Playing a Vimeo video

This page shows you how to play a youtube video using afterglow.

If you want to play a video which is hosted on Vimeo, you should use the data-vimeo-id parameter. This example shows you how the result would look like.

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>afterglow player</title>
    <script src="//"></script>
    <video class="afterglow" id="myvideo" width="960" height="540" data-vimeo-id="233970493"></video>

Using this basic lightbox setup, the player would look like this:


Please be aware, that regular Vimeo videos cannot use any other player ui than the one provided by Vimeo. This is a premium feature, which you have to pay for. So the afterglow ui won't tune in for Vimeo videos.
