Vimeo Embed

The Vimeo Embed Block allows you to easily integrate Vimeo videos into your content. This block streamlines the process of embedding videos, enabling you to enhance your site with high-quality multimedia content from Vimeo.

💡 Note

You don’t need a Vimeo account to get started. However, not all Vimeo videos are available for embedding. If you use a URL that can’t be embedded, the block will display the message “Sorry, this content could not be embedded.” You will have two options. Try again with a different URL or convert it to a link.

How to embed a Vimeo video

  • Find the video you want on Vimeo.com and copy the URL from the browser bar.
  • Click the ‘+’ button in the editor and select ‘Vimeo’, or simply type /vimeo and press enter.

Once the block is added, paste the Vimeo URL into the provided field and click the ‘Embed’ button to integrate the video into your site.

Block toolbar

Each block has its own set of tools for customization. Here’s what you’ll find in the Vimeo embed block toolbar.

Transform to

The ‘Transform to’ button lets you change a Vimeo embed Block into other blocks like ‘Paragraph’, ‘Columns’ or ‘Group’. This feature allows you to seamlessly adjust your layout with a simple click, ensuring your content looks just the way you want.

Drag & Move

Use the six-dot icon to drag your block, or the up and down arrow buttons let you move a block one position higher or lower.

Alignment

The ‘Alignment’ tool lets you adjust the width of your Vimeo video. Simply click the icon, and a menu will appear with options. You can set your Vimeo video to no alignment, max 1200px wide, or full width. This feature helps you customize your Embed to look exactly how you want with ease. Additionally, you can align your Embed to the left, center, or right.

  • No alignment: No specific alignment applied.
