The Vimeo Player
Watch in amazement.
Our player has a single goal: make your videos look amazing, anywhere they appear.
The Best Way to Watch
The player defaults to HTML5 to provide the most elegant viewing experience on desktop, mobile, and tablet. It responds to its locations to dynamically load design elements and assure optimal viewing.
Your videos look better on Vimeo because we respect them. We play them in the highest quality, showcase them in a clean design, and never put ads before, after, or on top of them.
The latest player is the swiftest one ever. We rebuilt it from the ground up to be simpler, lighter, and smarter, with a focus on improving connection and load speeds.
Fully complying to WCAG 2.0 AA support, the player plays nice with screen readers and voiceover software, plus creators can add closed captioning and translated subtitles to their videos.
What can you do with it?
Hit the little heart in the upper right corner of a video to show your appreciation and give the creator a virtual high-five.
