    Hi, thanks for this great component! I hope there will be new releases with more features! (installed on a 2.5 Joomla without problems)

      Yes! As you can see on the picture above there is a field for video source where you can put your vimeo ID.

    Privacy Issue:
    I really like your component – but ran into a problem after I purchased and set it up. My videos are set to private on Vimeo – and when I do that – my videos don’t display in Joomla. I can only see the videos if my videos are set in the privacy to “Anyone.” Can you please let me know if there is a work around for this? I am using the “User” setting to allow for only the PRIVATE videos that I upload to my Vimeo account.

      Hi Opie! Unfortunately the component does not support private video listing. However I played around a bit and I managed to implement a solution for this. Private video listing will be in the next release of the component. I try to send you the updated version in 1 or 2 days. Thanks!

      • zsitro

        Good news! New version has support for private videos. Please note that you need to have at least Vimeo Plus account to use this feature with the component.

    before i buy, I need more than one channel of videos does this component support multiple channels ans can a single channel be selected from a menu.

    • zsitro

      hi, each joomla page can represent only 1 video source. Like 1 channel or user or group or album. But you can organize any kind of video list on vimeo using an album or a channel.

    We have 3600 videos and 43 channels on vimeo. We want to have a link on menu to show each channel.
    is it possible to import each channel separately and have a link on menu to show them on website?


    • zsitro

      Hi, with this component the only thing you can do in this case that you create 43 separate pages for each channel. Then you can reference those pages in your “Channels” page. But I guess it’s not very optimal for you. This component doesn’t have a “list of channels” type of view. I hope I answered your question.

    • zsitro

      If your question is that whether you can preset volume for vimeo embeds: no, you can’t.

    Hi. I installed the plugin and followed the instructions to display an Album but when I click the link no videos show. All i see is the page heading and a “Next” button. No videos show. Please advise what problem could be.
