Viper's Video Quicktags
[resolved] Embedding Vimeo: Player does not show (11 posts)

    When adding the code [vimeo]http://www.vimeo.com/13758179[/vimeo] in my post its shows a empy white blok instead of the player.

    Example
    http://weblog.independer.nl/independer/tv-commercial-met-webcam-in-de-hoofdrol/

    If I call the direct link the video shows normally:
    http://www.vimeo.com/13758179

    The youtube player works fine.

    I have the code in my head.php:
    <?php wp_head(); ?>

    And also the latest flash version and JS is not disabled.

    Found the solution. Vimeo has changed his embedded code. Read more on:
    http://vimeo.com/blog:334

    The trick is to add before the </body> tag the next script:
    <script src="http://assets.vimeo.com/js/embedinator.min.js"></script>

    Now everything works fine again. Hope this new embed script will be used in an update from the plugin.

    Vimeo changed the embed code, so the plugin doesn't work anymore for vimeo files. I hope there will be a fix soon! :)

    Vimeo broke my embed method. v6.3.0 of my plugin fixes it. :)

    Bummer for users with older versions of WordPress that can't run the latest version of Viper's Video Quicktags. I added the embedinator js to a WP 2.7.1 site but it didn't help.

    My question to Alex M is: It says on the Vimeo blog that they are updating oEmbed with the new player code very soon. That's great and all but does that mean that this will make it in to WordPress too? Does WP have to be updated with a new oEmbed class? Do we have to wait until 3.0.2 to enjoy the new player?

    WordPress 2.7.1 is an insecure version of WordPress. You should upgrade ASAP as you are risking being hacked.

    The whole point of oEmbed is that the HTML is fetched off their servers. WordPress doesn't need updating. Infact they have already updated their oEmbed provider and embeds are being done via iframes.

    You are so right, Alex. All sites are now running 3.0.1. And the video is displaying fine again, yeah even on my iPad which is a big bonus. Exciting about oEmbed too, thanks for clearing that up!

    Hi sorry, to disturb.

    Does that mean that if I use the last VVQ version it will use Vimeo new player ?

    (sorry no Ipad/phone... to try).

    Thanks.

    Yes, my plugin now embeds Vimeo using their new embed method which uses Flash for most people but HTML5 for browsers that support it, such as Mobile Safari.
