Embedding Vimeo videos

In progress Embedding Vimeo videos

Post by drdavid on July 2nd 2016, 9:15 pm

First post so a Big Hi to all!

Question: I would like to embed Vimeo videos in our Forumotion forum here:
http://simhaven.englishboards.com/

I've searched this Help forum and found this HTML script:

Code:
 <iframe src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/VIDEO NUMBER HERE" width="500" height="281" frameborder="0" webkitAllowFullScreen mozallowfullscreen allowFullScreen></iframe>

This doesn't seem to work - I've tried with my own and other Vimeo videos (inserting the Vimeo in the above script).

Sorry to ask this question again but I'd be grateful if you could say whether Vimeo is embeddable or not so that I can move on to other things.

Many thanks.

Cheers - Dai.

Have you tried just using the flash button in the editor?

Thanks SL - just tried inserting the Vimeo video url, as suggested, in the Flash button pop-up but all I get is a big, correctly sized blank!

Appreciate your reply.

Cheers - Dai. Cool

Are you pressing the share button on the video on Vimeo to get the share code?

If I copy the contents of the Vimeo Share option do I insert this in the Flash button pop-uplike this?

Code:
[flash(500,500)]<iframe src="https://player.vimeo.com/video/170919473" width="640" height="360" frameborder="0" webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen allowfullscreen></iframe> <p><a href="https://vimeo.com/170919473">How to make Water Masks in FS Earth Tiles photo scenery.</a> from <a href="https://vimeo.com/user3235196">Dai</a> on <a href="https://vimeo.com">Vimeo</a>.</p>[/flash]

If I do, there is still a blank space.

Clearly I'm missing something! Thanks again for your help.

Cheers - Dai. Cool

vimeo from the Share button gives you an iframe code


you just have to copy and paste into your forum
Remember to see html in your forum must have it activated

Thanks jucarese.
I can confirm that I have enabled HTML in my Profile.
I see the iframe insert works for you. Here's your Vimeo url:
https://vimeo.com/channels/mercedesbenz/169687255
I've been to the page and extracted the embedding code:
Code:
<iframe src="https://player.vimeo.com/video/169687255" width="640" height="360" frameborder="0" webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen allowfullscreen></iframe> <p><a href="https://vimeo.com/169687255">BLINK - a BASE Jumping Flick - Mercedes-Benz Original</a> from <a href="https://vimeo.com/mercedesbenz">Mercedes-Benz</a> on <a href="https://vimeo.com">Vimeo</a>.</p>
I will now embed the same HTML code in this post:
<iframe src="https://player.vimeo.com/video/169687255" width="640" height="360" frameborder="0" webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen allowfullscreen></iframe> <p><a href="https://vimeo.com/169687255">BLINK - a BASE Jumping Flick - Mercedes-Benz Original</a> from <a href="https://vimeo.com/mercedesbenz">Mercedes-Benz</a> on <a href="https://vimeo.com">Vimeo</a>.</p>
When I preview the post I simply get a display of the inserted HTML text.
I will post this and see if the live version (i.e. not the Preview) is any different...
Cheers - Dai.

EDIT: As you can see, the 'share' iframe insert from Vimeo does not produce the embedded video.
jucarese = would you be kind and post your actual iframe code for me to see where I am going wrong? Thanks.

Cheers again - Dai.

HTML is not activated on the support forum.

There is is two places you have to activate HTML for your forum.

AP > General > Messages & E-Mails > Configuration
Allow HTML:  Yes

Profile > Preferences
Each member will have to set this themselves.

P.S. The post before yours does not contain the video, but an image of the video.

Thanks SL - that HTML isn't activated on the support forum explains my difficulty.
I will address the HTML activation on our site and see if it resolves the issue.
I'll come back with more questions - or report success...
Cheers - Dai. Cool

EDIT: Followed your instructions re admin panel - set forum HTML option = Yes. Confirmed my own Profile had HTML = Yes. Inserted Vimeo embed code and...

... IT WORKS!

Thank you - sorry to drag it out, but all's well that etc.

Cheers again - Dai. Cool
