Vue wrapper for Vimeo Embed Player

npm Conventional Commits vue2

The Vue vimeo player allows you to use the Vimeo player as a Vue component with ease, even with Nuxt.js SSR.


Using npm:

npm install vue-vimeo-player --save

of load it via CDN

<script src="//unpkgd.com/vue-vimeo-player"></script>

Getting Started

You can either import it in your whole project

import vueVimeoPlayer from 'vue-vimeo-player'
import Vue from 'vue'


or import it locally in a component

  import { vueVimeoPlayer } from 'vue-vimeo-player'
  export default {
  	data: {},
  	components: { vueVimeoPlayer }

Usage without module bundler

Just include the script from the CDN and you are good to go.

<script src="//unpkg.com/vue@2.4"></script>
<script src="//unpkg.com/vue-vimeo-player"></script>
<!-- .... -->
<vimeo-player :video-id='videoId'></vimeo-player>	

Usage with Nuxt.js

As we know Nuxt.js allows the really cool advantage of Server Side Rendering, but this means there is no window variable. To fix this, we need to tell Nuxt.js to skip rendering our component on the server and render it just on the Browser

We need to create a file inside the plugins directory called vimeo-player.js or what ever you see fit.

// plugins/vimeo-player.js
import Vue from 'vue'
import vueVimeoPlayer from 'vue-vimeo-player'


Now we need to tell Nuxt to load our plugin inside nuxt.config.js

// ....
plugins: [
    { src: `~plugins/vimeo-player`, ssr: false }
build: {
    vendor: [
// ....

Using the component

Another option is to use the no-ssr component to wrap the vue-vimeo component in the template.

  <vimeo-player ref="player" :video-id="videoID"/>
