When I use the normal embed code for a vimeo video on a web page, does vimeo automatically use http live streaming if the appropriate client is in use (i.e. iOS, Android, etc)? Or, do I have to do something in my web page in order for http live streaming to be employed?

No, we currently don't do this - sorry.

Sorry for the confusion. To clarify, we do not support live streaming.

Hi, sorry about that! It appears that I was the one who was confused. We do support http live streaming. And to answer your initial question, our normal embed code will not recognize when http live streaming is appropriate, nor will it automatically switch over to it. Consequently, you will need to use a third party player with the Http live streaming link in your video's Settings page for your video to play with http live streaming.

It is unclear as of now, but certainly something we'll keep in mind going forward. I unfortunately do not have any third party players to recommend. Sorry about that.

Where do we find the http live streaming link in video settings? Is this for just Pro accounts? Is http live streaming enabled on Vimeo?

This is just for PRO accounts, for use with a 3rd party player only.

Thank you. We build players and apps, can you supply a sample http live streaming link for testing and development?

We have upgraded to Pro account and I see the http live streaming link in the video settings, great.
Can we access this http live streaming link through the API providing the video ID?
