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"

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