Has anyone used the vimeo hosting site to embed their video into this forum?
I'm trying to insert a video so that the user simply clicks to play the video on this forum instead of clicking a link to view the video on the vimeo hosting site.
Thanks

I have been trying to help Velocoupe however this problem has me stumped ?

Hi Paul,
Hopefully a video of the tilting seat bottom will be viewable <iframe title="vimeo-player" src="https://player.vimeo.com/video/665881373?h=f6376e989d" width="640" height="360" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
All I can see from my end is a coded jumble of words and numbers.
Cheers Velocoupe

He sent me this which is what happened when he tried with the Media insert er - I extracted this https://player.vimeo.com/video/665881373?h=f6376e989d which displays fine.

When I tried it in the insert-er I got this

Oops! We ran into some problems.
The specified URL cannot be embedded as media.

So I suggested he asked about some else may us Vimeo or can see some think obviously wrong ' that won't be me as I am having a very dark week and can barely function a UTI is no fun.

Don't use the player just the address in the bar ie for this it's "h ttps://vimeo.com/665881373" without the quotations and the space between the h and t

I have no vimeo account so it asks me to log in when I click on the link from the search function
