Overview

This page provides the details on how to embed our player on an external site. There are two possible embed methods, the Universal Player and Flash Player.

Universal Player

The Universal Embed Code allows you to embed our player in a way that will work on many different devices. We will automatically choose the correct player based on the user's device.

Note: if your site will contain a Universal Player embed, but won't show it right away, it's best to not to include the embed code until the video is ready to be displayed. There are bugs in some browsers that prevent the proper initialization of the player if it is initially hidden.

Embed Code

Here's what the embed code for the Universal Player looks like:

<iframe src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/VIDEO_ID" width="WIDTH" height="HEIGHT" frameborder="0"></iframe>

Parameters

Here is a list of all the parameters that can be used with the Universal Player. They should be added as query parameters to the src of the iframe.

Note: if the owner of a video is a Plus member, some of these settings may be overridden by their preferences.

title
Show the byline on the video. Defaults to 1.
byline
Show the title on the video. Defaults to 1.
portrait
Show the user's portrait on the video. Defaults to 1.
color
Specify the color of the video controls. Defaults to 00adef.
autoplay
Play the video automatically on load. Defaults to 0.
loop
Play the video again when it reaches the end. Defaults to 0.
api
Set to 1 to enable the Javascript API.
player_id
A unique id for the player that will be passed back with all API responses.

Flash Player (Moogaloop)

Embed Code

Here's what the embed code for the Flash Player looks like:

<object width="WIDTH" height="HEIGHT">
    <param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" />
    <param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" />
    <param name="movie" value="http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=VIDEO_ID&amp;server=vimeo.com&amp;color=00adef&amp;fullscreen=1" />
    <embed src="http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=VIDEO_ID&amp;server=vimeo.com&amp;color=00adef&amp;fullscreen=1"
        type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always" width="WIDTH" height="HEIGHT"></embed>
</object>

If you'd like to substitute your own Flash embed code, this is the address of the Flash Player for website embedding:

http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf

See the ActionScript 3 API page for info on how to embed the Flash Player inside a Flash project.
