Vimeo video embedding

    I've been trying (like alot of other people, it seems) to embed a Vimeo video on my new blog with no success. I've followed the instructions here:

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/videos/vimeo/

    Absolutely no success. I've tried multiple variations including using the media button, inputting the embed code, multiple attempts at the above instructions and have come up with absolutely nothing. The best I can get is a link to the video or just the text of the link. I have found quite a few people with this problem lately but no real answers as to the issue. I've also made sure that the video is public, can be embedded, and that all rights to embed are allowed.

    If anyone has any help on this I would really appreciate it!

    The blog I need help with is filmandstoryweddings.wordpress.com.

  2. I'll mark this for staff to look at, in the meantime another volunteer might have some ideas.

  3. Hey there,

    Can you provide the link to the Vimeo video you're trying to embed?

    Thank you so much for the responses. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    The video I'm trying to embed is at https://Vimeo.com/47045545.

    Thanks again!

  5. Hey there,

    I'm able to embed the video by simply copying and pasting the URL into my blog post, like so:

    This is a test post
    http://vimeo.com/47045545

    Try removing the "s" from the link (so it's prefixed only by http://, like in my example, not https://) then try again. If that works, please let me know, and I'll make sure that we fix this :)

    Best,
    P.

    Thanks for the help. I finally got it to work with your advice. It only works through the "post a video" button. I still can't do it the way that you did by copying and pasting the URL into the blog post. I really don't know why.

    It is up and running though. The "s" was coming from me logging into my account on Vimeo. Never thought to try it as an external URL. Thanks for all the help!
