As you know, Vimeo has a much smaller user base than YouTube though, it's still fairly huge. Even better, based on my own experience, I'm totally addicted to the ad-free viewing with extremely comfortable video quality. So it's no surprise that many people are impressed by some exciting and thought-provoking short movies on Vimeo and plan to download and burn them to DVD.
If you have no idea about the procedure, you'll find a satisfactory answer in the following content, which provides two free programs to make it work, so that you can enjoy Vimeo movies on DVD offline in a home DVD player. Well, without further ado, here is the complete process of burning Vimeo to DVD.

To tell the truth, despite no download option, there are still several methods to download Vimeo videos to local drive. However, I strongly recommend that you start with Free HD Video Converter Factory, which not only allows you to save video from Vimeo, YouTube, Facebook and other pop websites, but also converts the downloaded files to DVD standard format to speed up the DVD burning process. Now download and install it below and get started.
Visit https://vimeo.com/watch and find your preferred video, copy the video URL from the browser address bar. Launch Free HD Video Converter Factory and open the Downloader module. Click on New Download button to pop up a new window.
Press "Paste and Analyze" button to automatically input the copied URL and start the parsing process. After a short while, it will display all available video resolutions up to 8K in MP4 format for your choice. Click OK to add your first download. With the same steps, you're able to add multiple items for batch downloading. Finally, specify an output directory to store the downloaded Vimeo videos, then hit the Download All button to start the downloading process.
When the downloading is finished, close the Downloader and open Converter. Import the downloaded files and select MPG (MPEG-2) format on the right side. As you know, the standard DVD's resolution is 720x480 for NTSC format and 720x576 for PAL format in either 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratio. You can customize the details on "Parameter settings" window underneath format profile. Lastly, assign a destination folder and hit Run button to convert Vimeo video to DVD standard.
Before the DVD burning work, you still need to make some preparations:
1. An internal/external DVD Drive Burner
2. Blank DVD Recordable Disc (DVD-R VS DVD+R)
Insert a blank DVD-5 or DVD-9 disc into the DVD drive Burner, and run DVDStyler. A new project window will pop up, you can name Disc label, select DVD capacity, Video and Audio Format, Aspect Ratio, and then click OK.
Select a favorite DVD menu template, give it a name and click OK to proceed. You can also design and beautify the DVD menu by clicking on the Backgrounds tab on the left sidebar.
Click on the File Browser tab on the left sidebar to locate the downloaded Vimeo video files you want to burn and drag them to the Title Set Manager below. At the bottom of DVDStyler, you will see how much free space is left, DO NOT exceed the DVD capacity.
After all is done, click the red disk button on the top toolbar, select your DVD Drive Burner in the pop-up window, and finally click Start button to burn Vimeo to DVD.
That's the whole workflow of transferring Vimeo to DVD at no cost. Actually, DVDStyler supports importing various video formats, and it can finish the video transcoding and DVD burning at the same time. You may know that, however, DVDStyler is not good at video transcoding so that it would be take a long time or get stuck in the process. That's the reason why I recommend to convert downloaded Vimeo video to DVD standard format beforehand in Part 1. Anyway, hope you'll succeed in Vimeo to DVD burning. Good luck!
