If you are a Plus, PRO, or Business member, you can remove the play/pause button on your embedded background videos. To do this, add the following parameter to the end of the player URL in your embed code:
Example Embed Code
<iframe src="https://player.vimeo.com/video/76979871?background=1" width="500" height="281" frameborder="0" webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen allowfullscreen></iframe>
Adding this parameter will have the following effect:
- All player toggles and elements will be turned off (including the play/pause button!)
- The video will automatically loop.
- The video will be set to autoplay.
- The video will be muted.
Please note that using this new parameter will override any embed settings currently associated with the video. However, those embed settings are not changed. If the parameter is removed, the existing embed settings will take affect once more.
Important: The background parameter is not compatible with mobile devices or tablets. In these cases, the player will display a thumbnail instead.
