Vimeo Business, PRO, and Plus membership gives you complete control over every aspect of the embedded video player.
There are two ways to edit the embed settings for your videos. You can either edit the embedded setting for an individual video on the Embed tab of its video settings or you can create Embed presets in your Account settings and then apply it to multiple videos.
Any time you change the custom embed options for a particular video, that video will automatically update on sites where it has already been embedded. Remember, these changes will only be reflected when your video is embedded on another web page, not on Vimeo.com.
What do you want to show to your viewers before your video starts playing? You have the choice to show or hide your portrait, title, and/or byline when the embedded video first loads.
Colors and buttons
Enter a hex color code to choose the exact color you want for the text and play bar. Select or deselect the check boxes to choose which of the following elements you want to appear in the embedded player: like button, Watch Later button, share button, embed button, fullscreen button, play bar, volume control, Vimeo logo.
What do you want to display when your video ends? Choose to display one of these elements:
- Videos: Showcase the latest 3 videos from your Videos, Likes, Channels, Groups, or Albums.*
- Specific videos: Select any 3 videos.*
- A link: Direct your viewers to another site.
- Nothing: The last frame of your video will display.
- Beginning: Display your radical thumbnail image.
- Text: Write a message! Basic HTML is totally allowed.
* For PRO members with Private Mode activated, these options are not available.
Vimeo Business and PRO members have the option to add their company logo to the embedded player (Plus members may not use Vimeo for commercial purposes). To upload a logo, go to the Video tab in your Account Settings, select the Player Logo tab, and then click the “Upload new image” link. We recommend using transparent 100×100 PNG files for best results.
After the logo finishes uploading, click the Videos tab and choose the video you want to add your logo to. Then, in the Embed tab of your video settings, check the box next to "Use a custom logo" and click on the logo you want to use. Make sure it becomes highlighted with a blue box, then click Save Changes.
With domain-level privacy, you can specify the websites that are permitted to embed your video. Any sites that are not on your list will receive an error message when they attempt to embed it. Take that, unauthorized sites!
To set it up domain-level privacy, head to video page and click Settings below the video player. From there, click over to the Privacy tab. In the “Where can this video be embedded?” section, select “Only on sites I choose,” then add the domain names for the sites where you'd like your video to be embedded.
To easily apply the same custom embed settings to multiple videos, you can create an embed preset under the Video tab in your Account settings. Click +Add new preset, name it, make your customization choices, and hit the Save button (you have the option to apply your new preset to all your videos by checking the box next to "Also apply to all existing videos").
You can apply your new preset to an individual video by heading to its video page and clicking the Settings button below the player. On the Embed tab, select the desired preset from the dropdown below the preview of your embedded player, then hit the Save button.
Small embedded players
If your embedded video is less than 375px wide, some of the embed elements will be hidden.
- Mini Mode is activated if the player is smaller than 375px wide. In Mini Mode, the portrait, volume slider, Vimeo logo, and custom outros are hidden.
- Tiny Mode is activated if the player is smaller than 300px wide or 170px tall. In Tiny Mode, the portrait, title, control bar, Vimeo logo, Like / Watch Later / Share buttons, and custom outros are hidden.
- PRO Members: If you’re using a custom logo in the player, the criteria for Mini Mode and Tiny Mode are a bit different. Mini mode is activated when the player is smaller than 450px wide. Tiny mode is activated if the player is smaller than 338px or 190px tall.
Vimeo’s embed and privacy settings only apply to the embedded Vimeo player. If you’re a Vimeo Business or PRO member using a third-party player links, Vimeo’s embed customizations will not apply. However, the third-party player might support its own set of customizations — check out their support documentation for more info.
