    PMB is able to print the URL of embedded YouTube videos. Can you make it do the same for Vimeo? I’m pretty happy with how they show up now (once I realized I needed to tell the browser to print background images to get the video still image to show up), but it would be nice to be able to show the URL.

    While I’m on the subject, it seems like the PMB YouTube format is a little odd. I’d prefer the image be left justified instead of centered, and would like to turn off display of the little movie projector icon.

    Hi @pictureitsolved, yes I think adding better support for Vimeo would be good. (I hadn’t done it yet because no one had yet said they wanted it…) It won’t be a quick fix (might take a few weeks or months) but I’ve recorded a task to do it: https://github.com/mnelson4/printmyblog/issues/161
    I’ll try to send you some CSS to remove that camera and left-aligned image… stand by…

    To remove that camera icon and have the YouTube videos aligned to the left, do the following:

    1. Go to wp-admin on your website
    2. On the left, under “Appearance”, click “Customize”
    3. On the left, under Additional CSS” add the the following code:

    
    div.pmb-youtube-video-replacement-icon{
    display:none !important;
    }
    div.pmb-youtube-video-replacement-wrapper{
    text-align:left !important;
    }
    

    Let me know how that goes for you.
    I’m afraid the Vimeo videos will be quite a bit more coding work for me though and probably won’t be done immediately. The workaround for right now would be to add the CSS class pmb-screen-only onto them to hide them in printouts, and add bulleted list afterwards with the css class pmb-print-only with links to each video. The only catch with that is that that won’t work until the next release of Print My Blog (I have a version that someone else just tested that I’ll be releasing Monday.)

    Sorry it’s not a great situation with the Vimeo videos currently. But does what I’m saying make sense?

    ok I’ve updated the main version of Print My Blog (the one here on wordpress.org) to 2.9.8, which includes the fix to pmb-screen-only. So you can use that if you want to remove Vimeo videos from printouts.
    Again, sorry it’s not a great situation for Vimeo videos.

    I think I’m going to mark this as “resolved” for now. I do hope to add support for this but it will require more time than I have available right now, and there is a not-so-great workaround for now. Feel free to reopen if there’s more to be discussed.
