Embed the Vimeo videos and albums on your website // public and private video, custom poster images and lightbox

vimeo_api extension for Contao Open Source CMS

This extension allows you to embed the Vimeo videos and albums on your website. It supports displaying both public and private videos, using custom poster images, viewing video in the lightbox or in place. The module supports responsive images feature which is implemented by default in Contao.

Requirements

The only requirement is to have jQuery enabled on the page. If you want to also use the lightbox feature, please enable the j_colorbox template in the page layout settings.

Configuration

In order to make it work, you have to create the Vimeo app at https://developer.vimeo.com/apps/ and generate the personal access token. Then, in the Contao settings enter the following data:
  1. Client ID (in Vimeo: Client Identifier)
  2. Client secret (in Vimeo: Client Secrets)
  3. Access token (in Vimeo: Personal access token)
Afterwards you can start creating the "Vimeo video" content elements. If something does not work, be sure to check the system logs.

Clearing Vimeo cache

By default the extension caches video data and images fetched from Vimeo API to improve the overall performance. In case you need to clear the cache, go to the Maintenance module or the user profile page and purge the Vimeo cache.

Displaying private videos

To display the Vimeo private videos, make sure that your access token has private scope enabled. You may also need to refine the settings of the video itself, allowing it to be displayed on desired websites.

Upgrade from 1.x to 2.x
