AccessAlly Pro can be used to track progress on videos hosted with Vimeo (that are embedded on your site).
However, please be aware that Vimeo only guarantees unlimited bandwidth for viewers when viewed with the Vimeo player.
When you embed a Vimeo video on your website, Vimeo retains the right to charge for excessive bandwidth for plays occurring through third-party players and applications, as well as when you monetize Vimeo-hosted videos using a third party tool (like AccessAlly).
If you have questions or run into bandwidth issues, please review the Vimeo Terms of Service and reach out to the Vimeo team directly.
How to Add a Vimeo Video to the Media Player
To add a Vimeo video to the media player, open the video in Vimeo and locate the unique string in the URL:
Next, open the Media area in ProgressAlly settings, add a new media, and select the Vimeo option. Here you will add the unique string.
Why is my Vimeo video not showing up?
Is your video set to unlisted? To embed Vimeo videos marked as unlisted, you will need to add an extra “?h=12356” portion to the video ID. This represents the second part of the Vimeo URL after the slash.
So as an example, if a video has a privacy hash of ‘h=9ea73a6a07’, then the link of the videos will look like this: https://vimeo.com/123456789/9ea73a6a07
Once added here, you can use the ProgressAlly shortcode adder to embed the video on a page, or continue onto something more advanced like adding video bookmarks.
