    Re: Responsive Videos

    Please advise me, no matter what I do I am unable to get any Vimeo Videos to play, I have tried it with a YouTube URL and it worked perfectly fine, is there a problem?

    Thank you

    Hi Cill please give me the URL you are trying to use, and also paste here the shortcode that gets generated for it.

    Hi there

    This is the URL: https://vimeo.com/226947589/5664b2e892

    Shortcode: [somryv type=”vimeo” url=”226947589/5664b2e892″ size=”medium” align=”left”]

    Hope the above helps?

    Hi Cill, this plugin might not work for private Vimeo videos, I’d have to look into supporting that in more detail.

    Is this video going to be made public? If so when that happens it will get a proper Vimeo URL which will work with this plugin.

    Something like this:
    vimeo.com/videoID

    Whereas yours is currently formatted like so:
    vimeo.com/video/videoID

    Hi there

    Unfortunately, I use Vimeo because of the privacy, I have videos that are made for landing pages and squeeze pages, therefore, they can’t be made public.

    Do you have a Vimeo Plus, Pro or Business account? They allow you to embed your videos on a specific website.

    I might be able to use links for those accounts but I couldn’t test otherwise I’m afraid.

    I’m grateful that you brought this to my attention Cill, I’ll include it in the documentation for the next update.

    Sorry I couldn’t be of more help to you.

    Hi Rich

    Yes, I do have a + account but I wanted a player where I could have space for a description.

    Thank you again

    If you can set the video to work on your specific site following this page, it might work. When you’ve changed it post here the full video embed code from the share button so I can check it.

    Hi Rich

    Only just saw your message, I already use the setting where my video can only be used on my page, I also tried with your plugin before I sent the first message to you. Will try again.

    Ok well if your video privacy is set to allow embedding on a specific website, give me the entire embed code from the sharing and I’ll see if I can work private videos into the plugin that way.

    Hi there

    This is the entire embed code:

    <iframe src=”https://player.vimeo.com/video/227339653&#8243; width=”640″ height=”360″ frameborder=”0″ webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Thank you

    Ok try the shortcode generator using just 227339653, from that URL and see if that works.

    Hi

    We just have to accept that it doesn’t work properly with Vimeo, I already tried with the shortcode before I initially contacted you. I read everything first making sure that I did all that I could to make it work. This is clearly a technical issue that I cannot resolve.

    Thank you
