Vimeo API Setup for WordPress

Describes how to perform the one-time setup to use TubePress with Vimeo.
  1. You'll need a Vimeo account. If you don't have one, you can sign up for one for free.
  2. In the "Feed" tab of the TubePress options page, scroll down to the Vimeo area. Click the link that says "Click here to create a new Vimeo app". This will open a new tab in your web browser on
      Create new Vimeo app
  3. In the new web browser tab, you'll see a form from Vimeo.
      Vimeo app registration
    • Enter anything you'd like for the App Name, App Description, and App URL.
    • Important. For the "App Callback URLs" field, you will need to enter the exact value shown to you back on the TubePress options page. We recommend copying it to your clipboard and pasting it into the Vimeo form.

    • Check the box to accept Vimeo's license and terms, then click the "Create app" button.

    Here's an example of a form that's been properly filled out.

  4. After your new Vimeo app has been created, click the "Authentication" tab. You'll see your app's "Client Identifier" and "Client Secrets"

    The "Authentication" tab may be named "OAuth2"

    Enter those two values into the text fields on the TubePress options page.

  6. Click the "New token" button.
