Embed Vimeo video in webhelp responsive

Post by ann.jensen » Fri May 25, 2018 12:32 pm

Hi,
I am trying to embed a video hosted on Vimeo into my WebHelp responsive content. I am using the embed link provided by Vimeo. The video settings in Vimeo allow full screen. When I watch the video in my webhelp responsive output I don't see any fullscreen link option. Is this something that should be pulled from Vimeo or provided via my DITA content?
Here is a link to the Vimeo advice
https://help.vimeo.com/hc/en-us/article ... the-player

Any feedback appreciated,
Regards,
Ann

Hi Ann,

And how does your DITA content look right now?
It should probably look like:

Code: Select all

<object
data="https://path/to/vimeo/video" outputclass="iframe">
<param name="allowfullscreen"/>
</object>
Also you can look at the generated HTML output for this particular DITA <object>, see if you spot anything.

Radu

Thanks Radu,
I had actually just discovered that I needed to manually add in

Code: Select all

 <param name="allowfullscreen"/>
It is playing with full-screen option,
Regards,
Ann

Hi Ann,

Great, we automatically add this parameter when using the "Insert Media" toolbar icon to refer to a YouTube video. Maybe we can do the same for Vimeo, I'll add an internal issue for this.

Need to manually add in the tags if they are not there added automatically

once the tags are in place, the video will work as you expect

Hi,

What tags do you mean? Could you give me a small example?
