Vimeo video playing?

Post by thatkeith » 07 Dec 2011, 08:32

I've looked at the 'Vimeo and YouTube' thread but it didn't help - or at least I couldn't get any joy from what it covered. Perhaps it is a bit old now?
Anyway, how can I play a video that's hosted on Vimeo.com in an Interactive QXP layout? I can get the embed code and this (meaning the stripped-down URL from Vimeo's full embed code) works well in App Studio (iPad) work, but I need to recreate an iPad layout in a more generally web-accessible form.
Any suggestions?

For those who might be interested, my 'solution' was to give up and build the layouts in regular HTML. Not only is it possible to play Vimeo embedded in a layout, scrolling text looks much more elegant. Flash isn't so well regarded these days anyway, so no sleep lost - although I'd still like to know the Interactive Designer solution.
I hope there's an Interactive Designer-like way to create rich HTML5 output from QXP sometime in the future! :-)

I didn't! I rebuilt it all in HTML. That also meant I got much more elegant-looking scrolling text fields. There are issues I still have, but I'm definitely happier doing it like this: http://www.thanemagazine.com/issues-web/01/
Flash is leaving me cold more and more these days.
