How to embed a Vimeo video

Following a tip in Comments to a WP’s support page on how to embed a Vimeo video, here’s a demo:

The above video was embedded using this shortcode (no space after [ and before ] ):

[ vimeo http://www.vimeo.com/7243598 ]

How to resize

The above video can be resized from the standard 400×300 to a larger 600×450 by inserting the width and height parameters in the shortcode:

[ vimeo http://www.vimeo.com/7243598 w=600&h=450 ]

This is the resized video:

Hmmm, that was easy too.

Thanks T3CK for the tip. And thanks Ileane for the prompt.

More resizing and formatting

Using a DIV tag and CSS, you can easily position a smaller video (left or right) and wrap text around it.

Here is a sample of the above video resized to 300×225 and text-wrapped:

Blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah.

Blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah.

Blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah.

Blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah.

    This is another great tip. VImeo videos are better quality than YouTube. You found the cutest video to use as an example too! Thanks for the shout out.
