Vimeo is using akamai and can be cached as far as I understand.

There is always an ID out there in urls(not Vimeo specific if at all in 
Vimeo) but it's either encrypted or is inside the page that needs to be 
These are the two options I know about and I have seen couple times that 
there are something like a "cookie" url which can help to identify a 
common ID.

I don't remember if it was to you that I recommended Adblock plus and 
video search at firefox.

There was another software which I think is called "FreeRapid 
Downloader" and they have all bunch of plugins which written in java 
that helped me get started on couple things with video sites analytics.
The software doesn't work very well these days but it gives a lot of 
basics if you have the needed java skills(I am not pushing you to dive 
into it since it's not a simple task).

Adblock plus gives you many details on every page you browse into and 
have a nice filter option.
You can get into the filter and urls list using the "open blockable 
items" option in the Adblock plus firefox menu.

It' much simpler then plain firefox "inspect elements" or firebug but it 
is limited a bit.


* I have read people writing in forums something like "we are not spoon 
feeding got read the man pages" and I do not like the attitude!!
  - Also on this specific case there is not man pages or something 
similar and I encourage to ask.
