Vimeo Video

The Vimeo plugins enable federated searches of Vimeo videos directly from the Brightspot search panel. External content retrieved from a third-party repository can optionally be imported into Brightspot and used as any other asset. For more information, see Federated search and import.

There are two Vimeo plugins, a feature plugin and a content plugin. The feature plugin is required, as it provides federated searches of Vimeo images. These resources are retrieved in an external data type format, and can only be viewed in Brightspot as read only. If you want the capability to import Vimeo resources into Brightspot, the Vimeo content plugin must also be enabled.

The Vimeo plugins require the following:

  • Vimeo enterprise account, allowing any editor to retrieve Vimeo videos.
  • Client ID and Client Secret to configure the Vimeo feature plugin. To find these values, go to your Vimeo My Apps page and select your application.
