Is a Quicktime file still the best way to embed videos?
It seems Vimeo's new HTML 5 player supports stepping through the video frame by frame by using shift + left/right arrow keys.

Well that would be awesome if that was the case. I'll investigate and update my post. Thanks for the headsup!

Edit: Yea, it really works, unfortunately, though, it doesn't in the embedded player sad

Re: READ THIS IF YOU'RE HAVING TROUBLE EMBEDDING A VIDEO IN YOUR POST

Have you tested with an existing embedded video?

Vimeo it seems it has a new way of embedding the video, a player that uses HTML 5.
When clicking on the "+ Show settings" when sharing, there is a link "Use new/old embed code". Based on that the embed code changes and a different player is used.
Some existing embedded videos I guess are using the old embed code.

Please look at the video you've tested and see if it's flash by right-clicking on it.

I just find out that we just post a link to the video when embedding it. So, I guess the site doesn't use the new vimeo's player for embedding.

Just trying this out:
the link i typed in to embed the video below looks like this:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2SoZbIhaAes

Direct Link



the link i typed in to embed the video below looks like this:
http://dl.dropbox.com/s/eecpggexmlwjgql/wolforsheep02_01_v003.mp4

Direct Link



the link i typed in to embed the video below looks like this:
http://vimeo.com/47519414

               

Direct Link




See, everything's working.
If you tried Dropbox, you have probably had the problem that dropbox also creates a '?dl=0' behind the videolink.

It doesn't do that if the video is inside your public folder of dropbox, for whatever reason. Since not everyone has a public folder in Dropbox, I'll update my initial post, for to get it working, delete everything in the link after the file type extension and it should work (see above)
If you embedding still doesnt work, you are probably using a sharing service that prohibits video embedding.

well if you have Dropbox installed on your computer, there should be a rightclick menu for it where it either says 'copy public link' or 'share dropbox link' (at least on the windows version) and in the webpage version its evidently that big 'Share' button that appears when you hover the mouse over an item.

Hi! Sorry for taking a while, I found a glitch in embedding vimeo links, and posted a solution in my initial post. In your case, you have to provide a link to the video, not your vimeo channel. so, instead of this link:
http://vimeo.com/bkohls/animation, which looks like this:
http://vimeo.com/bkohls/animation
you need to use this link:
http://vimeo.com/154462184, which looks like this:
