Vimeo Premium, Business, Pro, and Plus membership gives you more control over the embedded video player.
✦ Customization options
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 those 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.
✦ Player Preferences
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.
Note that there is currently no way to include the video download button on the embedded player; this is only accessible from the video page on Vimeo.com.
✦ 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.
✦ End screens
End screens (formerly known as outros) help you connect with your viewers after your video finishes playing by letting them know where to go next. You can add these via the Interaction tools tab, After video section. Learn more about how end screens can drive engagement and conversions.
✦ Player Logo
Vimeo Premium, Business and PRO members have the option to add their company logo to the embedded player. To upload a logo, go to the Videos tab in your Account Settings, select the Player Logo tab, and then click the “Upload new image” link. We recommend using transparent 200×200 PNG files for best results.
After the logo finishes uploading, go to the Embed tab of the video settings of the video you'd like to add the new logo to. Then, under the Customization section, toggle the "Display custom logo" option on, and click on the logo you want to use. Make sure it becomes highlighted with a blue box, then click "Save."
✦ Domain-level privacy
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 up domain-level privacy, head to your video page and click "Settings" below the video player. From there, click over to the General tab, Privacy section. In the “Where can this be embedded?” dropdown menu, select “Specific domains,” then add the domain names for the sites where you'd like your video to be embedded.
✦ Embed Presets
To easily apply the same custom embed settings to multiple videos, you can create an embed preset under the Videos 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, and Vimeo logo are hidden.
- Tiny Mode is activated if the player is smaller than 300px wide or 169px tall. In Tiny Mode, the portrait, title, control bar, Vimeo logo, Like / Watch Later / Share buttons, and end screens are hidden.
- If using a Custom Logo (PRO and above only): 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.
Important: If your webpage is using a responsive design, the embedded player may automatically adhere to a smaller size on mobile. Some end screens will not appear if the player is smaller than 300px wide or 169px tall.
✦ Third-party players
Vimeo’s embed and privacy settings only apply to the embedded Vimeo player. If you’re a Vimeo Business or PRO member using 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.
