    here’s the way to put vimeo videos in your site…

    [vimeo link location]

    sample:

    [vimeo http://www.vimeo.com/27271505%5D

    that’s it… hope it helps…

    Hello and thank you!

    I followed the directions carefully and even analyzed another video I put on another blog and everything matches – yet nothing. Here’s the video link information.

    https://vimeo.com/45770468

    What’s weird is the “s” on http. I’ve never seen that before.

    Just to be sure I’m not making an amateur mistake – I put the bracketed link directly on the page – right? Or do I insert it through an interface or dialog box?

    I am a Vimeo Pro user and know enough to adjust my privacy settings in order to allow its placement in the blog. The video has been uploaded for more than 24 hours so it can’t be some kind of server issue.

    I even posted another video and it worked fine. So perhaps the issue is the video itself and that weird “s” on http.

    Well never mind.

    I just plug in the link without the strange “s” on http and for some unknown reason it worked. But I KNOW I tried without the “s” prior to this.

    Thank you for your time.

    Had the same problem. Took out the “s”. Thank you marriv53.

    Thanks, marriv53! Taking out the “s” worked. I’d spent an hour looking for the solution. WP needs to add this to their Vimeo instructions because they don’t work without it.

    The strange “s” is a secure link.
