Default Trouble getting Vimeo videos to embed

Having a video show up in your post and play, instead of just a link to it, is easy with YouTube. You just need the embedded ID code of that video and post it here like this...

[*youtube]embedded video ID[/youtube] Astrix added, ignore that. Keeps the forum engine opening a big white screen.

YouTube videos play immediately in the post. However, getting Vimeo videos to open and play like that doesn't work. Vimeo must not be as user friendly as YouTube. Still, I'm finding it a challenge to get a Vimeo video to open in a post immediately, linking to Vimeo's player. I've Googled possible http language to try and make it do so. No luck so far. If you care to give it a try, have at it. I'd appreciate it. Some say you have to include the size parameters of the video in your http language in order to have Vimeo open it here on this forum and play immediately, not just a link. I tried some suggestions, none have worked so far. Not that it's that important. I played with it for an hour trying. I've copied the embedded code and URL of the video off Vimeo...I just don't know what to do with it, lol.

If you want to give it a try, just randomly choose any Vimeo video and see if you can get it to open up directly here. There has to be a way, using the correct http language. It sort of got me challenged to do so today. Nevermind. Reply with the solution if you're as bored as I am.

I'm sure it's on the "to do" list...

What's a vimeo?

Why did you edit your post?

What did it say before the edit?

You spent an hour and eighteen minutes composing and editing that?

I posted regarding embedding a video into a forum. Maybe try resolving the issue instead of wasting bandwidth? Oh, you have better things to do than lurking and judging whether a post is worthy?
