Vimeo Integration

Vimeo is a video-sharing platform that includes features such as live-streaming and customization.
The Vimeo integration syncs video assets between Bynder and Vimeo, allowing easy content pushing and maintaining a single system of record. Users can publish videos from Bynder directly to Vimeo, eliminating the need to manually download and reupload to Vimeo. As new versions of videos are uploaded in Bynder, the new versions are added to Vimeo. However, changes made in Vimeo do not affect the corresponding asset in Bynder.

Important Information

Before setting up the integration, please ensure the following is set up:

  • Make sure you set up your metaproperties in Bynder ahead of time to allow for this integration to sync.
  • If the related metaproperties are deleted in your settings then the sync will terminate. You can restore the connection by editing the integration.

Metaproperty Information

The following Metaproperties will automatically be created during sync. 

  • Send to Vimeo: Yes/No (which is the primary trigger)
  • Send to Vimeo Status
  • Vimeo URL

How to Use Integration

After the configuration, video assets in Bynder will sync to Vimeo based on the metaproperty triggers set during integration. Once the configuration is complete, the application will create the configured metaproperties, and their options, and make them dependent on the primary trigger (Send to Vimeo). Meaning, they cannot be filled until a user selects Send to Vimeo: Yes.

Once selected, the other Metaproperties will show and have the correct options for those fields. The interval will run every 5 minutes to check and see if there are any new assets in Bynder to send to Vimeo. The Vimeo to Bynder sync (if enabled) will sync daily. If you delete an asset in Bynder it will remain in Vimeo and visa versa.

Send a Video to Vimeo from Bynder

  1. Navigate to your Asset Bank
  2. Select the video you would like to send.
  3. Scroll down to the metaproperty created to sync videos to Vimeo.
  4. Select the  Send to Vimeo metaproperty and fill out any other dependent metaproperty fields related to sync that were enabled during set up.
  5. Click Save.

How to Edit Integration

You can edit the configuration if you want to disable the integration, update your settings, sync (or no longer sync) assets, or edit your Vimeo credentials.

  1. Navigate to Settings > Advanced settings > Portal settings.
  2. Click Active Integrations in the left sidebar, then Edit in the section of the connection that you would like to update.
  3. Make your changes, then click Save.
