Using Video

Video can be placed in the masthead of a page or post or in the content area using either a plugin shortcode or the embed code provided by the video hosting service. A Vimeo Plugin is currently available on your site dashboard.  If you need a plugin for a different video service, please contact GSU Web services.

[vimeo clip_id=”38385718″ height=”169″ width=”300″]

Example Shortcode:

[[vimeo clip_id=”12345678″ height=”169″ width=”300″]] or [[vimeo clip_id=”12345678″ height=”” width=”600″]]

  1. Enter the [[vimeo clip_id=”XXXXXXX”]] short code into any post. clip_id is the number from the clip’s URL (e.g. vimeo.com/12345678)
  2. Optionally modify the clip’s appearance by specifying width or height, like so: [[vimeo clip_id=”XXXXXXX” width=”300″ height=”169″]]>
  3. Toggle byline, portrait and title like so: [[vimeo clip_id=”XXXXXXX” title=”1″ byline=”0″ portrait=”1″]]
  4. Toggle HTML5 vs. older object embedding method like so: [[vimeo clip_id=”XXXXXXX” html5=”0″]]
  5. Using empty values for either the width or height attributes will cause Lux Vimeo to calculate the proper dimension based on a 16:9 aspect ration.
