Vimeo is the first video – sharing site that provides videos with high resolution and quality. Thanks to its outstanding features, Vimeo attracts more than 100 million visitors per month and more than 22 million registered users. To help you understand more about its usage, in this article, we’ll give you guidance on how to repeat and control speed videos on Vimeo.
1. Guide to repeat or loop a video
With many high-quality videos in Vimeo, you may meet a bunch of favorite videos here. And it’s certain when you want to loop or repeat them all over again. To do this, you do the following steps:
Step 1: Choose the video you like then click the “Share” button.
Step 2: In windows that opens, choose “Show options“.
Step 3: Once you click “Share options“, choose “Loop this video“
Step 4: Notice the “Embed link“, if it appears “loop=1” then you’re on the right track. Copy the embed link.
For example, when you only choose “Loop this video” and “Show text link underneath this video” then the embed link will be like this:
<iframe src=”https://player.vimeo.com/video/117669654?loop=1&color=ead713&portrait=0″ width=”640″ height=”360″ frameborder=”0″ allow=”autoplay; fullscreen” allowfullscreen></iframe>
