Interactive Video: Vimeo Support

Does the interactive video support vimeo videos. I am currently trying to create an  interactive video using the Wordpress Plugin but i keep getting "Unknown" and Found no video players that support the given video format

For the moment, interactive video supports youtube and uploaded video-files.

Supporting Vimeo would be a good addition, I suggest you add an issue here:

In new editor I see that: "H5P supports all external video sources formatted as mp4, webm or ogv, like Vimeo Pro". When I' trying to add link from Vimeo Pro I see "Found no video players that supports the given video format." How I can use it video from Vimeo?

Thank you in advanced

Make sure that you're using the direct link to the video source, ending in .mp4, .webm or .ogv. 

Support for using the Vimeo player as a source for interactive videos hasn't been added because that would involve having a double set of video controls. That is because the unique look of their player is part of their branding. Vimeo doesn't offer a chromeless player like YouTube does.

I don't believe there is an option to link to the video source on vimeo. I use Vimeo because it has the facility to control access to content by URL, meaning I can embed my videos on my website and restrict access from everywhere else. This facility is not available on YouTube and I don't want to self-host all of my video content.

I can't use Interactive Video unless Vimeo is supported.

Using Vimeo Pro, you will find a settings page that contains direct links to mp4 files of your videos in different resolutions. Downside: as far as I know, those links don't respect the privacy settings that you can use to restrict access to the videos. Since the Vimeo API does not allow to completely get rid of/replace the Vimeo Player elements, there's probably no way to include it in H5P.
