There are 2 shortcodes implemented with the plugin: one for single video embed and another one for playlist embed. Please note that in order for the shortcodes to display the video embed, you will need the post ID of the video imported using the plugin, not the video ID from Vimeo.

Single video embed shortcode

To embed a single video post imported by WordPress Vimeo video plugin Vimeotheque into any other post type registered in WordPress you can use the visual interface implemented in Vimeotheque, which is available for both the classic editor as for the newly introduced Gutenberg editor.

  • volume: playback volume; integer between 0 (mute) and 100 (max);
  • width: width in pixels of the video;
  • aspect_ratio: aspect ratio of the video; can be: 4×3, 16×9 or 2.35X1;
  • autoplay: autoplay video on page load; can be 0 (no autoplay) or 1 (autoplay video);
  • loop: the video will play again when it reaches the end (1).

Playlist embed shortcode

In addition to single video embeds, the shortcode visual interface implemented in WordPress Vimeo video plugin Vimeotheque allows you to insert video playlists into any post type.
