New Tags: Vimeo and VimeoHD embedding

How can I embed Vimeo videos?

As more and more videos become available for viewing on Vimeo.com, the forum now supports the embedding of both Vimeo's HD and normal quality videos. As some users may not benefit from the enhanced quality of HD due to power or bandwidth limitations, everytime a video is embedded using the tags, a link to the standard definition video page is displayed underneath.

The new BBcodes are Vimeo and VimeoHD. As with the youtube BBcode you must supply the URL to the video page (not the embed code).
Note that not all videos will work with the HD tag as they may be either not available in that quality or the owner of the video has disabled HD embedding.

All you need to do is copy and paste the full url for the video, and ensure it is inside the relevant tags:

Normal Vimeo Videos:
Code:
Code: Select all
[Vimeo]VIDEOURL[/Vimeo]


Example code and embed:
Example code:
Code: Select all
[Vimeo]http://vimeo.com/1204884[/Vimeo]


Preview:



HD Vimeo Videos:
Code:
Code: Select all
[VimeoHD]VIDEOURL[/VimeoHD]


Example code and embed:
Example code:
Code: Select all
[VimeoHD]http://vimeo.com/3114617[/VimeoHD]


Preview:






Help! It's not working!

  • Did you get the video URL? (for example: http://vimeo.com/3114617)
  • Is it definitely an HD video? :)
  • Has the owner disabled embedding?

If you need any assistance, PM me or another moderator. :)

Feel free to try out the tags below. :)
