Vimeo embeds only work intermitently

    I’m seeing some really weird behaviors when embedding vimeo videos, I’ve tried what I feel like is every method possible but nothing works truly reliably. Does anyone else have this issue?

    What I’m seeing is when I embed them via shortcode, normal hyperlink, vimeo tag, or embed iframe, they all normally will work on initial load but then if click refresh or click on that videos post to load that specific page, it disappears. The code is still there in the source but I can’t see anything on screen?

    If I use the old vimeo embed code it will work flawlessly on a desktop but then I lose the ability for it to work on other devices.

    I’m running Windows and seeing this occur in ie, chrome, and Firefox.

    Anyone have any info or ideas on what might be happening? So frustrating to see it work once and then start failing.

    You can see my blog at (its just ski videos, nothing inappropriate). I’ve set up a few posts in different ways and I’m sure you’ll see the old embed work fine and then others only intermittently.
