There are a ton of websites that allow you to paste the link and will allow you to download them in numerous formats. Here is one such site:

That one didn't work, said it couldn't download the video I wanted at https://vimeo.com/63603381

Plus, I don't want the video; I want just the audio from the video.

In Windows, when you play a video, you can record the sound from your computer and save it as an audio file. The 'how' depends on the version of Windows you are using...

Try Google for a small tool called mp3mymp3recorder, it's free.
There is various methods like Audacity is another.
I also use a small FM mp3 player plugged into my cigarette lighter in the car, add my audio to a usb stick plug that in to the mp3 player and plays through my car speakers

I don't want to play the video so I can record the audio.  I don't have time to play the videos.  I want to extract the audio without playing the video, so I can load a smaller file on my iPod or iPhone.

Is that possible on Windows or Mac?  I'd rather have a Mac solution.

Thanks!

I don't think that you can extract the audio from a video clip unless you play it at least once.

Yes, of course you want to listen to the soundtrack of the video on your iPod. I understand that.

My understanding of the question is HOW to extract the audio from the video file BEFORE loading the file to your iPod.

Perhaps I have missed the whole point of your question. I apologize for not being able to help tou further.

Maybe what I need to ask for is how to convert a video file at vimeo to an audio file I can listen to on my iPod.  My iPod doesn't have room for video files & I want to listen while driving.

You cannot convert video files directly on your iPod. But you can rip the audio track from a video file using iTunes on a Mac: Use iTunes to rip audio from videos

You can only rip the audio from the vimeo video using iTunes when those videos are in the iTunes Library.
Your choices are limited with downloading them,  if you have not already create a free account and they provide the a link
There is a Vimeo downloader that includes an option to convert them for iPad, iPhone,Apple see Step 3: Convert Vimeo videos (optional) at the URL I provided.
So first>
1. Register a basic Vimeo account and then confirm it.
2. Go to the Vimeo site and find the title of the video you want to download.
Just click it to navigate the video page.
3. You will find the download link of the videos on the right sidebar. Now, log in to your Vimeo basic free account to download vimeo videos by clicking the download link.
and convert it to the suitable format
