Vimeo videos blocked from embedding

Recommended Posts


I'm currently building a portfolio website.

I have some commercial projects that I've uploaded to Vimeo but want to remain hidden on Vimeo, and only available for viewing on my website.

I have a Vimeo Plus account and as far as I can see Vimeo advertises this as a use of their service.

The issue I have is that when I link the URL squarespace says that it can't read the URL code.

I don't have this issue with videos that are open for public viewing on Vimeo.

Is this a Squarespace setting or a Vimeo setting that I'm getting wrong??

Thanks Derrick

I tried that in Vimeo with no luck.

The solution in the end was to completely remove the asset and start over. 

I think it may have been to do with copying a previous page then changing the vimeo URL that was causing some kind of issue.
