vimeo now itself provides an option to d/l the files as either avi or mp4.

    But for those who don’t have an account, it is not possible directly.

      Grr - September 5, 2012

      no, it could be d/l without having an account on vimeo.
      the catch is the the video uploader should not have disabled the download option while uploading the video

        Oh, Not sure about that but when I opened random videos without signing in, I couldn’t download videos.

Vimeo is not only behind of YouTube in popularity but also in content also. Not that much rich in videos. But in future it may be one of the strong competitor of YouTube.Its a cool site.
