How to embed Vimeo clips into a Wordpress.com blog post

November 13, 2007

Vista busy cursor Vimeo, the on-line video hosting service, have promised that there will soon be an official WordPress tag to embed Vimeo clips in WordPress.com blogs, in much the same way we already can with youTube or Google videos.

They may or may not be referring to the VodPod facility which is already available in Beta. Create a new post and then, in edit mode, click on the Videos option in the blue bar below the word count.

Follow the “Post to WordPress button” link. This takes you to the page you need on the VodPod website. Click the “Firefox bookmarklet” option.

I installed the Firefox extension but the WordPress icon did not appear in the toolbar, maybe a clash with my chosen Firefox theme. So I dragged the “Post to WordPress” button to the bookmarks toolbar. That works fine.

You just go to the Vimeo page for your chosen clip and click on the Post to WordPress button. Then just follow the instructions. You do have to trust Vimeo with your WordPress username and password, but I can live with that.

The clip is embedded into a new post which you can then edit, or you can delete it having copied the embedding code into the post of your choice. Note that the embedding string contains parameters that control the height and width of the embedded video as displayed. You can just tweak those to suit your taste.
