How to create Vimeo personal access token
On August 9th, 2016, Vimeo has enacted strict rate limits for API access. If you go over your rate limit in any 15 minute window, the app will now be temporarily blocked for ~2 hours from using the API.
As of this writing, the default rate limit is 250 requests per 15 minute rolling window, roughly 1 request allowed every 3.6 seconds.
(Vimeo developers have already stated above may change at any time)
This video shows you how to create your own personal access token so your Vimeo app rate limit is not shared with anyone else.
