Inserting Vimeo into slide

Hi There

I am trying to insert Video from Website - i.e. a Vimeo, into a slide and have read through the other discussions without any success. (Articulate Storyline2)

I insert the copied and pasted a  vimeo   e.g. and I get a message "that this video cannot be inserted from this code.  verify the code". But this is the only code I can find and it plays perfectly if I copy and paste it into the search bar.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Many thanks

Don't use the address that is in your browser address bar.

You have to take the address from the Embed link.

Click the share button, and copy the embed address. You don't need the whole thing, just the "https://..." part

I couldn't select just the URL from their window, so I copied it all and pasted it into a word document. Then I could copy just that URL.

Hope that helps!

You need the embed link as it is a different hyperlink.o on

On vimeo choose the video you wish to embed. Select share then copy the link from inside embed code and paste it into a web object in storyline.

It will look something like this:

<iframe src="" width="640" height="360" frameborder="0" webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen allowfullscreen></iframe>

you just need the section.
