The flow of the migration is mainly impacted by your account on Vimeo. For Vimeo PRO, Business and Premium Spotlightr will be able to access all of your files via the API integration. However for Vimeo Plus users we will only be able to access files which are set as public and can be embedded anywhere.

What to do if I am on Vimeo Plus?

You have to make sure that videos you want to migrate to Spotlightr are are not set to PRIVATE in Vimeo video settings. Log in to your Vimeo account and click on "My Videos".

Click on the small wrench to change privacy settings for the desired video.
Under "Privacy" tab change settings to "Anyone" and Save.

It is also important to set "Where can this video be embedded?" option to anywhere.
