Vimeo Videos on Roku Channel

We have a bunch of videos on Vimeo to which we've been granted permission to play in our Roku channel. These videos are spread across a number of different user accounts, and are not all managed directly by myself.

Question: Is it possible to stream these Vimeo videos to the Roku?

So far, everything that I've read seems to indicate that Vimeo doesn't allow direct access to MP4's or to HLS (unless you own the video and have a PRO account).

Anyone have experience with this, or can tell me if it's possible?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Vimeo Videos on Roku Channel

You're probably best asking Vimeo, but I believe you're correct that you'd need a PRO account. After all, you'd be using Vimeo's servers and bandwidth, so they're entitled to some compensation.
