Any chance of adding Vimeo?

Postby Lil » Mon Apr 06, 2015 3:22 pm

I tried embedding a Vimeo video, but it doesn't work the way it does for Youtube.

Since Vimeo is getting more popular these days, is there any chance that the forum will support it in the future?

Sadly we run this forum on a very old server that is already experiencing difficulties so its unlikely that out tech wizard will be able to. Peter will see your request and judge it for himself. Sorry.
Coincidentally I haven't come across Vimeo before. I'll look out for it now.

Hi both,

Apologies for the late response, I never noticed this topic. (Please do drop me a PM if there's any uncertainty about new features!)

This is actually quite easy to accomplish - so I've just added Vimeo support.

Example: To embed a video like https://vimeo.com/28618663, you would simply use this code:

Code: Select all

[Vimeo]28618663[/Vimeo]


Which results in this:


I've also added a button on the post editor, which explains how to use it when you hover over it. Hope that helps!

I've also updated the YouTube embed code to the latest version.

Example:

For https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DeumyOzKqgI use:

Code: Select all

[YouTube]DeumyOzKqgI[/YouTube]
