View Full Version : Embed Vimeo Movies?

2010-08-04, 11:33 AM
Would it be possible for us to get a tag to be able to embed/link to Vimeo videos just like we do for Youtube? There's lots of great stuff on Vimeo that is just as good as anything on Youtube.

Shouldn't be hard to add. Any objections?

If it's something that won't be broken by upgrading vB (and I don't think it will), go for it. It's just another alias, isn't it?

I mean I can probably count on one hand when I've seen a vimeo link on these forums but I don't see the harm either.

Literally the only things I've ever watched on vimeo are things that got taken down from youtube, and then only a few times.

Added! Syntax is [ vimeo ]VIDEO_ID[/ vimeo]

Where VIDEO_ID is the string of numbers that come after http://vimeo.com/... in the URL, of course.


I agree that it's probably not going to see much use, but won't hurt either.

On a related note: How do you feel about current embedded video sizes? Both are currently at 480xWhatever. Do you think it would be useful to set it bigger? Would it interfere with mobile browsing? Worth it?

It would be nice if it could detect if the video was HD and increase the size, but still set it small if people are mobile browsing. But as I type this post I know this would cause you a coding migraine, lol.

If it isn't much trouble, would it be possible to add a similar tag to embed Giant Bomb videos (http://www.giantbomb.com/videos/)? It'd be nice to be able to link Quick Looks and Reviews occasionally.
