Just wanted to do a friendly follow up for some Vimeo love!

I "almost" got it to work. When I am initially making a post and click the Insert Link button I just paste in all of the embed code from Vimeo. The video will then show up right in here and be playable! Yeah, a good start!

However, as soon as you hit Submit or Preview for your post it is completely blank. Boo

Any updates if Vimeo embedding is in the works or has anyone figured out how to do it yet???

Just a short video I took of our cabin (U88) in January 2017 (grand suite). I should have left the video making to the professionals ! LOL The fan hanging from the ceiling is mine. I took a 10 inch box fan and used superglue to attach extra strong magnets from my local hardware store. It works great and stays in place. Hope my video helps anyone wanting to see this cabin before booking.

Was there ever a resolution for this? I'm getting the same problem "blank" post even with a YouTube video code.
