How Can I Find the Cover Image from Vimeo?

  1. View your video on Vimeo.  
  2. In the URL at the top you will see the video ID number.  This is the number that trails http://vimeo.com/somenumber
  3. Open Chrome or Firefox.  Safari doesn't support an XML reader anymore and will not display the results
  4. Use this URL and replace the video ID number with the number of your video: http://vimeo.com/api/v2/video/9696328.xml
  5. You will see the URLs to all of the thumbnails (different sizes) and also the support files.  You can also use this information to make sure that Vimeo is providing other services the correct information
