1. Create an HTML panel for your Item.

2. Find the embed code for your video via the Share button on Vimeo’s website.

 

 

3. Paste the embed code into the HTML panel for your Item.

4. You will need to update the frame of the video to not display the default transparent background using the following method:

<iframe src="https://player.vimeo.com/video/368268711?transparent=0" width="640" height="360" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; fullscreen" allowfullscreen></iframe>
