Easy peasy, out of the box

Embed with iFrame

The easiest way to add a Vimeo Video to your website is by adding the iFrame embed code to a HTML Component. If you don't have an HTML component available, please ask your implementation administrator. They probably removed permissions.

Code your own custom component

Embed code through custom component

Another option that provides a bit more security is the use of a custom component for video integrations. In this case, you create a custom component that uses an ID from your video platform. This ID selects the specific embed markup. This is particularly useful if you choose to use a custom video player instead of the standard embed code. It is also helpful if you want to integrate privacy solutions before enabling iframes to 3rd-party vendors like Vimeo.
