Hi there, I have been trying for some hours now to get my head around the whole oAuth thing, but I don't seem to get it working. I want to retrieve thumbnails for private videos, using your advanced api. This is what I have right now:

$vimeo = new phpVimeo($consumer_key, $consumer_secret, $access_token, $access_token_secret);
$result = $vimeo->call('vimeo.videos.getThumbnailUrls', array('video_id ' => $video_id));

When I try it like this, I keep getting the error

"Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'VimeoAPIException' with message 'Invalid signature' ".

I'm absolutely positive that the keys and secrets are correct. Do I have to do more to make this thing work? Of course, it would be amazing to have an example where I just have to put in all my key data in and it works.

thanks in advance!

[edit] Also, can I somehow make code look nice, like in other forums? I've tried "code" and "pre" tags, but they don't work... thanks!

Ok, I am still having problems with this and need a solution asap. Is anyone at Vimeo maintaining the php library? Or does anyone know what the problem is and can help us fix it.

replace your result with this:

$video = $vimeo->call('vimeo.videos.getInfo', array('video_id' => $id));
$result = $video->video[0]->thumbnails->thumbnail[2]->_content;

*Set the thumbnail[x] to whatever size you want: 0 = small, 1=med, 2= large.

I hope this helps.

Sorry I'm late...
Can anyone post the full call code?
All I get is: Invalid consumer key
I really need help!

A friend helped me to get it...

$vid = 'vide id';
$key = 'your key';
$secret = 'your secret';

$vimeo = new phpVimeo($key, $secret);

$video = $vimeo->call('vimeo.videos.getInfo', array('video_id' => $vid));

$result0 = $video->video[0]->thumbnails->thumbnail[0]->_content;
$result1 = $video->video[0]->thumbnails->thumbnail[1]->_content;
$result2 = $video->video[0]->thumbnails->thumbnail[2]->_content;
#echo $result;

HTML starts here:
result0 is small
result1 is medium
result2 is large.
