It’s even got built in responsive features, so you don’t have to worry about the size of your videos! Read below to discover more about the Vimeo Element!
How To Use The Vimeo Element
Adding a Vimeo video to your content couldn’t be easier with the Vimeo Element. To start, simply add the element to your desired column.
Now you have the options window open. The first and most important step is to place the Vimeo video ID into the Video ID field. This is the the end section of the url; for example the Video ID for https://vimeo.com/75230326 is 75230326.
In the Alignment field, you can choose the alignment of the video in the column you are placing it in. The dimensions of the video are next. This is in pixels, but you just enter a number. Vimeo videos do not force an aspect ratio, however the most common one is 16:9. When entering the dimensions with this element, the only really important one is the width. The video will display at its native aspect ratio.
There are a couple more options you can select. One is Autoplay, which by default is set to No, as it’s generally not considered good Netiquette for videos to autoplay, and there is an option for additional API parameters. The most common of these is &rel=0, which will disable related videos at the end of the video playing. And with Avada 7.4, we introduced a Video Facade option, to help with page speed.
