Vimeo Layer

IN THIS ARTICLE

You can find the Vimeo layer in the Slide Editor.

You can use this layer to place a Vimeo video to your slide.

Content

General

Vimeo URL or Video ID

The link to your Vimeo video.

Cover image

You can choose an image to cover your Vimeo video, and if you click on it, it will disappear, and the video will start to play.

Aspect Ratio

You can select the aspect ratio of your video for better responsive behavior. This is especially useful when you're working in Default editing mode.

  • 16:9 The video will be displayed with 16:9 aspect ratio
  • 16:10 The video will be displayed with 16:10 aspect ratio
  • 4:3 The video will be displayed with 4:3 aspect ratio
  • Custom: 3.4.1.8 You can set a custom aspect ratio for your video to ensure it displays correctly.
  • Fill layer height: The video will fill the height of the layer.

Video Settings

Autoplay

If you turn this on, your video will start playing when you go to its slide, and it will stop when you go to another.

⚠️ Warning: Browsers have severe restrictions against autoplaying videos. Learn the details.
When Ended
  • Do nothing: No action will be done after the video finishes.
  • Go to next slide: The slider will switch to the next slide when the video finishes.
⚠️ Warning: This option is only visible when the Loop is disabled!
Start Time

The time in seconds where the video starts from.

Volume

The volume of your video.

Pause on Scroll

You can set the video's behavior on scroll.

  • Never The video will not be paused regardless of the slider's visibility
  • When partly visible The video will be paused when at least 1px of it is not visible. Scrolling back to the video will continue the play.
  • When not visible The video will be paused when none of it is visible. Scrolling back to the video will continue the play.
Loop Pro

With this option you can make your video start over when it's done.

Private Video

If you are using a private video, in the admin area you will get a false error notification, that the video is not accessible. You can ignore that message, because the video will still work or just turn this option on and it will turn off the error notification. So this option doesn't really do anything to your video, it just turns off the error notification in the admin area.

Restart on Slide Change

If it's turned off, and you switch away from your video, it will only pause, but if you turn this on, it will reset the video to 0 sec.

Users Byline

Common issues

1
Vimeo video doesn't work

The Vimeo layer can only play public videos, so if you insert a link to a private video, that cannot be used inside our slider! The whole link, what you should insert into a Vimeo layer should look like this: https://vimeo.com/196277011, starting with https://vimeo.com/ and ending with the id of the video. If you go to it's page, you see the same Vimeo website layout, what you see on this example's link.
