Playing Vimeo Videos in Storyline (autoplay and seekbar)

Jan 30, 2023

Hello All,

I am trying to embed Vimeo videos into my Storyline file using the embed link provided by Vimeo. So far, the video does play from the published output. However, I have to use the Vimeo playback controls to start/pause the video.

I'd like to be able to both autoplay the video when the page loads, and play/pause the video using Storyline's seekbar, just as if the video was directly inserted into Storyline, as opposed to using the Vimeo playback controls.

This is mostly because I want to time my storyline animations with the video, but that only works if the seekbar can actually control the playback of the Vimeo embedded video.

Can this be done?

for autoplay add "?autoplay=1" to the link on import "Video from Website"

<iframe src="" width="640" height="360" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen allow="autoplay" ></iframe>

but you cannot control the vimeo video with the storyline navigation seekbar

UPDATE: storyline trigger for "Video from Website" are not supported
