

get vimeo info on a video

info = vimeo.request('vimeo.videos.getInfo', data=dict(video_id=video_id))

Perform any request like so: (the list of available requests can be found at [the vimeo api site](

result = vimeo.request(method, data=...)

upload video file

video_id = vimeo.upload(file="/home/okke-formsma/videos/")

set video metadata

vimeo.request('vimeo.videos.setTitle', data={
'video_id': video_id,
'title': "Vimeo-wrapper video",
vimeo.request('vimeo.videos.setDescription', data={
'video_id': video_id,
'description': "It is the best!",
vimeo.request('vimeo.videos.setDownloadPrivacy', data={
'video_id': video_id,
'download': False
