Extracting ID from Vimeo URL using JavaScript

Hello, I'm using this code to extract the ID from a Vimeo URL:

vimeo_id = message.split(/video\/|http:\/\/vimeo\.com\//)[1].split(/[?&]/)[0];

Open in new window

But this code doesn't work when there's https instead of http. How can I make it work with https too? I prefer to keep the split instead of using a regexp if possible.

And how does this code work? Can you explain it?

Thanks.
