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

Ridiculously responsive

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.

Beyond Beautiful

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.

Blazingly fast

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.

Amazing accessibility

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?

Customize to your taste

The player is yours to play with. Change its size and color, take out the playbar, add your logo, decide what videos play next, and more.

Vimeo On Demand

You can purchase works through Vimeo On Demand right from the player – the lion’s share of proceeds go directly to the creator.

It’s your turn to start playing.
