Hi there,
I am just wondering if anyone knows when embedding a vimeo player into a site, can you specify dimensions using percentages, or only exact sizes.
I would really appreciate someones experience on this subject.
Thanks,
A

Hello,

Vimeo provides you following code for embedding video on your site.
 
<iframe src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/66624261?byline=0&amp;badge=0" width="500" height="281" frameborder="0" webkitAllowFullScreen mozallowfullscreen allowFullScreen></iframe> <p><a href="http://vimeo.com/66624261">Tokyo Dreams</a> from <a href="http://vimeo.com/roguefilms">Rogue</a> on <a href="http://vimeo.com">Vimeo</a>.</p>

Open in new window


To change the dimensions you will have to mention the width and height i.e. width="500" height="281"

Well, vimeo embed code is also in iframe, so the experts are indirectly telling you a way how to set the width of vimeo in percentage....

Wouldn't it depend on the actual video scale height width of the video your wanting to embed? What is the source.
